Hydraulic lifts are the next step in the evolution of boat lifts.
They use a motor that drives a pump that pushes hydraulic fluid into rams that lower and raise the lift. The benefit of a system like this is that there is less wear-n-tear on the motor because the pump/fluid does most of the work. That does not mean hydraulic lifts don’t have issues . The main issue for hydraulic lifts, is the hydraulic ram(s) will have to be changed every 10 to 15 yrs., depending on your maintenance schedule, but not nearly as often as you would a cable on a vertical lift. They generally can vertically lift between 44″ and 77″ and can accommodate weights between 1700-24,000 lbs
Due to the ease of use and simplicity of the the hydraulic lift there in great standing with female boaters and kids alike. In most cases its push button convenience that lower and raises the lift, that’s it! Another advantage of a hydraulic lift is the quite and speed in which the lift operates. Due to the simplistic nature of the lift it has a real clean look to it, so when the boat is in the up position it looks like its on a pedestal, so one has a unimpeded view of the lake or shoreline.
RGC Hydraulic Lifts are available in 1750 lb. to 9000 lb. capacities and either 48 in. or 60 in. lifting heights. HLs are ideal for waterfront properties with restrictive building ordinances and to secure your boat when not in use. Built of marine grade aluminum extrusions with stainless steel hardware, these lifts are virtually maintenance free.

The ultimate for speed, convenience and lifting capacity
Hewitt hydraulic lifts offer the push-button convenience and remote control operation of our standard cantilever hydraulic models, plus faster cycle times and higher capacities. This series includes a larger selection of models with capacities ranging from 4400 lbs on standard models to a massive 18,100 lbs on high capacity models. All lifts have corrosion-resistant all-aluminum frames and include a locking water-resistant chest for housing the hydraulic pump and control system. With optional bracing and leg kits, these lifts can be used in water up to 10’ deep.
All sizes are available in 220V AC and 12V or 24V DC battery powered models. (Battery(s) not included). A wide range of optional equipment is also available, including solar cell battery chargers, lighting kits, pump box stand, canopies and more.
Speed and Load Optimized Hydraulics
Hewitt hydraulic lifts are engineered to raise their maximum rated loads through the full arc of travel without hesitation. Hydraulics are optimized to provide the fastest operating speed in the industry without increasing pressure and overstressing the pump. If you compare specifications, be sure to get the whole story. Some makers advertise faster speeds that do not represent the entire lifting cycle. Most Hewitt lifts deliver up to 55” of travel in less than 40 seconds.
The mainframes of Models 4400 through 10,100 are built with structural aluminum tubing. Model 4400 uses 3” x 6” rectangular tubing; all others 3-3/4” x 7-1/2” tubing. The heavyweight class is constructed from double-thick 3-3/4” x 7-1/2” tubing. Lift heights for all models is 77-1/2” with the exception of Model 4400 which is available in 54” and 76” lift heights.
|Reinforced Carpeted Tilting Bunks
Full-length carpeted bunks on reinforced 3” x 3” square aluminum tubing are standard on 4400 – 10,100 lb models.
Aluminum bunks with full-length rubber are standard on 12,100 and 18,100 lb models. Optional on lower capacity models.
|Welded “V” Plates
Cantilever frame features heavy-duty materials and construction. Lift arms are reinforced with extra large “V” plates to prevent swaying.
|Heavy-Duty Pivots with Pin Lock
Welded pivot points incorporate 1” stainless steel pivot pins with notched heads to prevent pin rotation that can lead to premature wear.
|Hydraulic Pump, Control System and Chest
All models include a locking water-resistant chest that houses the hydraulic pump and control system. For DC models, the chest also provides storage space for batteries. Lifts can either be operated with the push-button controls within the chest or with the convenient key fob remote controls. The hydraulic system uses biodegradable hydraulic fluid that will not harm lakes or rivers. The fluid’s anti-freezing properties also simplify winter storage. A translucent fluid reservoir makes it easy to check fluid level at a glance.
|Marine Quality Hydraulic Cylinders
Aluminum cylinders with solid stainless steel shafts are standard on 4400, 6100, 8100, and 18,100 lb lifts. Commercial grade steel cylinders with triple-chrome shafts are standard on 10,100 and 12,100 lb lifts. All cylinders have long-lasting seals with scrapers designed for underwater use and hoses with water-resistant covering. Threaded end caps, allow access to the cylinders if repairs are ever required – a cost advantage over welded cylinders.

Press a button on your wireless remote control. Seconds later your boat is in the water and ready to go. With a reliable, rugged and extremely easy to operate Pier Pleasure Hydraulic Boat Lift, you’ll never hesitate to use your boat again.
The hydraulic cylinder is enclosed in a beam assembly. This allows for easy installation on any Pier Pleasure vertical boat lift. There is no direct exposure of the cylinder to water and no exposed moving hydraulic cylinder parts. This will provide a clean appearance and safe operation of the lift. Stainless bolts, pins and brass nuts are used on all lifts and accessories to prevent corrosion and maintain a clean appearance for many years. A two-button remote operates the hydraulic system with a manual back-up switch inside the hydraulic pump box.
Available in 12 Volt (DC) and 110 Volt (AC).
