Could I get away with using one of these: http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/online-store/products/SCA-Engine-Stand-450kg.aspx?pid=219510
Or would I have to use something with a higher load rating?

Same one as I used. They don't actually weigh that much once the accessories are off of them. I carried mine in and out of the boot of my Laser (two people of course).

I can imagine, those things are humongous!

I never realized how big they were until I looked at a friends GT, certainly makes the Windsors look small.
