Good morning Rob, for the IO-390 we would recommend our three blade hydraulic propeller model MTV-12-B/188-59f. The weight of this prop including the spinner assembly is approximately 56 pounds. The price for this prop is $12,500 including the spinner assembly, the spinner comes completely finished and ready to bolt on your airplane.

Isnít the B.A hartzell prop also 56 lbs?

I would Stay away MT. I had an Issue with them and took a lot of time and money to get it resolved and communication with Germany is terrible. Nothing is done herein the US.

What?????? Sorry but I have to call you out on this one....

I have owned 5 aircraft w MT's. Currently own two of them a TBM850 w a 6BP and my MX2 w/ and MTV9-203C and have gotten nothing but perfect service from both Peter Marshal in Deland, FL and from Eric Greindl VP of Sales in Germany.

No, I am not sponsored by MT nor I am someones Bro in law....not even a free sticker. (try getting one)

The MT is a great Prop and prized correctly! the people are #1 and all very approachable as you will expect from a service provider.

Sorry about your bad experience! Not here...

That's the prop I have on my 7 with a 360 angle valve.

It is great for smoothness.

Light weight and the heavy engine go well together my CoG means i can load up with fuel and baggage as well as a passenger with no problems.

The bit I like best is the way it gets me off the ground, and helps with the landings as well.

I have no problems getting the cowlings on and off due to the prop. The spinner is the tight bit. Once you have got past the spinner there is plenty of room.

I'm not convinced there is any great difference in performance that can be attributed to a particular make or style of prop as a general rule.

I wouldn't have anything but a 3 blade composite VP. But everyone has their own pet loves.

Default Well, that ain't all..

I changed from a 3 blade MT to the newer (at that time) BA Hartzell 2 blade. Weight difference was ounces - not pounds. I was looking for SPEED.

Found it: the 2 blade Hartzell was 10kt faster at Reno. MT has not offered a better or newer 3 blade for me to try...

I recall that some wise fella said that the most important thing in an aeroplane was that "it should be speedy" - not photogenic.

My 150hr MT paperweight is still upstairs, waiting on the next build to finish up. I'll fly it for a while then change to the Hartzell again.

Hey Mitch, Lucky you..
I needed spinner and the crush plate for a Electric MT prop It costed $1500 and 6 weeks to be made, Is that a great price. On top of the extremely high cost, long time to make it came all full of problems that i had to align and re-drill everything. My question is why did i pay that much for something that was supposed be a perfect fit just bolt on.
I tried going thru the Florida office but got diverted to the Germany office....
I will never buy or recommend this brand to anyone.

Sorry about your bad experience. Not me on the contrary, exemplary beyond normal. How is the electric prop? Hear conflicting reports
