Brownell Boat Stands, Inc., manufacturer of the iconic solid steel boat stand system that revolutionized out-of-water boat storage sixty years ago, has recently introduced a new product on its way to becoming an industry standard. Brownell’s new Hydraulic Stern Drive Installation Jack (Model # SD3) simplifies stern drive removal and installation. The jack adjusts on 3 axes, making a once back-breaking and labor intensive job an easy task for one man to complete. The SD3 illustrates Brownell Boat Stands’ longstanding commitment to both quality American made reliability and product innovation to enable boatyards to operate more profitably.
Like all Brownell Boat Stands products, the SD3 is made by skilled American craftsmen using American steel. The heavy-duty steel frame is coated with rubber to prevent scratching the drive. Pneumatic wheels are another mark of quality and durability Brownell customers know they can expect.
Brownell’s SD3 is the ultimate stern drive jack. The tilt adjustments are controlled by an easy to grip handle and have a much greater range than similar tools on the market. The revolutionary cart handle adds greater safety and maneuverability when handling the stern drives. While the frame is designed to provide stability, it is light enough to be useful even to mobile mechanics. Along with Brownell’s line of boat stands and its increasing range of shop equipment, the SD3 is available through a network of the finest marine distributors to ensure quick, economical delivery.
Customers have welcomed the SD3 into their shops since its launch last fall. Peter Kavanaugh, President of Brownell Boat Stands, explains, “our customers have been looking for a better solution to handle stern drives and have immediately embraced this product. We were confident we could deliver a new stern drive installer that could exceed their expectations and truly help to simplify the stern drive installation and removal process. Of course, individual boat owners may also find the SD3 a great addition to their tool shop, but this product was designed with the bustling boat yard, repair shop, or dealership in mind.”
Brownell Boat Stands, Inc. has been the foremost manufacturer of quality boat stands since founder Fred Brownell invented the boat stand in 1954. All Brownell Boat Stands products are made with pride in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, USA, and shipped worldwide.
