Woodard and Company takes on Pow'rTran line


Toronto, ON-based Woodard and Company Ltd. has taken on Canadian representation for the Pow'rTran line of power steering, jack plates, power tilt and power trim and tilts for small outboard motors.

Pow'rTran introduced several new products in 2009, including smaller and faster Pow'r Steer power steering units for awkward or hard-to-reach transom or bracket-mounted outboard motors up to 20 horsepower. The new Pow'r Steer units – incorporating marine grade, submersible, high torque 12-volt motors drawing just five amps – steer outboards faster side-to-side to adjust course in rough or fast-moving water. The drive unit and motor are separate from each other for fast and easy service or replacement.

Designed for closed throttle cruising and trolling, Pow'r Steer can be operated by hand or foot with a two-button switch from up to 16 feet. A wireless remote control is also available, which allows the power steering to be operated from anywhere on board.
