Tools & Fabrication - Sam's engine hoist

I saw this at Sam's this weekend. It includes a leveler bar, chains, hooks and such... apparently, a complete package ready to go! I think it is folding too.
Does anyone have one? At $175 it seems like a goood value.
If it's the Goodyear Racing, then I have one and just pulled my 93' RX-7 rotary in preparation for an LS1. I liked it, the only thing I noticed is that before you do lifting you have to purge the air from the hydraulics and it doesn't come with hooks but rather L brackets. So I had to go to a local tool shop to buy some new chain and hooks, cost about 20$. All and all I thought it was a pretty good hoist for the price.

Goodyear Racing makes good stuff, I've got 2 pairs of their 6 ton jackstands. (from Sams of course)

is it the one that comes in three separate boxes? If it is, I've considered purchasing it. It seems like one sturdy hoist. And yeah, not bad at all for the money.
