The Max-Prop Easy is a true step forward in Max-Prop design. The ease of installation and simple pitch adjustment make this model a great choice for a wide range of boats. The three blade design provides smooth and efficient power.
The Easy ships fully assembled, making installation similar to a fixed propeller, basically slide it onto the shaft, nut it in place and the propeller is ready to go.
As with all Max-Prop’s the Easy pitch is adjustable. With the Easy the pitch is adjustable in 2 degree increments, providing the ability to fine tune the loading of the engine. Moreover, pitch adjustment can be done in the water as the propeller does not need to be disassembled to change the pitch.
In forward the Max-Prop will offer 96% of the efficiency of a fixed blade propeller of the same diameter and pitch. The 4% loss in power can usually be eliminated by precisely matching the pitch of the Max-Prop to fit the boat engine combination. The three blade has a major advantage when going against heavy winds and seas, it will maintain the boat speed up to 30% better than the two blade.
The Max-Prop provides 80% more power than a comparable fixed blade propeller. The Max-Prop utilizes the same leading edge in forward as it does in reverse giving the propeller the same thrust in both directions dramatically improving control and power in reverse.
A three blade dramatically quiets down the vibrations present with a two blade propeller. As a three blade is balanced around three points as opposed to two.
Just like other Max-Prop propellers, the Easy feathers to a low drag position while sailing. Under sail the Max-Prop 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 maximizes sailing performance.
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 be done in the water as the propeller does not need to be disassembled to change the pitch.

Available for shafts 1" to 2" or metric equivalent also available for SailDrives.
