How long should a marina lift last? They work in pretty tough environments: from freezing to hot temperatures, in fresh and salt water, lifting and moving heavy and uneven loads, and just the general wear and tear of heavy machinery.
Wiggins lifts are known for their durability and longevity in the field, even in the toughest environments. How about Cape Cod? Cold winters, sea water—a harsh environment for a marina lift. Our friends at Bass River Marina know this all too well—and that’s why they have been using the same Wiggins Marina Bull since 1992!
Here are two pictures from Bass River Marina—a model is 12.5K Marina Bull (a W1.6 in our current rating system). Check out that old-style logo on the back!
Bass River tells us that this Marina Bull still works every day throughout the boating season in Dennis, Massachusetts. Going strong since 1992—that’s almost longer than anyone else has been making marina forklifts!
This is another reason why Wiggins is the world leader in the dry storage boat handling equipment industry. Wiggins can custom design what you need for your marina. We design and manufacture our trucks to meet each customer’s unique environment and needs. This makes each Marina Bull particularly suited to the job it will perform, which means better performance and—as Bass River Marina knows—impressive durability.
Wiggins builds machines to order, meaning you get what you need for your application, not some generalized lift that may or may not meet your needs. If you’re in need of a marina forklift, give us a call, and we’ll show you exactly what we mean.
