This is my first mud motor kit so i wasn’t sure what to expect out of the box. But everything went together great, holes lined up and no missing parts so that was nice.
The packing or shipping on the other hand was sub par.. the shaft bolt flange itself was a little tweaked from poor packing and probably being thrown around by the shipper, i managed to straighten it out as they weren’t terribly bent. The contents in the box were wrapped up pretty good with bubble wrap and survived the trip much better, nothing bent or chipped in there but the box was beat.
Assembly was a cake walk, all the bolts and holes lined up perfectly on my motor (22hp predator). The instructions were there and kind of vague but anyone with a slight understanding of the system can put it together without them.
The powder coat looks great, they even have the bolts covered so it all matches. Had a spot flaking off at the end of the shaft and I’m guessing more will later down the road running it in the marsh.
After a few trips out I’ll edit my review if needed and include any other things i can think of someone might have questions about. I’ll post how i feel about the handling and the speeds for my boat.
