The following videos demonstrate how easily the PropSmith operates. The videos require a high-speed (Broadband) connection to function properly. Use the play/pause buttons to start/stop the videos.
For Installation, the PropSmith seats the
prop very forcefully up onto the taper:
- Without hammers, wrench extensions, blocking of blades, risk of bent tips or scarred shafts
- Eliminates risk of prop loosening on taper, leading to vibration, keyway cracks, or shaft failure
For Removal, the PropSmith exerts the same high force,
(up to 40 tons) directly down the taper to pull the prop:
- Not affected by diameter, number or overlap of blades, or space between strut and blades.
- No contact with blades, so no risk of damage from chains, hooks, or slipping clamps.
Sizes available for all standard propeller shaft diameters from 1 ¾” to 6”. Units for metric or left handed threaded shafts available on special order. All PropSmiths come in durable plastic cases for space saving on-board stowage in engine room or tool locker.
