This engine crane has a maximum weight capacity of 2,000kg but can also lift 500kg with the jib extended fully. The outrigger arms can easily be folded for transport or storage in the workshop. There are six cast steel castors to allow easy mobility. The lifting range is 25-2,000mm so an engine can be lifted clear out of the engine bay with little effort. The widely splayed outrigger arms will allow this crane to be used to lift machines or other heavy items around the workshop. Well built and nicely designed, this crane is an excellent piece of equipment for the workshop or warehouse.

Good, but welding flakeyThe spot welding on the extension legs on mine was poor, I had to grind off some blobs and add a couple of spot welds where they were missing.

Good and solid.Have been using one of these as an engine hoist for the past three year. In general it does what it should. However there are just a few minor things that could be corrected. The beam locating pin is a bolt which would be better served with a solid pin and R clip as used on the legs. The hydraulic pump could be a dual stroke rather than single as it take a lot of strokes to get it into a typical start position. The chain fixing to the boom could be improved. Overall its a pretty good hoist for the price.

Way better than I expectedPutting together a new workshop with some heavy kit I looked into renting this sort of tool only to find that with delivery/collection and the rest I could buy this of Administer for the same price as a weeks hire. So I did not expect much, but I thought if it only lasts a few lifts it will save me a few pounds. That it was not listed as heavy delivery service added to the cheap, lightweight and cheerful perception.
