I just purchased this hoist for my hardtop the other day. I opened the package just to get directions out. Everything else is is still brand new in package. I purchased this based on all of the great reviews from this site and others and it is a quality product but it just is not going to work for my garage and situation. I am only trying to recoup some cost since this is new and am asking around $140.00 for it. I paid just over $160.00. I will pay to ship. Should be a great deal for someone as many people are using them and love them.
