$225 or make offer.
New it's $660.
This is the Ultralight model.
Tractor/front prop.... not for pusher.
Rated for engines up to 100 HP.
72 inch diameter.
Light weight. Total prop 8 pounds.
We've had it on a 80 HP Rotax 912.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with this prop.
One of the best is how quick and no brainer is to adjust pitch.
No protractors, etc. Takes about 5 minutes and most of that time is removing the Phillips head screw that hold the spinner on.
So easy that if you find yourself in a short field situation and want lower pitch for shorter takeoff, it's totally practical to do that.
Or want to up the pitch a bit for an expected long cruise, easily done.

So here's the catch-- explaining why selling so cheap:
The front surfaces of about 1.5 inches of tips of the blades are scraped.
(embarrassing details of how I did that on request :oops: ).
IvoProp, based on photos I sent them says they are not willing to recondition them (which usually means IIRR they'd fill chips and reapply gelcoat.)
But they did say OK to cut 2 inches off the tips and increase the pitch two turns is safe viable fix.
Our local fiberglass repair expert swears he could reliably recoat tips for about an hour or hour and a half labor plus about $30 materials. But my co-owner preferred we get new blades.
New blades run about $190 each, so instead I've ordered a whole new prop.

Contact me for more details and photos, and any questions, if you're seriously interested.
Needless to say, although I thoroughly believe it can be safely refinished or safely used if tips cut off, it's sold as-is.

Also needless to say almost certainly legal only on experimentals.
