I chose this over Motorguide & am very pleased. Quiet,powerful & has the continuous on switch which Motorguide doesn't. Love the secure store feature & composite shaft guranteed for life.
A great trolling motor,$30 lower in price than any other retailer & ONLY .97 cents shipping which saved me another $20.
You just can't beat Wal-Mart!
This is a good discount trolling motor. It was a replacement to an old mororguide that was falling apart.. Doesn't seem to have the same thrust as the 44 motorguide, but it moves the boat around.. The downfall is the indicator dosn't light up for ease of use at night and it stopped working the second time on the water. I was able to have it replaced under warrenty. Overall decent motor for the price. I wish I would have paid the extra money and got the 55#..
I bought this because the boat I bought didn't have one and I knew I was going to have to build a mount and figure a way to make it work. The mount is now installed and so is the trolling motor. Took it out this morning for a test run. The Minn Kota worked excellently. Quiet yet strong and responsive. I wish I had a photo to show but don't have one yet. The photo I have shows where I had to build a mount for the motor to install. Not like the normal bass boat. It operated great without having to make a lot of changes in the boat itself. It has enough weight to be positive in its movements. I really, really like this unit.
For the money there is nothing better on the market. Good for my little 16ft lowe with 25 hpr johnson. If I had a bigger boat I would definitely bump up to the 50lbs thrust. Design flaw is that at its shallowest depth setting, it can not be retracted from the water to the mount. Caught me off gaurd while trying to load up the first time. Damaged the little pop-up cradle (made of plastic) and then it would not retract all the way after I dropped the motor down. Had to reach down and cut off the damaged piece with a pocket knife to get the trolling motor in the boat. Could not drop because floating over the trailer at this point. During this fiasco, boat floats around and taps a rock. Damage is minor but still ticks me off. The design should allow for retraction at any dept setting.
This is an excellent motor for the money. Very easy to install. I have an 18' Procraft Bass Boat and this moves it around with no problem at all. Save yourself the time, I checked around with about 10 different dealers and Walmart has the best price on this motor hands down!!
I haven't had it long, but the Edge seems well-made and tough. The foot-operated controller is very easy to operate compared to my 20-year-old Minn Kota. If you are looking for a no-frills bow-mounted trolling motor, I would definitely recommend giving this one a look.
Motor was an exact replacement for my boat and does a good job. Beware tho, the pictured prop is not the prop you get. And when you call about it, it is not even available for this model motor so Walmart needs to change the picture to not show a power prop.
I bought this motor to replace a old one, the mounting went fine about a half hour the power is better too and the price was great the only difference I could find is the shaft length Wal-Mart's is 42 inch. all others I viewed were 45, might make a difference on some boats. Rated for boats up to 18 feet ...
I use this in a lake, if you have current you probably need something a little bigger. But still good for the money
Easy to install, replaced an older Motorguide. Has plenty of power for my 16 foot Express. Only complaint, it didn't come with the weedless propeller shown. Seems to be a good value.
I bought this to replace the ugly one I had on my 1977 Cobra Phantom after I restored it. This unit works great, is VERY quiet except on speed 5 where there is a slight hum but that is to be expected. Has two mounting patterns that allow you to mount this new unit where an older Minn Kota unit that used the small pattern was mounted.
Good product for the money spent on it...cheaper than the large outdoor retailers prices...wish the cord to connect from the foot pedal to battery was longer though.oh well
The only thing that is of concern to me now that I purchased the "Edge" is the size of the footpedal. On a previous Minnkota I owned it had a smaller footpedal and the turns to the right and left were automatic, not cable. Despite that difference I still am glad I purchased this unit and would recommend to any fisherman to purchase it. I also wanted to purchase a 55 pound thrust initially but could not afford that particular model at the time. No worries though; the 45 pound thrust Edge is doing a fantastic job and I am very happy with the speed and happy I got this model! It moves my 15' Lowe with console and 40 horse merc just fine. Definitely would recommend.
We are very pleased with our new trolling motor. It is a great value for the price. We ordered late on a Friday evening and received it on the following Tuesday, even with standard shipping rates.
MY EDGE TROLLING MOTOR 45-42 LOOKS GREAT, WAS EASY TO INSTALL..ID RATE IT A 9 ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10----------FOOTPAD WORKS GREAT---THIS TROLLING MOTOR VERY QUIET, VERY WELL ENGINEERED!D
This trolling motor is great. I would highly recommend it.
Trolling motor works really well on my Lund 1625 Fury XL. Foot control is real tight straight out the box, had to adjust and everything was fine after that. Took out on lake was windy and it moved the boat pretty good with boat being full with 3 adults and 2 children and full cooler.
I have been using this trolling motor in some very weedy waters and it has been doing well. Going to try a different prop to see if it will help to pull my boat better in clean water. But over all out of the box ready to mount on your boat and GO FISH!!! 1 down side it does not come with a rubber backing plate for the mounting carriage. Makes your motor strap almost useless.
Moves my 16 Lund fine
I haven't been able to use my new minnkota trolling motor yet, however, it was very user friendly to install and looks great on my boat. I'm excited to try it out as I had a 35 lb minnkota originally. Thank you for the great price and even better service Walmart!
