Fortrex 80/45 Trolling Motor, MFG# 1368660, 24V, 80 lb. thrust, 45" composite shaft, variable speed, lift-assist bow mount, foot control, digital maximizer, weedless prop, directional indicator.
Sometimes, the simplest solution is best. In this case, it's a revolution. Fortrex's innovative Mono-Arm Design features an extruded, anodized aluminum, structural beam that operates with no metal-to-metal contact and 75% less torsion. A single hinge point and rear pivot bearing with 20% more surface area deliver less wear, longer life, and quieter operation than traditional motor mounts.
Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS) uses an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor's stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and silent operation.
Fortrex's patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate. It features a stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring to get you in and out of the water with ease.
Lifting the motor and bowguard off of the mount is now even easier on Fortrex just remove a single cap screw. The patented Removable Bowguard 360Â° also features a dual bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved breakaways from any angle.
The easy-to-read, illuminated directional indicator leaves no doubt about where you're headed.
Get wired to the water with the ultra-responsive foot pedal. Its new design is easier to operate, with more room for your foot and more exact speed control.
Pound for pound, the composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink or corrode. That's why Minn Kota is confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft that's guaranteed for life.
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. The extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And the unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they'll never hear you coming.
