Customer Reviews for Motorguide MotorGuide VariMAX V55SW HT 36" 12V TLXMT Trolling Motor

Motorguide MotorGuide VariMAX V55SW HT 36" 12V TLXMT Trolling Motor

Our new VariMAX takes Great White's industry-leading endurance to unprecedented levels. This digital monster dominates the saltwater playing field with anodized aluminum mounts and components, oversized stainless-steel shafts, and a self-healing coating on the lower unit that serves as the ultimate shield against corrosion and abuse.

"I was deciding between Minn Kota (MK) and this and for about the same money as the MK 40lbs thrust, I purchased the 45lb MotorGuide unit. Boy what a mistake. If you run the motor for an extended period, the motor will not switch off. You have to disconnect the unit for it to shut off. Apparently this is a known issue, just google "Motorguide varimax won't shut off." Well, exactly 5 days after the 1 year warranty ran out, my unit started having this problem. I guess that wouldn't be too bad if I ran the thing all the time but mind you, I don't get a chance to get on the water too often, but I had taken this out 4 times. (That's about all I get to go out with the boat) I ran the unit in all about 2 hours at a time. What a horrible piece of junk. Go with Minn Kota, you won't be sorry."
