I will vouch for the Harbor Freight hydraulic table. GREAT purchase. It's
amazing the uses you find for this table...not to mention a ruined back.

Harbor Freight Hydraulic table 1000 lb capacity.
Engine sits on flat surface, no need for a rotating type stand used by other
engines. Set it on a flat workbench capable of holding 300 lbs, using the
hydraulic table to lift it there.
