Design and Construction

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 Hewitt Manufacturing. The lifts we build are low maintenance and designed to make installation and use as easy 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. 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 important differences that add up to greater value. We also give 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.

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.

Leveling legs are standard on boat lifts with capacities of 1600 lbs. and up. Legs are available as options on PWC and Narrow Pontoon Lifts. Exterior mounted legs with stainless steel quick pins allow easier adjustment and help prevent jamming.
pully assortmentPulleys & Cables
Lifts with cable systems use smooth-rolling acetal delrin plastic pulleys with high-strength galvanized steel housings and stainless steel cable – not rope. Pulleys have hardened brass bushings for optimum performance under heavy load. Our lift designs also keep pulleys and cables completely out of the water in the raised position for even longer life.
assortment of nuts, bolts and other hardwareSuperior Hardware
Every connection point is secured with the proper type of hardware. A combination of stainless steel, Durlak coated hardware and brass is used to achieve the required strength and/or corrosion resistance.
