Anyone own/use one of these? The AC one or DC one?

I have a friend that has one on a Shore Master lift. Not sure if it's the lift or the motor but it's rather slow, it does work well though. It has a key that you use to lower and raise the lift with that's a bit of a pain. I have the ShoreStation motor which by no means is the end all to lift motors but I do like it better than this device. What I like about it is that you can lower and raise the boat with the motor disengaged. It also is quicker.

I have one made by Extreme Max Marine (http://www.extrememax.com/catalogs/marine/boat-lift-boss-sys/12v-boat-lift-boss.php). I have the remote control 12v unit and works very well. Lifts my 98 Prostar no problem, but then again, speed depends on you lift winch ratio.

YES! I have the 120v with keyless remote. Love it! It is mounted to my shorestation and works in 60 sec or less. (I am using a 4K lbs lift). Low profile and easy to install under 20 minutes for the unit. Running the electrical was an hour, but will not have to do that again. Has a nice LED light too, for late night cleaning out the boat.

I have the 120v version with Push Button Pendant. Had it for 3 years, the unit works great with no problems. They did not have the remote control option at the time of my purchase so I bought mine with the pendant. Pendant or remote is a must have option. The only other option that I would like to have is a rain cover. Unfortunately it is not available.

I agree a rain cover would be nice. Might sew one up for this season.

The Extreme Max electric lift motor comes with a rain cover.

For now I am using a small Webber grill cover. It survived 3 Michigan winters.

Anyone have nameplate info off the motor? I can buy a washdown duty motor like this refurbished locally....this would save me having to calculate a size

Sorry, my drive is in the shed at the lake house. I seem to remember this unit to be smooth and no motor data anywhere. I will check next time I am up there.
