Rated 5 out of 5 by DSeminole Graet buy This was a good buy in quality and price, the battery indicator is usefull. Honestly would do again. May 4, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by TLayman Might as well... The trolling motor itself has plenty of power without draining much power.. That being said I could troll with my gas motor and be quieter than the one i got! It knocks terribly and reverse is twice as loud! Wont ever stray from Minn Kota again! May 1, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by olfatguy Too good to be true!! Bought this motor a couple of years ago but didn't use it right away. Finally put it on the boat and used it twice, last year, fishing in small ponds with my son-in-law. The motor worked flawlessly and had power to spare (was really a bit too fast at slowest speed but, not too bad). Put it back on the boat last week (4/19/2012) to take the grandkids fishing. Hit the switch and nothing. When I got home, I found that the motor was full of water and locked up. The magnets, in the motor, had come loose from the housing as well (probably from the freezing and thawing from a winter in my unheated shed). I cleaned it up, reglued the magnets, replaced the seals/o-rings and, bolted it back together (the bolts were just past finger tight when I took it apart). Works ok, on the bench. Will try it in the water this week. Again, this happened after only two times in the water. If the motor had been put together properly, with good seals and o-rings, I wouldn't have one bad thing to say about it. Over the last 50 years, I've had some of the cheapest, most beat up junk you could imagine for trolling motors and none of them leaked water. I can't be sure if it was the quality of the seals or the lack of quality control in assembly that was the problem but, either way, I won't buy another one. April 22, 2012

A:Meter goes 0 to 8. 8 is fully charged battery. Depending on the battery, you can run as little as 2 hours at full speed or 6hrs at full speed
Details:There is a plastic sleeve on the shaft on the upper end of the clamp along with a piece of spring steel that tightens on the shaft to control the tension for steering. Both of those pieces are missing from my motor. Have used it twice and noticed they were gone.
Details:21ft pontoon. I'm wanting to know if the shaft is long enough for a pontoon. Gift for hubby and I have no idea if it will work. He only fishes a few times a year so minimal use.

A:Yes. Go with the 55# thrust model with the 42" shaft. This is the most powerful model you can buy that will run off a single marine battery, and the longer shaft should be plenty to reach down into the water from a pontoon. Hope he likes it!
Details:Can different size shafts be ordered for this trolling motor? We need it to mount up on a bowfishing deck, but reach the water. The length it is, won't work.
Details:I bought a separate Maximizer several years ago and would like to use it ti extend battery life.
Details:I have a 12.6' SeaEagle sport runabout inflatable that I'm going to use for fishing smaller AZ lakes. I am looking at the Traxxis variable speed 36-inch with 55lbs of thrust. Is it worth the extra $200 to get that one or is this BPS Prowler the better option? Any insight is definitely appreciated!
