The 10 in. Aluminum Die-Cast Hoist Pulley is made from an aluminum die-casting process. Over 15 years of use on BH-USA Flat Plate hoists. They are much stronger in marine environments. They will not swell or bend. The belt-gripping technology on the inside of the pulley prevents belt slippage. Compatible with any known flat-plate hoist. Resistant to warping. Designed to fit drive belts better. The bore is 3/4 inches. Accepts belts up to 1/2 inch.
The AX-34 is a 34-inch drive belt that is compatible with all flat-plate boat hoists from BH-USA. This belt is the perfect length to fit around a 10-inch hoist pulley and to be able to attach it to a 2-inch motor pulley. As the motor’s driveshaft turns, the pulleys turn the belt in order to complete the movement of the hoist.
Gear plates from the Deluxe Series feature cast iron 96 tooth worm gear assemblies and extended block bronze worm assemblies. For the Deluxe series, we use motors up to 1 horsepower.
Never use the same material for both worm gears. The use of steel-on-steel or bronze-on-bronze is not recommended for flat-plate hoists.
