Tabs

SLT SERIES

SELF LEVELING TABS

Even small boats need trim tabs! Now you can enjoy the durability of Bennett trim tabs in a quick and easy, transom-only trim tab system. There are no hydraulics needed – simply mount the two actuators and trim tabs and you’re on your way to a smoother ride.

The SLT reacts instantly to boat speed and water pressure by adding trim when it’s needed. At slower speeds, when the boat is trying to get on plane, the actuators hold the trim tabs down, which lifts the stern and simultaneously puts the boat at planing attitude. On plane, and as the boat’s speed increases, water pressure pushes the tabs up. You will enjoy a smoother ride while the SLT does all the work.

BOLT SERIES

BOLT ELECTRIC TABS

In 1959, Charles Bennett invented the first adjustable trim tab, dramatically improving a boat’s performance in an expanded range of conditions. Having earned a reputation for exceptional durability and reliability, Bennett Trim Tabs can be found on boats all over the world. A few years back Bennett introduced a whole new BOLT Electric Trim Tab System which is a result of 50 years of experience.

In comparisment with similar electrical systems BOLT Electric combines latest technology with a water tight actuator. This will result of many years of troublefree operation.

Features and Benefits
  • Superior seal design inspired by over 50 years of Bennett’s proven success in hydraulic trimming techniques
  • Robust, water-tight black nylon actuator provides trouble-free operation for years to come
  • Wires and seals completely protected from harsh marine environment preventing problematic leakage and marine growth
  • Installation is fast and simple without the need to assemble the actuator yourself

CLASSIC HYDRAULIC TRIM TAB SYSTEMS

The Power of Hydraulics – Proven Durability and Reliability 

Classic hydraulic tabs are ideal for boats that stay in the water, requiring high speed action under extreme marine conditions. Choosing the right sized trim tab for your boat depends on power, engine configuration, weight distribution, the type of boat and how it’s used. With more options than any other trim tab manufacturer, Bennett is ready to help you select a size and style that fits your needs.

Bennett actuators are strong, flexible nylon/fiberglass hydraulic cylinders that push the tabs into position. All hydraulic lines and wires are internal, concealed by the upper hinge, so they’re not exposed to harsh environments.

The HPU is a compact, powerhouse pump that creates hydraulic pressure to operate the trim tabs.

Features and Benefits
  • Get on plane fast, and stay on plane at intermediate speeds
  • Correct listing and uneven loads
  • Reduce pounding and eliminate porpoising
  • Increase speed
  • Improve visibility and safety
  • Improve fuel efficiency
  • Precise and accurate control
  • Low maintenance with long-term value
  • Easy to service
Items included in set
  • (2) Trim Plane Assemblies
  • (2) Hydraulic Actuators
  • Hydraulic Power Unit

AUTO TAB CONTROL (hydraulic systems only)

Cruise Control for your Hydraulic Trim Tabs
Interacting directly with your hydraulic trim tab system, the Auto Tab Control (ATC) automatically monitors your boat’s position and maintains the perfect cruising attitude. All you do is set the optimum running attitude for your boat (zero point) and save it into memory. The ATC calibrates and analyzes the attitude readings more than a thousand times per second and adjusts the tabs automatically for you.

It’s a smart, yet simple system that recreates the programmed attitude, regardless of changes in speed, weight distribution, or sea conditions. The ATC is also ideal for cruising at constant speeds over long distances – those times when you want to relax and not worry about adjusting your trim tabs. Easy to install–Just plug and play!

Features & Benefits
  • Saves you money on fuel. A properly trimmed boat can significantly lower fuel costs in a single season of usage.
  • Easy to install – just plug and play! Very few tools are needed for installation, and everything plugs right into the ATC Control Unit.
  • No more guesswork – it trims the boat better than you can. Calculating more than a thousand attitude readings per second, the ATC adjusts your trim tabs to changes in vessel speed, sea conditions and shifting weight.
  • The most comfortable ride you’ve ever had on your boat. Maintain the best cruising attitude without the need to constantly work manual trim controls.
Options
  • AC3000-ATC System 12V
  • AC3000A-ATC w/Bridge 12V
  • AC3EIC-ATC System for EIC 12/24V

HYDRAULIC POWER UNIT

A compact powerhouse that creates hydraulic pressure to lower and raise the trim tabs. It employs two solenoid valves to direct the flow of fluid to the actuators. The solenoid valves lock tightly to secure the tabs in place. Strength to lower and hold even the largest tabs in place. The Lexan cover provides water resistance to the electrohydraulic unit, and the translucent reservoir allows fluid check at a glance.

Mounting bracket sold separately (# H1179). HPU measures 4″ x 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Uses automatic transmission fluid. Includes pump, solenoid valves, reservoir and cover.
