6,000 lb. Galvanized Four Post Pile Mount Boat Lift
The 6,000 lb. Galvanized Four Post Pile Mount Boat Lift is a robust and durable solution designed to securely lift and support boats weighing up to 6,000 pounds. This boat lift is specifically designed to mount on the tops of four dock pilings, providing a stable and reliable platform for boat owners.
With its all-welded design and hot-dipped galvanized finish, this boat lift offers exceptional strength and resistance to corrosion, ensuring long-lasting performance even in harsh marine environments. The galvanized finish adds an extra layer of protection, making it suitable for saltwater applications.
The boat lift comes equipped with two 3/4 HP motors, each attached to a 13 ft. galvanized top beam. These motors are operated using maintained drum switches, providing easy control and smooth lifting operations. The motors are wired with a 16 ft. and 45 ft. control cable, allowing flexibility in installation and positioning.
For secure boat lifting, the lift includes two 4,000 lb. standard powder-coated gear plate assemblies with hoist covers. These gear plate assemblies feature a 96:1 bull gear ratio and a hardened bronze worm, ensuring reliable and efficient lifting performance. The gear plates are complemented by a 10-inch hoist pulley made of zinc die-cast, further enhancing the lifting capacity.
The boat lift also includes four guidepost stanchions, PVC pipes, and black 48-inch split bumpers. These components assist in guiding and protecting the boat during the lifting process, minimizing the risk of damage.
To ensure proper installation, a 6K fastener kit is provided, which includes the necessary galvanized fasteners for securing the top beams to the pilings. However, it’s important to note that piling mount bolts are not included, and it is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain and install them.
The cradle width of the boat lift is determined by the center-to-center measurement between the pilings. It is crucial to have an accurate measurement to ensure the proper functioning of the boat lift. The lift comes with standard 12 ft. 6 in. cradle beams, but it’s essential to install the correct length of boat cradles based on the specific measurement.
The boat lift requires proper piling installation, with 8-inch pilings that are square, level, and adequately penetrate the seabed. The drive-end pilings should be 6 inches shorter than the other two pilings. Proper installation and alignment of the pilings are vital for the safe and effective operation of the boat lift.
Please note that installation of this boat lift should be carried out by experienced contractors or professionals familiar with boat hoist assembly and installation. Improper installation and maintenance may void the manufacturer’s warranty. It is recommended to thoroughly read and understand the assembly and use instructions before operating the boat lift.
The 6,000 lb. Galvanized Four Post Pile Mount Boat Lift is a high-quality and reliable lifting solution for boat owners. Its sturdy construction, galvanized finish, and powerful motors make it capable of lifting boats weighing up to 6,000 pounds with ease. With proper installation and maintenance, this boat lift will provide years of dependable service, ensuring the safe and convenient storage of your valuable watercraft.
CRADLE WIDTH MEASUREMENT
6,000-lb galvanized boat lift is equipped with standard 12 ft 6 in cradle beams. If your pilings are already installed, it is essential to obtain a precise center-to-center measurement between the pilings. Your cradle length will be determined by this measurement. When the center-to-center measurement is 12 ft 6 in, then you will need a cradle length of 12 ft 6 in If the correct length of boat cradles is not installed, issues can arise with how the boat lift operates.
To support the weight of the boat, the 8-inch pilings must be installed with enough seabed penetration. Each piling must be square and level with the others. Drive-end pilings (where the boat hoists are installed) should be 6 inches shorter than the other two pilings. After installation, movement of the pilings will affect boat lift operation and safety.
A. HOIST SECUREMENT
BH-USA flat-plate boat hoists are attached to the top beam with 1/2 in x 1 1/2 in bolts (included). Initially, mount the back of the flat-plate cover between the gear plate and the top beam. Align the hole in the drive pipe with the hole in the large gear sleeve. Set the gear sleeve bolt in place and snap the front cover into the back cover.
B. BOAT HOIST CONTROL CABLE
One of the flat-plate boat hoists is wired with an extra cable (45 ft) so that both drum switches can be mounted side-by-side. It is not recommended to wire both flat-plate hoists to one drum switch. For double motorboat lifts, we recommend using the GEM Remotes GR2 double motor boat lift remote. One to two boat lift motors can be operated simultaneously. It was designed to operate this type of lift.
C. TOP BEAM SECUREMENT
Utilize lag or through bolts to secure the top beams to the pilings. Piling attachment bolts are not included.
D. CABLE INSTALLATION
The 10,000 lb & 12,000 lb galvanized boat lifts will come with 123 ft of boat lift cable. Unlike the 6,000 lb and 8,000 lb beams, the 10,000 lb & 12,000 lb beams have deadman brackets welded to each beam to attach your boat lift cable. Compounding blocks are included with boat cradles.
Installation is required. This unit should be assembled by experienced contractors or professionals familiar with boat hoist assembly and installation. Improper installation and maintenance may void the manufacturer’s warranty. The assembly/use instructions should be read and examined before operation.
