Mercury 50 HP Four Stroke 50ELHPT Outboard Motor

Mercury 50 HP Four Stroke 50ELHPT Outboard Motor

Mercury 50 HP 4-Stroke 50ELHPT Command Thrust 20 Inch Shaft Length Outboard Motor


The Mercury 50ELHPT Command Thrust Big Tiller FourStoke outboards compact, single-overhead-cam design and long piston stroke give the Mercury 40 - 60hp FourStroke outboards more low-end torque for excellent acceleration, even when pushing a heavy load. The high-displacement, long-stroke, four-cylinder, single-overhead cam design provides optimum power and a smooth ride with the Command Thrust models. The Mercury Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) delivers reliable turnkey starts, improved fuel efficiency, instant throttle response and protection against low-quality-fuel problems. Another great feature on the 50ELHPT Command Thrust Big Tiller FourStroke outboard is the 18-amp high-output alternator that keeps your batteries charged and fishing electronics humming.


The increased thrust on Mercury's 50ELHPT Command Thrust Big Tiller model is delivered by a gearcase with a 2.33:1 gear ratio with 44% larger gears. The desmodromic shifting on the gearcase is ultra-smooth as well. With a gearcase that sits deeper in the water, a bigger prop with 20% more blade surface, and lower gear ratio provide unmatched thrust, maneuverability, and boat lift.


Mercury's optional center-mounted "Big Tiller" tiller handle, which is compatabe with the 50ELHPT and 50ELHPT Command Thrust FourStrokes, offers some great features and optimal control. The longer tiller grip incorporates a conveniently placed power trim switch, a shift lever that is close at hand, and an optional digital troll control that adjusts engine speed as low as 700 rpm in 10-rpm increments.
