''The Minn Kota® Fortrex® is absolutely the toughest, smoothest, and quietest trolling motor on the market. It's practically bulletproof.''
Alton Jones
2008 Bassmaster Classic® Winner

Minn Kota® Fortrex® Bow-Mount Trolling Motors feature an innovative mono-arm design, Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS), Lift Assist, indestructible composite shaft, hand or foot control models, and Digital Maximizer™.
Innovative Mono-Arm Design
Features an extruded structural beam that operates with no metal-to-metal contact and 75% less torsion. A single hinge point and rear pivot bearing with 20% more surface area deliver less wear, longer life, and quieter operation than traditional scissor mounts. Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS)
A Minn Kota exclusive! Integrated spring arm applies force in both the stowed and deployed positions, eliminating motor play and reducing noise. Reduces steering torque at higher speeds or in heavy chop.
Lift-Assist
Patented design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half. Features a 300 series stainless steel, nitrogen gas-charged spring.
Indestructible Composite Shaft
Pound for pound, stronger than steel. Flexes on impact. Will not break, kink, or corrode. Guaranteed for life.
Streamlined Foot Pedal (most models)
The redesigned foot pedal creates more space for your foot, while keeping the momentary button within easy access. In addition, the speed control has been re-designed to provide for easier adjustment.
Digital Maximizer™
Up to five times longer run time on a single charge. Controls the draw of power at variable speeds to conserve battery power and extend run time.  
Removable Bowguard 360º™
Allows the motor and bowguard to be lifted off the mount simply by removing a single cap screw. This feature also includes a dual bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved breakaways from any angle.

Minn Kota Fortex 101 I have been a Minn Kota Trolling Motor user and fan for many years. Recently my 5 year old Maxxum 101 died a sad death. With vacation a short time away I needed a trolling motor fast and found out the Fortex 101 (36 volt) was kind of hard to find. I felt lucky to find one in stock at BPS and ordered it right away and paid extra for 2 day shipping to give me enough time to mount it. I HATE the thing as it is noisy, no slow start (if you arent careful it will knock you in the lake), and is very loud on highest setting yet it is light and feels like a tinker toy. In addition the holes from the Maxxum did not match the holes for the Fortex so the marina had to drill more holes in my boat. The first time I used it I called for assistance and It took a long time on hold to get anyone at the Minn Kota customer service (they actually close at 5:30 eastern time) but when i did I was told to get it to an authorized center, 75 miles away. There I was told that the motor is working normally and that is how it is supposed to behave. Well once I recover from the over 1500 bucks I shelled out for this junk heap special (including sales tax and shipping) I am getting a motor guide. August 6, 2012
Not for me First day on the water it locked down and would not come back up. I had to cut plastic off just to get it in the upright position. It did ok for a year then then broke again. Spent 500 bucks to get it running.....will never buy another Minn Kota. February 2, 2015
For NurseBob In answer to your comment about no place to put the rope when moving: If you notice where the cable goes from the foot pedal into the head, there is a ribbed section where it connects. The rope snaps right into any of the ribs, holding it perfectly. I do this with my Edge all the time, when moving or transporting my boat... February 18, 2013
New Fortrex Recently, I purchased the new 80# Fortrex bow mount to replace the older Maxxum 70# that I was using. First, installation was easy as all of the mounting holes correlated with the old motor. Second, I like the infinitely variable speed control. Third, the motor is quieter than my old motor. And, lastly, the piston assist for raising/lowering is sure easier on the back. The only item that I didn't like, is that the rope handle has no attachment point on the motor anywhere, to preclude it blowing around when running from spot to spot with the big motor. April 3, 2010

I have a humminbird HD with Down Imaging GPS on the bow and I'm worried the built in transducer may not be as good as the Humminbird one. Also I may up grade to a Down and Side imaging sonar. Anyone run into this or have a problem? I will go another rout if I have to mount my Humminbird one to it.

A: 
The built in transducer is great BUT you cannot use it for down or side imaging. You must mount your down/side imaging transducer to the trolling motor.

A: 
The Universal Sonar 2 delivers exclusive fish finding features from uncluttered, interference-free sonar. With the shielded cable connectors, it should virtually eliminate the possibility of sonar interference. We have not heard of any other customers having problems when using the built in transducers. You might use the Down and Side imaging sonar for a better readout. Thanks
