Schedule Your End of Summer Lift Maintenance

Your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks saw a lot of action over the past few months. From lowering down for a day out on the water to protecting your boat from the rough waters all weekend, your lift does a lot to protect your boat. As the summer nears an end, now's the perfect time to have your boat lift maintenance performed at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we not only specialize in creating the best boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we also pride ourselves on offering exceptional repairs and maintenance. Check out the items we look over as we perform your lift maintenance.


Visually Inspect Lift

A visible issue may go overlooked but our technicians are trained to spot potential problems that may seem like something normal. We can visually inspect your lift to ensure everything looks good and will be ready to protect your boat during the off-season.

Check Moving Parts

The moving parts get worn out over time and now's the perfect time to ensure they are working well. We can help lubricate the moving pieces to help prevent further strain on the joints of your lift. This can also help keep plastic or rubber pieces of your lift from drying out and cracking.

Tighten Fittings

Fittings can wiggle lose over time. With the waves and constant up and down of the busy summer on the lake, nuts and bolts may move around a bit. We take this opportunity to tighten all the fittings and joints down to offer a stable lift for your boat this winter.


Spot Potential Issues

If something may be an issue in the near future, we can catch it early on. A timely repair can be done and have your boat back up and protected in no time. Have confidence in your lift as we move into the off-season when you may not be keeping as close of an eye on your lift as you maybe would during the summer months.

Preventative maintenance on your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks can help catch a problem before it causes your lift to fail. There's nothing worse than finding your lift has failed or broke during the off-season. Keep your boat protected all fall and winter when you have a lift check performed by Summerset Boat Lifts! Contact the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks to schedule your fall maintenance check today. We look forward to helping you protect your boat this off-season!

Boat Lift Preventative Maintenance Tips

Your boat lift gets a lot of use this time of year and it's important it is working like it should since you reply on it to protect your boat. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to help point out some maintenance tips to help keep your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift functioning properly. Check out some of the easy things you can check on your lift and the benefits of doing regular maintenance checks below.


Preventative Maintenance Checks:

Visually inspect any cables and or hoses regularly for any broken strands, punctures, etc. Also, check over the motor and bearings for any damage or part wear. Lastly, look over all working or moving parts for signs of excessive wear.

Try to grease the gears at least 3 times a year.  You can grease them more frequently if the lift is used regularly -- grease after every 15-20 uses.  With new installations, its recommended to grease the unit after the first 5-10 uses.

Whenever possible, raise your lift out of the water and rinse it.  Leaving it submerged for prolonged periods of time accelerates deterioration and keeping it cleaned off will keep it looking and functioning like new!

Spray all motor parts with a corrosion preventative lubricant at least twice a year.

We recommend you operate your lift occasionally during the off-season or extended periods of no boating activity to keep the motor contacts and brushes clean and everything evenly lubricated.

Due to normal wear, the drive belt can become loose over time and it's best to re-tighten it regularly.


Benefits of Maintaining Your Lift:

Extend the life of your lift.
Protect your investment that helps keep your boat or PWC out of the water and safe all year long. Regular maintenance can help increase the longevity of your boat lift. Get the most out of your lift and ensure it is well maintained and working properly.

Prevent lift failure. 
Regular maintenance can help make sure your lift is working like it should. With a little attention throughout the year, your lift joints and other weaker places are inspected. Any moving points are also lubricated to help reduce the friction that may cause a break over time.

Protect your boat. 
Your boat is a major investment and your lift works hard day in and day out to protect it. Keep your lift maintained to ensure it can do its job to keep your boat up out of the water and make it easy to board and de-board when you're ready to enjoy it during the boating season!

Now that you know some quick maintenance tips and the reasons you should pay extra attention to your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to keep your lift working properly. If you'd like help with your boat lift maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks, we're your team. Contact Summerset Boat Lifts today and we'll be on your dock before you know it checking out your lift and ensuring it is working like it should.
