BH-30 – 3,000 lb. Standard Flat Plate Boat Lift Hoist

The BH-30 – 3,000 lb. Standard Flat Plate Boat Lift Hoist combines a 3/4 HP wired motor and a 4,000 lb. gear plate assembly to create a boat hoist. Features no steel-on-steel moving parts. The hoist uses bronze-on-steel gearing. A 96-tooth cast-iron worm gear on a hardened bronze worm. The hoist uses a solid aluminum extended block housing that strengthens and supports the backplate. This reduces heat build-up caused by friction and keeps the worm gear greased and aligned. It allows for a more economical and lighter weight 1/4″ backplate. The hoist includes actual true backplate bearings, innovative and easy-to-reach zerk grease fittings, enclosed worm housings, metal drive pulleys, drive belts, and extended support blocks.

BH-USA recommends using a licensed electrician to wire or rewire any electrical components.

  1. I use this to roll off the roof of an observatory, not exactly what it was designed for but it works perfectly. Have several that have been in service for years and never had a problem.
