Great Trolling Motor

I installed and used this trolling motor last weekend and I have been very impressed. My wife was impressed also. It seems very well built and solid. I got the 55 lb thrust pontoon one. It has plenty enough power to move my 20 foot Sweetwater pontoon. Very competitive pricing. Happy customer!

Satisfied Customer

We received our first trolling motor and had some issues but contacted the company and went through the process and they did send us a new trolling motor that is working great right now. We haven't actually got the pontoon in the water yet but the trolling motor has been tested and seems to be working correctly. Thanks for standing behind your product, that makes me want to buy from this company again knowing they stand behind their products even though it does take some time to go through the process.

Pontoon series trolling motor

I have not used the 55lb thrust pontoon motor yet. I have used the 86lb thrust pontoon motor and it’s great. They are easy to mount, with a board over the transom on back of a pontoon boat. the tiller handle is well above the playpen fence. 14x7 pontoon goes about 3mph. A little faster if I have some weight at front of boat.

Definitely gets you to where you wanna go. Not sure if it is just loud from how I have it mounted to the front of my Carolina Skiff. But so easy even my wife can navigate while I fish

Great trolling motor

I was very very impressed with the performance of this trolling motor. I have a 21ft pontoon and the 86lb thrust moved it around with ease. Only issue was we hit a stump that was underwater and bent the shaft but that was my fault and can be straightened. Very tough and love the battery meter on top! Thanks for a great product at a great price!

Pontoon 86lb trolling motor

I put the trolling motor on back of a 14 foot pontoon. The the throttle handle is well above the deck fence and works great. My neighbors are now looking for pontoon boats so they can recreat the same set up. Customer support is excellent. Good communication.

Second one is fine

First going to say great customer service. First one had a bearing noise, they sent out a replacement as soon as they could. Second one is nice and silent. Pulls our 24 foot pontoon around just fine.

86Ib Thrust

This 24 volt trolling motor is very strong!!! I used two 12 volt AGM acid batteries in series for 24 volts, I used the motor for 4 hours and it didnt even phase the battery, it dropped batteries from 25.9 volt to 24 volt. I should have gotten a shorter shaft but I can use it standing up on the front of my pontoon. You want a strong trolling motor to pull a big boat, by this one.
