Mercury Marine launches new revolutionary Mercury propellers Flo-Torq SSR hub kit to substantially improve NVH performance for outboards from 40 HP to 225 HP

Belgium, Verviers, (September 8th, 2020) - Brunswick Marine in EMEA is excited to announce that the Mercury Propellers’ all-new Flo-Torq SSR Hub Kit product is officially available for sale into the Mercury dealer network.

The SSR hub kit is a world class hub kit solution that is created to specifically reduce and virtually eliminate prop-rattle and shifting noise while providing maximum durability for smaller and mid-range horsepower outboards. The Flo-Torq SSR utilizes Mercury’s proven Soft-Shift Rubber technology in a quiet hub kit that provides an NVH upgrade for Flo-Torq II hub applications where the maximum reduction of noise, vibration, and harshness is desired. It also Replaces Flo-Torq III and IV to simplify Mercury’s hub kit offering while providing an increase in performance at a reduced cost without sacrificing durability. The SSR technology provides 22-23% peak noise improvement at shifting events, both neutral-forward and neutral-reverse, virtually eliminating shift clunk.

As many boaters have been graciously offered quieter and quieter Mercury boat engines, it is imperative that Mercury Propellers offers products to also minimize noise, vibration, and harshness.  The work put into this product is another proof of the commitment of Mercury to improve the NVH for its customers. The Flo-Torq SSR is the perfect complement to Mercury outboards from 40HP up to 225HP with a 1” propeller shaft in general purpose, non-surface piercing applications.

The SSR Hub Kit is in addition to two other SSR products already available today:  The SSR HD and the SSR Solid.  The all-new SSR (non-HD, non-Solid) completes the SSR portfolio with its target being more general-purpose applications where noise reduction is the most important.
