Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NO MORE 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. August 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Deal Great trolling motor for the money. I would recommend this trolling motor to anyone. August 10, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2nd Time was the charm Bought a MAXXUM 80/SC/HAND from BPS in O-Town. Got in on the special that included free installation. 1st day on the lake it operated perfectly for the first hour then started making a loud humming/buzzing noise. I called BPS and the store manager took care of everything...he ordered me a new one and they installed it again for free. The new one is fine. At higher speeds it is louder then I anticipated it would be but it is quiet at normal trolling speeds. Cuts through weeds very well. Thanks to BPS for being a class act as always! July 21, 2011

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.

A: 
not my models, they are not like the Motor Guide units that have a gate on the front for easy removal.

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

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.
