Hartzell Propeller Craft Passed Down for Generations

Hartzell Propeller traces its beginnings back to the 1860’s, where 17 year old John Hartzell began a career by selling lightening rods. After borrowing $25 and purchasing a horse and wagon, he founded the Hartzell Farm Wagon Company in 1875. In the 1890’s, John’s son George joined the company and later purchased it, renaming the company as George W.

Hartzell Company. The main focus of the company was to manufacture gun stocks that were used in World War I. The company continued to be passed down in the family, eventually reaching George’s son Robert Hartzell. On the side, he had a small airplane in which he did regular maintenance. In 1917, Orville Wright, a very well-known man, suggested he use its walnut to manufacture aircraft propellers. Thus, Hartzell Walnut Propeller Company was founded. The company provided numerous aircraft propellers for World War I warplanes. Then in World War II, the company manufactured metal propellers for Hamilton Sundstrand and also produced first composite propellers for the Republic Seabee. In 1948, they began rolling out designs for aluminum propellers which were used in the Aero Commander, Piper Apache, Cessna 310, and Beech Twin Bonanza.

The turboprop propeller was later introduced in 1961, with the certified 5-bladed propeller coming later on in 1975. 3 years later, they produced a composite aramid fiber propeller. Hartzell Propellers is a still a specialty manufacturer of all types of propellers in addition to spinners, ice protection systems, propeller controls, governors, de-ice and fluid anti-ice systems. As a customer-driven company, Hartzell focuses on building its engineering, sales, and manufacturing team, which includes employees that could be anything from weekend hobbyists to full-time pilots. They also provide extensive aftermarket technical support, training, and overhaul and repair services.
