  3. My engine hoist is rated at 4000 lbs? :confused:...

    My engine hoist is rated at 4000 lbs? :confused: Where exactly are you ignoring load ratings? If you go all the way to it's maximum extension it is a 1000 lbs load rating, but you get reasonably high...

    How much does the whole operation weigh? Also what would be the exterior dimensions for shipping it?

    The 35 degree angle is for unsupported structures. It can gap fill to some extent, so you can do arches and horizontal circular(ish) holes in your geometry. There is a bit to do to make it come out...
