Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ronck1 Great product for the home mechanic
The Black Bull 1 ton chain hoist is a must have for the home mechanic like myself for the simple reason that it works great. It was ready to use right out of the box. I used it for lifting our lawn tractor and it worked like a dream with no grunting included. It operated smoothly, quickly, and although the chain kinked(reason for 4 stars) I don't think I will ever give it up. The quality and value of the product is excellent. Buy it if you can!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillM Bettre than I expected
After searching the web for chain hoists and comparing reviews and specs, I decided to get this one. It was low cost, and would fit my needs of lifting a 200lb outboard motor in my garage. I've been using the product for about a month now and have had zero problems with it. It always works smoothly and easily. I really love this hoist. It was a great price, too. I would definitely recommend this hoist for light to medium lifting needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roger Was exactaly what I wanted.
Got the hoist quicker than I thought I would. Got it put up and its easy to use. I bolted a 2 x 6 across the rafters in my garage and placed an I-bolt in the 2 x 6 to connect the hoist to. I use it to lift the front of my lawnmower (Gravely Zero turn 54" cut). I lift the front up very, very easy to sharpen the blades and clean under the deck. Good strong equipment - highly recommend for light (under 1 ton) lifting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beekeeper Does the job, price is right
I bought this to use for lifting heavy bee hive boxes after considering the electric hoist HD sells for $110 or so. It does what I need it to do. My only complaints: the gear ratio requires a lot of pulling on the lift/lower chain to raise and lower the load, and when you're whipping that chain through some lubricating oil spatters things. I'd like it more if the vertical movement required less action.

Ordered this item to use for a push mower that needed repair. Product is easy to use and was the perfect size for the job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scottie6821 Not worth it
Purchased this to hoist up my Wave Runners off the trailer onto carts. Received and put hoist on my gantry crane. After 4 uses nuts and bolts started to fall of it the exterior housing that is cheap flimsy metal. Chain operation is not smooth on raising or lowering. I would spend the extra money vs. having issues while my 14k wave runner is in the air.
