Hello NESIC. I've got an engine hoist that I do NOT want to get rid of. But it's not like I use it all the time, and I'd like it to be used rather than sitting collecting dust and rust and not being used. It's old and seen better days, but it works great. The hydraulic ram loses zero pressure on it as far as my experience goes. It comes with a load leveler too.
I would need a $100 deposit. That will allow you to keep it for a week, and you will receive the full $100 back upon return of it. Anything beyond a week is $10 a day non-refundable.
I do also have an engine stand. Almost brand new. $50 deposit for that, and again, that'll get you 7 days with a full refund. $5/day beyond that.
I don't know if there's any call for this, but I'm putting it out there. I am located near Storrs/UCONN, CT. You can pick up, or I can drop off for a fee.
