The original Hewitt lift continues to be one of our most popular models. These rugged general purpose lifts have a natural mechanical advantage that actually makes operation easier as the boat is raised higher. Cantilever lifts also have a long history of trouble-free performance. They require fewer moving parts for superior reliability and place less stress on pulleys and cables. In the lift’s fully raised position, cables carry no weight; the load is entirely supported by the frame. Corrosion resistant aluminum construction also assures low maintenance – no rust, no painting.
Standard cantilever lifts include self-adjusting cradles and keel protectors, manual winch and rubber end caps. Deluxe rubber cradles and keel protectors are available as options. Capacities range from 1200 lb to 4800 lb. Standard cradles are found on lifts ranging from 1200 lb to 1800 lb. Lifts 2400 lb and larger come standard with full-length bunks.
Wide ‘N’ Long Model
These cantilever lifts are solidly built and heavily reinforced for today’s extra wide, extra long craft. They are also an ideal lift for larger pontoon boats with interior frame dimensions up to 120”. Photo above shown with standard full-length bunks.
