The 6 Best Engine Hoists
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Removing an engine from a vehicle would be nearly impossible without a heavy-duty lift capable of safely suspending thousands of pounds. With one of the models on this list you can do so without the aid of 10 of your closest friends, so you can work on your car at your leisure. Many of the units we've selected are also suitable for commercial shops and can stand up to daily use for years. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Safety was of the utmost importance when finding the best engine hoists. For that reason we excluded any models that appeared to have low-quality construction or didn't provide the needed stability for suspending very heavy objects.
