    Well that certainly covers the range of products. Thoughts since you are posting here I will make some assumptions: you are a one man band, you shop is less than 100o FtSq,
    You are not a multi-millionaire.
    So what to lift up, lathe chucks, work pieces, maybe a piece of a machine, but not a machine.
    While it is nice to think of having a machine that can lift 2 tons, like that Black Hawk model, or like that first one pictured. It is very unlikely to happen, First off an unpowered lift would take 3 people to roll with that much weight hanging off it. This I know for experience, as I have used my 2ton to move 1 ton.
    A suggestion is to buy /make an invalid ;iftof about 400 lbs cap, mine has an electric lift which is perfect for a one man operation. It takes up much less space and is especially
    handy for a guy like me in a wheelchair.
    The 2 ton lift sits in the garage, unused last 2 years, the little one is used weekly.
