Product Description

Product Description

The Traxxis is the most advanced transom mount motor we've ever put on a boat. The new Tilt/Extend Tiller handle is extremely easy and comfortable to use. It will extend up to 6" and tilt up to 45 degrees. The Quick-Lock depth adjuster quickly and easily locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it. Combine this with one-hand stowing, new steering tension control and a weedless wedge 2 prop, and you will be on the water all day, hassle free. This motor utilizes a 12 volt system to give you 55lbs of thrust at the end of a 36" shaft.

Amazon.com

The Minn Kota Traxxis was engineered to keep you in the game, no matter where the game takes you. Its remarkably simple, one-hand stow mechanism gets the motor in and out of the water in no time. Just pull up and forward to stow. When it's time to fish, use the easy-access thumb release to deploy Traxxis into any one of ten different positions.

The innovative collar above the Traxxis mount allows you to adjust steering tension to your desired level. You can keep it loose for effortless steering or tighten it down to keep Traxxis in place, allowing for true vertical stowing. The ergonomically contoured tilt/extend tiller handle can both tilt (up to 45 degrees) and extend (up to 6 inches) to fit any style of fishing, and it tilts downward for easy storage. A convenient digital battery indicator is located right on the motor head.

This model features 55 pounds of thrust and a 36-inch shaft. It's backed by a two-year limited warranty.

Quick-Lock Cam Depth Adjuster

Change depths simply and securely with Traxxis' Quick-Lock cam adjuster. It makes depth adjustment simple and locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it.

Push-to-Test Battery Gauge

Digital Maximizer

Minn Kota's Digital Maximizer controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You'll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge.

Size: 36-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer Verified Purchase
The Maximizer does what it's supposed to. I put the 55lb model on a 113 lb cargo canoe with 2 people and gear using a 105ah combo deep cycle/starting battery. I ran it continuously up river 5 miles against a 1.5 mph current for just under 2 hours at 50% of max speed and returned back down river in a little over 1 hour at 50% of max. The battery still maintained a 50% charge.

I then mounted it on a 70lb kayak with the same 2 people and gear using a very small 32ah deep cycle motor home battery and traveled up the same river at 30% of max for just under 1 hour and and returned for a total of 1.5 hours. The battery was down to 25% remaining power.

Any of my previous Min Kota Motors would have drained the batteries running at half speed in approximately half the time that these ran. I'm very pleased with the motor.

Size: 36-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer Verified Purchase
Ordered this trolling motor from Amazon after bad luck with another brand. I am well pleased with this system. Good quality throughout and very powerful! I use it on a 31 series marine deep cycle battery and it lasts longer than I ever expected. I can go all day off and on with it and still power left. Now don't get me wrong, you can't keep it going all day without shutting down at times. Have to be reasonable, no electric motor so far will last that long without changing batteries The battery meter is a nice touch.

Used it once on a very windy day and after two miles of fighting wind it performed perfectly. The power of this one (55lb thrust) will surely do the job. The features are well thought out and like I said, the quality is top notch. Forward and reverse are smooth, the slide memory is easy to set and the large tension knob is right where you need it. I also ordered the handle extension by MinnKota to go along with it. Can't beat this for what it's designed for.

Amazon is the only company I try to deal with because the customer service is beyond any I've seen. Shipping was fast and the comfort of knowing if it wasn't what I expected they will stand behind the product. Thanks again Amazon for a great product!

Size: 36-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer Verified Purchase
First off, this is the newer Traxxis with the variable speed and digital maximizer, and not the Speed Coil version as someone below had stated. Compared to my 38# thrust Endura C2, this is a bit heavier, as the bottom half of the motor shroud is actually thick steel, and high quality. This motor has a few differences from previous models, so reading the manual for a list of features is recommended.

The tilt mechanism is excellent, just remember not to try tilting the handle downwards without releasing the small switch on the bottom of the motor head.

Another thing worth mentioning is that you should use a 60 amp circuit breaker with this motor (Minn Kota sells one they recommend). This motor draws 50 amps at the highest speed, and a failure at that draw could potentially cause catastrophic failure of not just your motor, but also your giant acid filled bomb they call a deep cycle battery.

This does not come with the Weedless Wedge 2 prop as indicated, so if you really wanted that you will have to purchase it separately.

Size: 42-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer
Beware! Dead after one season with repair costs over half the purchase price. Took great care to remove line and debris. Seals leaked and not covered under warantee. I had an OMC for 18 years without seal issues.

I replaced my MinnKota Endurance 55 with this new upgraded motor and there's a big difference between the two. It keeps its' power for longer durations. I'm quite happy with the change I made.

Size: 42-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer Verified Purchase
I bought this in may and one year to the day the control unit is fried i live in michigan and the motor was not used for 4 months during the winter. the replacment part costs 128$ and its a known issue according to MinnKota but they wont validate it in their 2 year warrant.
Stay away if you use this trolling motor if you use it more then 10 hours total.

The description of this motor is wrong. The SC Stands for Speed Coil and is not a maximizer motor. Go to Minn kota web site and read the differences between Speed Coil and Maximizer.

Size: 36-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer Verified Purchase
I purchased this lemon on 3/11/2015. Right out of the box the lower shaft bushing was broken. It was used maybe 6 times and now it no longer works. something in the motor has failed. I was not happy with it from the first use. It has never had any power compared to my old 40 thrust endura. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!
