Fortrex 36V-112lbs-45" Foot Control Freshwater Trolling Motor
Every serious angler should spend more time fishing and less time positioning their boat. Conveniently, Minn Kota built the smartest, toughest, most intuitive trolling motors on the water. The Minn Kota Fortrex trolling motor is thoroughly thought and rethought until it’s perfect enough. The goal is to only catch more fish!
Powered by up to 112lbs of thrust, Fortrex features a savagely tough mount and rugged Mono-Arm Design. And when it gets riled up, it tears through anything you put in its path to deliver you to the fish. So go ahead. Make it a day.
- Indestructible Composite Shaft
Pound for pound and guaranteed for life, the composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink, or corrode.
Nothing runs cooler or quieter 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.
- Weedless Wedge 2 Propeller
Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge™ 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Gives the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.
Lift-Assist’s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of the motor and Lift-Assist will gradually guide it into the water – quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is 50% easier – as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate.
That extruded, the anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines tough. The 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.
Utilizes 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 years of silent operation.

Removable Bowguard 360°
The Bowguard 360°™ breaks away on impact from any direction and automatically resets itself - protecting your motor and your boat, so you can fish without worry. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise, and it's easily removable.
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.
