Comments about Cruise 4.0 Tiller Steered Outboard, Long Shaft, 48V:
This recent addition of a tiller handle in the 4.0 is great for boats w/o a steering console. This motor pushes my reservoir rig(1400#) at just under 7 mph. I have 8-6 volt(600 pounds) batteries running this motor. This gives me run time at full throttle of around 2 hrs. These motors do have a sweet spot. Full throttle is around 3600 watts at 6.9mph. At 2400 watts Im at 6 mph with at least double run time. The only downfall is at full throttle the motor does become somewhat difficult to steer. The tiller computer is great. Very accurate on speed, battery life. Great motor.
