Favorite Trolling Motor Battery Type

6 posts in this topic

Well, I think it's been since 2000 when I last got new batteries for my electric trolling motor. I'm pretty sure one of them is ready for replacement since it won't take a complete charge (based off the charger lights). I'll probably replace them both at the same time.

What manufacturer/type does everyone recommend? It is a 24 V system, and I am currently running gell cells. I figure anywhere between 6-8 years is pretty good, but looking for people's recommendations to replace the batteries.

I like my Intersate batteries. 24v system, 70lb PD V2. Aluma Trophy 180. So, its not a very light load. Troll around all day. Havnt been able to totally drain em yet even beating em up on Mille Lacs.

The (GNB?) Stowaways (group 31) I bought several years ago still seem to be doing fine.

      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.
