Maxxum 80 - Nearly flawless running for 14 years. I once lost a nut that came loose. I then replaced it with one that was similar to the one lost until I could go over to the local minn kota guy. That is all the problems I have had with this motor. The metal parts have some corrosion due to brackish water but it shows how long i have had this machine. I have torchered this motor in the Delta, California. I keep thinking that it is going to have to break sooner or later but it's like the energizer rabbit and I am very glad about it! Buy Minn Kota, they are the leaders in regards to quality and longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mozo great motor
I've had the Maxxum 55 variable for a season now and it performed great all year. I was used to 24 volt systems and 70 lb thrust on 16 foot aluminum fishing boats. This 55 did a good job with my used 14.5' aluminum with a 40 horse johnson on the transom. I like the cable/direct connect over the power drive, I feel I have better and instant control. Plus I'm used to it. The variable speed is great because the amount of thrust can be fine tuned infinitely (almost) you're not locked in to a preset amount of thrust. The foot control shape is good too with the on/off control easily reached with the big toe area. I'm happy. I added a 2nd battery dedicated to my new side imaging Humminbird sonar so I linked it to a switch so I could change to it late in the day as a back up for the trolling motor. It doesn't interfere with the sonar either. I get most of the day out of one battery with this Maxxum 55 but it's nice to have the 2nd one for that last evening bite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by buckbass444 still the best
I have had both Motorguide and Minkota. My motors take a beating. I have 2 bass boats. I have had Minkota and Motorguide on both and I have to say I am rough on them as there is nowhere I won't fish. Weeds, stumpfields, and rocks. There is no comparrision between the two when you're burried in the weeds or in the middle of a stumpfield. The power and ability of this motor to cut through lilly pads is awsome. The lighted directional arrow is priceless for night fishing and my batteries last much longer than with a Motorguide. The large foot peddle is great in the dark. I recommend this motor all day.

I bought a maxxum 70# thrust motor in March 2010 and in August 2011 while trolling I hit a stump and the" Indestructible Composite Shaft
Pound for pound, stronger than steel. Flexes on impact; will not break, kink, or corrode. Guaranteed for life" broke!! Now the almost $800 motor has cost another $200 for shipping and repair of the shaft. The motor has been used very little. Did not take much of a lick to break it.
