You might notice perfectly alive fish floating belly-up right alongside your boat. No, there's nothing wrong with them... they've simply given up the will to fight back. And who could blame them? After all, when you're running a Fortrex Motor by Minn Kota®, you've made it clear that you're not a man who messes around with second-rate gear.
With the Fortrex, you're getting all the cool, quiet power Minn Kota's famous for, plus handy features veteran sorts like you will certainly appreciate. Like the removable Bowguard 360° Mount that makes it easy to dismount the Motor when your day is done. Or the patented Lift-Assist that cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, so you save your strength for fightin' monsters. And so much more.
Both the 80- and 101-thrust models come available with or without built-in Universal Sonar, in your choice of 45", 52" or 62" shaft lengths to suit your boat. All are variable speed. Take a look below for all the info on this top-tier Troller, and find the size combination that works best for you!
Take a look at all this:
Indestructible Composite Shaft: Guaranteed by Minn Kota for life! Pound for pound, it's stronger than steel. Shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.
Cable-steer Foot Pedal: Get wired to the water's edge with the Edge foot pedal! Features ultra-responsive steering and an ergonomic design, with more room for your foot and more precise speed control.
Removable Bowguard 360° Mount: Dismounting the Motor is now easier than ever... just remove a single cap screw! Patented Bowguard 360° also features a dual-bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved break-away at any angle.
Mono-Arm Mount Arm: Fortrex's innovative Mono-Arm design features a super-strong anodized aluminum beam... the result is 75% less torsion. The result? Less wear, longer life, and quieter operation.
Lift-Assist: Fortrex's patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your truck's tailgate. Features a corrosion-resistant, nitrogen gas-charged spring.
Directional Indicator: Easy-to-read, illuminated Indicator leaves no doubt about where you're headed, so you can pay attention to fishing, not your motor.
Optional Universal Sonar 2: Step up to the streamlined, fully-protected Sonar design! The transducer and wiring are completely concealed and protected from the elements, while shielded connectors virtually eliminate interference. Utilizes dual-beam technology for the most complete picture around. Fully compatible with your favorite fishfinder (you may need an adapter, not included). Universal Sonar 2 is available on Stock Nos. 180839 and 180989.
