Designed to have the longest run time of any motor in its class and the advantage of a precise variable-speed adjustment, MotorGuide's VariMax™ Hand Control Bow Mount Trolling Motors give you the freedom to fish all day with unmatched control of your boat—with the Digital guts to get it done, day in and day out. You’ll get up to 3.5X the battery life over 5-speed motors. And never have to settle for a little too fast or a bit too slow. Dial it way down and whisper through the shallows, or crank it up and cut through the wind with less amp draw than ever before. Fish longer, fish at exactly the speed you want, and fish more silently. And do it with the extreme durability of Digital.
- Digital variable speed control minimizes amp draw and maximizes fishing time
- Large diameter 1.25'' shaft for greater strength and durability
- Powerful 3.5'' diameter VariMAX™ Digital Motors run cooler and last longer
- Revolutionary push/pull, forward/reverse speed adjustments
- BluVis™ integrated speed and battery indicator
- Taper-Lock™ mount with 7-point adjustment eliminates slack
- One-touch, rapid-slide depth-adjustment collar
- Extending tri-lobe soft-touch handle
- Easy to adjust with a simple allen wrench, the VariMAX’s head can be repositioned for placement on the bow, transom, or even the side of your boat

Varimax motors are all useless. I had to have my first one repaired twice. Next time they replaced it under warranty, and that one tore up first time out! Certified service tech told me they,re all that way. Other Motorguides are great but they sure struck out with this one...

SamF and NCBASS described this malfunctioning piece of junk (VARIMAX 55/12 Bow Mount) perfectly. I fought with this motor from March to June, each time out it ruined my fishing trip. I went through two of them and each time Bass Pro Shop in Arundel Mills took it back with no questions and asked what could they do to satisfy me. Third time I went home with a Minn-Kota 55 Edge and it has worked perfectly. Had a MK for 10 years with no problems. I should have known better and stayed with them. I am thankful for all of the help and understanding I received from BPS customer service . They and MK helped bring my 2013 fishing nightmare to a happy ending. No more MotorGuide for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chobeegators1 so far so good
Can't believe the difference from the one I had. Shaft is fatter than my other so I am going to have to modify my big foot 2 handle to fit around the shaft.

I find this motor to work very well for my applicatrion. I have a 21 foot jet boat and I have Fished bass tourneys for 17 years before getting this jet boat. it works well for what I need it to do, I just have to get used to the hand control instead of a foot control model, I do not have enough room in the front of my jet boat for a foot control model.
