Thread: Engine hoists

    Engine hoists

    Anything I need to look out for when buying one? I've never used one. I shouldn't need it for anything too heavy, normal toyota gas engines, random heavy objects around the house, picking up a transmission from the shipping place by myself, etc.

    I got one of the "Goodyear" brand ones from Sams club for $169 (I think). It has been great! It handled my 3VZE and 1UZ on the longest throw with ease.

    I think it is a 2 ton. It depends on how much boom you have hanging out. At the longest boom, it's 1/2ton. Shortest it's 2 ton. There are pin positions for 1 1/2 and 1 also. I don't have any pics of the hoist by itself, but there is likely one in my engine swap thread.

    This is the best pic I have with me. I can take better shots when I get home.

    I bought mine from Tractor Supply. I think I paid $129 for it. Same specs as Cebby's. Mine is red.

    Mine is from Harbor Freight, they are all pretty much the same. Just pick what color you want.
