Kobelt Introduces Single Lever Pneumatic Propulsion Control Head

Kobelt has introduced another marine control head to their line of die-cast brass propulsion controls.

The Model 2545, pneumatic, propulsion control head is fitted with twin levers for a twinengined vessel. Each lever controls both clutch and throttle on one engine. Also available is a Model 2544 for single engine use.

These controls are designed for use in any 30-250-foot vessel which has a fixed-pitch wheel unit. The controls can also be adapted to any existing type of clutch.

Made of silicon brass for greater corrosion resistance, the controls have stainless-steel hardware and chrome-plated, solid-brass dome covers and handles. Solid, polished brass or black, nyloncoated, anti-glare domes and handles can also be supplied.

Standard on these controls are a neutral detent, neutral switch and firmer, positive action which is neither stiff nor jerky.

Although noncorrosive brass is usually more expensive than aluminum or zinc products, Kobelt's unique die-casting process makes these controls marketable at very competitive prices. Controls carry a five-year parts and labor warranty on all metal parts, with a two-year parts and labor warranty on the synthetic parts.
