Fishing - Minn Kota® Introduces More Power for PowerDrive™More Responsive Steering Included

Fishing - Press Release

Fishing - RACINE, Wis. — Minn Kota® is giving anglers more power on one of its most popular trolling motor models by adding a 74-pound thrust motor to its PowerDrive™ product line. In addition, the steering system on all PowerDrive models has been re-engineered to respond 40 percent faster than previous models.

“Today, more and more anglers are running bigger boats,” Minn Kota Motors Brand Manager Joe Brown said. “These bigger boats need more powerful thrust levels and more responsive steering. PowerDrive’s new 74-pound thrust motor, combined with the redesigned steering system, delivers the power and boat control that anglers have been asking for.”

PowerDrive’s newly designed MicroTouch™ electric steering system responds 40 percent faster than previous models. This new system provides additional power to overcome steering torque, allowing for quick steering adjustments at low or high trolling speeds. The result is a steering speed that is closer to the response of cable steer foot control motors.

Here are the key features available on the Minn Kota PowerDrive 74-pound thrust model:

Variable speed control
24-volt system
Available with 54-inch or 60-inch composite shaft (guaranteed for life)
New electric steering system with 40 percent faster response than previous models
Patented MicroTouch foot pedal
Maximizer™ technology that provides up to five times longer run time on a single battery charge
Push-to-test battery gauge
CoPilot™ remote control accessory (optional)
AutoPilot™ navigation system (optional)
Universal Sonar integrated transducer, compatible with most major fishfinder brands (optional)
