Responding to customer feedback, Safe Haven Systems has redesigned its Solar Hybrid Power Box to make launching its boat lifts faster and easier, says Traci Black, marketing manager for Carolina Waterworks, the parent company of Safe Haven Systems.
"The previous power box used levers and valves that were hard to open and a switch, which together operated the airlift," says Black. "The new design has a push-button instead of levers and valves, and a handle instead of switch." The result: The system lowers and raises a boat quicker. "It took four minutes; now it takes under two," she says. A single charge delivers enough energy to raise and lower a boat up to 80 times. The product, which can also operate on 110-volt power, contains no hydraulic fluid, oil, grease or zinc, says Black. The air-assist boat lifts start at $5,200.
