Rated 1 out of 5 by grumble Nightmare to install!!!
I bought this for my Tracker Grizzly & Mercury 4Stroke 25 HP motor. It took my son & me over 12 hours to install! Not designed for the Grizzly boat as it hits on all bolts on the braces. Bottom hole on motor is not down far enough; misses mounting block for motor so can't put bolt there.Top bolt holes need to be down at least 1/2 inch more because we almost drilled through transom brace. Directions never mentioned in-line fuse so looked for hours when the item didn't work. Finally found the blown fuse. In order to make it work on Grizzly, had to put 1/4 inch plate shim to make it come out far enough for the bolts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelemick It works!
Tested yesterday for the first time, it' s the solution for "out-of-the-hole" problems I had with my Tohatsu 25/35.
The installation is simple and easy but the instructions are not 100% precise: I followed step by step the manual and now the motor is too high and I have to redrill the transom to lower it a pair of inches so BE CAREFUL during the installtion!
Anyway a good product and very fast service by BPS, thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hickey Very nice accessory
Very nice unit! If you're a handy person, installation isn't a big deal. One word of advise, pay very close attention to make sure that you mount the unit at the proper height in relation to the top of your transom, FLUSH!!!. Other than that the unit works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disgruntledintexas PT has been a poor performer for me
I purchased this unit and had it installed about 2 years ago. It has been nothing but a headache for me. The lower bracket that holds the piston has broken 3 times. (The part is about $12 with the shipping about $16.) It takes about 2 hours and a hoist to replace it. The last time I spoke with the service parts person at CMC he accused me of runing over stuff and breaking it which is false. I feel the aluminum brackets are just too weak. I have a 25 Johnson which is smaller than what it is rated for. Good luck if you purchase a lemon like I did. I am giving up on the unit and just remounting the motor without a tilt.
