Source for server lift/hoist?

harbor freight has some excellent  platform lift things...
worth checking....
we like things like this as   large TV studio cameras  weigh  100 to 200  
<<and one here is  300  (tk42)>>
when we get a caucus in and want to clean it up  and make it  presentable  
for display we like to work on it  at bench  height...
(once in a while it is  good  to raise a tape  drive   up in  the air  
<< I can't believe I used to grab a 7970E out of a rack... walk it  across 
the computer room and put in another  rack by my  more....  I 
just look at it in the rack and get tired  now!!>>>

I've used an "engine hoist" around the shop to move heavy  
stuff.  It has an extendable beam and a bottle jack to raise  
it.  It folds up into a pretty small package when not in  
use.  These can often be had pretty  cheaply.
