You can find a complete copy of our warranty by visiting our document center.How much weight can I carry on my TNT Lift?TNT Lifts are engineered to be strong. In fact our individual boat lifts can carry more weight than we actually allow! The maximum weight is usually limited by the strength of the transom of your boat. As a general rule, the larger the boat the stronger the transom and, therefore, the larger the amount a lift can carry. As a rough guide, boat that are 33 to 39 feet can carry 500LB, boats that are 40 to 48 feet can carry 650LB, boats that are 49 to 58 feet can carry 800LB, boats that are 59 to 68 feet can carry 1000LB and boats over 69 feet can carry more. A more thorough guide is available in our document center.What exactly does Gross Weight mean?Gross Weight is the actual weight that can be put on the platform and raised out of the water.Can I perform my own repairs on a TNT Lift?While TNT Lifts offers full service for all your needs, we also recognize that many owners enjoy the experience of "doing it yourself." In light of this TNT Lifts can sell you the replacement parts you need to get the job done right. More information on replacing your hydraulic cylinders is available in our document center.I have locks on my boat, how do I adjust them?To adjust the lock, use a large pair of “Channel Lock” pliers. They will contact the round adjustment “stud” that is threaded on to the lock. The round adjustment stud will press the red rubber against the back of the mount. The stud should be adjusted 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn after the rubber locking plate is snug and cannot be removed by hand. Detailed instructions are available in our document center.What if I have questions about the hydraulics on my boat?We have a dedicated Hydraulics FAQ to help you find the answers you are looking for.NOTE: While our FAQs are here to help you find the answers you are looking for, we are always available to help you. If you need assistance, please call us at the numbers listed below.What oil do I use in my system?Recommended Hydraulic Oil: Mobil DTE24 premium quality, light-grade anti-wear hydraulic oil for use in commercial and industrial hydraulic boat lift systems, or equivalent. (ISO VG 32.SAE 10)How much oil should I put in the reservoir?Level of oil in the reservoir should be filled to within ½” -¾” of the filler/breather opening.Note: Low hydraulic fluid level can cause air to enter the system resulting in erratic operation and sponginess of the lift. Should air enter the system, fill the reservoir to its proper level with the flat cradle boat lift in the full up position and then operate the platform up and down several times. The hydraulic lift system will automatically bleed itself.What should my hydraulic pressure be set at?Pressure is factory set at 1500 p.s.i. In order to check for correct setting, system must be running and platform must be extended or retracted to its furthermost position (i.e. bottomed out). If gauge pressure is not reading set pressure, please contact TNT Lift Systems for adjustment procedures.How do I wire my hydraulic pump?A wiring diagram is available in our document center.How do I change the oil in my hydraulic lift system?Changing the oil in your lift is easy. All you need to do is remove one of the hydraulic hoses and run the lift up and down a few times to drain the system then fill with fresh oil. Remember to use MOBIL DTE_24 oil only (available through TNT or W.W. Grainger). Complete step by step details can be found in our document center.
TNT LIFT SYSTEMS has received a patent on its double acting lift. The new patented TNT lift raises the TNT platform an additional 12" to 14" above your boats existing platform or rear deck. U.S. Patent No. 7,946,243.
