From the back coves to the open water, the MotorGuide Freshwater Series trolling motor has you covered for the long haul. The FW46 FB model is a five-speed motor with 12 volts of power and 46 pounds of thrust, based on a 42-inch aluminum shaft construction. With renowned MotorGuide durability, the motor features foot- or hand-operated rack and pinion steering that's been in the MotorGuide line for more than 20 years, and is a simple and straightforward design known for its long-lasting durability. Go shallower, faster, and quieter with an all-new tapered hub and three-blade weed-free Machete III prop designed by Mercury propellers.



Featuring a smooth, quiet, and powerful 46-pounds of thrust and simple hand-operated bow mount, the FW46 FB makes it easier to bring home the big one.

The MicroSwitch is designed to withstand the grueling demands of harsh, wet tournament conditions. Also includes a lighted directional indicator for night fishing and a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

The unit is affixed to the boat via a Gator Flex 360 breakaway bow-mount with automatic reset, and its exclusive isolator design acts as a built-in shock absorber. The one-hand-operated bow mount is simple to operate and features a solid 21 Gator Spring Mount and extended twister-tiller handle, while its high-impact rubber construction is designed to flex in all directions to protect the motor lower unit and shaft from underwater obstructions. The Gator Flex 360 is ideal for lightweight aluminum rigs and shallow water fishing, and one-hand stow/deploy operation is fast and easy. This system has been refined over the last two years and continues to be MotorGuide's No. 1 selling foot-control series.

  • Proprietary Mercury Marine-Grade XK360 die-cast aluminum is a MotorGuide exclusive, and offers unmatched strength, lightweight performance

I purchased the Motorguide trolling motor from Amazon. It shipped quickly and was relatively easy to install on an aluminum V-bottom. The motor is quiet and operates smoothly. There is plenty of speed on high to get across the lake quickly without having to fire up the gas motor and the low speed is just about perfect for slow-rolling the banks. It raises and lowers easily and the steering is intuitive once you get used to it. Seems very sturdy. After having it and using it regularly the last two months I have chunked into quite a few submerged stumps, powered through thick weeds, and even stuck it in the mud when going through some very murky water in a shallow bay (duh right?). It is none the worse for wear and the shaft has not bent.

cons: Since my bow does not sit perfectly level with the water (unlike a bass boat) when I let my foot off of the steering the motor will turn. This is true whether I the motor is running or not. Not a huge deal, just something to get used to.

Conclusion: Inexpensive, good power and control, quiet operation, direction sensor, easy to install and rugged. Its a winner.

i had a minn kota that went out on me after one week of use so i decided to go with this motor guide and put it on my 14ft jon boat. i have a marine deep cycle 185 battery from bass pro shops and this trolling motor works like a champ. i just got back from my vacation in Wisconsin and it burns right through the heavy weeds. only down fall is the foot pedal. it took about 2 days for me to get used to. also the cable is very bulky if you are picky on anything. overall this is a great product and im very happy

Couldn't ask for a better motor. As powerful as can be. Well balanced, making putting into water and taking out of water almost effortless.
