Next we take a look at one of the simpler styles of hoists. This chain style engine lift from Black Bull may not quite have the lifting capacity of some other hoists on our list, but it is still brings a lot to the table.
First and foremost is size – or in this instance the lack of it. This hoist weighs only 18 pounds and measures less than 10 inches across. That easily makes it one of the smallest hoists on our list. Despite this it is still able to generate up to a ton of lifting power. That is very impressive in such a space saving, easy to store product.
