Now at Aircraft Spruce is the PropPastie, a new style spinner cover, designed to minimize snow, ice, and water from lying on your propeller hub and bearings and freezing inside your spinner. PropPastie fits all light aircraft.
The proper way to position a propeller in the winter is to have a blade vertical on the bottom to allow water to drain, according to company officials. However, this allows water, snow and ice to sit on your propeller hub and bearings. This could have disastrous effects should any water leak into your propeller hub, officials said, noting that without PropPastie, blowing snow also could end up inside your spinner and cause a detrimental imbalance.
PropPastie is made in the USA with UV-stabilized materials. It is designed to withstand all but the most extreme temperatures. For more information: 877-477-7823 or AircraftSpruce.com and reference part number 13-10282.
