Treat Your Boat Lift as You Do Your Car!

Preventative maintenance of your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift can eliminate that emergency that ruins your vacation and costs you more money than necessary.  A little maintenance goes a long way in preventing emergency calls.  When it comes to taking care of your boat lift, you should treat it the same way you would your car. Check out these boat lift maintenance tips from

Boat Lift Preventative Maintenance Tips 

  • 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. 
  • Due to normal wear, the drive belt can become loose over time.  Be sure to re-tighten it regularly. 
  • Whenever possible, raise your lift out of the water and rinse it.  Leaving it submerged for prolonged periods of time accelerates deterioration.  Rinsing will keep your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks looking and functioning like new! 
  • Visually inspect any cables and or hoses regularly for any broken strands, punctures, etc. 
  • Visually inspect the motor and bearings for any damage or part wear. 
  • Visually inspect all working parts for signs of excessive wear. 
  • Spray all motor parts with a corrosion preventative lubricant at least twice a year. 
  • Its also recommended to 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.
