Thread: Engine Hoist
05-29-2010, 07:59 PM #1
I'm getting ready to pull the motor out of my pro 1200 and was going to get a hoist at harbour freight this weekend. What kind of hoist do you guys use on your skis?

You need a hoist to get the engine out?
Once the exhaust and intake are off, it doesn't weigh THAT much.
As long as the hoist can slide under the trailer or PWC stand, almost anything that has enough lift range can do the job. Remember that the engine needs to clear the hull, so the hoist lift range must cover that distance.

I want to get something small that I can put in my garage that has a small footprint. My back is weak so I want to get something that can aid me without injuring myself. The hoist that I have seen at are pretty big capable of taking a motor out of a car or light truck but not as small as I'd like.

I have a 2000lb lift I bought at harbor frieght. was 199.00 sale 149.00 leaves a 3 foot by 3 foot footprint folded up.
usually i just take the exhaust pipe and the carbs off and it comes right out easily. just do it with 2 people.. its about 75 lbs like that..
i never have used anything but a neighbor! or find a couple 15 year olds to pull it out for ya. there always ready to do stuff. its an ENGINE TOOO!!! look! ohhh what kind? A broken one!
