    Loaded weight 12 RXT 260 X

    I'm trying to get ready for my first season on the water. I have been looking at ez port or lift. Would a lift with the max capacity of 1200 lbs. be big enough? Thanks in advance ....

    Dont forget to add your weight into the total weight since you will have to walk on the lift to get on the ski

    And the weight of all your gear (if any) that you keep in your ski.

    So all that being said, is a 1200 lbs. lift enough? Or do I need a bigger one.

    go for something way bigger. id say 1750lbs..

    just saying from experience as a friend of mine got his ski half full with water and put it up on his lift (pulley typed, not floating)...

    it helped him because he was able to lift it up to drain it and fix it from dock as oposed to getting it on trailer ( which might not have worked as there is not alot of water where he launches it)..

    always go bigger, who knows where the skis weights are going, might invest in something with a little extra capacity for the next generation skis...
    and for the ease of mind.
    just my 2 cents.
