Includes stainless steel 7.5" x 12" adjustable wiper arm, 11" blade, and all parts for installation
For use on flat windshields only
Requires 7/16" diameter hole for installation

Hi - I have a Dyer 29 and I want to replace my dead motor driven wiper with a manual one, but shaft has to go thru an 1-1/4" wood frame. And I wouldn't mind a larger blade, maybe 15" or so.
This only comes in a 7/8" mounting thickness version. You would have to remove 3/8" to install.

are there length option on the shaft between the blade and ooerating handle?
Without going out to the storage facility and looking, I can't say for sure, but I think there is some adjustment available. I replaced a unit on an old 1988 Crestliner boat and the new one works well...in fact better than the original one. I am sure the glass could be different thicknesses and this would work fine.Mike S.
The threaded shaft is 1 1/8" long, inside mounting nut is 5/16" thick. it comes with rubber seals on both sides. The spring hinge is capable of maintaining pressure for the wiper within the range of the mounting. I mounted mine on a UTV; plexiglass windshield. works well.
does the assembly fit through glass/ perspex or through fibreglass?
I have an old Crestliner boat that had one of these factory installed. The rubber blade and its holder wore out so I got a new one last summer. This assembly is much better than the old one. It does fit through a hold in the windshield. I assume the windshield is plexiglas and not glass. This is a good unit and I do recommend it.Mike
WE INSTALLED IT THROUGH FIBERGLASS BUT IT COULD BE INSTALLED IN GLASS IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DRILL THE HOLE
I drilled a hole through my plexiglas windshield. After tightening the flange nut the wiper itself has a strong spring to apply pressure of the wiper blade on the windshield. Works well. I have mine mounted on the windshield of a JohnDeere Gator. Not sure how you would drill through glass....never done that before. Hope this helps.
WILL THIS WORK ON A PLEXIGLASS WINDSHIELD ON A UTV?
I am sure it would work but anything on a plexiglass wind shield will scratch. On another note the wiper is very short and made very cheaply. I had to adapt a standard wiper to get the results I was looking for. The manual handle is made very well. I don't know why they didn't go with a standard wiper and arm.
I don't know if this will help you or not, but I bought a boat years ago that has a wiper like this one (only not as well made). It gave out so I bought this one. This is a very good unit and works just great on my boat and I would recommend it to anyone, but I have no idea if you will be able to mount it on your ATV or not.Mike
Well made, easy to install (7/16th bit), effective. Thanks for the BB hat!
