Choosing the best electric hoist generally comes down to two things: reliability and capacity. Since we have done the research to ensure all the models on this list are reliable, you'll only have to take one thing into consideration when making your buying decision — lifting capacity. If you work in a commercial shop that often needs to hoist very heavy objects, your best options are going to be the Arksen 018-HO-18038, Goplus 1320, and BeamNova 70021863, as these can lift 2,000, 1,320, and 1,500 pounds respectively. The Champion 18890 and Steel Dragon Tools SDT-EWH0880 have an 880-pound capacity when set up in a double-line configuration, and half that when in a single-line configuration. The Sportsman Series E-Hoist UL and Shop Fox D4070 are the weakest models on our list with just a 440-pound capacity. For a versatile option, consider the Warn PullzAll, which allows for both vertical and horizontal operation.
