    The actual design should be able to handle 1000 to 1500 lbs.

    i rented an engine hoist and it failed on the first shrub i attempted to uproot. It was a burning bush that was 6 feet tall and probably several years old. It started to fold one of the legs up as i was trying to pull the shrub out. My suggestion to TwinLakes would be to weld a brace from near the top of vertical shaft down to both legs to make ur lift even stronger. Because that is what will fail first....in my opinion.
