If you’ve ever found yourself in need of an engine crane, you could very easily find yourself trying to sift through the wide array of options from various manufacturers. While most seem to depict decent quality, there’s certainly a price gap between most options and that could add to the confusion of many buyers. In addition, most of those same customers find themselves in the market for an engine stand at the same time, for when the engine is actually out of the car
An interesting option that just slid across our desk, is this shop crane/engine stand from Summit Racing. Designed to pair the two components together, which eases the process and essentially eliminates a step.
Summit Racing Shop Crane with Engine Stand Makes Engine Installation a Breeze
A Summit Racing Shop Crane with Engine Stand makes installing or removing an engine a lot less stressful. It has an integrated engine stand positioned under the boom, forming a strong, sturdy base that is much easier and safer to use than manhandling a separate crane and stand.
The heavy-duty steel crane is rated to handle up to two tons, and features a strong hydraulic cylinder, a four-position boom, and 3.5 inch casters for easy movement around the shop. The engine stand has a 1,000 pound capacity, plus an adjustable 360-degree swivel head to make engine positioning easier. And when you want to work on the engine or use the crane for another task, the engine stand can be detached by removing two pins.
The Summit Racing Shop Crane with Engine Stand folds up for storage when not in use. Use it once and you’ll wonder how you ever did engine work without it.
