Reviews

Works great, Just like the original. I got about 350 landings out of it which I feel is pretty good. The old one is still serviceable but just looks worn out. The bearing grease zerk doesnt work on either of them is my only complain.

This tailwheel works great on my Progressive Aerodyne Searey Classic. Have worn out one tail wheel but at the current price including the wheel and bearings, its a great buy for an airplane part.

I was reluctant to purchase this wheel but the quality seems much better than reviews I have read. Bearings fit well, bolt hole is concentric with the wheel etc. It is well made and performing very well so far.
