Rated 4 out of 5 by skeeterf80 good for the money bought an edge 45, a couple years ago, i abuse the heck out of it and it never skips a beat, the direction indicator wont stay accurate, i fix it once in a while but it never stays right, other than that its bulletproof April 2, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by dicko5641 Motor Blew on third use Not sure if I got a bad motor or not but the motor blew after the third use, started making weird noises and lost a lot of power. It has a lot of power out of the box for a 45 and is user friendly but I am going to upgrade to a maxxum on my return. March 20, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by fishnmachine junk i bought the 24v 70# thrust bow mount foot controlled... they are junk....didnt even make it a year and the dial on top wasnt pointing in the direction where you should be headed. had it fixed by a minn kota dealer and two trips on the water with it and the same thing....DO NOT BUY January 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by mackyj82 Awsome 70lb 24v Installed the edge 70lb 24 volt on my bass boat and it def does the job. Went from a motorguide 12v and totally out performs(obviously 12 to 24v) but i fish in a strong current and dont have to put on high going against the current. Installation took about 1.5hrs. Little tougher than the last but all in all I love this Unit. Def recommend this product!! January 12, 2012

Details:I measure 32 inches from top of boat to water line,would a 45 inch shaft be long enough?I dont fish too much rough water.
A:I would be safe and go for the 52" shaft.You want the motor head to be aleast 8-12 inches under the surface of the water at all times.The MinnKota web site should have a calculator for determining the correct shaft length..
Details:i just got a humminbird 597 ci di hd combo and would like to mount it to the trolling motor im worried the prop may be to close

A:You should have no problem doing so
A:To determine your shaft length measure from the mounting surface to the waterline with your boat fully loaded.. For rough water conditions, add 5” to the waterline measurement. For hand-control trolling motors, add 12” to recommended shaft length.
A:I have been using mine for a few weeks now. What may be surprising is, I have a torn rotator cuff and need surgery, yet I can still raise and lower pretty easily.

A:I have my second Minn Kota Edge 45 and it is a little stiff to pull the rope. However, it is best to put a little pressure on the head of unit to help the pins release as you pull the rope to deploy the motor. Retrieving the motor is easy and simple and I have had no problems.
