    I went to my rural storage property to pick up my engine crane only to find that some thief broke in and stole it along with 2 generators, etc. I had to replace the generators right away which was bad enough of a hit. But I hate to go buy another chinese shop crane for $180, pop the engine in the olds, then have to work around it all year.

    This seems like it may be a common shop space waster for a lot of guys. Is there anyone in LA who would be interested in loaning their shop crane for a few days . . . I will pick up and deliver back at your convenience, leave a deposit, a pet or, a kid for collateral. Any takers?

    If I loaned mine out, the space it takes up would be filled by the time I got it back and I wouldn't have room for it anymore.

  8. Yea, mine is even further south, but if all else fails you can use mine.
  9. Dude I have one in the classifieds right now that I no longer need, priced right and can be picked up anytime. Its on the craigslist in Palm Springs.

    What does political affiliation have to do with swapping an engine?

    Me and my car buddies have an association . One guy buys the cherry picker,one buys the stand,one buys the tilter thingie for the eng. So forth and so on. Only catch is if you borrow one of the items you have to store it for like 6 Nothing is etched in stone but it does give each of us access to all the heavy duty stuff you don't use every day, Has worked out pretty good so far. Oh yea if you bitch about having to store the stuff the time starts all

    I dissasemble mine and ratchet strap the peices together and put it on the wall of the garage to save space and when you do this make sure you put the bolts back in there holes and nut them with a drop of locktite blue so they do not get lost . if I was 2081 miles closer ( according to google ) I would loan you mine , and you miss used the term , you want socialist , not communist , socialists share , communists they take for the supposed better good and don't give back but say they do ( kind of like congress) .

    perfect- thats why I called it communist . . . there are some things that are best not owned privately. I think all local public libraries should have one engine hoist available for loan.

    We were thinking about a visit through Austria when we visit our daughter but after that load of nonsense we are having second thoughts. Weird

    I borrowed a shop crane from a friend and when I called to return it he told me to hang on to it for a while as he did not need it...he finally picked it up 5 years later when he needed it..turns out my shop was handy/safe/cheap storage.

    I prefer renting one at the tool rental place for $35/day (plus if you rent it on Saturday morning, you keep it till Monday evening) rather than travelling two 30 mile round trips to my buddies house to borrow his.

    Even better than spending $200 at Harbor Freight and then having to store the damn thing.

    I had one for five years, finally had to loan it to someone else to get rid of it. The original owner stopped a few weeks ago and asked about it, didn't want it back just was curious. It's been fourteen years since he loaned it to me.
