    Ordered 2 Ton engine crane via website
    Ordered 2 Ton engine crane via website. Delivery was by pallet 2 days later. The crane is extremely sturdy and easy to assemble, you need a few spanners and sockets but its a reasonable assumption if your buying one of these you'll already have those. So far I'm really happy with the service and product from SGS.

    Excellent value and does exactly what you need
    "Firstly the service from SGS was great with the crane arriving the next morning. It was shipped in two boxes but the one containing the main spars is very heavy and quite long.
    The crane is very well designed and easy to assemble but you need quite a few sizes of socket or spanner for this. Some bolts are left in when supplied to help you put the right ones in the correct locations.
    This crane lifted a 3.0 24v Alfa V6 with gearbox with ease and lifted it high enough to clear the front of the car. The 6 wheels also made it easy to move on a concrete floor.
    Stows away quite neatly too."

    Excellent Peice of Kit
    Was looking for a hoist to change an engine in a Land Rover Discovery 2. Most other hoists at this money could not manage the height/weight at full reach but this hoist's spec shows it can - and it does!

    Easy to set up and use as is clearly well made. Moving the hoist with engine on was easy even over an old tarmac drive.

    I bought with the leveler and the two together gave great control over the removal/installing of the engine.

    If you have any doubts about this hoist but need to do any heavy lifting don't have. Stay within the specs and this will do it.

    Would recommend using this company. My dad put me on to them and everything we have had, customer service and delivery has been excellent.

    Arrived fast even for North Scotland. So far this has pulled a 4.2 V6 out of a Daimler with gearbox may I add!! , a 2.5 out of a BMW and several hours before I write this a 4.0 from a Jeep Cherokee. I cannot recommend this highly enough for performance. Get the load leveler that goes with it also it is a cracking piece of kit. We will be buying another of these soon without hesitation.

    Quality easy to use and affordable
    I needed a engine crane quickly on a limited budget to remove a old Land rover engine, put in my trailer and take home.
    Rang SGS to order, couldn't be easier, polite knowledgeable staff. Arrived the day & time I requested, Really easy to assemble and only takes a few minutes to break down in to 5 manageable parts to easily fit in the back of my VW Passat Estate. Used for job yesterday and it's so easy to use, control and the build quality is superb. Real value for money. Already used again for a Trolley Jack. Many thanks Steve

    fantastic
    Update to my last review dated 05/04/2014. So I finally got to use it.
    I was very impressed. I keep it under my stairs in the cupboard disassembled with only the wheels attached for convenient storage. I got the whole thing back together in 10 minutes. It lifted out my fiat punto engine with gearbox attached from the top. That's right from the top and the book and others said it can't be done. Anyway. The crane is easy to use and robust. Confidence is is a great thing when lifting out an engine and my crane made ease of the job which sadly only took a few minutes to actually remove the engine. I wanted to use it for much longer. Was amazed at how much travel there is with the lifting arm considering my car was Jacked way up and began lifting from the mid way point. The engine cleared the engine bay with ease and Still had much more travel left in the arm. When lowering it is precise and can be controlled extremely slowly for accurate positioning of the engine. I never write reviews but thought I should with this one. Best tool I have ever bought and best price. Thanks SGS

    Fantastic
    I'll start with the delivery. Friendly, polite and very helpful. The guy actually delivered it right inside the house. The price is brilliant as I have always wanted one of this but they used to be very expensive and can not find cheaper anywhere else.
    Quality , I am very fussy when it comes to quality . In some cases I will make do but when safety is priority I want a tool that's reliable and strong. The metal is very thick and well constructed , well painted to protect against rust. When assembled it's very big . It's crane action is more then what I need. OK I haven't used it yet but can not see any problem. After doing my chin ups on it I realised it had many uses. Maybe use it for a punch bag holder whilst not in use. Anyway. It folds down but not enough to take up little space in the under stairs cupboard. Remove just 8 main bolts to separate and lay everything flat and take up less space in under 15 minutes. Happy. Oh make sure you grease up the ball bearings on the caster wheels, axles and pivot bolts. I keep the hydraulic ram closed and covered to protect from moisture.

    A pleasure to deal with, the engine crane I ordered was delivered quickly for such a large item. The courier even helped me manoeuvre the boxes towards my garage as I would have really struggled on my own.

