I think all I can tell from what you've provided is that it's 48 inches long and has a pitch of 32", and even that may be incorrect.

Do you have a picture or any other details? There are thousands and thousands of different propellers out there.

Default Banks-Maxwell Props

Garryhall:
I am learning a bit more about a couple of Banks-Maxwell props my father used in his "snowplane." The prop I have is a pusher prop, designed for Continental 65 or 85 horse engines, to push a snow vehicle riding on three skis. I have an original Banks-Maxwell manual as well as some schematics for the vehicle which they called a "Snow-sled." I'll try to dig it out and post more sometime.

Interesting forum.

I've seen those sell on eBay for $100 to $150 or so, but I think those sales may be to people who think they're buying a display aircraft propeller.
