    Default What are the chances of selling a used stainless impeller?

    I'm thinking about trying a stainless A impeller in my boat. If it doesn't work the way I want then I'd just sell it. Hopefully there's a chance of selling it for a good discount.

    Do used stainless impellers sell very easily?

    Hopefully this isn't considered spam, it's just a question.

    Here is a dumb question, when you say "work", what do you mean, how could it not "work"? It is not very often that you will be able to tell the difference between a stainless "A" vs. an aluminum "A", just my .02c.

    And yes, I do believe the chances of selling a used SS "A" are pretty good...

    Work, you know..........work.

    I'm thinking stainless because I don't want nuthin' to break while I'm testing If it's only a few passes it should be OK, but, if I like it I'm gonna keep it, so stainless it has to be.

    Why don't you buy used then sell used. You may be able to break even then.

    Just a thought.

    Buy a "used" one from MPD, typically you'll get one with data behind it and he has some very good impellers, As long as you don't damage it, i.e. rocks, gravel sand. you'll be able to sell it no problem.

    Finding one soon was the hard part. I didn't know MPD had em, guess I shoulda figured he would.

    Thanks for the info

    Stainless Impellers in good condition retain value very well , resale is very good and demand is high Tom

    If you damage a stainless impeller what else is there to go to????????? I always thought that stainless impellers were at the very top, then bronze, then aluminum. The material doesn't effect how it runs, that is determined by the cut, and that can be changed without buying a new impeller.

    from what I understand you cant run a high horse motor with an aluminum impeler, I think the berkley chart shows max horse power for an aluminum is 500, I have an aluminum with 650 horse and I,m worried every time I get in it real hard, if I,m wrong please correct me

    I know Im pushing the envelope with my aluminum b/c impeller

    I dont see how you could go wrong with a new stainless. Just start big and cut down till you get it to run where you want it.

    The nice part about a stainless impeller is that it is easier to repair & you can run higher HP without ripping it apart.
