Our Belt Reduction Drive !

A rugged belt reduction drive designed for industrial engines, including the popular Predator 13 HP to 22 HP, Honda 13-20 HP, and Briggs Vanguard 10-35 HP engines. These engines are commonly used on hovercraft and small airboats. This drive comes ready to install on your engine. Developed specifically for the harsh marine environment. It is designed for engines up to 40 horsepower which turn 3600 to 4000 RPM maximum, and is constructed primarily of aluminum and stainless steel for durability in a wet environment. The cogged belt is quiet, efficient and doesn’t slip when wet. The muffler and exhaust system on some engines may have to be re-located or modified to provide clearance for this redution drive to mount. Specify 1.4  or 1.65 to 1 reduction ratio. A reduction drive unit allows use of a larger diameter propeller, turning more slowly, for more propeller efficiency (more thrust per HP) and quieter operation.  Comes with Rotax 75mm bolt circle pattern for 5/16 inch prop mounting bolts.

Cost is $895 USD for up to 25 HP or $995 for up to 40 HP (has wider belt and pulleys, thicker plate)
plus shipping cost
