Bolt On Wheels for Boat Lift


Recommended Posts

I've heard of a small place that makes bolt-on wheels for boat lifts. The guy I talked to thought it was a small shop somewhee around Park Rapids - but a search online isn't showing me anything, so it may be a private individual. The bolt-on wheels that I saw were on a swing arm/cantilever system that would allow you to keep them on the boat lift, but lower all 4 wheels down out of the way when in the lake.

Any clues on who makes these?

I have a similar system on my DAKA lift. They are located in Pine City.

I have a set of wheels in the middle of the frame and hook 2 cables to the lift and crank it up. The cantilever system pushes the wheels down and pushes the lift out of the muck. Pretty slick.

Fishlips,

respond back if you find the place and I'll look around also. I have been looking for the same thing. I have a place in Nevis.

thanks

Thanks for the replies....DAKA in Pine City got back to me and did say they offer these ($400/pair). That's an option....I'm going to keep looking for something closer to the Perham area. If you find anything, let me know.

thanks

Newmans make them for their boat lift and might fit yours. They have a plate with holes for 2 different size bars and axle that otter wheels go on. Once in the water and on the spot you either take them off or dig them down. I just take them off/on with a jack but in the fall I have to dig down alitte to get the jack under. I have them on all four corners and it sure makes it easy.

Try RMI Outdoors in Swanville. That is what I used. They have a website.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
