The Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift

The Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift, the pinnacle of heavy-duty boat lifting technology designed and engineered by BH-USA with professionals and marinas in mind. This exceptional lift is meticulously crafted to deliver unparalleled performance and longevity, making it the ultimate choice for heavy use and demanding marine environments.

The foundation of the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift is its impressive 14 ft. x 6 in. aluminum overhead beams, expertly designed to rest securely on sturdy wood joists. These beams provide a stable and durable platform for lifting boats of various sizes and weights, ensuring a straight and strong installation every time.

One of the standout features of the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift is its innovative Max drive systems, boasting twin high-efficient belt-less drives powered by heavy-duty 1 1/2 HP stainless steel IP sealed motors. These powerful motors not only guarantee optimal performance but also require minimal maintenance, providing a hassle-free lifting experience. The drive pipe is pre-greased and equipped with sealed ball bearing sleeves, ensuring smooth and reliable operation.

Built to withstand the elements, the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift is weather protected with a robust steel enclosure for the bearings and cable, ensuring maximum durability and longevity. Rigorously tested, this lift has been proven to support up to an impressive 5,000 pounds of deadweight each, making it an ideal choice for heavy-duty lifting tasks.

For added convenience and protection, the optional bottom plate is available, serving as a barrier against insects and bird nests. By keeping unwanted debris at bay, the bottom plate helps prolong the life of the lifting cables, ensuring optimal functionality for years to come. Moreover, it provides a clean and finished look to the lift, enhancing its overall aesthetic appeal.

Safety and reliability are paramount with the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift. The lift points are strategically drilled for a 10 ft. distance, ensuring secure and balanced lifting. The lift utilizes a strong 7 x 19 stainless steel aircraft cable, expertly compounded with 4 in. ball bearing blocks, guaranteeing smooth and precise lifting operations.

Installation of the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift is quick and simple, as it comes complete with all the necessary hardware, pre-drilled drive pipes, and pre-wired motors. BH-USA ensures that the lift arrives at your doorstep in impeccable condition, individually crated and ready to ship today.

When opting for the cradle option, the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift transforms into a versatile solution, complete with a chock angle for two bunks, guidepost stanchions, and guideposts. All the required hardware is included, although the wood bunks are not provided. The cradle also includes cable and block savers, which effectively prevent the cable and block from entering the water, ensuring their longevity and functionality.

With a boat lift capacity of a staggering 12,000 lbs., the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift can effortlessly handle heavy loads. Its robust construction, virtually maintenance-free design, and high lifting capacity make it an ideal choice for high-volume docking situations, such as marinas. Engineered by BH-USA, a renowned name in the industry, this lift is built to perform flawlessly and is ready to be installed as soon as it arrives at your location.

Please note that the Max Overhead Boat Sling Lift is shipped in a secure 15 ft. wood crate. To facilitate its delivery, it is advisable to arrange for a suitable delivery location, preferably a business, equipped with a fork truck for unloading. The responsibility for unloading the lift rests with the purchaser, as it is not the trucking company’s or BH-USA’s responsibility.
