Alumavator Elevator Boat Lifts
A superbly engineered gear-driven boat lift, the IMM Quality Alumavator lift sets the industry standard for elevator boat lifts. The Alumavator elevator boat lift is chain driven at the winder shaft from a motor-driven gearbox. New for 2014, we increased the travel of the elevator boat lifts to 20 feet, installed cable rollers to keep the cable tight on the winder and in the grooves and we moved the lower roller to make the lift easier to maneuver during installation.
Chain drives are the transmission of choice for heavy machinery in industrial, farming, military and marine applications, due to shock-load ruggedness, efficiency, safety and proven dependability. Also, this positive drive system does not suffer from belt slippage seen with flat plate drives. This is because each link makes a drive contact on the sprocket, spreading the load over many teeth. Chains are simply the best drive choice for the money, given the extreme abuse of the marine boat lift application.
IMM Quality Boat Lifts takes pride in our engineering and product design expertise. We are also proud of our unique capability to thoroughly performance test each elevator boat lift before it leaves our factory. Take a look at our designs, and we are confident you will see why IMM Quality Boat Lifts are built for a lifetime.

The angle required for your application will be determined by water depth and local conditions. IMM Quality Boat Lifts manufactures three standard angles, 0°, 10° and 23°, which cover nearly all situations. The Alumavator elevator boat lift is available in seven sizes in these configurations, up to 20,000 pounds.
