This thing is amazing. It chews through grass better than any lawnmower, and pulls my boat like nothing I've ever seen. It was a breeze to install, as the mounting holes matched up perfectly with the old motorguide mounting holes. My only complaint so far is that the instruction manual is lacking detailed specifications, mainly the amperage draw. I've only used it one time so far, but I have very high hopes for this Trolling Motor.

Happy with service provided
I knew before I ordered the Minnekota Maxxum Bow Mount 70 lb thrust motor that I would like it as I have fished with a friend who owns the 80 lb thrust. I only gave it a 4 rating as I have only used it 3 times to date.
The main thing I would like to review is the service I got from Bass Pro. I ordered the item by phone and was told I would receive the item in about 10 days. But three days later I had the trolling motor. This allowed me to have it mounted and on the boat for the weekend. Thank you Bass Pro for handling the shipping in an orderly fashion.

After much deliberation and reading hundreds of reviews I selected the Minkota Maxxum over aMotorguide. This Maxxum is the most powerful trolling motor I have ever used. First day out we had gusting winds for most of the day. I had no problem controlling my boat and used the trolling motor four six and a half hours with no let-down. I hit a couple of stumps quite by accident but never had an interruption. I have been extremely surprised and happy with this purchase.

Bad trolling motor
I had some bad luck with with the trolling motor, it quit working after about 15 minutes, I took it to Humble,Tex. to an authorized Minnkota repair shop, they fixed it, & the next day it quit again. I contacted Basspro, they sent me a shipping label & I sent it back for a refund. I commend Basspro, the lady I talked to was very helpfull & made it very easy to correct this problem, Thanks

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.
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...
I have 12 voit system now, I'd like to move up to a 24 system..What type of wiring to use..Is the 24 voit a 3 wire system, the 12 voit is only 2 wires. What size wire is recommended for the 24 voits..such as A #12, or #14 size wire..what size fuse to use..
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.
