Item Description

The MotorGuide Trolling Motors, Freshwater VariMAX Edition (Hand/Pontoon Mount 55 lb. 50" Shaft) lets you fish longer and fish exactly at the speed you want.

The extending Tri-Lobe soft-touch handle offers perfect feel and control. The motor on these freshwater trolling motors will allow you to fish 3.5 time longer than you would on a 5-speed motor. This is all thanks to unique features including a peak thrust of 55 lbs, 12 volts of power and a 1.25” aluminum shaft for greater strength and durability. These MotorGuide Trolling Motors also have a Machete III propeller and a one-touch rapid-slide depth adjustment collar.

Rated 1 out of 5★ by 3 different motors within 2 weeks I purchased this to replace an old motorguide I had. The 1st one went bad and stopped running within 10 minutes of being out on the lake so I ordered a new one. the 2nd one didn't even make it to the water and quit working. I figured what are the odds of 3 bad motors in a row so I orders a new one. The 3rd one didn't even make it out of the box completely. I hooked it up to the battery and got power to the head unit but the prop wouldn't spin. I called motorguide and they stated this is a huge problem they are having and this particular model isn't the best product they have produced.Needless to say I returned it and bought completely different make. Save yourself the hassle and stay away from this until they get the bugs worked out. 03/17/2014
