Advantages of the PropSmith are:
All work is done from aft of the hub, so is not affected by diameter, blade overlap, number of blades, or by lack of space between strut and propeller
The only tool that is both a prop “pusher” as well as a prop puller, with the substantial force that is developed pressing the hub directly in line with the shaft, either onto or off the taper
Never a risk of damage from slipping chains or clamps of old-fashioned pullers, or a badly-aimed hammer.
The only prop tool that is compact enough for easy onboard stowage; small and simple enough to make underwater changes easy – divers love it!
Standard PropSmiths come with right hand SAE threads to mate to standard shaft end threads; metric, left hand or other special threads are available on special order; the required puller holes in the aft side of the hub are now standardized with major prop manufacturers, such as Michigan, HyTorq, Acme, Teignbridge, ZF, Veem, Hung Shen.
Used and recommended by many quality boat builders, including Viking, Hatteras, Cabo, Delta, Tiara, Ocean, Albemarle, Post, Rampage, SeaRay, Sculley, Burger, Spencer, Lazzara.
