8,000 lb. Galvanized Four Post Pile Mount Boat Lift

The 8,000 lb. Galvanized Four Post Pile Mount Boat Lift is designed to mount on the tops of four dock pilings. The lift uses a 15 ft. single cable straight-line configuration. This results in an 8,000 lb. lift capacity rating. Features all-welded design. Hot-dipped galvanized finish. Made by Coastal Series.

Bracket long bolts for pilings not included.

CRADLE WIDTH MEASUREMENT

The 6,000 lb. galvanized boat lift comes with standard 12 ft. 6 in. cradle beams. If your pilings are already installed, it is very important to get an accurate center-to-center measurement between the pilings. This measurement will determine the cradle length you will need to order. If the center-to-center measurement is 12 ft. 6 in., then you will need a cradle length of 12 ft. 6 in. If the correct length of boat cradles are not installed there can be issued with how the boat lift operates.

PILING DEPTH

The 8 in. pilings need to be installed with sufficient seabed penetration to support the weight of the boat. Pilings must be square and level to each other. The two drive-end pilings (the pipings where the boat hoists are mounted) should be 6 in. shorter than the other two pilings. Any movement of the pilings after installation will adversely affect boat lift operations and safety.

A. HOIST SECUREMENT

The BH-USA flat-plate boat hoists are secured to the top beam with 1/2 in. x 1 1/2 in. bolts (included). Mount the back of the flat-plate cover between the gear plate and the top beam first. Then align the hole in the drive pipe with the hole in the large gear sleeve. Insert the gear sleeve bolt and “snap” the front cover to the back cover.

B. BOAT HOIST CONTROL CABLE

One flat-plate boat hoist is wired with extra cable (45 ft.) so you can mount both standard drum switches side by side. Do not attempt to wire both flat-plate hoists to one drum switch. We recommend installing the GEM Remotes GR2 double motor boat lift remote. It is designed to operate 1-2 boat lift motors at the same time. It is designed for this type of boat lift.

C. TOP BEAM SECUREMENT

Secure the top beams to the pilings using lag or through bolts. Attachment bolts to piling not included.

D. CABLE INSTALLATION

All (4) boat lift cable pieces must be equal in length. When attaching the boat lift cable to the drive pipe, insert the unfinished end of the cable into the hole of the drive pipe. Feed it through the drive pipe shaft and out the end of the drive pipe. Attach the 1/4 in. cable clamp to the cable and pull the cable back through. Make sure the clamp is tight inside the drive pipe.

Be sure to install the cable to wrap around the drive pipe an initial three wraps to support the load. Do not let the 1/4 in. cable clamp support the load.

Product assembly is required. It is recommended that this unit is assembled by experienced contractors or those experienced in boat hoist assembly and installation. Improper assembly and maintenance may void factory warranties. It is important to review and examine all assembly/use instruction guides prior to operation.
