MotoMaster 2-Ton Hydraulic Engine Crane
All told this went together well but when mounting one rear caster the threads were poorly cut/formed so I had to drill out 2 holes to fit slightly larger bolts as the bolts supplied could not be threaded into the factory holes.
Good value, but I bought it at 45% off which made it a "best Buy"

Good buy to make things easier
I bought the leveller and this hoist and it made pulling a 2 liter engine and tranny easy. It not only helped get the motor out, but I also used it to work on the motor and tranny after it was out. I would hook onto various parts of the motor to lay it on its side or whatever to drain better or work on the crank and that was nice, as I couldn't use the motor stand because of the tranmission being left on the motor.
The one problem is the wheels are steel and they don't roll with weight on them. They drag, skid and squeel and you have to jerk the stand with all your might to move it on cement. I would think four or five inch rubber wheels would solve that. Then this would be a really great buy.

This is a very heavy constructed Piece, easy to assemble and works great

pleased with overall performance
pulled the 4cyl engine in my willys jeep effortlessly (est. 500lbs) , lifted eng while still on stand and let it sit overnight only lowered few inches.
the jack handle is used to lower engine also by turning release pin , a knob on release pin would be better for quick up/down adjustments.
during assembly needed sledge hammer to pound the legs in (tight fit), several of the bolts were deformed but still fit ok
over all the unit worked just fine
will keep it around for next project of lifting jeep tub off frame
