Between the Northern Tool and Harbor Freight it came down to price. With a promo code I found (20% off) I went with the Harbor freight one and I ended up getting it to my house for less then the list price.
Should be Monday.

Just curious on who has used the gantrys with casters on them. How sturdy and solid is it with them on? Looks a lil flimsy to me.

Mine has casters and was real stable. It is moveable if you have to but we found it easier to lower the engine and put it on an engine lift.

On the sability - we had the engine in the air and I pulled the trailer & boat out from under it and accidentally snagged the leg of the hoist - all I could do was look in the rearview mirror and watch the trolley and engine slide to the end of the beam and slam into the side, scared the hell out of me but the crane didn't even seem to be bothered. Luckily it didn't hit the headers!!

Mine is the 1 ton crane from HF.

This was after my 20% discount
List price was 699. So I didn't do to bad.
Funny thing was northern tools would not match it. They kept trying to push their 110% money back guarantee on the same product. Problem was they don't have the same product.

I have a slight down pitch to my driveway so I will be truing it with some blocks of wood. It will be left in one place and the boat will move. Wheels will be used just to push it around when not in use.
