      Lift-Assist

      Lift-Assist’s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of Fortrex and Lift-Assist will gradually guide it into the water – quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is 50% easier – as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate.

    • Mono-Arm

      Mono-Arm Design

      That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines tough. The Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that’s unmatched by any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction, Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.

    • Features-Counter-Tension-Stabilizer-FW

      Counter-Tension Stabilizer

      Utilizes an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and years of silent operation.

      Fortrex Foot Pedal

      Stay wired to the water with our ultra-responsive cable-steer foot pedal.  Its easy to operate, ergonomic design provides exact speed control and precision heel-toe steering.  5 foot cable.

    • Digital-Maximizer

      Digital Maximizer™

      Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy.  These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.

    • US2-cut-away

      Universal Sonar 2

      Integrated, protected transducer provides interference-free sonar performance, water temperature sensing, and dual beam technology (200kHz/83kHz) for an expanded view and greater bottom detail.

      US2-DualBeam-illustrationDUAL BEAM TECHNOLOGY: The view you get is unlike any other, thanks to dual beam technology.* It scans the water using both 20° and 60° angles to give you an expanded view and better bottom detail. Also features advanced temperature sensing.
    • 112lb

      112 lbs. of Thrust

      Stronger than ever, only a Minn Kota is available with 112 pounds of thrust.  Take to the water with improved control on the most powerful trolling motor so you can tackle heavy chop, wind, waves and more without so much as flinching. 

    • Weedless-Wedge-2

      Weedless Wedge 2 Prop

    • Adv-MK

      Advantage Minn Kota

      Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why we’re confident enough to guarantee it for life.  If we could guarantee it for longer than a lifetime, we would. 

      Cool, Quiet, Power:Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming. 

      2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
