Best Engine Hoists: Lift Your Engine in Seconds
Engine work doesn’t have to be strenuous if you have one of these top engine hoists
This remote-operated engine hoist can lift up to 2,200 pounds at the click of a button.
The remote control is attached to a 6-foot long cord for safe operation. The hoist has a double-line pulley, and each line can lift 1,100 pounds. The pulley is made of galvanized steel, making the hoist very durable. The 1,450-watt electric motor allows you to lift an engine at 33fpm on single-line capacity.
You cannot run this hoist without power. You’ll also need a strong base to minimize the possibility of collapsing.
This powerful hoist makes lifting 4,000 pounds—in different settings—look easy.
It features a cold-rolled steel cover that keeps the chain link and gears safe. The high-quality steel used to make the chain, hook, and latch bears the stamp of safety and durability. The black oxide finish keeps the chain grime free. The hoist is made of heavy-duty steel and is very sturdy.
The steel quality could be improved. The chain is not built for daily use, especially in a busy setting.
With this hydraulic lift, you won’t worry about lifting any load, as it has the capacity to lift up to two tons.
The load leveler lifts loads in a stable and uniform manner with minimal effort. The entire unit is painted with top-shelf, lead-free paint to keep it free from rust, even in humid conditions. Once folded, it takes up minimal space. It is perfect for a mobile workspace, thanks to its six casters.
The handle is not slip proof and may take some getting used to. The reinforced boom is not extendable.
