Ontario operator buys multi-use trailer

St Clair Boating Centre in Port Lambton, Ontario, recently took delivery of a new Conolift Y-40 towed hydraulic yard trailer from Kropf Industrial.

The trailer offers all the standard advantages of a Conolift trailer, including a unique open frame design and hydraulic frame lift to over 5ft (1.5m) of frame height. The trailer frame also expands hydraulically in width from 7ft to 9ft 6in (2m to 2.8m), allowing the trailer to be adjusted to safely and efficiently handle a wide variety of boats.
An onboard Honda gas engine provides power to the integrated hydraulic system. This unit is equipped with manual controls, but a wireless radio remote control system is also available. Adjustable powerboat pads and sliding front double bow pads can be adjusted to suit a wide range of hull types and vessel sizes.
The open-frame design provides drastically simplified lift and set operations, with exceptional space for placement of keel blocking and storage stands. The independent frame lift in both the rear wheels and the fifth wheel hitch allows for the trailer and boat to remain level during launch and retrieval operations on a slipway.
St Clair Boating Centre includes both a marina operation with wet slips and heated indoor storage, as well as new and used boat sales. The Conolift Y-40 will be utilised for annual launch and retrieval operations to support the storage business, as well as handling vessels that require maintenance and service. It will help the operator to maximise the use of storage capacity while also reducing operating costs and increasing safety.
