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. These fishing trolling motors are quiet for your enjoyment. A digital variable speed control minimizes amp draw and maximizes fishing time. 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.
