2, 3 and 4 bladed Max-Prop Easy

Easy

The Max-Prop Easy is available from 12" to 26" diameters and are for 3/4" to 1-3/4" diameter shafts. Also available for SailDrive.

The Max-Prop Easy is a step forward in Max-Prop design. This propeller replaces the well-known Max-Prop Classic, facilitating simplicity for the customer without sacrificing performance. The Easy model’s main attributes over the Classic are: 1) ease of installation (simple bolt on to the shaft); and 2) flexibility of pitch adjustment without the need of a haul out.

All the Easy models share the following features:

  • Easy bolt on installation
  • Externally adjustable pitch
  • Outstanding reverse
  • Low drag under sail

Two Blade Easy Features:

  • Efficient forward power
  • Very low drag under sail
  • Available from 11" to 18" diameter
  • For shafts 3/4" to 1-1/2"
  • Best suited for all racing boats or smaller cruisers

Three Blade Easy Features:

  • Added forward power
  • Runs much smoother than a two blade
  • Low drag under sail (slightly more than a two blade)
  • Available from 12' to 26"
  • For shafts 3/4" to 1-3/4"
  • Best suited for 24' to 55' cruiser (medium desplacement)

Four Blade Easy Features:

  • Outstanding forward power
  • Very smooth running (no vibrations)
  • Low drag under sail
  • Available from 14" to 26"
  • For shafts 3/4" to 1-3/4"
  • Best suited for 40' to 70' cruiser (medium to heavy displacement)

Extremely Low Drag

Under sail the Max-Prop Easy will increase sailing speed by about 15%, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. When sailing with a fixed propeller, the vessel has to overcome the fixed blade drag. Installing a Max-Prop Easy maximizes sailing performance.

Adjustable Pitch

If your engine achieves either too much or too little RPM at max throttle, adjust the pitch to a higher or lower setting to attain the correct RPM. Pitch adjustment can easily be done in or out of the water. To change the pitch you just need to remove the pitch bolt and replace it with one of a different length.

Easy To Install

Arrives pre-assembled. Unique design allows for simple bolt onto the shaft installation.

Smooth Operation

A three or four blade dramatically quiets down the vibrations present with a two blade propeller. As a they are balanced around three or four points as opposed to two.

Outstanding Reverse

The Max-Prop Easy provides 80% more power in reverse than a comparable fixed blade propeller. The Easy utilizes the same leading edge in forward as it does in reverse giving the propeller the same efficiency in both directions dramatically improving control and power in reverse.
