If you have your own dock, it is best to have a jet ski lift to park and store your jet ski. Since jet ski lifts can be a pretty big investment, it is important to choose the right one. In today’s article, I will review the Mr. Lifter jet ski lift.
Mr. lifter jet ski lift reviews
The Mr. Lifter is a high-quality jet ski lift that is very affordable. In my opinion, it is one of the best jet ski lifts on the market.
In particular, I really like the strong weight capacity, 360 rotation, usability, and quality materials that make up the lift.
How much weight can the Mr. Lifter hold?
The newest Mr. Lifter model has a weight capacity of 1,600 pounds. Since even the heaviest jet skis don’t weigh more than 1,200 pounds, the Mr. Lifter is strong enough to hold and store any jet ski model.
One of the coolest features on the newest Mr. Lifter is that it can rotate 360 degrees. This can easily be done by grabbing one side of the jet ski and bringing it toward the dock.
This is great for many reasons. For one, it allows your jet ski to be stored on the dock instead of the water, which can help reduce wear and tear.
It also makes it easier to clean the bottom side of your jet ski. Lastly, it makes it easier to perform any maintenance on the bottom of your jet ski.
While it depends on the water level and where you installed the lift, you can typically lift the jet ski 8 to 12 inches above the dock.
Another thing I love about the Mr. Lifter is that it is very easy to operate. One person can lift or lower the jet ski all by themselves.
There are two models of the Mr. Lifter. One has an electric pulley system, while the other model is manual. Luckily, the manual lever is very easy to rotate.
Lastly, the Mr. Lifter is made from high quality, long lasting materials that will keep your lift operating for years. The steel that is used in the lift is galvanized, which adds strength and durability. This is especially important if you store your jet ski in salt water, as galvanized steel won’t deteriorate as fast as regular steel.
Where can you install the Mr. Lifter?
The Mr. Lifter can be installed to either a stationary dock, or a seawall. This means that you can’t install it on to a floating dock. This is because a floating dock doesn’t have enough support to hold the lift.
If you choose to install it on a stationary dock, I suggest you put it near one of the posts on the dock. This is because docks have the most stability and support where the posts are.
In order to install the Mr. Lifter, you will need a drill, hex wrench, socket wrench, and a crescent wrench. The user manual that comes with the lift will show you how to install it. If you have two people installing it, it shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours.
How much does the Mr. Lifter cost?
As I mentioned earlier, there are two models of the Mr. Lifter. On that has a manual hoist system, and one that has an electric hoist system.
The manual system model costs $2,667, and the electric system costs $3,513. Compared to other jet ski lifts on the market, this price is very reasonable. Of course there are some cheaper options, but nothing that really compares to this quality. I will say that the manual system might be the best value. It is really easy to raise and lower the jet ski with the manual crank, and I think its worth saving almost $900.
If you don’t want to invest in a lift, you can check out cheaper options such as roller ramps or floating jet ski docks.
