With this tiller for LS outboard cylinders (VHM EX 80 et 3500 HP), the boat can be steered from the motor.
Thanks to this function, the motor can easily be operated without having to resort to the steering wheel (for various fishing actions, anchorage, watch and emergency tiller if need be). Equipped with a quick coupling, the tiller can be fitted and removed easily and stored in a locker. Manufactured in stainless steel tube, its weight does not exceed 0.8 kg. Do not use at a speed exceeding 6 knots.
This new video provides step-by-step assistance on how to replace the motor brush-holder on power packs RV1,RV2,RV3,EV2,EV3.

Correct crimping of fittings on Lecomble & Schmitt flexible tubes will ensure good overall performance of our hydraulic steering systems.
Two animated technical videos are available on our Internet website and on our YouTube channel. They describe how to crimp fittings with clamps or screwed connection fittings on 6 mm and 8 mm flexible tubes.
The first energy self-sufficient boat was launched on 14th April 2017 in Saint Malo waters. In July this catamaran, named “Energy Observer” will set out on a tremendous challenge!
The boat has indeed the ambitious project to become the symbol of energy mix management. In a six-year journey around the world, completely autonomously by means of its hydrogen propulsion and renewable energies (wind power and solar energy), the “Solar Impulse” of the seas aims to be at the forefront of a genuine energy revolution.
We are proud to be a supplier for this innovative project. The catamaran hydraulic steering system is supplied by LS. This equipment meets the requirements of such a challenge for smooth, efficient and reliable navigation.
Lecomble & Schmitt wishes fair winds to Energy Observer!
In a context of harmonisation of its range of outboard steering cylinders, LS has revamped the colours of its VHM 226. From now on it will be supplied in grey and orange anodized aluminium.
These bright and modern colours reflect the evolution of the market trends in which Lecomble & Schmitt has been adapting and innovating for many years.
At the beginning of 2017 Lecomble & Schmitt informed you of the release of a new steering wheel tilt system “tilt HB5” in versions 26 and 30 cc/turn.
As the most compact tilt system on the market, it is today available in 6 different cubic capacities from 20 to 50 cc/turn, the same capacities as for L.S range of outboard helm pumps.
With each one of these models it is possible to orientate the steering wheel within 5 available positions from -24° to + 24°, thus providing a greater steering comfort, whatever the position of the operator.
Already complying with the European Directive on pleasure boating in force for many years, LS has seen all its certificates extended according to the new directive N° 2013/53/UE which became compulsory in 2017.
By adhering to the requirements of this new directive, LS proves to be a leading player on the market of hydraulic steering systems for boats.
This new video is the most recent addition to the series on LS hydraulic steering systems for outboard motors. It provides step-by-step assistance on how to fill in and bleed your system.
There is an alternative way to this manual procedure with LS Speedy Purge which makes it possible to carry out the same operation in a fast and simple manner.
