Calculating electric motor's weight lifting ability knowing power. What else do I need to know?

So, my company works with electric motors, and my boss wanted me to calculate how much weight could be lifted by a motor rated at 750W. I know that I can't just calculate the work done by it without any further specification of characteristics, but what I what to know is a couple of formulas that could get me there using measurable values, for example, i can measure current consumed when lifting a 10kg weight. Also, I'm open to suggestions, if you think there is an easier way to get where I want to, I am open to new ideas.
