It has been over 75 years since Minn Kota introduced their first electric trolling motor. To say the technology has evolved since then is an understatement. The Minn Kota 55 PowerDrive V2 55-lb Freshwater Trolling Motor offers big-time strength and innovative ergonomic controls that have made this 48" shaft boat trolling motor one of the most trusted names on the water.
This is probably my 3rd or 4th Powerdrive, motor and without a doubt the very best. Improvements in power and especially in the foot pedel, make it by far the best ever!
Why so many? It's over near to 20 years since the first and the last one went thru at least 3, probably, 4 different boats!
Down side! The new foot pedel will take a bit to re-learn! While it's so much better, it IS, different, both in feel and use! Nothing is easy when you turn 77! Details, like the four rubber nubbies to keep it from sliding on my un-carpeted deck, as well as retention of the "anywhere in the boat usage as well as the improved caps at the quick disconnect cabel connection, bring it to my COMPLETE satisfaction!
