Where abouts in the country are you?
Could have a bearing on any offers - particularly if somebody has one locally they might be in a position to loan you - just a thought.

No good to me as I don't have any sort of frame to fix it to. That would need a garage or a very strong framed structure!

Re: WANTED: Cheap engine hoist

have you investigated your local "yellow pages" or "thomson" directory for  TOOL HIRE companies....  Even builders merchants may have a mobile hoist that would be suitable for the day or weekend hire.... Huh
