TAYLOR MADE
Oil-Free D-Icer™

The first affordable oil-free de-icers

Dual internal seals in combination with a double-lip shaft seal and unique oil-free design ensures long life while protecting the environment from any chance of leaks. High-performance propeller is protected by one-piece shroud that prevents large debris from being drawn into the propeller. Continuous duty, single-phase motor is less expensive to operate and more efficient than conventional oil-filled designs. Includes 50' oil-resistant power cord. 115V AC/60Hz.

Don't even think about it

Comments about Oil-Free D-Icer:

Not reliable and didn't last. Bought 1/2 hp Taylor Made Deicer in Jan. 2010 for use at the Lake of Ozarks. Actually only used it about 10 days a year. Winter 2013-14it started tripping the breaker. We never knew if it would work or not. When the lake is starting to freeze over, you don't want to worry about the reliability of your deicing unit. All the good ole boy handy guys at the lake wouldn't touch it. Took it in to a shop in Camdenton that sold the unit to see if he could fix it. The guy said to not even bother. He had many complaints on this deicer. So for a little over $500. we got a motor/unit that ran about 33 days...Doesn't seem worth it to me.

How you use the de-icer

By Hansen

Comments about Taylor Made Oil-Free D-Icer:

Have used de-icing pumps for the last 30 years

When I first started to use pumps I would start and stop the pump. When running the pump would heat up. When I stopped the pump it would cool down and creating a vacuum and pull lake water into the pump causing said pump to fail.

To correct this is once the pump has started I let run the whole season and when I shut it off I pull the pump out of the water. I am getting 10 years out of the pumps

Comments about Taylor Made Oil-Free D-Icer:

This product never worked a full winter season.It would trip the GFI because of condensation build up internally.Was told this was because of a design flaw and was told to buy a Kasco product.Taylor did repair once and replace once with a refurbished unit.I was told they would not honor any more repair costs and I should buy a new unit at full price so I would have a warranty to use for the next needed repair.As stated above none of the units worked a full season. Dock damage occurred due to the failure of the unit

    Comments about Oil-Free D-Icer:

    Originally purchased as a de-icer and needed an oil free motor to keep from contaminating large collection of exotic waterfowl. Does exceptional job keeping large exhibit pool ice free all winter long! Have had no issues with GFI tripping, they are trouble & worry free, very reliable piece of equipment! We use them year round to provide water flow, great units!
