Lift Types at DockStop
Hewitt Lifts have earned a reputation for being the most durable in the industry
Overall safety and enjoyment of your lift is the focus of DockStop. The lifts we sell are low maintenance and designed to make installation and use as simple as possible. Our designs require no top bars that can get in the way when entering or exiting a boat. Above all, Hewitt Lifts are built to last in the western Canadian climate.
At first glance, different brands of lifts may look similar, but on closer inspection, you’ll find that Hewitt Lifts are built like no others. Heavier gauge plate metal, extensive use of structural extrusions, better reinforcing – these are some of the important differences that add up to greater value. Hewitt also gives extra attention to the way parts are assembled. All key joints are first made with a self-supporting “through-hole” connection and then secured with high-precision robotic welding. Hewitt offers one of the most extensive lines of lifts available, and we’re sure you’ll find a model and package of accessories ideally suited to your needs in our diverse waterways here in western Canada.
What sets our lifts apart from the competition? The little things
Winches Suited to the Task
Hewitt manual winches are specifically sized and geared to the capacity of the lift for safe operation. Unless otherwise specified, lifts under 2400 lb.capacity are equipped with a 12:1 ratio Dutton Lainson self-braking winch. 2400 lb. models and larger feature Hewitt’s high-efficiency chain drive winch with 15:1 and 20:1 gear ratios. Gears, chain and winding drum are fully enclosed.
Simple, Easy Operation
Every type of Hewitt lifting mechanism is optimized to work with minimal effort. Manual winches are equipped with large diameter hand wheels and spinner knobs for faster, easier operation. Electric winches raise and lower lifts with the flip of a switch and hydraulic systems feature the ultimate convenience of wireless remote control.
High Quality Trex Cradles
Standard boat cradles, unless otherwise specified, are made from a non-scratch plastic and wood fiber composite. This material absorbs very little water, won’t split and requires little or no maintenance.
