The Evolution & Demise of McCulloch Outboard Motors

Champion ⇒ Scott-Atwater ⇒ Scott ⇒ Scott-McCulloch ⇒ McCulloch

McCulloch Motors Corporation was an American manufacturer of small two-stroke gasoline engines and introduced its first chainsaw in 1948, the Model 5-49 McCulloch. In 1956, McCulloch purchased Scott-Atwater Manufacturing Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. McCulloch discontinued the outboard engine line in 1967 with only minimal short-term support mainly to satisfy contractual obligations to Sears Roebuck. In 1974, the company was sold to Black and Decker who sold it to a private group in November 1984. In 1999, bankruptcy brought the sale of what was left of McCulloch’s various divisions. McCulloch is currently a brand within the Husqvarna Group.

History of the McCulloch Corporation

The McCulloch Motors Corporation was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1943 by Robert Paxton McCulloch to produce small two-stroke gasoline engines. McCulloch moved its operation from Wisconsin to California in 1946. In the 1950s, McCulloch started manufacturing target drone engines, which were later sold to RadioPlane in the 1970s. These McCulloch 4318 small four cylinder horizontally opposed two-stroke engines were also popular for use in various small autogyros, such as the Bensen B-8M and Wallis WA-116.

McCulloch also started Paxton Automotive, manufacturing McCulloch-labeled superchargers like the one fitted to the Kaiser Manhattan, the 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk, and Ford Thunderbird.

In 1956, McColloch purchased the Scott-Atwater Manufacturing Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota – the manufacturer of Scott-Atwater outboard boat engines.

In 1959, McColloch produced their first kart engine, the McCulloch MC-10, an adapted chainsaw two-stroke cycle engine. Bill Van Tichelt of VanTech Engineering designed and produced one of the first specialized and most successful intake manifolds for the McCulloch kart engine, along with mufflers, conversion kits, throttle linkages, air stacks and bottom slopers.

In 1964, McCulloch founded Lake Havasu City, Arizona, with a factory and housing for its workers.

In 1967, McCulloch abruptly discontinued its line of outboard boat engines with only minimal short-term support mainly to satisfy contractual obligations to Sears Roebuck. This decision was reportedly due to McCulloch’s desire to concentrate on development of Lake Havasu City. McCulloch was also starting to face stiff competition from Chrysler Marine after they acquired West Bend outboards in 1965.

In the 1970s, McCulloch’s range of products was expanded to add generators, hedge trimmers, string trimmers, and leaf blowers, but started a narrow focus on lawn and garden equipment.

Black and Decker bought McCulloch Motors on October 4, 1974, and sold the company to a private group in November 1984.

In January 1999, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and sold its European division to Husqvarna AB. In October 1999, its North American operation was acquired by the Taiwanese company Jenn Feng Industrial Co., Ltd. Jenn Feng added electric power tools and pressure washers to the product line.

In March 2003, MTD Products, Inc. signed a distribution and licensing agreement with Jenn Feng in which MTD would exclusively produce McCulloch products in North America.

In March 2008, Husqvarna acquired the outdoor products division of Jenn Feng, gaining access to the McCulloch brand in the North American market. McCulloch is currently a brand within the Husqvarna Group.

Today, few McCulloch outboard motors remain operational due to the lack of parts availability.

  • Acquired over 120,000 pages of product documentation including Catalogs, Brochures, SpecSheets, Pictures, Serial Number Guides, Installation Manuals, OpManuals, Parts Catalogs, Parts Bulletins, Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, Service Bulletins, and Recalls.

General Comments About the Website

FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 20,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I'm surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member's library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I'm thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work."

FROM Huey: "I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 100,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 20,000 articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them?"

FROM Dewey: "Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially."

FROM Louie: "I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members' Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy's magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the "Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert's answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only $25. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle."

FROM Scrooge: "You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they're adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat. And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I'd lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug."

FROM Daisy: "I'm just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine."

FROM Scrooge: "After seeing how much fun you all have on the water together, I regret that I didn't have that much fun when I was young. I've had a change of heart, and I'm giving each of you a Lifetime Academy Membership."

FROM Editor: "For those of you that have stayed with us this far, many thanks, and we hope that you found this little narrative informative. Your faithful support inspires us to keep working on this phenomenal website. We know that we have a lot more to do. Ultimately, we hope that we can help you enjoy the wonder filled world of boating as much as we do. We are all waiting to see what you have to say about this webpage article.
