Better than the last one It was time to update my old MinnKota 40# thrust with something a lot newer and more power for my 18' G-3. I have only used it once and no complaints, works like a champ. Extending and retracting the motor was a breeze. My only issue was the mounting. It took me 3 evenings to mount the new Maxxum. I removed the old one and understood the mounting holes wouldn't line up for the new bracket. No issue. First you have to assemble the motor and directions are not that easy. I am somewhat mechanically inclined, but I was still lost in a couple of steps. Also, the directions neglected to mention several key items such as proper use, adjustments, etc. I looked for additional information and was a little upset that I had to go online to see videos on using the trolling motor. Anyways, all said and done, I love it, my wife loves it (ease of operation for her), and I recommend it to anyone. August 1, 2012
Just a caution about this motor This motor came on my Sylvan deep-V which I purchased used. While the motor runs fine and has plenty of power, it is not a good match for this type of boat. The direct cable has to go up before it goes to the motor and this makes it awkward to move the footpad around. The Maxxu is intended for Bass Boats with a large, flat deck. I'm getting a Power Drive or Terrova for this boat as soon as possible. The other thing I don't like is that you cannot take your foot off the control while the motor is running. The torque of the propeller immediately turns it around and puts you in reverse. Not great for my kind of fishing. So, nothing wrong with the motor, just be careful that it matches your needs.

Minn Kota Motor Failure I replaced my MotorGuide trolling motor after 12 years of use because I wore out the foot pedal. I switched to a Minn Kota on advice from a friend. After two seasons of use the motor is now in the shop. Somehow the motor housing leaked, filled with water and rusted all the internal brushes and motor. I take meticulous care of my boat and this unit was not abused. To add insult to injury the Minn Kota repair shop has had the unit for 3 weeks and counting. They keep making excuses about parts ordered and meanwhile it’s a very short boating season here in Colorado… I would not buy another Minn Kota. May 9, 2012
So Far So Good Finally upgraded from my old 46lb thrust to a 70lb Maxxum. Quiet running, comfortable pedal, easy steering, and I like the variable speed. April 22, 2012

Mine does not have any lift assist - you have to pull it up with a cord. It also needs to be turned slightly by hand to stow it properly.

A: 
Variable speed allows you to adjust the speed from 0 to 100 percent vice having just five speeds. It allows you to go super slow or full speed. It's like a dimmer switch on your lights in your home.

A: 
Variable speed could be compared to a rotary dimmer switch you may have on the wall in your house; a smooth turning wheel in the foot pedal without definite "clicks". Non-variable is normally a 5 set speed motor with a set point for each speed or 5 "clicks". Minn Kota also incorporates the Maximizer into the variable speed units which is supposed to prolong battery life by pulsing power to the motor. I believe the non-variable units do not have the maximizer and the soft start feature.

Details: 
Does the soft start feature of the Maximizer hinder blowing weeds and grass off the prop? I can see drifting into some green stuff and when you hit the pedal to move, there isn't enough spin to get the grass to fly off. I've heard this mentioned as an issue but don't know if it's true...

Answers

A: 
Some 24V systems use a three wire if the motor is designed to be either 12V or 24V otherwise the 24V is usually a two wire. You should be considering a heavier gauge than 12 or 14 even though you actually have a lower amperage load with the 24V than the 12V. Ohms law is relative here with the lower amperage as well as the line drop in voltage you will have coming from the batteries to the motor which at times could be near 19 - 20 feet depending on the boat. Many rigs see at least 8 ga. or 6 ga. to compensate for the line drop which should not exceed 5% in voltage to the motor

A: 
Yes. On mine it's a toggle switch on the left side of the control. Has to be changed by hand. Constant turns the motor on but you still can control the speed with the dial on the footpad. Manual allows on and off as you press the button on the footpad at whatever speed is set on the dial.
