    Basically i dont want to buy an engine crane unless i have to and i have got this front end loader (pictured below). I would just like to know people's opinions on using this as an engine crane with chains/seatbelts.
    Thanks

    Anything is doable mate...

    You have to make up some sort of extention to go onthe front cause I doubt you'll be able to get close enough otherwise...

    And have a good operator....
    Have done it will a truck and hiyabb once... was sooo easy...

    I just use a chain block off one of the rafters in my garage..

    i'd use that for sure

    it is so much easyer to unbolt the cross member and drop the motor out the bottom or the car tho but i would still use that for sure

    I use a forklift truck. Can't see why that little loader won't work if you jig it up properly.

    I've used a plank of wood before... I think you'll be alright.

    An ATM machine machine is a little harder to get these days. Especialy when the balaclarva me mate got me was the wrong size, could barely see out the holes.