    Assembly took me about 30 mins but was no great difficulty, you probably shouldn't be removing an engine if you can't assemble the crane first! Quality is excellent and the price is also very good.

    I ordered the 2 ton engine hoist as the price here was very competitive.

    Communications were good and it arrived on time, which was very quick in fact, practically next day I think. I was appreciative of this as I needed to press on and assemble it before the weekend to complete some work.

    Used it for lifting all sorts of heavy items around the workshop including engines and gearboxes of course.

    All in, very pleased with the service.

    This is a quality engine hoist that can be easily put together in 30 mins. As others have said here don't fully tighten the bolts until everything is attached. The build quality is fantastic for the price. It lifted a 3.5 V8 engine and gearbox out of my car with no problem and is now folded up and sat in the corner of my garage waiting for the next job. Just what I wanted.

    Purchased the 2 tonne version last week, delivered next day, the following day lifted out my MK 2 Jag engine with gearbox attached with no effort. Fantastic bit of kit, don't know how I have survived without it.
    If I could find one thing that I would adapt it would be the width of the outriggers, they may be a little wide for a smaller vehicle.

    Great value hoist. No missing hardware or parts. Make sure that you don't fully tighten bolts until all of them are in place for the section you're working on, I tightened the two main post bolts to the base but then had to loosen them off again because I couldn't line up the bolts with the holes for the flat support bars. I would definately recommend this hoist due to it's quality and price.

    Cheaper than renting
    I bought one of these and it has worked brilliantly. I have pulled motors from cars and 4x4's even though the trucks did require I remove the front tyres or radiator support to get the front end low enough. The first job I used it was for pulling motor from one car, pulling the original motor then installing first motor. After looking into renting a hoist I found it was cheaper to buy this one and I have been able to use it many times since.

    Excellent and value for money
    Excellent and value for money 2 tonne engine hoist. Very robust construction. The hoist was delivered promptly and was easily assembled with the clear instructions provided and a few spanners. I was very impressed with both the item and the service. I have no reservations in recommending this product and SGS Engineering.

    Ordered 2 Ton engine crane via website
    Ordered 2 Ton engine crane via website. Delivery was by pallet 2 days later. The crane is extremely sturdy and easy to assemble, you need a few spanners and sockets but its a reasonable assumption if your buying one of these you'll already have those. So far I'm really happy with the service and product from SGS.

    Excellent value and does exactly what you need
    "Firstly the service from SGS was great with the crane arriving the next morning. It was shipped in two boxes but the one containing the main spars is very heavy and quite long.
    The crane is very well designed and easy to assemble but you need quite a few sizes of socket or spanner for this. Some bolts are left in when supplied to help you put the right ones in the correct locations.
    This crane lifted a 3.0 24v Alfa V6 with gearbox with ease and lifted it high enough to clear the front of the car. The 6 wheels also made it easy to move on a concrete floor.
    Stows away quite neatly too."

    Excellent Peice of Kit
    Was looking for a hoist to change an engine in a Land Rover Discovery 2. Most other hoists at this money could not manage the height/weight at full reach but this hoist's spec shows it can - and it does!

    Easy to set up and use as is clearly well made. Moving the hoist with engine on was easy even over an old tarmac drive.

    I bought with the leveler and the two together gave great control over the removal/installing of the engine.

    If you have any doubts about this hoist but need to do any heavy lifting don't have. Stay within the specs and this will do it.

    Would recommend using this company. My dad put me on to them and everything we have had, customer service and delivery has been excellent.

    A superb piece of equipment
    Arrived fast even for North Scotland. So far this has pulled a 4.2 V6 out of a Daimler with gearbox may I add!! , a 2.5 out of a BMW and several hours before I write this a 4.0 from a Jeep Cherokee. I cannot recommend this highly enough for performance. Get the load leveler that goes with it also it is a cracking piece of kit. We will be buying another of these soon without hesitation.

