Outboard:Power Tilt and Trim

Functions and Roles

Power Tilt and Trim

Power Tilt and Trim units are electro-hydraulic mechanisms driven by a motor-driven gear pump as source of providing hydraulic pressure. The angle of the outboard machine is actively changed by trim function , and an efficient running is secured. Tilt function is useful for the protection of the outboard engine. Moreover, the hull and the outboard engine are prevented being damaged by Shock absorbing function
