Boat Hoists are designed as the workhorse of the boat lift. The drive pipe, also known as ride pipe, attaches to the boat hoist gears. The electric hoist motor turns the gears that move the ride pipe. The ride pipe wraps and unwraps boat lift cable to raise or lower the boat lift cradle.
The flat-plate hoist has pulleys attached to the electric motor and pulleys attached to the flat-plate gear. A cogged belt installed on the pulleys turns the flat-plate gear. Flat-plate hoists have easy-to-reach grease fittings to service the flat-plate hoist.
The direct-drive hoist has internal gears that turn with an electric motor. Enclosed direct-drive hoist systems have grease built-in. A-Drive hoists are the brand name for BH-USA direct-drive hoist systems.
