Your joist is a 2 x 10? What is the board on which the hoist is mounted? What size bolts are those in the hoist and also in the board?
My nephew estimates at about 75 pounds. He can and has lifted them. You have received some very good advice.
Proceed slowly with your ears tuned! No sense getting hurt.
