This wheel kit is a fixed spindle set that requires the wheels to be removed in most cases when the lift has been set in the water. At Northwoods Dock, we know buying a used boat lift or dock accessory is a difficult decision.
Using wheels when installing and removing a boat lift will make the job easier in most situations.
There are now a good number of options on the market to assist with the installation and removal of a freestanding boat lift.
This system is designed to remain in place throughout the season; the wheels can be raised to allow the boat lift foot pads to rest on the lake bottom, which eliminates the need to remove the wheels as in other installation kits. The system is set up to be manually adjusted with a socket or wrench but due to the newness of this system we haven’t had enough feedback at this time to state one way or the other the effectiveness of this system in deeper water conditions.  Some customers have reported that the bolts that hold the attachment plates in place on the lower frame needed to be reversed to prevent interference with the lift cradle, and others have remarked the cost was prohibitive but overall the system has been very popular.
This system is economically priced when compared to some of the more “high end” systems on the market and has proved very popular.

This system from Craftlander™ is rated at 1000lbs per unit and designed to get your boat lift over any terrain and into and out of the water using standard 5-bolt automotive tires.  The system uses a similar attachment setup to the Craftlander™ poly wheel kit but has the added axle and hub assembly allowing any 5-bolt auto tire and rim to be used on the lift. ShoreStation™ makes a very similar product to Craftlander™ in that the Spindle and Hub assembly from ShoreStation™ is designed to use 5 bolt automotive tires but has the added feature of bearings in the hub assembly.  This system is also rated at 1000lbs per unit and the addition of the wheel bearings makes for a smoother movement of the tire.
This system is good for getting your boat lift in and out of the water but is designed mainly for open road transport of your lift.  There have been instances, when in use, of the grease caps coming off and grease oozing out of the fittings, a situation that can be quite messy, but which doesn’t diminish the effectiveness of the system as a whole. We hope you'll contact us and give us an opportunity to answer any questions you might have. Bracket kits are available to install on any additional lifts and use the same wheels.
By far, the most familiar and popular are wheel kits, so we have provided some information below about kits that we have used.  All of these kits have proven effective in getting boat lifts into and out of the water regardless of the state of the lake bottom.
The system can be easily operated with a cordless power drill, wrench, or socket and will raise and lower your boat lift with speed and safety.

This particular type of install kit is probably the one you are most familiar with, given the ease of attachment and use it has proven to be very popular among boat lift owners. This axle and hub assembly is very effective, however the use of automotive tires does add some weight and unless you have some spares on hand you may have to acquire some from your local used auto parts warehouse or junkyard.  The other thing to consider with automotive tires is that they are prone to going flat unlike the poly tires used on the other systems. If you have to transport you lift any significant distance seasonally, then this installation kit from ShoreStation™ can be combined with a tow hitch attachment to get the job done, a design feature missing from other installation kits on the market.
