Pro-Drive Automatic Full Power Reverse System

Pro-Drive Automatic Full Power Reverse System

In 2009 Pro-Drive unveils their Automatic Full Power Reverse system. The new reversing system actually turns the entire lower unit 180 degrees to allow for full power reverse and full power control of the boat while in reverse.

The key to making this system work is a special rotating collar, designed by Pro-Drive and adapted to its original vertical shaft design and angled lower unit, which allows the lower unit to turn around in seconds, with little or no effort, even in mud and heavy cover.


The reverse system forces water under the boat, creating a lifting action which can pull the boat backward in the mud and weeds. With this type of reverse, you have complete turning control that is more responsive than the turning ability of a standard outboard in reverse. The power is such that you can actually lift and plane a boat in reverse, even in shallow to no water situations. Contact: Pro Drive, (337) 229-0034; www.prodriveoutboards.com.
