Why Thrusters need maintenance

The thrusters on your vessel need overhauling every 5-10 years to make sure everything is working correctly and to avoid problems while at sea.

Ropes and nets can accidentally damage thrusters, resulting in water ingress or oil leaks.

Any damage to the propellors can also cause internal damage to bearings, gears, or shafts.

Even without damage, over time the aggregation of water in the oil can cause corrosion on bearings and gears – and all seals inevitably age, which will affect their performance.
