Minnkota Maxxum vs Motorguide


Mark Christianson

Question

Time for a new trolling motor.
I have a Power Drive Minnkota that just has to go.
I want a 24V motor, in the 50 inch shaft range and around 65 pound thrust.
I have always had Minnkota, but I am wondering if Motorguide should be on my hit list.

I was going to settle for the Maxxum, but I was looking through that beast catalog from Bass Pro Shops, and Motorguide caught my eye and made me start thinking.

In my humble opinion to compare a Motorguide to a Minnkota is to compare a old VW beetle to a new BMW.
I've had both and the Minnkota will out perform any motorguide ever made.
This is just my opinion and I'm sure you will find someone to argue the point with me.

Dutchboy is right. I've owned several Minnkota's after buying one Motor Guide. Motor Guide doesn't stack up. I've owned two Maxxum's and the only thing you're not doing if you buy a Maxxum is settling...

I hated my MotorGuide. It was a RF model and had to go back to MotorGuide 3 times to be rebuilt, and it wasn't only the RF that didn't work right on it. I ended up throwing it away -- didn't even want to sell that piece of junk to anybody. I've had 3 Minnkota bowmounts and have no complaints about any of them. Good luck.

Maxxum it is.

Big--Forget the Maxxum and get the Riptide (saltwater)motor from MinnKota. Better components, better housings...

For a few extra bucks you get twice the motor versus the Maxxum.

Check them out before you buy...

I can't believe you even questioned this biglakeba$$ grin.gif

Get the Kota and let me know when you want to hook into some bass on your secret spots! smile.gif

I have had my 64lb thrust Motorguide now for five years. It is the RF model with auto guide. I love it and have not had one problem with it. It was the best value at the time. I think both Minkota and Motorguide have great products. In my opinion you can't go wrong with either.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
