Product Description

Arm yourself with the ultimate weapon against saltwater. The all-new Riptide SF features fewer moving parts, tighter tolerances, advanced corrosion protection and our revolutionary new Mono Arm. You get no-nonsense power, stealth operation and rugged, reliable performance-everything you need to put the destructive effect of saltwater in its place. The new RipTide hand control gives you the best of both worlds with its new Tilt/Extend Tiller handle. It can both tilt (up to 45 degrees) and extend (up to 6") to adjust to any situation and any style of fishing. The Counter tension stabilizer in the mounting bracket uses and integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. Ont the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced torque and silent operation. This motor features 80lb of thrust from a 24 volt system and the end of a 52" shaft.

I'm using this model to replace another MINN KOTA trolling motor that is 7 years old but still works. I decided to upgrade to have the assisted cylinder lift and this does work very well. The motor is powerful and quiet, moreso than the unit it replaces. I fish only salt and brackish water and my existing Minn Koda has given me 7 years of service with zero failures (I fish often). The only thing I did not like about the new motor was that the upper cylinder tierod is not held in place by bushings and allows the upper tierod to slide easily across the upper cylinder tierod mounting bar (approximately 1/2" of side to side movement). This movement allows the cylinder to rattle especially when running in short light choppy water. This could have easily been eliminated with a delrin bushing placed on each side of the tierod to lock the upper cylinder tierod in place. I'm going to do the mod myself as this will prevent the cylinder seals from premature wear and eliminate any rattles caused by the cylinder vibrating. If it would not be for this I would have given the Riptide SF80 a five star rating. Suggest Minn Koda take the proactive approach and add either bushings on this mounting bar or redesign the upper tierod mounting bar.

Size Name: 62 - Inch Shaft
Bought a Riptide SF from Bass Pro Shop in April of 2013. Second time I took it out the plastic coupling in the handle that turns the unit off/on and controls the speed broke...its plastic!! I had to remove the handle and use my hands to steer and turn the unit on/off. Mechanism that lifts the motor up and down out of the water kept getting stuck. This was the reason I bought this model in the first place. My old one kept getting stuck. Three days into my fishing trip another plastic piece fell off. This one is located at the base of the mount and looks like it has something to do with the lifting mechanism. Again....PLASTIC!?!
Nice power and quiet, but c'mon Minn Kota! You can't charge almost $1,300 for this unit and use plastic where metal should be to save money.

This is a great motor. The unit lift sometimes sticks, and the unit is heavy - which makes the hydrolic lift nice. Has plenty of power and is very good on battery life.

Pulls a lot of current in windy situations, so make sure your wiring is free of corrosion and the proper guage.
