WORKHORSE & MACHINE PITCH
The Michigan Wheel Work Horse and Machine Pitch propellers are the best known commercial boat propellers in the world, offering durability and performance for a wide range of vessels.
Machine Pitch™ (MP) is the finest and best known 3 blade propeller for all-purpose commercial use. The style and design is primarily used on vessels with top speeds less than 15 knots. MP style propeller blades incorporate a semi-elliptical shape, constant pitch, and ogival blade sections for durability and ease of repair.
9” - 60”, 61” - 100”
The Work Horse™ is the best known commercial 4 blade propeller in the world for its ability to push hard working boats. It is designed for tug boats, push boats, and applications requiring maximum thrust — where low speeds do not necessitate skewed blades. The semi-elliptical blade shape and constant pitch allows for excellent reverse thrust performance that is necessary in many work boat applications. When it is time to work, the Work Horse delivers.

Work Horse 5
The Work Horse 5 propeller is an evolution of our traditional Work Horse propeller. The increased blade number is for commercial applications with higher horsepower and thrust requirements with diameter constraints. Additionally, the Work Horse 5 will help to reduce vibration levels on vessels where non-uniform water flow or propeller tip clearance limitations exist.
