Harbor Freight products are garbage.
Some are; particular the motorized stuff. The engine crane is just fine. There's few moving parts to go bad, and it's built extremely ruggedly in my opinion.

But if you don't like the Harbor Freight engine crane there are plenty of others you can buy online.

I am not affiliated with this company but..
Ive been trying to convince myself on a TLP for about a year now and cant just pull the trigger on that price.

I stumbled upon this on Instagram.
Its called Poptopp. (search poptoppusa on IG or same name for the website) I was intrigued by it and I looked into it a little bit.

So I was curious if anyone else has seen this yet?

It looks promising. It comes in cheaper with a promo code knocking off $200
I like the way it works and looks much simpler in design and function.

Thoughts?

Derek: take a look at this post. I wonder if its the precursor to what you cite.

And that was probably the 2 ton crane, correct? You only need the 1 ton crane for the Freedom Jack. As it, it's way overkill. : - )
1 ton crane only but I had to buy a larger socket for my ratchet. Thus the higher price, lol.

That socket wasn't Freedom Jack relevant was it? I needed only basic tools to assemble the engine crane and the Freedom Jack.

No it was for the shop crane. It has to be put together and I didn’t have the extra large socket for some of its bolts. The freedom jack was easy to put together but the instructions kind of suck.

I don't recall that big bolts on the engine crane and I probably torqued them with an adjustable wrench....whatever....got mine for about $100 from Harbor Freight....because I joined HF at the time and got a coupon that paid for membership plus $ off crane....
