Reversible Propeller for Piston Engines and Propeller Turbines (Reverse System -M)

Our reversible propellers for piston engines and propeller turbines are hydraulically controlled constant speed propellers with the patented MT-Propeller reverse dual piston system and our P-900 governor series installed. (Reverse System -M = Muehlbauer).

They are preferred for a decreased landing distance of land planes or for a better maneuverability of seaplanes.

They can be built with any number of blades like our conventional hydraulic constant speed propeller and can optionally be equipped with electric or alcohol de-ice boots.

The single piece hub is made from forged or solid aerospace aluminum alloy. It is corrosion protected and the hub's outside can be additionally painted for sea applications.

Presently most of our blades are built in natural composite design.

An aluminum blade ferrule is attached to the blade root by using special design patented lag screws.

The spinner dome is a single piece part made from fiber reinforced composite (Kevlar®).
It is extremely crack resistant as well as very light weighted and are also available with chrome finish.
