  • Page 4 SECURING YOUR PERSONAL WATERCRAFT (PWC) TO THE SWIM PLATFORM The optional chock system on your yacht is designed to safely support most Personal Watercraft on the centerline of the swim platform. The system is also designed to be easily removed when a PWC is not being used.
  • Page 5: Warranty Registration Card

    Your tender can weigh 1000’s of pounds if full of water. Please read and understand this owner’s manual thoroughly before operating your lift system. General Hydraulic Solutions is continually upgrading its product line and would like to inform owner-operators of safety information and upgrades to the lift system.
  • Page 6 GENERAL HYDRAULIC SOLUTIONS, INC. HYDRAULIC PLATFORM LIFT PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The GHS Hydraulic Platform Lift is an electric/hydraulic system designed to safely lower your swim platform below the water surface in order to launch various watercrafts. Your yacht builder has designed and strengthened the transom of your yacht to allow the GHS Hydraulic Platform Lift system to be attached to the transom and to operate with very specific maximum loads.
  • Page 7 OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES NORMAL PROCEDURES The GHS Hydraulic Platform Lift is designed for simple one hand operation. To safely LOWER the platform, the following procedure MUST be followed: AFTER MAKING SURE THAT THE PLATFORM AND AREA ARE CLEAR Plug the hand held control unit into the receptacle located in the area of the transom. The receptacle is located in this area so that the operator will have a clear view of the platform and the adjacent areas.
  • Page 8: Emergency Procedures

    If the Lift should ever have any operational problems please reference the Owner’s manual /Trouble- Shooting Guide to determine the cause of these problems and their solutions. General Hydraulic Solutions has all necessary parts to help get your lift back in operation.
  • Page 9 OVERALL APPEARANCE AND SYSTEM CLEANLINESS The General Hydraulic Solutions lift platform is constructed of 316L stainless steel and 464 naval brass. All parts that will be below the waterline have either been electro polished or bottom painted. This should give years of trouble free service.
  • Page 10 Recommended Hydraulic Oil For G.H.S. Hydraulic Swim Platform Lifts We highly recommend using a NZ (non-zinc), AW (Anti-Wear) hydraulic oil. This material is not expected to be harmful to aquatic organisms. The ECOTOXICITY hazard is based on an evaluation of data for the components or a similar material and provides the lubrication your pump needs. Use Mineral-Based or Synthetics with Lubricating Properties at Viscosities of 7.4 to 420 cST ( 50 to 2000 sus ) Viscosities of 7.4 to 420 cST = ISO Grade of 10, 15, 22, 32, 46, 68, 100, 150, 220, and 320.
  • Page 11 OPTIONAL RADIO REMOTE CONTROL General Hydraulic Solutions uses an optional 2-channel radio remote for wireless operation of the lift platform. The system consists of a receiver unit and two 2-button transmitter units. The remote is FCC approved. These transmitters are water resistant and good for a range of 60-100 feet.
