Just picked up engine hoist.

Ok i just picked up this hoist,pretty good deal 125.well it has air hook up.I can use the regular hydralic,just curious about the advantages of it,and if the air can fail.also the legs are a little different,has two slide outs.I got 3 boats that will need motors pulled soon.really wondering if its a alright lift.the back wheels are a little different also.its a larin brand with 8ton pump.

Air can fail just as oil can so take the same precautions. Otherwise they work pretty good.

air/hyd cyl

i just got a new one for my hoist. love it.. havent really used it yet but it's nice to just pull the trigger and the air will pulse the hyd's to lift.. it's not just going to shoot up, it'll move just like the hand pump. take a good look at the wheels, u may want to change. i like the slide out legs in front too. mine has same and also the side wheels move out too.. if it comes to the cyl is shot then go to harbor freight and get a new one.. $85 for a 8 ton air/hyd. if your going to pull the engine while the boat is still on trailer u may have a problem.. they generally lift to around 8 ft. thats the top of boom not hook.
