Foretrex Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor
With 80 Lb. Thrust, 45” Shaft, and 24 Volt Power
Sometimes, the simplest solution is best. In this case, it’s a revolution. Fortrex’s innovative Mono-Arm Design features an extruded, anodized aluminum, structural beam that operates with no metal-to-metal contact and 75% less torsion. A single hinge point and rear pivot bearing with 20% more surface area deliver less wear, longer life, and quieter operation than traditional motor mounts.
Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS) - CTS uses an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor's 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 - 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 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.
Digital Maximizer - 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.
Indestructible Composite Shaft – Guaranteed For Life! - Pound for pound, the composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why Minn Kota is confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft that’s guaranteed for life.
Cool, Quiet Power - Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. The extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And the unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming.