    Quality easy to use and affordable
    I needed a engine crane quickly on a limited budget to remove a old Land rover engine, put in my trailer and take home.
    Rang SGS to order, couldn't be easier, polite knowledgeable staff. Arrived the day & time I requested, Really easy to assemble and only takes a few minutes to break down in to 5 manageable parts to easily fit in the back of my VW Passat Estate. Used for job yesterday and it's so easy to use, control and the build quality is superb. Real value for money. Already used again for a Trolley Jack. Many thanks Steve

    fantastic
    Update to my last review dated 05/04/2014. So I finally got to use it.
    I was very impressed. I keep it under my stairs in the cupboard disassembled with only the wheels attached for convenient storage. I got the whole thing back together in 10 minutes. It lifted out my fiat punto engine with gearbox attached from the top. That's right from the top and the book and others said it can't be done. Anyway. The crane is easy to use and robust. Confidence is is a great thing when lifting out an engine and my crane made ease of the job which sadly only took a few minutes to actually remove the engine. I wanted to use it for much longer. Was amazed at how much travel there is with the lifting arm considering my car was Jacked way up and began lifting from the mid way point. The engine cleared the engine bay with ease and Still had much more travel left in the arm. When lowering it is precise and can be controlled extremely slowly for accurate positioning of the engine. I never write reviews but thought I should with this one. Best tool I have ever bought and best price. Thanks SGS

    Fantastic
    I'll start with the delivery. Friendly, polite and very helpful. The guy actually delivered it right inside the house. The price is brilliant as I have always wanted one of this but they used to be very expensive and can not find cheaper anywhere else.
    Quality , I am very fussy when it comes to quality . In some cases I will make do but when safety is priority I want a tool that's reliable and strong. The metal is very thick and well constructed , well painted to protect against rust. When assembled it's very big . It's crane action is more then what I need. OK I haven't used it yet but can not see any problem. After doing my chin ups on it I realised it had many uses. Maybe use it for a punch bag holder whilst not in use. Anyway. It folds down but not enough to take up little space in the under stairs cupboard. Remove just 8 main bolts to separate and lay everything flat and take up less space in under 15 minutes. Happy. Oh make sure you grease up the ball bearings on the caster wheels, axles and pivot bolts. I keep the hydraulic ram closed and covered to protect from moisture.

    Excellent
    A pleasure to deal with, the engine crane I ordered was delivered quickly for such a large item. The courier even helped me manoeuvre the boxes towards my garage as I would have really struggled on my own.

    Assembly took me about 30 mins but was no great difficulty, you probably shouldn't be removing an engine if you can't assemble the crane first! Quality is excellent and the price is also very good.

    Very pleased
    I ordered the 2 ton engine hoist as the price here was very competitive.

    Communications were good and it arrived on time, which was very quick in fact, practically next day I think. I was appreciative of this as I needed to press on and assemble it before the weekend to complete some work.

    Used it for lifting all sorts of heavy items around the workshop including engines and gearboxes of course.

    All in, very pleased with the service.

    Just what I wanted
    This is a quality engine hoist that can be easily put together in 30 mins. As others have said here don't fully tighten the bolts until everything is attached. The build quality is fantastic for the price. It lifted a 3.5 V8 engine and gearbox out of my car with no problem and is now folded up and sat in the corner of my garage waiting for the next job. Just what I wanted.

    ordered it and came very quick im a metal worker and can see this is a quality hoist all box section is 3mm minimum,some may be thicker material.
    I used it to lift my 500kg fly press off of its bench and it made easy work of it.only thing is that on the releaser on the pump has a really little pin which keeps falling out but I will tack weld this later

    I was very impressed with the finish and quality of the crane, it is very sturdy. We put it together with no issues, you do need to ensure that you do not tighten the bolts until the whole thing is together or things won't line up though.

    Great Value, Great Quality.
    Purchased the 2 tonne version last week, delivered next day, the following day lifted out my MK 2 Jag engine with gearbox attached with no effort. Fantastic bit of kit, don't know how I have survived without it.
    If I could find one thing that I would adapt it would be the width of the outriggers, they may be a little wide for a smaller vehicle.

    Great value
    Great value hoist. No missing hardware or parts. Make sure that you don't fully tighten bolts until all of them are in place for the section you're working on, I tightened the two main post bolts to the base but then had to loosen them off again because I couldn't line up the bolts with the holes for the flat support bars. I would definately recommend this hoist due to it's quality and price.

    Cheaper than renting
    I bought one of these and it has worked brilliantly. I have pulled motors from cars and 4x4's even though the trucks did require I remove the front tyres or radiator support to get the front end low enough. The first job I used it was for pulling motor from one car, pulling the original motor then installing first motor. After looking into renting a hoist I found it was cheaper to buy this one and I have been able to use it many times since.
