    Powered boat loader

    Where is the best automatic boat loader for the price? I am pulling a travel trailer so I am thinking rear loader. I drive a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD with a 6 liter gas engine and a 6'6" box extended cab.

    You could also try Glen Grunert at http://www.loadit.com/products.html Had one of his center motor loaders for 10 years and it's quiet compared to the one with the motor on the side. I only had one motor fail due to water but he replaced it free. He is in Surrey and about 4 blocks from me. I also upgraded the wiring so I could load both my boat and the trailer at the same time. It does struggle with it and I had to help it but it's do-able. Purpose was so I could take off to other lakes and come back to the camp site.

    Re: Powered boat loader

    Does anyone have any current info on these two companies.
    Which company has the better boat loader?
    The Loadit boat loaders look like they are built with a more lightweight design, are they as strong and durable as the 4 boys boat loaders?

    I would lean towards the Load-It. The service from 4 boys is not good, they don't stand behind their product.
    Glen @ Load-It is great to deal with.
