Marine Travelift Hoists Now Feature Four-Wheel Drive

— L i t e r a t u r e Available Marine Travelift, Inc. recently announced that optional four-wheel drive mobility is now available on their 15-, 25- and 35-ton-capacity mobile boat hoists. The newly designed direct wheel drive eliminates drive chains and increases reliability and performance while reducing possible downtime.

The four-wheel drive feature adds extra gradeability and rough terrain mobility to the units for improved yard utilization and more versatility. Units can handle steeper yard grades than previous models which allows operators more opportunities for boat storage and repair.

Marine Travelift 15BFM, 25 BFM and 35 BFM mobile hoists also feature the "beam forward" design, forward sling adjustment behind the front beam allowing for more rigging and structure clearance. The units also have up to 9 feet of power adjustable sling placement at the closed end.

Operator convenience designs to permit handling a wide variety of pleasure and commercial sailing and power boats including fast hoisting, "plug in" gauge to permit instant inspection of each hydraulic pump function, two-speed drive and an easy access operator compartment.

The Marine Travelift hoists also have high strength box frame construction; pivot trunnion allowing side frames to pivot on uneven terrain; hydraulic motor with gear reducer; automatic brake and a mechanical, anti-two-block system built-in.
