Depends on your definition. You're not going to find anything for less than a grand:

well you could always make your own.
a friend of mine had an old shed/shop that his grandfather had and there were steel I beams on the cieling. he made a rig using 2 extra I beams, alot of rubber ( to wrap them in) and 4electric overhead cranes.

mind you all this was already availible to him he just put it together.

it was a very cool looking rig and very functional. im sure if might not be availible to you but maybe might get you mind joggin about an idea of building your own Beer 4U2
