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 15ft 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.
