    Almost sh*t myself

    Pulling the engine out of my rxp by hand. I really didn't think it would weigh that much! Anyone know the weight? Next time i'll get my picker out.

    yeah, i'm going to weld up a square tube ( swing set ) to go above it with a chain hoist like that.

    The funny thing is tho, an H22A/H23A or B18's hondas weigh around 135 LBS. I'm going to find a way to shoe horn one in

    A folding hydraulic cherry-picker was the best $200 I ever spent (on sale btw). I lift and pull everything with it. Folds up fairly compact so it doesn't take up much room and is a breeze to move around.

    I just bought a 2 ton hydralic lift from harbour freight for 150 bucks. It was on sell as usually is 229.99.
    It folds up and will suffiecently lift the skis.

    Probably the cheapest investment i have made on the skis dollar per weight wise.

    What sucks is the sling to lift the skis cost more then the lift.
