I used mine to move 2 International Scout engines from storage. (talk about boat anchors)I have both the folding and non-folding models. Both wid the job without a wimper. Ive removed and replaced 2 other engines as well. Both times I had zero problems.

This crane has, for the most part, worked very well for me. It spent one winter outside under a tarp, which dulled the paint, but nothing else. It was all folded up, so no rust on the cylinder rod.

I did have one major problem with it... while moving a machine one of the cast iron wheels at the end of the legs broke apart which offset theload and dropped the machine. No one was hurt, so it could have been a lot worse. After that I turned new wheels out of 3.5" CRS and haven't had any issues since

If you're lifting anything over 1000 lbs, you need to do something about those wheels, elsewise, it's a nice tool for the money

another great buy for the money! as far as the ram rusting? a carport IS outside, no? and if the ram is below the seal when stored there should not be any rust unless you have water in your cylinder! covered and left outside on concrete will breed condensation duh!

bought mine in late 04-early 05. mine is red in color however. has worked good but after having it less than a yrs the cylinder has rusted where it goes into the ram, and this has never spent a night uncovered or in the rain. this was always under my car port. this is the first time I have seen a hydralic cylinder aka ram rust and i have worked around hydralics all my life.

Lets loads drop slowly but is VERY useful for the price, folds up and gets out of the way sort of. Strap the folded up legs with a bungee or they will swing out a little and throw you off balance and might hit you in the head. The white steel jacking pipe falls out of the holder. And the whole thing is hard to balance when folded and rolling over rough or uneven surfaces. But overall good buy. I have had mine for 4 years and lifted motorcycles, engines, etc. Don't try to pull a stump with it though, it will bend the legs.

I agree with the first reviewer. I have owned it for ~2 yrs and have pulled/installed 3 engines and moved around heavy equipment with it and it works well every time.
