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.

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
