The Neptune Series handles boats with care, style and class. This sleek marina lift truck is perfect for a marina or boat storage facility of any size.
The spacious cab, air ride seat and tilt steering provide maximum comfort for the operator. Intuitive electronic joystick controls and superior visibility allow for safe and effortless handling, as well as fast cycle times. The advanced rubber fork covering system securely grips boats without damage. Galvanization and three-step paint process provide maximum corrosion protection.
While focusing on robustness and comfort, we also understand that time is money. That’s why each Neptune Series is engineered to provide optimal operating and fuel efficiency. The high-performance Cummins diesel engine are powerful, yet offer reduced fuel consumption and emissions. Features such as variable pumps adjust oil flow accordingly to provide quicker lifting cycles while also reducing fuel consumption.
As with all Hoist Material Handling equipment, the Neptune Series is 100% made in the USA. More than 75% of each truck is manufactured in-house at our East Chicago, Indiana factory with the remaining components sourced from reputable U.S. companies, such as Cummins, Dana and Parker.

Hoist Material Handling’s line of BIG TRUCKS starts with a strong foundation. The modular design of the Neptune Series provides excellent serviceability without sacrificing strength or durability. The Neptune Series has been designed and tested to meet or exceed current, worldwide regulations for stability, sound levels and safety.
Anchoring the Neptune Series is the 100%-welded steel chassis, which boasts heavy steel cross supports to distributing weight evenly throughout the truck. Bolt-on components, such as fuel and hydraulic tanks, provide additional durability and optimal heat dissipation, as well as easy removal and attachment for repairs or shipping. Integrated lifting points also allow for safe handling and transport.
