The Sidewinder boat lift motor is a chain driven direct drive power unit that replaces the wheel on your boat lift and makes cranking up your lift much easier. The unit attaches directly to the winch, allowing you to raise and lower your boat lift or hoist with the flip of a switch.

A Direct Drive Boat Lift Motor, with Remote allows you to “walk away” from the work of raising your boat. The Remote Control Direct Drive Boat Lift Motor is available in a 110 volt and 12 volt models. It works on boat lifts up to 7,000 lbs and it’s quick to install and operates 30% faster than the Lift Mate Wheel Drive Boat Lift Motor. A toggle switch unit is optional.

This Sidewinder was first designed for the Shore Master lifts and now fits many others. Each mounting hardware kit is included in the price of the motor and has been designed specifically for a given lift brand.
