Was going to town with the Grandson to pick up a radiator, and saw a yard sale sign and took a detour. They had this marked as $75.00, and the Grandson was oohing and awing sooooo much I got it for $50.00. He loves it! (me too in a way) but I see some time down the road when the stuffing's are coming out of the bags, a possible modification to the frame to use as a rolling LGT engine hoist.

Why not? I picked up a rusty Hoya Lift at the transfer station years ago. It is hydraulic and is used for lifting handicapped people. I cleanned it up and modified it in about 2 hours. It now is excellant for pulling motors or anything up to 400 pounds. Good Luck, Rick

sounds like what I used once in high school helping a friend in changing a 4 cyl  motor in a 74 Mustang... his Dad was a Quad and a big guy... that boom was straining and bowing but it did the job and never bent over or broke.. 400 lb capacity sounds about right

I sold the punching bag, and may be getting the HF 1000lb folding shop hoist now.
