Hoist Stand Doubles As Engine Stand
Our new hoist stand doubles as an engine stand to save space and time. Built from 4 by 6-in. steel tubing, the stand is equipped with extendable legs and an extendable telescoping lift arm on the mast. A pair of hydraulic cylinders, controlled by a hand pump and divider valve, are used to maneuver the mast, which is hinged at two points. You set the arm and legs in the extended position to lift the engine out of the vehicle and lower it onto the floor. Then shorten up the arm and legs, pick up the engine and mount it on a swivel bracket attached to the mast.
The hoist has a 4,000-lb. lift capacity when retracted and a 2,000-lb. capacity when fully extended. The stand/hoist combo folds up to a 3 by 4-ft. area for storage. Sells for $1,595. (Dennis McGuire, American Mfg., Hogeland, Mont. 59529 ph 406 379-2676)
