How to determine the appropriate shaft length, thrust level and voltage for your boat


  • Lift Assist:  Lift-Assist’s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of Fortrex and Lift-Assist will gradually guide it into the water – quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is 50% easier – as easy as lifting your truck's tailgate.

  • Mono Arm Design:  That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines tough. The Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that’s unmatched by any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction, Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.

Fortrex Mono Arm

  • Counter Tension Stabilizer:  Utilizes an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and years of silent operation.

  • Fortrex Foot Pedal:  Stay wired to the water with our ultra-responsive cable-steer foot pedal.  Its easy to operate, ergonomic design provides exact speed control and precision heel-toe steering.  5 foot cable.

Fortrex Foot Pedal

  • Removable Bowguard 360º:  The Bowguard 360°™ breaks away on impact from any direction and automatically resets itself - protecting your motor and your boat, so you can fish without worry. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise, and it's easily removable.

  • Digital Maximizer:  Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy.  These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.

  • Illuminated Directional Indicator:  Illuminated directional indicator tells you right where you’re headed - in any conditions.  Available on Foot Control models.

  • Built-In Dual Spectrum Chirp Sonar:  Keeps your transducer and wiring completely concealed and protected running everything through the trolling motor's shaft. By covering a wide range of frequencies, Humminbird®'s CHIRP produces more accurate, more detailed returns of fish, structure and the bottom than traditional sonar.

Universal Sonar 2

  • Weedless Wedge 2 Prop:  Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge™ 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.

  • Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why we’re confident enough to guarantee it for life.  If we could guarantee it for longer than a lifetime, we would. 
  • Cool, Quiet, Power:Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming. 
  • 2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
