Massive gear reduction and move the load slowly or huge power and low kv to move the load faster.

What is the 60kg a brief description of what your attempting, 60kg can be lifted with a remote control car motor if the gearing is like 100 to 1 there's a guy on YouTube that has exceeded that lift weight with Lego parts alone.

Which do you want?
Fast lifting or slow lifting?

Fast can be done, but you need a big motor and strong parts.
Slow needs lots of gearing to take whatever torque source you have and gear it down enough to get it to lift the weight desired.
A CD ROM motor can lift a car with enough gearing.
