Craftlander Vertical series lifts are constructed of special T-6 6061 aluminum extrusions and load tested from 130% to 200% its rated capacity. Much of the hoists construction utilizes bolts rather than welds to allow for easy transportation and on site assembly. The hoists high vertical lift design keeps your boat far out of waves reach. Informed consumers prefer the vertical type design due to the increased lift capacity and safer frame design.

Craftlander PWC series lifts are constructed the same as the vertical series and are available in 3 models, two economical scissor type and one vertical lift.1. All hoists have fully adjustable legs with pivoting base pads for level installation.
2. Stainless cables and corrosion resistant fasteners.

They are sized and geared accordingly to the lifts weight capacity and still easy to turn on all hoist sizes. The winch wheel is larger than most, a full 48” in diameter allowing for easy use.  Unlike other lower cost winch systems, Craftlander incorporates a winch cable guide to evenly distribute cable across the drum which prevents cable climbing and bunching.
