Hydraulic Marine Systems' Lower Drives are an Azimuth Style Hydraulic Thruster Designed to produce a tremendous amount of Thrust in a compact housing, at a Cost Effective Price. The key to their ability is speed. Contrary to a slow turning rudder propeller style propulsion system, HMS' Thrusters produce 1,000 to 1,325 rpm's under load at the propeller!
When combined with the optional Kaplan 4-blade propeller and Matched, tight fitting Stainless Steel Nozzle (shown), these drives will give you the power you need when you need it most!
