That seems a bit high priced to me.

Harbor Freight has them for $219 brand new.

I just noticed the ad says 300 tons, it's probably 3 tons.

That was my first thought.
Maybe it was some real high quality paint he used.

And $800? Wow, he shops at expensive places! I bought an 3 ton air over hydraulic one for under $200!

I agree 100% Kenny, it is just no longer orange. But hey if he used quality paint, that can be very pricey nowadays !!

300 Tons??
I must have the wrong link......even 3 tons (6000 pounds) seems like more than this thing is capable of lifting.

My HF lift is a 2000 pound and I would be scared of going that high with it. That is definitely a HF cherry picker Mine is identical.

Maybe it's metric... 300 tons in CANADIAN is oh, about 300 kilograms... :)

300 metric tons would be 300,000kg. Somehow I don't think that hoist is up to it!

BUT, what if it is capable of that lift, and you didn't buy it?
You'd be kicking yourself for ever. :(

You have an Elf You don't have to lift anything anymore. The Elf just magically shrinks it to a convenient size then unshrinks it after you move it.
