HYDRAULIC CABLE LIFTING PRINCIPLES FOR MARINE ENVIRONMENTS
Hydraulic Boat Lift Priority One: Smart Design!
With the simple push of a button the Unique Tandem Hydraulic System delivers equal volume to both cylinders, resulting in synchronized lifting that automatically keeps the lift platform level. Eliminating the need for dual motors or manual adjustment.
In comparison to traditional piling mount hoists that use cable winders that over short periods of time cause cable fraying and break the ShoreStation hydraulic system utilizes hydraulic cylinders to pull cables over large diameter self lubricating pulleys. The use of the hydraulic cylinders rather than cable winders eliminates the possibility of cable overwind or unspooling. This allows ShoreStation to offer a industry leading 15-year cable warranty.
Cables pulled not wound
Cables wound around pole or winch drum
Does Speed Matter? If so, the Shore Station boat house lift provides an 8'' lifting height in less than one minute. If you only need to raise your boat a few feet, it is up in 20 seconds. This is 4 to 5 times faster than conventional "gear plate" systems, which is very convenient when loading and lifting in windy weather or rough water conditions.
FlexPower® is a unique power system that provides maximum power to the lift without costly electrical installations or modifications. The owner can use an existing 120V, 50 or 60 Hz, A/C circuit with the use of a battery tender to supply the system, or opt for the 20W, 24V DC solar panel. The FlexPower® system has its own list of advantages, with the use of a solar system the battery is constantly taking a charge during hours of sunlight. This provides the lift with the ability of 10-13 uses in one day.
The system’s speed is the result of the battery’s ability to deliver large bursts of power to the power unit without creating a large demand on the power supply. Traditional A/C systems simply cannot reliably produce this speed without large, expensive A/C circuits.
The stainless steel chain extension creates the adjustment for the platform distance. The distance from the lift tubes to the platform will vary in every boat and boat lift installation. The chains provide 4’ of adjustment for this variation and can be ordered in longer lengths if needed.
