Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by solid motor and easy to use. i have been using the 40sc model w/ 5 speed option for 2 months and i like it alot. it moves my canoe very fast and i have no regrets buying this one. i had the motorguide varimax and after 3 wks it would not turn off while on the water for like an hr. dont buy that one. buy the traxxis, the features are great and its reliable. i like how the motor can be stowed w/ one hand very quickly if i see a large rock or something that it might hit. all you have to do is lift the motor head up like a half inch and then pull back towards the front of the boat and it stows back and clicks to lock it up. also the collar design to tighten the steering works well and does not tighten on its own when steering like the varimax did.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Minn Kota TRAXXIS I bought this motor on Tuesday used it on Wed. and worked great. I used it on a 14 ft jon boat and pushed it great. It worked so good that I went back out on Thurs. and got two miles from ramp and quit working. I had to beat on the fin under the prop to get it going then it just quit and had to paddle in. It is NOT worth the $300 I had to pay. I was told at BassPro it was the Cadilac of motors, its more like an old Pinto. July 2, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by good motor this is a good motor,plenty of power,easy to deploy and stow and unlike the varimax it shuts off. July 2, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by No Good. This motor is no good. I have already had two get water in them within a month, After I had the second one repaired, it was broken again within three days. The fin that hangs off the bottom of the motor constantly gets bumped over to one side. When it does this the motor stops working. I have to pull the troller out of the water and bump the fin back in place (straight down). I did this so many time in one night, that now the fin (which is attached to the back half of the motor housing) is just loose. JUNK Also the mounting bracket is way too sloppy. June 16, 2009

my brother and I are planning on getting one of these for our hobie kayak. We need something to push us around faster while we spearfish. Would 50# thrust push around 300lbs fast? Fast would be 8mph +? and also how long does the battery last if you're cranking it?

Not to be funny but fast is relative. I have a 12 ft inflatable and it pushes me pretty well. your boat is slimmer and more aro dynamic so I would say yes it would push pretty well. It is a great motor and holds a charge a long time.

A: 
The max weight an 80-pound thrust trolling motor would push is 4000 pounds. 50 pound of thrust would work with a max weight limit of 2500 pounds.

Horsepower: Generally, 1 HP = 15lbs of thrust (approximately)

Was just wondering what type of deep cell battery to use with the Traxxis 55 36". Suggestions would be great.

A: 
I use a Optimpa blue top battery. They are expensive, but I can run the trolling motor all day, and still have enough juice to start the big motor.

Staff Answer
A: 
The recommended minimum thrust for a 14’ boat is 35 pounds. You will want to measure your boat when it is fully loaded with gear and people for a regular day of fishing. Measure from intended mounting location (transom or bow) to the waterline of the loaded boat. Then add 18 inches. That's the shaft length you are looking for.

Bow Mount:
• Pulls boat through the water
• Offers most maneuverability and control
• More popular for medium to large fishing boats
• Requires flat deck/area to mount
• Hands-free option

Transom Mount:
• Pushes boat through the water
• Less expensive than bow mount TM
• Popular for smaller boats, including canoes, personal pontoons, duck boats, etc.
• Easy to mount—clamps to stern

Staff Answer
A: 
With a 12-14 foot boat length, you will want to have at least 35 pounds of thrust and see chart below for shaft length.

Shaft: Measure from the mounting surface to the waterline. For rough water conditions, add 5” to the waterline measurement. For hand-control trolling motors, add 12” to Recommended Shaft Length.

HP vs thrust?

Details: 
I have an 18 1/2' Fisher with a 120 HP motor...would the 80 lb thrust be sufficient to troll? What HP equivalent would that be?
2 years, 9 months ago

Answers

A: 
You are trying to relate two separate and unrelated concepts. First, your 120 HP motor is designed to be a primary power source. The trolling motor is only designed for slow maneuvering although it can function as primary power for small boats in light current while traveling over relatively short distances.

The conversion between mechanical horsepower and electrical power is: 1 HP = 735 Watts.

The main motor is rated in horsepower because it is designed to be run continuously if necessary. However, the trolling motor is rated in pounds of thrust because it is designed to be operated intermittently.

I think an 80 pound thrust trolling motor would do the job for you but a 55 pound thrust motor would also work. The primary difference would be the maximum speed which you could achieve.

Look at it this way. How many pounds of force do you need to use to push your boat when it is sitting in the dock? A 20 pound push will move the boat but not very far or very fast. A 50 pound push will really get it going but to keep it going, you need to keep pushing. This is the thrust effect of the electric motor. The 80 pound motor should give you excellent results.

I have a 16' Lund with a 50 HP outboard and a 55 pound MinnKota Terrova. With this setup, the trolling motor has power to spare, even in strong current.

A: 
One horsepower is approximately equal to 15 pounds of thrust, so if you take the amount of thrust divided by 15, you should be able to determine the approximate horsepower.

18 foot Jon boat

Details: 
I am getting an 18 foot Jon boat and the trolling motor will be the only power source. Boat weight is 475 lbs, max weight capacity is 1,375 lbs, beam is 75 inches. Would a 55 lb 12 volt Traxxix transom mount be enough? Also what size battery would be needed?

Answers

A: 
I use the 55lb 12 volt Traxxix on a Tracker ProGuide V16 (approximatley 2200 lbs with the 60 horse Merc) It pushes this boat just fine for trolling and slow movements. If it's your only motor, and you need to cover a lot of real estate, you might want to step up to a higher thrust, but you would also need a 24volt system.

sure. a 29m battery would last longer than a 27m or 24m. bigger the number the more plates it has which makes it bigger and last longer.
