Terova vs. Powerdrive V2

4 posts in this topic

I notice there is a big price difference between to the types of trolling motors. I was just wondering if anyone out there could educate me on what they are. Just curious if I can justify buying a terova or not. Thanks in advance.

The footpedal is a better design on the Terova, but for me it wasn't $200 better. I went with a 70 PD US AP V2 60" shaft and couldn't be happier.

I've used both and really am not all that impressed with the Terrova foot pedal. There's nothing wrong with it, I just wouldn't say it was that much of an improvement. It takes up more room in the boat which can be an issue if you're leaning on a pro pole or seating on a seat (instead of standing on the deck), and I think you need to do more and farther leg movements to control it. I'm not complaining about it, I'm just saying I wouldn't buy it "just" for the new foot pedal.

I agree with both posts above and I also went with the same thing mnfishinguy has.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
