I have one and I'd say around 50lbs of thrust.Moves my fat self and a 1027 at a pretty good pace.

Had one some time ago on a 12' vee. Threw a wake! Seriously! Wish I had kept it.

3hp is a generic rating, more like 3/4... Takes 48 volts to get 3 hp... :mrgreen:

Correct.3HP is a model not a power rating.It confuses a lot of people.I was at first but after a few calls,I was set straight.

BTW parts are no longer available for the 3HP.I need a new armature and can not find one.I have looked for almost two years.Even tried ebay and craig's list.

Is the motor and brushes still good?What are you wanting for it?Can you post pics.These motors are not popular anymore because of their high power consumption.

Mine was a transom mount.I couldn't find the parts to repair mine, so I scrapped it a couple years ago.I needed a complete armature and brushes.Mine was run into something solid,by the PO, and drove the armature into the brushes.Parts are almost non existent for these old TMs.
