“I have put the Powrtran Python to the test this summer with over a 1,000 hours on it and all I can say is bulletproof!!” -Josh W.

Named for its striking speed, the Python is the quickest kicker steering system in the industry. No longer are you stuck at the helm, with the Python, you can effortlessly guide your kicker motor from anywhere in the boat and achieve full lock-to-lock turning in 2 seconds. Saltwater tested, bowfishing approved.

Can I tilt my motor up with the Python still connected?

Yes, the Python was designed to pivot inside the steer tube so you can tilt your motor up with the system still connected.  If your motor has a kicker strapping system (like the Mercury Pro Kicker) you will want to make sure the motor is pointing straight forward before tilting up.

How does the Python integrate with the iTroll?

The Python’s relay control box has two 3-position switch outputs.  One is for your 24′ corded switch and the other is for the iTroll.  The iTroll’s steering wires are the red and green wires coming off of their control.  The connector for integration will come with the iTroll.  Install the pins onto the red and green wires and push the wires into the connector to line up with the yellow and green wires on the switch output and connect the two connectors.  If the steering controls are backwards from how you would like, swap the position of the red and green iTroll wires and reconnect.

What are the advantages of an electro-mechanical actuator over a hydraulic actuator?

Our electro-mechanical actuator uses no hydraulic fluid which means no filling, no leaks, and no extra hoses cluttering up your boat. Also, there is no possibility of hydraulic bleed down, our mechanical screw locks the unit in place.
