MINN KOTA Fortrex Freshwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motor with MEGA Down Imaging
Toughest, most durable bow-mount trolling motor to date! The Fortrex combines unparalleled ruggedness with precision engineering to give anglers a motor that will perform in the most extreme conditions, day after day, year after year.
Built-In MEGA Down Imaging™: With a transducer built right into the motor, you get crystal clear Humminbird® MEGA Down Imaging and a clean protected look.
Mono-Arm Design: That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines tough. Fortrex’s Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that’s unmatched by any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction, Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.
Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS): CTS uses an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and silent operation.
Lift-Assist: Fortrex’s patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate. It features a stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring to get you in and out of the water with ease.
Removable Bowguard 360º Mount: Lifting the motor and bowguard off of the mount is now even easier on Fortrex – just remove a single cap screw. The patented Removable Bowguard 360º™ mount also features a dual bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved breakaways from any angle.
Illuminated Directional Indicator: The easy-to-read, illuminated directional indicator leaves no doubt about where you’re headed.
Foot Pedal: Get wired to the water with the ultra-responsive foot pedal. Its new design is easier to operate, with more room for your foot and more exact speed control.
Tilt-Extend Tiller: Get a better handle on navigation with the Tilt/Extend Tiller on the hand control models. This innovative handle both tilts (up to 45º) and extends (up to 6”) to give you maximum control.
Digital Maximizer™ controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You’ll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop: Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking and features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Indestructible Composite Shaft: Guaranteed For Life! - Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why we’re confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft that’s guaranteed for life.
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And their unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming.
