- Very good lift for the price Review by Greg
Price Value Quality
Overall I think this is a very good hoist. The nicest feature of this hoist is the cylinder valve. It is spring loaded so if let go it returns to a position where the engine will come down slowly. Very Nice feature! I compared other hoist at the same price point and rating. The decision for me was the weight, this hoist publishes 240 lbs, other 2 ton hoists were as light as 135lbs, I think that goes directly to the gauge of steel used in the construction. I had no assembly problems, all holes lined up etc, but the directions left a little to be desired. Paint on the hoist is not the best, but I did not get it for show, so that is OK in my book. My biggest complaint is there was a lot of steel shot in the boxes, a couple of the casters don't swivel smoothly, I expect there is a piece of shot in the bearing, hopefully it works its way out. Contrary to the Q&A which indicates this is made in Michigan, it has Made in China stickers. If you are picking it up in the store, make sure you get both boxes.
Overall I would recommend
