Product Description

Product Description

A redesigned foot pedal, new deploy-assist lever and digital electronics enhance one of the most trusted motors in the industry. This motor features 50lbs of thrust and a 48" shaft.

Amazon.com

The PowerDrive V2 trolling motor from Minn Kota marks an evolutionary leap forward for the company. The original PowerDrive was one of the company's most popular trolling motors ever, but the PowerDrive 2 takes things to the next level with such features as an improved deploy mechanism, a new ergonomically designed foot pedal, and digital electronics. This PowerDrive V2 motor offers 50 pounds of thrust and a 48-inch shaft.



The PowerDrive V2 trolling motor runs smoothly and quietly on the water.

The PowerDrive V2 is equipped with a deploy-assist lever that keeps the motor securely stowed during rough water runs and while trailering, but that also unlocks quickly when you need to deploy the motor. As a result, you can drop in and pursue fish at a moment's notice. The side-to-side steering foot pedal, meanwhile, includes a momentary/constant on switch, a speed control knob for precise adjustments, and an 18-inch cord with waterproof connector plugs.

The PowerDrive V2 comes standard with Minn Kota's Digital Maximizer technology, which helps the battery run up to five times longer on a single charge, along with an indestructible composite shaft (guaranteed for life) and a push-to-test battery meter.

The motor offers extra-large windings and commutators that dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and a longer motor life. Minn Kota even added a unique bearing system with reduced friction to cut fish-spooking noise.

It's compatible with Minn Kota's optional AutoPilot accessory, which locks onto any heading you choose and delivers you there. Just point the motor head in the direction you want to travel and let the AutoPilot take over. You can also upgrade the PowerDrive V2 with the optional i-Pilot wireless trolling system accessory, which uses GPS technology to control and steer your boat for you. At the push of a button, i-Pilot lets you stay on a fishing spot, store and retrace productive trolling paths, or take full command of speed and steering.

About Minn Kota

Minn Kota is the oldest manufacturer of electric fishing motors in the world with nearly 70 years of hard-earned experience in the lab and on the water. Throughout their history, Minn Kota has led the way in product innovation and cutting-edge technology. The Minn Kota electric trolling motor began its life in 1934 in Fargo, North Dakota. Mr. O. G. Schmidt, inventor of the trolling motor, was known to be a man of many diverse ideas. Prior to the trolling motor, Mr. Schmidt invented, produced and sold a copper soldering torch from his home in Wheatland, North Dakota. Due to its success, manufacturing operations were then moved to Fargo. Because of its proximity to the MINNesota-North DaKOTA border, Mr. Schmidt named the business The Minn Kota Manufacturing Company.

This could prove to be the best trolling motor I've ever owned but installing it was a major nightmare. I was replacing an older model Minn Kota (AT-40) and was hoping to use the same mounting holes in the bow deck of my Alumacraft 145 Fisherman. Well the holes never came close so I had to drill more holes in the deck. Part of the V2 50s mount has to hang over the edge of the bow in order for the motor shaft to clear when it pivots out and down. This was not explained in the USELESS installation pamphlet and if I hadn't tried a down motor pre-fit I'd have had to drill a lot of un-needed and damaging holes. With his type motor the shaft has to slide up and down with ever use making a motor mounted sonar unit very tricky. I won't know if my installation will work till I get it in the water. I have great faith in Minn Kota motors or I wouldn't have bought my fourth one (over 35 years not one failed ever), but with such a complicated unit as this you'd have expected much better detailed instructions even a DVD. Minn Kota dropped the ball here and I'm telling everyone. I'll update this review once I've had it out on the lake a couple times.

Worst I ever owned. The foot controller is nothing but a pc board that will not hold up. I have owned the motor about five years and have just replaced the foot controller for the forth time for about $75.00 bucks each. I have tried to contact Minn Kota about the problem but have gotten no response. If you doubt what I am saying look at the foot controller (MinnKota Powerdrive V2 Corded Foot Pedal Accessory (Black)) and read the reviews. You will be better off staying away from this.

I am very pleased had a little trouble with the wiring it turned out to be the boat. It is a 15' King Fisher 1970 model fiberglass boat. The old trolling motor was the original one that came with the boat and the difference in how this new trolling motor pulls the boat is outstanding.
Thank you very much for the Amazon price it was about $150 dollars cheaper than anywhere I looked on line and local.

My husband hesitated to buy such a large and costly item from Amazon.....but we soon found out the price was the lowest and how could you beat free delivery of this right to your door. He's also very satisfied with the performance of this motor.
