Rated 4 out of 5 by Minn Kota Maxxum Installation was no problem. I replaced an old motor guide and the Maxcum's mounting holes matched so no drilling. Very pleased with my new Maxxum. March 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rebate? Nah......... I cannot recommend Minn Kota. I recently purchased a smaller trolling motor that had a $25 dollar rebate offer......filled out all the paperwork correctly and was within the date parameters......got a card back from the company that said date of purchase was outside of the dates of the offer. They conveniently insisted on the original receipt, of course. If you expect to get your rebate you're rolling the dice. July 29, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Buy a Motorguide! I have had this trolling motor for less than 3 months and last time out noticed the motor was making a lot noise when in use. After getting back home and removing the prop the prop shaft was bent! Now I have been very easy on this motor. I don't even recall hitting anything the day it started making alot of noise. The previous motor was a 52 lb motorguide brute that I put through the ringer and worked till the day I bought this 70lb maxxum. Big mistake should have stuck with what worked. June 14, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I won't do this again!!!!!! I am sorry to say that after a long relationship with Minn Kota it's time for a "Divorce". I have owned two(2) of the Maxxum trolling motors and unfortunately it has cost me over $2,000. Shortly(about 4 months) after my purchase of my first Maxxum I had gone to Florida fishing and on the 2nd day of a week long fishing trip my motor stopped working. I finally borrowed enough tools to remove the motor and the next day drove to a repair shop about 50 miles from where I was staying. A friendly technician got to me about 2 hrs. later and after a short diagnostic test informed me that I had a "bad card" and ordered me one to be delivered the next day. We got the card and got it installed after lunch the next day so I only lost about 2 1/2 days of valuable fishing time. Next I was once again out of town fishing in Fla. when the Maxxum unit went out on me the end of the first day(Friday) but this time i had my own tools so I pulled the motor Saturday morning and got on the computer to locate another service center. This time I found one only 35 miles away in Crystal River so I took off. Once again I was fortunate enough to find another friendly technician that quickly determined I had an armature leg that had gone bad. He was able to get an emergency order end and it was delivered 2 days later(monday) about mid-day and I was back fishing by Tuesday. Next the unit went out(this time pretty close to home) so I took it to a service dealer someone had told me about in Moultrie, Ga. When he opened the unit water ran out and we were once again on the phone to Minn Kota begging for help. Minn Kota finally agreed to send the dealer a whole new lower unit which arrived several days later and was installed without issue. I later had the new minn Kota I had just purchased to go on my other boat(a river rig) and on a fishing trip(once again to Fla.) the speed control unit went out and all I had was high speed no matter wher you set the dial. Fortunately the unit was only a few weeks old and I was only 60 miles from the dealer where the unit had been purchased so I drove straight to the dealer, handed him my receipt and after a little discussion he agreed to take the unit off. You think I bought another minn kota? PROBABLY NOT!!!!!!!!!! As a matter of fact, I am about to have to change out the first unit I mentioned above and you can bet "it darn sure won't be a minn kota either. I do want to say that the factory and especially the technicians were as helpful as they could be BUT, with fishing trips like this cost you over a thousand bucks a pop, I have probably "tasted" about all the minn kota i want to taste. As for the rest of you goes, you get all you want. I work hard and fish hard and need to spend my money in a "value added manner". Have also had 2 friends that have had their share of issues with the minn kota line too. thanks, dearhunter February 6, 2013

A: 
Hi, thank you for your question. The Minn Kota® Maxxum® Bow Mount Trolling Motors can only be used in Freshwater. The motor would corrode when used in saltwater. You will want to look for a Saltwater Trolling motor like the Minn Kota® Riptide® SM Series Bow Mount Saltwater Trolling Motors SKU: 1543035, which will work in salt or fresh water.

A: 
It should not cause any electonic interference. However, if it does it might be from the battery for the trolling motor and sonar unit. Here is what I found online: The solution in my case
where there are two 12 volt batterys and the change to 24 volt occurs at the
plug in and NOT AT THE BATTERIES is to run a light 14-18ga wire from each of the negitive termals on your trolling motor batteries to your negitive termanal of your starting battery. Fuse each wire with 2-3 amp fuse. I hope this helps. Thanks

A: 
No! The mount is 4 bolts through the deck and the bracket that holds the shaft in place is a pain in the butt to remove. But it's a good motor and the impact shock absorber is really good. Also the motor locks into place on the deck for running/trailering best on the market.

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 works off a 10 position rolling wheel with no position stops. You use your foot on the foot control to advance the speeds until you reach the boat speed you want as opposed to the 5 speed which clicks into place at each of the 5 speed settings. The variable allows you to set your speed anywhere along the one to 10 range of the roller. 1.2, 1.4, 2.3, 5-9, 6.4, 7,8, 9.8 etc. 1 being super low up to 10 max fast. Tip the variable while better is about $200 more!!!!

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...

Yes it does hinder your escape if you are fishing in vegetation such as lilly pads. I have been fishing the maxxum series for years and the only advantage i have found was the extended battery use. I have already replaced one of my minn kotas and will replace another one this spring. hope this helps

A: 
depends on the length you have to pull. in most applications #10(multi strand) will suffice. with a motor that is 12/24 you will need three strands and with a straight 24 and 2 strand #10 is all you will need. always remember that DC current requires heavier conductors than AC current.

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.
