I have had a PolyLift for two years and have had great luck with it. $6100 seems reasonable for a three year Poly as it would cost over $9K new.

go to sommerset they always have used lifts as does titan and trico, you might also try dock reality they just sold my neighbors 10,000 hoist (galva lift ) in the $4800 range i have also seen recently in the traders down there a 10,000 and 12,000 advertise. Stay away from the big white square tank lifts also look in the lake sun paper on Saturday. Good luck weathers supposed to be great this coming weekend will you be out on the water, were planning on going down ive got to get my yard racked but i am planning on getting on the water Sat afternoon.

You need to keep in mind that Galva lift while a good lift is quite a bit less than PolyLift to start with. I have two Galva lifts for personal watercraft and I do think there is a little difference in quality between the two. Thanks, Rick

I have purchased over the years no less than 5 galva lifts 1 6000lbs
1 8000lbs
2 12,000lbs
1 17,000lbs

and 2 pwc hoist from galva lift each time i have priced the hoist through galva lift and poly lift without much difference in price. i have chosen galva lift each time because of the experience i have had with the lifts. My lifts sit out in the ocean at the 6 1/2 mm on the main channel, while I'm not going to say i have never had a problem with my hoist it has never been a structural problem, bushings wearing out in the arms, motors, leaking valve, and hole in hose. If there is a difference in price id have to say its not justifiable. just my .02 cents.

PS i have also seen fiberglass tanks develop deterioration and start leaking so i would stay away from them.

mjpcowboy , ive been told PolyLift is definanlty a step up from others. water can get pretty rough around my dock so i need something that wont fall apart.

Later,
I agree with your comments however the material Poly uses for their bunks does cost a great deal more than treated wood with carpet. It is also the only lift that has a valid warranty even if left in the down position.
I dont think the above is worth a big difference however I do feel it is worth something additional.
Fiberglass tanks have a greater resale than galva tanks. While they may have some problems most dealers will tell you to go with the glass tanks every time.
You will not go wrong with either PolyLift or Galva Lift but that is not the case for every Mfg. as some are junk.
Just my $.02

The big difference between galva and polylift is the structural steel thickness. Galvas can bend or break if you're in rough water. Polylift is way beefier.
