The latest harbor freight circular has the engine hoist for 99.99. About half of what it would normally cost. I am seriously debating getting it even though I don't need one right now.

Coupons

Silentpoet, in magazines they run those coupons on the Hoists for $99 all the time. If you want to wait I would. If you decide you need it you can always print a coupon online and a HF store will accept it.

If its the 1 1/2 ton-hoist, I recommend skipping it. I remember reading the reviews on the HF website and some users said that the boom was long enough to work on small cars, but not big ones. I went to HF right after and it did seem rather small. I ended up buying the 2 ton unit for $158-ish out the door as it was on sale for $179.99 and I was able to use the 20% off coupon. At the time, they were clearing out some discontinued 2 1/2 ton units for $149.99, and had priced the newer 2 ton higher.

Adam is right: those prices in magazine coupons are there all the time. I know HF usually drops prices around Thanksgiving / Christmas, so if you don't have a need for one but want to get a good deal, it may be worth waiting for until then.

Not sure how easily available a hoist is in your area, or how much they are used, but if you have the space and do buy one, you can make some decent money renting it out.

CORRECTION: The hoist I had in mind for $99 is the 1 ton, not a 1 1/2 ton, which HF doesn't carry anyway. The 1 ton suffers from the short boom. There is a $10 difference between the 1 ton and the larger 2 ton. Sorry for any confusion.

I know this is a different tool than what is being discussed here but since it is often used for the same purpose I thought I would mention it too because it is also on sale right now. About 8 or 9 years ago I bought the three ton chain hoist to use for Tractor and Bulldozer parts and since it was so cheap I did not expect much but this thing has turned out to be a really good tool that has held up well under a lot more and heavier use than most home shops would use it for. Last year I bought the little 1 ton version (they are all identical except for size) and it too has been worth a heck of a lot more than it cost. The only complaint I have about these things is the chains have no corrosion resistance at all, none, and must be kept oiled and out of the weather but then even the CM brand this is copied from should not be left outside. I just wanted to mention these because IMO they are one of HF's better buys on a very handy tool and a real bargain when on sale!


This is the 2 ton version but the others are the same except for size.

I have about given up trying to use the darn things, seems everything worthwhile is in the "can not be used for" list! My Snap-On tool box is still in good shape but I decided to retire my Craftsman box due to age, gross overloading and a past accident from several years ago making it to look like a refugee from a scrap yard but now I see the coupons can not be used for tool boxes either.

Around the time these restrictions were first advertised, one of the assistant managers at the local HF went off on a rant when I tried using the 20% coupon on the cheapo welder for $99.99. He kept complaining nonstop as he stepped outside to help me load my stuff. According to him, the original owner had turned the business to his hard-partying son, who then proceeded to kick his dad out completely. Supposedly the partying cost the company so much, they had to put those restrictions on the coupons to recover their losses. According to him, they (the brass) were also cutting back on employee hours and stalling on hiring during Christimas time.

No idea how true this be...

Yep it's true and there was a lot of info about it floating around the 'net a year or so ago, it even made the national news. Apparently the son was an extravagant spender more so than partying however, buying large boats, multiple homes and even expensive paintings, at one point it was said he spent over a million dollars on one painting! When his father confronted him about squandering all that wealth he had him (the father) escorted out of the building and told not to come back! Last I read about it the father has the son and the company sued but most likely that will take years to settle, whatever the outcome it is quite apparent the company has undergone some changes and have gotten away from some of the things that made them what they are (or was).

What a goof (which is being nice on my part). I wonder if things will change.



On the bright side:
Labor Day Super Sale (August 19 to September 5th) and Parking Lot Sale (August 26 to 28)

I ended up going to their parking lot sale today. I picked up on of the red US General tool carts. I must say that for $159 it's a great deal and should be a great addition to my shop.

I was looking for something smallish to keep next to the lift instead of pushing my cabinet over every time I'm underneath the car. I must say this will be a perfect fit for just that and you can't beat the price!! Plus it will give me another reason to buy more tools!!!

Another good deal I found there was the electric chain saw chain sharpener. For the $25 I spent, it was a steal.
