Rated 5 out of 5 by king of the hill i have owned 10+ trolling motors in the past 20 years. i have used both minn kotas and motorguides. needless to say i will never waiste money on another motorguide. my current trolling motor is almost 4 years old and is a 74lb maxxum. i fisrt purchased a maxxum in 2000 and vowed i would never purchase anything else. the quietest on the market and can go through more cover than a motor guide. i believe the motor guides may be a little faster but if you want to go fast, crank up the outboard. if you fish around any kind of vegetation this is a must have. true they are pricey but once you get one, you will kick yourself in the rear for not getting one sooner. all of my friends that i have convinced to purchase one have all thanked me in the end. it really makes the day on the water more pleasureful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by customer service? i recently purchased a 65 lb all terain on sale and the motor head fell off on the second fishing trip. I had the unit 20 days. I called customer service about it and all i got from them was alot of im sorrys and they would not exchange the unit for like model or upgrade and insisted i get the unit repaired.(2 to 3 weeks turn around if there was no parts problems)lucky for me bass pro shops took the unit back for a full refund and i purchased this maxum 70lb variable speed unit. i took it for a test drive today and it works very well and im quite pleased with it.I do have concerns with the way minnkota customer service treats their customers when there is a problem and i hope this unit is defect free.I can not recomend their products to anyone because they seem to not understand or care that you cant fish for a month if the trolling motor fails.i can under stand insisting on a repair if the motor is a year or two old,but up to 6 months there should be free replacement. I wonder if they would have been as cavilier in there attitude had i been a big dollar pro fisherman and not a small time club tournament fisherman? July 25, 2007
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bad armature assemblies I ordered the 80-pound, foot control, freshwater bow mount with my new 18-foot bass boat in November 2006. The good: I frequently fish thick grass (hydrilla and saw grass) and it chews threw cover with little difficultly. When fishing stump fields, the mount does an excellent job of breaking away to protect the shaft. Despite long days on the water, battery life is never an issue. The bad: Two months after I bought the motor it started working intermittently, and then only on 50-percent or more power. I took it to my local Minn Kota service center, who diagnosed it with a bad armature assembly. Unfortunately, this wasn’t an isolated problem and the armature assembly was backordered. I checked with a trolling motor repairman I know in another part of the state and found out that Minn Kota had been having a high number of failures with this armature assembly. The bad continued: The part came in after a six weeks and the motor was repaired. Although my experience with the service center was a good one, I remained frustrated at waiting for so long for the part. I sent an e-mail to Minn Kota, hoping that they’d at least extend the warranty for the time I couldn’t use the trolling motor, but all I could muster from Minn Kota was an apology. In summary: Other than my experience with the armature assembly, it has been a good trolling motor. However, I would have expected Minn Kota to take a more active approach in addressing what was clearly a known issue—at least to Minn Kota service centers—with the armature assemblies. Minn Kota makes a good motor, but I think my next trolling motor will be a MotorGuide. July 6, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by on the lake all the time I have my own lake - shallow and with a lot of grass. I have gotten myself stuck in the grass and in shallower water than I should have been in many times. I have ALWAYS been able to get out by simply giving the trolling motor full power and using the my brain a little. The Minn Kotas (I have 2 now) are very strong and weedless. Minn Kota is the best brand I have ever used. December 1, 2006

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

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.
