Imtra Debuts Coastal Plus Wiper Motor
Powerful Wiper Motor Provides High Performance and Reliable Operation at an Affordable Price
New Bedford, Mass. - Imtra, the leading manufacturer and importer of quality marine products, has announced today the new Coastal Plus Wiper Motor. A competitively priced, heavy-duty update to the existing Coastal Wiper Motor range, the compact Coastal Plus Motor boasts a powerful 12 Newton meter (Nm) torque performance compared to the 10Nm operation associated with traditional wiper motors on the market. The added strength of the Coastal Plus motor offers boaters a high performance, reliable wiper solution for impeccably clear windows. Built specifically for the marine environment, the Coastal Plus Wiper Motor is rated to the IP65 sprayproof and dust standards and ensures boaters can operate their vessels in diverse weather conditions with unfettered visibility.
The Coastal Plus Wiper Motor from Imtra is designed for window sizes found on smaller vessels.

Pushing up to a 24-inch wiper arm and 22-inch blade, the Coastal Plus Wiper Motor has three different shaft length options, two speeds and a simple park setting controlled by an internal selector switch.
