I don't have an electric motor, and my motor lift system was originally winch powered, not line and pulley. But, the experience with the system I have suggests that there is no inherent reason that it should be too stiff to work with a lighter motor.
I'd say the path of least resistance would be to figure out why the existing system doesn't operate more smoothly, and address those issues. Creating some new raising/lowering mechanism would be a big project.
