Extend the Longevity of Your Outboard Motor With a Good Outboard Motor Stand


Visitors: 515

When your outboard motor is not in the water, it's very important to have an outboard motor stands where you can store it. Not only will you get to protect your outboard motor from falling or losing balance, but you can also use the stand to transport your motor. This is because most stands come with wheels so you can conveniently move your outboard motor from one place to another. There are also many other advantages of having your own outboard motor stands.

Safe and dry

Aside from storing and transporting your outboard motor, a good-quality stand will also keep your motor in an upright position to make sure that no water trickles towards the engine. You can also use this stand every time you need to work on the motor-whether it's to repair a loose part or to put on a new coat of paint.

Burglars keep out

Outboard motor stands can also keep your motor safe and secure from potential burglars and thieves. In fact, you can protect your motor with a stand in a couple of ways: by putting your motor on it and by not putting your motor on it. If you leave the stand in the middle of your boat shed, a scheming burglar will automatically suspect that your outboard motor is at your house or someplace else.

Shop smart

When shopping for a stand, make sure to take into consideration the weight and horsepower of your boat so you can determine whether you need a standard one or a large one. Standard stands can support 135 horsepower and 485 pounds of weight, while a large one is able to sustain 900 pound large boats with 300 horsepower.

Stainless steel pneumatic tires are also an important factor to look for when choosing a stand. These tires offer smoother and easier movement when you push the stand.
