Default Engine Lift for $100 at H/F

I just got my weekly coupon packet in yesterday's mail, and I see the $100 H/F coupon is back again. I bought one of these engine lifts (cherry picker) and it works fine.

BTW, I used to pick cherries for a farmer when I was in junior high, so how did the engine lift get the nickname "cherry picker"?

If you don't get the coupon in the mail or on line, then maybe just writing the coupon number on a piece of paper will work. I did that once because my printer doesn't work. One clerk refused it, but a couple days later another clerk took it just fine.
Coupon # 17962166 and it's good through 7/6/17

Tom,

That's for the one ton lift, right?

Yes, it's for the one ton, which is the one I bought. I made my own A frame, but sometimes this might come in handy, like if I need to reach inside my Olds to lift out a 425 pound Delco Light Plant.

Now, where would a person even find such a thing.

I've had one for a few years, can't beat the 99 buck coupon. I've used it for many things and it's great, like all equipment it's fine when used within its limits.

Tom, that is a one heck of a price $100.

I was there yesterday and the 1 ton, if you can use a 20% coupon was $144.00, if no coupon $179.99.

I can not find anything on your Coupon # 17962166.

I did find some stuff. I like the strip magnets. Coupons good till 3/31/17.

Looks like you are saving an old gas tank. When I changed the tank on my brother's Caravan, I saved the old tank and cut the bottom off and use the top half for cleaning parts.

Tom, that sound like a good idea. However that tank in the picture is for my '55 Ford Ranchwagon.

I did have a tank out of my Dad's Taurus that he crushed. I wish I had thought of using it for parts cleaning. I would have had to beat on it a little tho.

A guy in a previous thread used the two ton hoist to lift his Roadster body off the frame by himself. I have a coupon for the two ton hoist for $179. Good deal also.

Thanks katy, your coupon was larger and came out better than my picture.

I couldn't even buy the parts to make my own for that price.

From Wikipedia;

A cherry picker (also known as an mobile elevated work platform, MEWP, boom lift, man lift, basket crane or hydraladder) is a type of aerial work platform that consists of a platform or bucket at the end of a hydraulic lifting system. It may be mounted on a truck or van or on a self-propelled platform.

Cherry pickers were originally designed for use in orchards (though not just cherry orchards) where they are still used frequently. It lets the fruit picker pick fruit high in a tree with relative ease. Similar devices, also known as 'cherry pickers', are used to service telephone, cable television, and electrical equipment on utility poles. Christmas light displays and banners can also be affixed with a cherry picker.

Doesn't really explain where the name came from tho...

Well I went to HF with the $100 discount coupon from Katy and they did not have any, and they could not tell me when they would get more. I asked to take the floor model and they said no. I had them call some of the other stores close enough to drive to and they did not have any.

I complained to the manager and ended up with a 2 ton for $135.99. So I was happy.

Yep, you really did good. I've never seen the 2 ton go under $179 on sale.
I wanted the one ton, as it is a bit smaller and will do all I need it to.

The $99.00 coupon is for the 1 ton. Your coupon is the 2 ton. I looked in my flyer and the price is $139.99 with coupon until the end of this month. I was hoping it was $99.00 because I would have sent it to you in the mail.

Katy posted the 1 ton sale ad in #20, so you can print the ad or write the coupon number down and take that in.

I just got home from the metal yard and H/F, and H/F has a sale going on this weekend with $1, $2, $3, and $4 boxes of stuff. They have stethoscopes and test lights in the $3 box. They also have the 5 piece brass coupler set and 4 piece socket adaptors for $3.

I bought the 1-ton hoist using the $99 coupon. Ended up with a 2-ton since Ken had it and it took too much space in his shop. We traded!

BTW, both fold up for storage, you don't have to leave the long legs sticking out.

Then used the 20% off coupon and bought a 1-ton engine stand. Now I have to go pull the engine on the A when I get back into town!

Sometimes the BEST HF coupons are in magazines, like you local electric co-op, veterans magazines, gun magazines. They try to attract NEW business in those mags.

I have had a HF 1 ton now for a couple of years. Works great and the fold up feature is nice to have.

I have the one ton with fold up legs and it works really well. used it to remove my engine and put another in my A. Paid $100 for it. HF stuff is good as long as you don't use it on a daily basis. It is so cheep if it wares out you just through it away and get another one.

I checked this afternoon at our local store and they had the two floor samples but none in stock in the storage area. He said we have a truck coming in tomorrow morning.
