Minn Kota Powerdrive vs. Powerdrive V2

4 posts in this topic

Aside from the different foot control, anybody know of other differences between the new and old Powerdrive models?

I've looked for info on the Powerdrive PD70, all I can find is specs on the V2's.

thanks, LB

I was under the impression they didn't make original powerdrives any more. Only terova and v2.

I have a new (non V2) PD70 that I got from a buddy, intended to put on a used boat. Not going to use it now, new boat came with a V2.

I called Johnson Outdoors this morning. Other than the redesigned foot control, the V2 has a redesigned stow and deploy and a digital voltage control board that is smoother and conserves juice better than the original.

I think that Universal Sonar 2 is only available on the V2's as well.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
