The Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift w/o Overhead Beams

The Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift without Overhead Beams – the ultimate solution for heavy-duty boat lifting designed and engineered by BH-USA with professionals and marinas in mind. This complete lift system is built to handle heavy use and ensure long-lasting performance.

One of the standout features of the Max Lift is its twin high-efficient belt-less drives, powered by heavy-duty 1 1/2 HP stainless steel IP sealed motors. These motors require no maintenance, providing a hassle-free experience. The innovative Max drive systems guarantee a straight and strong installation, while the drive pipe comes with pre-greased sealed ball bearing sleeves for optimal performance. The bearings and cable are protected by a sturdy steel enclosure, ensuring durability even in challenging weather conditions. In fact, this lift has been tested and proven to handle up to 5,000 pounds of deadweight with ease.

For added convenience and longevity, the Max Lift offers an optional bottom plate that helps keep insects and bird nests out, protecting the lifting cables and giving the lift a clean, finished look. The lift points are drilled at a 10 ft. distance, providing optimal stability. The Max utilizes a robust 7 x 19 stainless steel aircraft cable, which is compounded using 4-inch ball bearing blocks for smooth and reliable operation.

Designed to withstand heavy use and abuse, the Max Lift minimizes maintenance issues, allowing you to focus on what matters most. It comes complete with all the necessary hardware, pre-drilled drive pipes, and pre-wired motors, making installation quick and simple. Each unit is individually crated and ready to ship, ensuring a hassle-free delivery process.

With a boat lift capacity of 12,000 lbs., the Max Lift is capable of handling even the heaviest boats. The drive pipe dimensions are 14 ft. x 2 3/8 in. OD (2 in. ID) and are finished with galvanized coating for enhanced durability. The pipe supports feature sealed ball bearings and cable winders, and they fit a 4 in. W flange beam.

Safety and reliability are paramount, which is why the Max Lift is equipped with double worm gear-type drives with a high-efficiency 40:90 ratio. The 1 1/2 HP stainless steel motors are C-face type and powered by 240 volts. The lift speed is an impressive 2 ft. per minute, allowing for efficient boat lifting operations. The included drum switches feature momentary switches (spring-loaded) and are GFCI protected.

Please note that when selecting the cradle option, the Max Lift comes complete with a chock angle for two bunks, guidepost stanchions, and guideposts. All necessary hardware is included, except for the wood bunks. Cable and block savers are also included to prevent the cable and block from going into the water.

The Max Lift ships in one shrink-wrapped 15 ft. wood crate for secure transportation. Please ensure that you have suitable arrangements in place to receive the delivery, preferably at a business location, and have the necessary equipment such as a fork truck for unloading. The freight company can be contacted to arrange delivery and discuss available options.

With its impressive 12,000 lb. lifting capacity, heavy-duty construction, virtually maintenance-free operation, and suitability for high-volume docking areas like marinas, the BH-USA Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift without Overhead Beams is the ideal choice for professionals seeking a reliable and durable boat lifting solution. Engineered by BH-USA, this lift is ready to be installed upon arrival, providing peace of mind and efficient boat lifting operations.

When choosing the cradle option, the cradle comes complete with a chock angle for two bunks, guidepost stanchions, and guideposts. All hardware is included, and the wood bunks are not included. Cable and block savers are included with the cradle to keep cable and block from going into the water. By using cradles instead of slings the overall rating of the lift becomes 12,000 lbs.

The BH-USA Max lifts ship complete in one shrink-wrapped 15 ft. wood crate. The Lift is shipped via a freight truck and will not be able to be unloaded without a fork truck.

It is the purchaser’s responsibility to arrange a suitable delivery location, preferably a business, and have adequate ability to unload the lift from the truck. It is not the trucking companies or BH-USA’s responsibility to unload the truck.

The freight company will contact you if requested to arrange for delivery and delivery options.
