The propeller is available with three, four or five blades with the standard version being the four-bladed design.

The applicable subheading for the bronze controllable pitch ship propeller will be 8487.10.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for ships’ or boats’ propellers and blades therefor of copper. The rate of duty is free.
