That means no scrap and more consistent, durable propellers, most of which we make right here in the USA. Our time-tested designs come in many sizes and variations so recreational boat users can find the exact piece they need and know they’ve passed our formal quality process.

The government product division at Michigan Wheel is focused on solutions. Unlike other boat owners who can pick a standard propeller to fit their needs, our government and federal project clients have unique propulsion needs. Our job is to listen to what the application is and then custom-build the piece to the application’s specifications. Whether you know the exact measurements of your propeller and simply need a reputable builder, or if you only have an idea of what you’re looking for and need our engineers to design and make the exact propeller for you, we can do it with high tolerance, speed, and fuel efficiency and maintain reduced noise and vibration. All of our custom products feature the durability that Michigan Wheel has been delivering for over 100 years.
