warning,warning ,warning

Date:November 2, 2009
i had moterguide for over 30 yrs,then i bought the edge,after 3 months,all the speeds went out except 5 high ,i took it to the repair center,a few days later they called and said fishing line got between the prop and shaft ,and it caused 200.00 in damage,and its not covered under warranty,anyone who fishes has removed their prop and removed fishing line,i have many times on my moterguide ,and it never caused any damage,so i emailed barb at minn kota she said it was a fluke,and sorry about your luck,i emailed back if its a fluke why dont you pay the 200.00,you know the answer,minn kota doesnt have the protection that moterguide has,i will never buy minn kota again ill be scared to death to ever use that trolling moter,cause ever lake has got fishing line so its going to happen again,anyone looking to buy a brand new trolling moter

Minn Kota

The only bad thing about this product is the foot pedal is very hard to press to get it to go.

Great upgrade

Date:May 26, 2009
I replaced a 40 lb. thrust Power Drive to the Edge 55 lb thrust motor on my Tracker 175. I opted for cable steering due to issues with the power drive foot pedal responsiveness and reliability. I have only been on the water a few times, but I am very impressed. The motor is exceptionally quiet and handles the boat very well. It is taking a little practice to steer with the heal/toe pedal, but I already like it better. The only hitch is that Minnkota reccomends 6 guage wire and I had to uprgrade the wiring. Overall, I would recommend this motor to whoever is thinking about upgrading.

Minn Kota Edge 55# thrust

Date:March 25, 2008
I bought a Minn Kota Edge 55# thrust foot control trolling motor to put on an old 16' aluminum boat that I was fixing up. I took it out for the first time last week, and that boat will absolutely fly with that motor on it. The only complaint I have with the motor is the disparity between speeds 4 and 5. I knew this going in because I had a 65# thrust Minn Kota All-Terrain on another boat and it did the same thing. It's not a big deal to me, but could be to others. One thing I would recommend with a motor of this thrust is to invest in a decent battery (at least a 29 series).
