''The new Minn Kota Fortrex is absolutely the toughest, smoothest, and quietest trolling motor on the market. It's practically bulletproof.''

Minn Kota® Fortrex® Bow-Mount Trolling Motors feature an innovative mono-arm design, Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS), Lift Assist, indestructible composite shaft, streamlined foot pedal, 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
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.
Universal Sonar 2
Dual beam capability (with all Humminbird®  DualBeam PLUS™  and select Lowrance® and Garmin® units) provides expanded coverage and greater bottom detail at 83 kHz and 200 kHz. Temperature-sensing compatibility with all major sonar brands. Integrated, concealed transducer is protected from the elements.
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.
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Upgrade I am convinced Minnkota makes the best product out there. Had a Maxxum that I tried to make into a pretzel ( Even the best are not indestructable ) needed a replacement so I went with the Fortrex with Universal sonar. I love it, the lift assist is great, the motor runs quiet and I get very good life out of my batteries. Only caution I would have is to make sure you order the correct adapter for your electronics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by luv 2 fish I've only got out once with it and have always used motoguide which are junk both motoguide breakaway system would just fold under had too get use to power switch on the left side motor run great love the lift assist also i was missing a screw on shipping minn kota was great to deal with sent my part right out the only thing I don't like is that i think that the motor is a little bit louder than my motoguide when it wasx new not much though hope it holds up longer than my motoguides went though two in five years and tech support said there was nothing worng October 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trolling motor! I put this motor to a rigorous 4 day tournament test right out of the box. There were 30-40 mph winds and the Fortrex performed flawless. The lift assist is awesome and it performs quieter and longer than any previous trolling motor I've owned. May 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Motor Awesome motor !! I have only had it for a short time, but so far, I LOVE IT !!! Easy to control, and the lift assist is totally awesome !!! Great product by Minn Kota !!!! April 25, 2011

Measure from the mounting surface to the waterline. For rough water conditions, add 5” to the waterline measurement. For hand-control trolling motors, add 12” to Recommended Shaft Length.
