CMC Hydraulic Power-Lift Transom Jacks

The dependable, self-contained and water proof hydraulic actuator has a maximum lifting capacity of 7853 pounds of thrust. More than any other transom jack. You will have no problem lifting even a V-6 300 hp max. motor at full throttle.

The hydraulic actuator is mounted inside the structure of the Power-Lift, yet it is fully accessible without removing the engine. There are no hoses to contain, nor will you have to contend with mounting a pump and reservoir inside your boat, as is the need with other transom jacks. The hydraulic actuator is completely self-contained with its own fluid reservoir (eliminates the need for hydraulic tank and hoses inside the boat). It contains a permanent magnet motor for more power and constant torque. The cylinder within the actuator has twice the lifting capacity than other transom jacks on the market. It contains a no-leak seal and wiper that keeps dirt and water out of the working parts. The system is made of 100% non-ferrous material which makes it impervious to saltwater and freshwater.

The patented roller design means less friction, longer wear, less maintenance, and virtually no binding problems which are common with other transom jacks. The roller assembly contains a stainless steel 3/4" pin with aluminum-bronze alloy rollers. The roller is highly impact resistant, corrosive resistant, and has a high load carrying capacity.

The PL-65 is rated for V-6 motors and smaller and gives you 5" of vertical travel with 1-1/2" of adjustment on the motor bracket and 1-1/2" of adjustment on the transom bracket, a total of 8" of possible adjustment. It also can be purchased with stainless steel motor rails, Model PL-65SS (for V-8 motors 300 HP MAX).

Very good Plate

I had this plate installed a few years ago on my Ranger R70, My dad has the same on his 02, Ranger 185VS as well. It's a solid plate, it works and is reliable. I have the 5.5" size. I love it because I can plane the boat in 2ft of water if I have my 4 blade prop on. Rough water it's easy to lower while running to improve handling. The CMC is not as fast as an Atlas but it works well while running wide open to improve top end performance. I love the fact that it makes idling in shallow water as well as while on plane as well. Overall it's a solid plate! My dad has had his on his boat since 2008, and I've had mine since 2018. I would recommend to anyone!
