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 55 lbs of thrust and a 48" shaft.

Amazon.com

The evolution of power leaps forward with Minn Kota's newly re-engineered PowerDrive V2 Series of trolling motors. The most tried and trusted electric steer motor is now enhanced with intuitive, ergonomically-designed features that deliver more performance than ever. The PowerDrive V2 series also offers a redesigned foot pedal, new deploy-assist lever, and digital electronics enhancements.

Key Features of the PowerDrive V2 Series:



    Minn Kota's Digital Maximizer technology supports up to five times longer run time on a single charge.
  • Deploy Assist Lever: Features a new deploy-assist lever that puts you in motion and in pursuit of fish quickly and easily. Simply depress the lever to deploy the motor and you’re ready to go. When it’s time to move, it stows easily and securely--ready for action again as soon as you are.
  • Ergonomic Foot Pedal: Offers precise speed adjustment, right/left steering, and both momentary and constant On/Off. Features the industry’s highest IP68 waterproof rating and 18' cord. Optional wireless foot pedal available.
  • AutoPilot: Spend less time steering your boat and more time catching fish. Simply put, AutoPilot keeps your pursuit of trophy fish headed in the right direction.
  • CoPilot Compatible: The wireless CoPilot remote control accessory (available separately) lets you control speed and steering from anywhere on the boat. With CoPilot you get every fish-fighting advantage and a clean, uncluttered deck while eliminating the fatigue of being "locked" to the foot pedal.
  • Digital Maximizer: Up to five times longer run time on a single charge. Conventional speed coil technology wastes energy by delivering a constant, steady flow of power to the motor--regardless of the speed setting--resulting in wasted energy. Pioneered in 1985, Minn Kota’s innovative Maximizer technology delivers the precise amount of power needed at any setting, along with variable speed control. Now, the advanced, digital microprocessing optimizes draw to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. Get up to five times longer run time on a single charge.
  • Indestructible Composite Shaft: The standard of the industry since 1991! Pound for pound, the ultra high-yield composite material has been tested to be three times the strength of steel. Virtually indestructible, it flexes on impact and then returns to its original position. Unlike steel, will not kink, break, rust, or corrode.
  • Cool, Quiet Power: Extra-large windings and commutators are used to dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power and longer motor life. A unique bearing system produces low rpms/high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise.

Manufacturer's Warranty
All PowerDrive V2 bow-mount trolling motors feature Minn Kota's two-year warranty.

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.

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.

I did a lot of research before I bought this trolling motor. I saved $80.00 on shipping and tax by getting it here on Amazon.
Took it out to the lake last weekend for first time since buying it and installing it 2 months ago. I put it on a 17' crestliner "fish n ski" deep v that weighs 2050 lbs. withought gas. I was told by a lot of people to get the 54", but i resisted and did the math and got the 48' shaft. it is the perfect length.
The installation was easy. The motor performed well even with 20 mph head winds. Although i like the old school foot pedals better. I was able to turn the pedal sideways and push up for left and push back for right.
The long cord is a major plus cause it was way cold and i could get behind the windshield, instead of up on the deck in the freezing cold.
Best buy for a trolling motor for $500.

I have recently mounted this motor and would like to make some comments. If you plan to use a motor mounted transducer for your bow fish finder--Forget it!! The shaft of this unit slides up in an enclosed sleeve that makes it impossible to secure the transducer wire, therefore it is always hanging loose and tangleing. If you want to use a bow fishfinder bite the bullet and go for the internal mounted transducer model. Also if you are going to cover your boat better get the quick disconnect mount as this motor sticks way out in front of the bow and covers won't fit. The electric turning motor is pretty slow. There is no lighted directional marking on the top of the unit for night fishing. These are the reasons I rated it at a three.

I used this trolling motor to move an 18' pontoon boat. It does an excellent job for me. I've used it in high winds, and it performs well. I highly recommend it.

Arrived with broken pedal, but like almost all of my customer service issues with Amazon. They fixed the problem and then some! Works great. This is my first trolling motor so I don't have anything to compare it to. I have a 2009 Polar Kraft 179tc deep-V hull boat. Easily moves us around. Only used 3 times at this point. Bought the wireless co-pilot system as well. I do recommend that.

Bought this to replace the standard cable turn style. I added the co-pilot so can control it from anywhere on the boat with a key fob. I use this on a 17.5 foot aluminum hull bass boat, and it will push it around with no problem wind or waves. Will last about 8 hours on a full charge depending on how often you fire it up.

My biggest reason for writing a review is I mounted it wrong. I didn't use washers underneath the bottom side. The other day I was cooking across the lake and the boats bouncing shook the nuts right through the aluminum plate and this thing jumped out of the boat. I had a diver go down to retrieve it being it was in 30 feet of water. Opened it up and poured out the water from the tube and all . Let it air dry and wouldn't you know it still runs like a champ. I was not looking forward to paying another chunk of change to replace it and the co-pilot and the transducer, very happy with this. Would have no problems running in a sprinkle or a downpour.

Not a bad trolling motor-be sure to mount it in the CENTER of the front of the boat-we have an old bass boat that had a foot controlled trolling motor that mounted on the front of the boat, but off to the side. We mounted the new one in the same spot as the one we took off, but the boat tends to want to track sideways a little. We plan on moving it to the center as soon as my husband's health returns. Plenty of power, even when it's windy. We would purchase this motor again.

I love this trolling motor, it was easy to install and very easy to operate it. once you point it in the direction you want to go, it stays there all you have to do is hit the power.I had a motorguide but didnt like the stiff cable and it always got in the way to operate or stow it.with the minn kota I dont have that problem

This motor has the expected power, smooth delivery, and works very well when coupled with the copilot feature. However, the motor is very cumbersome while stowing and unstowing on the water. The unit requires you to forcefully unhook it, then lug the motor over it's resting area and into the water. This takes a large amount of effort, and requires a substantial reach over the bow in order to accomplish the task. Likewise when stowing the motor you must pull the motor up and then force it over it's resting area as you stow it.
