852 for big single application

Postby heyjpark » Wed Jun 01, 2016 9:21 pm

Jeff, I want to build a high horsepower single. 25' long, 8500 lbs with fuel and some gear. 700 HP. Currently I have that same boat with a 600 HP engine and a 241. It works good but of course I want better. The 241 just doesn't have the RPM range that I'd like. I can't really utilize all of the HP, although I can use a lot of the torque. Is the 852 going to outperform the 241 in this application?

No the 852 will not out preform a 241 in a heavy boat application. We are currently working on a new model that should though. Watch this sponsor page for more information about the new 902 ( 9 inch 2 stage ) towards the end of the summer.

Nice. Is it in or near production? Seems like the grey pumps are not keeping up with the modern high HP engines. the 241 I have now works well, it just doesn't do anything past about 4000rpm.

Jeff what happened to the 9.5" they were supposed to be developing a few years ago?

I gotta ask why a single that big? Twin 6.2di with 852s behind them would outperform any single by a large margin. Hell twin 350s would also and probably cost close to the same.

We have sold a few test models of the 902 into Canada to see how they will work. We have gotten very good feed back from them. We have a few design changes in mind so the new design of the 902 is not in production yet. I will post something here as soon as we get start testing with it in the US. The 952 project was put on hold several years ago for lack of interest.

I'm not sure how much Scotts costs, but using rough numbers with Hamilton 213:

2 qty Hamilton 213 @ $13,000 ea= $26,000
2 qty KEM 350 @ $9,000 ea= 18000.00
Total entry level twin is $44,0000.

1 qty Hamilton 241= $20,000
1 qty Haxby BBC=$20,000
Total bad ass single = $40,000

Less maintenance, less weight, less hassle for inexperienced operators to drive, narrower bottom for running salmon river.
