Hartzell Top Prop certified for C-185s

Operators of Cessna A185E and A185F Skywagon aircraft can now achieve improved takeoff performance with Hartzell’s three-blade metal props featuring longer wide chord blades.

hartzell185Hartzell’s STC provides two new Top Prop options, above its 80-inch diameter offering. At either 84-inch or 86-inch diameters, the new propellers, operated at 2,700 rpm, reduce acceleration-to-50-knots times by a measured 8.2% over stock 80-inch propellers operated at 2,850 rpm. Hartzell officials say they believe this is especially useful for float and bush operations.

List price is $9,750 for either diameter.
