Multiple trim positions enhance performance and enable shallow-water operation. Convenience and performance you can count on. 4 amp alternator to charge a battery: exhaust relief holes and 6" prop for improved handling when reversing heavy boats;

even an added rectifier to power small external lights. A 5hp FourStroke that powers your boat. Weighing just 38 and 57 pounds, respectively, our 2.5 - 3.5hp and 4 - 6hp FourStroke outboards are easy to lift and carry.

Choose how you use your boat, select the TwoStroke and FourStroke horsepower - and our tool will show your potential fuel savings. If you're looking to upgrade or add more power, you can even choose different FourStroke and TwoStroke horsepower options! The Mercury Fuel Savings Calculator will allow you to easily calculate the possible fuel savings of a Mercury FourStroke outboard!

Mercury 4, 5 and 6hp FourStrokes feature integral fuel tanks with an external fuel-shutoff valve, as well as a fuel-tank cap on top of the cowl. For extended range, these engines also can be connected to a remote fuel tank placed in the boat.

Through-prop exhaust on all Mercury 4 - 6hp FourStrokes exits underwater for quiet operation. Automatic decompression bleeds off cylinder pressure to reduce the pulling force required to start the engine.
