I built this last winter out of 2" x 2" sq. tubing, casters from Menards and a 1000 lbs. 110V winch I got for $12 at a swap meet. Its 4' X 2' with telescoping legs currently at the tallest position. It worked better than I would have guessed. I added a hold chain to take stress off the winch. Loaded a 383 and a 440 for the swap meet tomorrow in less than ten minutes this morning. With a three foot run the 383 and 440 went right up the ramp.

That would be convenient for me, as I have a car without an engine in one garage and a couple engines in the other garage and gravel between.
Do you think one of those 12v winches made for a 4 wheeler would work, and a lawn mower battery. That would make it completely portable.
Very possibly. I am certain that I am not the only Mopar guy who needs to transport engines over rough ground between garages. Might be a good option for someone who is younger, more technically attuned, and has financial backing to develop a product...
