Mercury 60 HP Four Stroke 60ELHPT Outboard Motor

Mercury 60 HP Four Stroke 60ELHPT Outboard Motor

Mercury 60 HP 4-Stroke 60ELHPT Command Thrust 20 Inch Shaft Length Outboard Motor


The Mercury 60ELHPT Command Thrust Big Tiller FourStoke matches the acceleration and fuel efficiency of the competitor's more expensive 70hp outboard models. Its 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 60ELHPT 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 60ELHPT 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 both the 60ELHGA and 60ELHPT 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.
