Aquacart Lift Slings Make Loading And Launching Easier

It’s a cold, hard reality, folks: the temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere are dropping (you know it’s bad when the Jetski Junkies are wearing thick gloves and fleeces on their rides). And for those residing in states where snow and freezing temperatures appear, it’s time to pack those skis up for the winter. Thankfully, the process isn’t too tough – especially if you’ve got all the right tools.

We spotted this sweet setup over on Aquacart’s Facebook page of loyal Aquacart customer Barry and his dockside davit in Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis, MD. Using Aquacart’s heavy duty Lift Harness/Sling and Shop Cart, pulling his Sea-Doo RXT in and out of the water is a synch. Using the same harness as major shops and dealers, the Aquacart sling is made of superior materials to ensure that your PWC will remain safe and secure whether being lifted by a winch, lift, cable or forklift.

Best of all, you don’t have to be shop to own one; all Aquacart Lift Harnesses are made with vinyl-coated steel brackets (with superior coating than on competitor models) for maximum hull protection that won’t scratch your ski, double stitching for added security and strength, UV protected ultra high strength webbing (up to 6,000-pounds), and thick double stainless steel lift rings (rated at 4500-pounds).

All of Aquacart’s products are made with the most durable of materials promising a long life of reliable usage. No matter whether you’re a professional shop, business or a dyed-in-the-wool enthusiast, Aquacart has the right equipment to keep you riding (and rolling) longer.

    What testing has been carried out on these slings? are they certified? I’ve used slings like this before, if you’re not absolutely precise with their position your jetski will slide out… It’s happened to me and I e seen it happen at two yards where ‘professionals” we’re using this style of sling.. Be careful folks!

      All you have to do is click the link to Aquacarts’ webpage. They list all of the weight testing and tensile strength measurements. And the included instructions ask that the sling be mounted equal to the engine (the heaviest part of the ski). Those who cannot follow such simple commonsense directions have little place operating such equipment.

    Valid question. All Aquacart slings have been tested and will actually handle 2x’s the weight rating in most cases. Some models even more. There are many “light duty” slings on the market which is why the watercraft manufacturers asked us to design and manufacture a high quality unit. I have seen people miss use lift harnesses as well. Just like Kevin stated, ” easy to follow instructions should be followed”.
