YARD MACHINERY Third trailer for expanding Michigan yard M E Yacht Restoration, a major boat repair facility in Holland, Michigan, USA recently took delivery of a Conolift self-propelled 40 ton hydraulic trailer from Canadian company Kropf Industrial. The trailer offers all the standard advantages of a Conolift trailer, including unique open frame design and hydraulic frame lift to over 60in (152cm) of frame height. The frame also expands hydraulically in width from 84 to 114in (213 to 290cm), allowing the trailer to accommodate a wide variety of boats as safely as possible. Hydraulic rear wheel drive assist enables the trailer to be used for launching and retrieving vessels on the slipway. M E Yacht’s storage buildings are located across a small service road from the slipway. The trailer will thus allow the team to move vessels to and from the water without any additional equipment and, as the trailer is also fully radio remote controlled, the operator can closely monitor its proximity to obstacles while manoeuvring in tight spaces. The trailer is very economical and reliable thanks to its Caterpillar Tier 4 diesel engine and is simple to operate and maintain due to its robust construction. The design includes rear load guides, sliding front bow pads for easy adjustment and a rear pad rocker system that allows the trailer pads to easily adapt to different hull designs. The new equipment joins an existing Conolift SP100 self-propelled trailer with 100 ton capacity, as well as a Conolift highway trailer with 15 ton capacity. M E Yachts is also in the process of installing a floating dock system from Kropf Marine, which will provide 50 slips for boats up to 60ft (18m) in length – May/June 2021 53
