Hustler Props


klbowe

Question

I have tried two Hustler props on my four stroke Yamaha , Both caused the motor to vibrate and squeel at around 1500 RPM.

The first prop caused a extremely loud noise like a loose fan belt when backing off the throttle from cruising speed to neutral.

I like the design and thought behind them but I did give up and install the OEM prop.

Has anyone had any luck with these props ?

I work for a boat dealer and we have sold almost 200 of the Hustler's and have had very little problems. Have had 3 fail. The perfomance on most boats is great, especially compared to Yamaha's aluminum props. We have not ran into any noise issues except with 1 of the stainless props and that is fairly common with most stainless props. Be sure you have the correct hub kit and it is installed per the instructions.

My boat is brand new and the dealer installed the prop . I did install a second Hustler prop following by the instructions that came with the hub kit.
I do not think it is a installation problem because the dealer should know how to install the Hustler Props they have done so many.

After installing the second prop I informed the dealer that the vibration was still there. There reply was:
"we have sold hundreds of these props and had no problems". This statement from the dealer may be true but does NOTHING to solve the vibration and squeeling problem my motor has with a Hustler prop installed.

The dealer and I decided to try a Yamaha prop which worked fine.

The Hustler prop is alot more expensive than the OEM prop and as you say should perform better. I paid for the Hustler prop and to trade even up for a less expensive lower quality prop makes little sense.

That is why I am trying to find out if these props are worth a $hit.

I would consider trying a third Hustler prop.
But I am not willing to have a prop on my boat that vibrates and squeels like loose fan belt every time I back off on the throttle .

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
