Hello Geert,

Good to hear from you again.

This prop was used on the Benz BZ IV of 200ps on the DFW CV and CVI. Also, one is recorded on an Alb JI, the trench straffing aircraft.

With kind regards,

Bob

Hello Bob,

The propeller is a pusher.

Gert,

I don't have any details of a Heine pusher prop for a Benz 200ps engine and I have now added your details to my database, for which many thanks.

I have 1001 lines of data in my German prop database and only one of those is for a Benz 200ps in a pusher configuration. It was made by Imperial for a Friedrichshafen G II with a diameter of 2900mm and stamped druck.

With kind regards,

Bob

Gert,

I was beginning to add your information to my database when I noticed that I had already listed it in December 2015, from information on this website which described it as a tractor prop.

mit freundliche GrŁssen!

Bob

Iím sure itís a counterclockwise prop.
The blades have another direction.
I havenít been able to find druk or edeldruk on it yet.
But itís the same shape like the imperial and also with metal sheeting on the tips.
So could it be from a friedriechshafen?

Hello Geertse,

It does seem likely.
