SUBJECT: raker vs. raker II

Submitted by 05ranger520 ( from NORTH CAROLINA on

whats the difference between raker and raker II. gotta replace a 26 oringinal raker. its a 05 model!

  1. pdcbass #11520 from WISCONSIN says raker 2
    I've run both type of props. the old style(omc) raker is a better lasting prop. When using the raker 2 you have to drop one size in pitch. I do have a very good 26" omc raker for sale, I also have a couple a 4 blades 25" pitch omc for sale. I can send pictures if you would like.

  2. Rocky ( from VIRGINIA says Raker VS Raker II
    Bottom line Up Front (BLUF):I would suggest dropping 2 pitch when going from Raker to Raker II....

    PDCBass is correct the OMC raker is a longer lasting prob, made of better metal, and is not as agressive in the pitch progression through the blade as the Raker II. You may end up buying 2 differnt props to cover your summer and winter needs.

    I run a 19x Triton with a 200 HO Rude and would run a 28p Winter, 26p Summer OMC Raker and turn approx 5900 RPMs. but can't purchase them any longer. With the BRP Raker II, I run a 25P Winter and a 24p summer and turn approx 5900 RPM. I only turn 56-5700 RPM with the 25p Raker II in the summer.

    Since the Ranger is a heavier boat than the Triton in comparative lengths, I stick by stepping down 2 pitches.

    Just my 2 Cents

  3. 05ranger520 ( from NORTH CAROLINA says bought a raker II 26
    im currently runnin a ranger 520 with a 225 ho rude, with an old style 26 raker. i have a hard time controlling rpms because i dont have enough prop. i can hit rev limiter at 6250, so i have to either run hot foot all the way down and trim to desired rpm or go ahead and trim it and holding hot foot back 3/4 so im guessin i done the correct thing and ordered a raker II 26, if i went with old style i was thinking i needed a 28. thanks for all ya help!
