Thrustmaster Of Texas
Hydraulic Drive, Hydraulic Drives,
Propulsion units are self-contained thruster packages for
main propulsion and positioning of barges, platforms and river
craft. They are available with diesel or electric
hydraulic drives with power ratings from 35 hp (26kW) to 2000
hp (1500kW). Conversion from a simple barge or unpowered
vessel can be done in as little as a few hours to less than a
week without modifying the hull. The hydraulic drive is
especially suited for shallow, brown water applications where
debris in the water or shallow bottoms can be a problem.
The hydraulic drive provides fully proportional propeller
speed control in forward and reverse while the engine runs at
constant speed. Many options are available, including hydraulic
kick-up of the outdrive, hydraulic propeller depth adjustment,
remote control panels, choice of engines, etc.

The original WORKMASTER and THRUSTMASTER
video with some new additions keep the Thrustmaster of Texas,
Inc. units busy around the world.
Modular barges of the British Navy
use Thrustmaster OD150N with remote hand controls, sound attenuation,
and manual backup tilt pumps.
The mini-skid style (HPU and Outdrive
are separate) is available up to 2000hp (1500kW)
Lower units steer 360 degrees and
tilt up 180 degrees for transport or to clear debris from the
Hydraulic propulsion allows the
motor to be laterally mounted for a different footprint on the
Thrustmaster hydraulic outboard
propulsion units have become more sophisticated over the years
with flexible designs while staying rugged for harsh environments.
