Don't Buy! In April, 2009, I purchased my first 45 lb. Motorguide Varimax trolling motor. First time out, motor would not turn off. Second time out, totally failed. Motorguide acknowledged a problem in the digital components and replaced motor with a new one. First time out, totally failed again. Motorguide replaced with 50 lb. thrust - Great White salt water trolling motor. First time in salt water, seals in head leaked and had to replace head. Also, bad switch and water leaking through handle into top head causing total shut down. I do not recommend any Motorguide product. I have since bought a Minnkota and have had no problems.

WORST PURCHASE EVER I purchased this 24V trolling motor early this spring(3-19-12) First motor had bad vibration, Second(4-15-12) motor had bad vibration and when i opened the box i extended the handle and it pulled off in my hand, Third motor(7-14-12) had a chipped prop, bad vibration, handle pulled off in my hand, loud noise started coming from it, the powerhead didn't line up with the lower unit and set screw wouldn,t hold it! Ruined my whole year of fishing so far with this poorley made motor! I'm 38 and have been fishing with, buying and using MotorGuide my whole life. LAST MOTORGUIDE I'LL EVER BUY!!! Dont waste ur time! BassProShops made it as easy as it could go. They didn't make the Motor July 15, 2012
Junk I just bought the 45 lb MotorGuide Varimax trolling motor today. I never got to try it out. Following the instructions to install the prop, I tried to rotate the motor until the pin hole was horizontal. The shaft would not rotate in either direction. I put the pin in and managed to get the prop on. The motor will not move in the reverse direction at all, and when I apply considerable force in the forward direction, it barely budges, while making crunching metallic noises. This thing is either VERY defective, or it has been previously used in salt water. Needless to say, I'm extremely ticked off. I'm bringing it back tomorrow. I don't think I'll be walking out with another one of these. June 17, 2014
Horrible product I have used mine for two or three fishing seasons. It has not broken down. I have used Motorguide for thirty years. This is the only one I have had problems with. Same complain, sometimes it doesn't turn off, or turns on, with the throttle in the "Off" position. Will drain your battery if you aren't around to unhook the power cables. Also, the motor cuts out completely (instead of just slowing down) if the battery gets lows. The motor also seems to run the battery down quicker . I put it on a loaner boat and I will be replacing it with a Minn-Kota that has great reviews. I wish Bass Pro Shops would start removing bad products from their inventory and start pressuring the manufacturers. August 24, 2013

I would recommend it. Just get the breaker from the Service Center. They only cost $9-10 compare to the big bulky one on the display that cost a lot.

I've reset my breaker many time. Better to be safer than sorry.
