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 crazygunsmith 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?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dave from Melbourne, FL 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scobbott 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.
