How would you install this? I guess a beam in the ceiling of your garage?

Yeah but not mounted to the ceiling itself or risk of bringing it down.

This is a good deal. I paid more for for one of these 10 years ago.

Mostly used to lift lawn mower and roto-tiller to a work table to avoid constant bending or working on the floor.

Best way would be to go into the attic and run a beam across multiple trusses, but really 440 lbs isn’t all that much. I would do the beam just for peace of mind, you could buy one 12’ 2x10, cut into thirds, laminate it and put it up there easily.

Of note, the mounting hardware doesn't support 2" square tubing, only 1.5/1.75. 2" is the sweet spot and cheaper than 1.5".

You can use 1-5/8 unistrut ( I believe Home Depot & Lowes calls it power strut). I was going to go with a trolley setup with unistrut but I think I have changed my mind and am just going to use unistrut as the trolley bolt hole layout doesn't match up easily from my limited research.
