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.
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.
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.

I bought this motor to replace my Terrova I-Pilot. It worked like a dream until suddenly I could not retrieve it from the trolling position. I noticed it was hung on the inside guides that hold it between the bottom mounted bracket when deploying. There appeared to be some plastic material left on the sides marked R and L for left and right sides . There were only 1/2 tabs holding it on until it got to the front. There they were connected when it seemed they should be cut apart. Bass pro promptly took care of the problem. Pete, The manager at the Hanover store came out a personally took the old motor off and put the store floor model on my boat. You bass guys know what that means. Off with the front console,reaching up under the bow ,taking off the old lock nuts,and putting it all back together. Hooray for Pete!!!!! And hooray for bass pro. I was back on the water in less than two hours.Caution. If you can;t retrive this motor,Check the front tabs of the mounted bracket getting hung in the side of the top swing bracket

Motor installed easy - works great. Easy to use and has plenty of power for my 20 foot boat in heavy river current. Would recommend strongly.

I replaced an older model Minn Kota motor with the Fortrex. The Fortrex operates much smoother than the old unit, especially at higher speeds. This unit doesn't jerk on high powers. It was very easy to install.
