BH-40 – 4,000 lb. Standard Flat Plate Boat Lift Hoist
The BH-40 – 4,000 lb. Standard Flat Plate Boat Lift Hoist combines a 1 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.
