Motorguide MotorGuide Trolling Motors, Freshwater VariMAX Edition (Hand/Pontoon Mount 55 lb. 50" Shaft)

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.

Review 1 for MotorGuide Trolling Motors, Freshwater VariMAX Edition (Hand/Pontoon Mount 55 lb. 50" Shaft)

3 different motors within 2 weeks

I purchased this to replace an old motorguide I had. The 1st one went bad and stopped running within 10 minutes of being out on the lake so I ordered a new one. the 2nd one didn't even make it to the water and quit working. I figured what are the odds of 3 bad motors in a row so I orders a new one. The 3rd one didn't even make it out of the box completely. I hooked it up to the battery and got power to the head unit but the prop wouldn't spin. I called motorguide and they stated this is a huge problem they are having and this particular model isn't the best product they have produced.
Needless to say I returned it and bought completely different make. Save yourself the hassle and stay away from this until they get the bugs worked out.

Reason 1. If for some reason you are unhappy with product you can return to local walmart
Reason 2. using on a pontoon and the varimax is great with feature of push handle for forward and pull back for reverse, twisting the handle for speed the same direction (brilliant)
