Reconditioned MinnKotas


Down Deep

Question

Cabelas has a pretty good deal on on reconditioned MinnKota Vector stern motors. They have a one year warranty. Has anyone ever bought a recon MinnKota? Any problems?

I won a reconditioned motor a Pheasants Forever Banquet and use it on my duck hunting boat every fall and have had not issues with it.

I bought a reconditioned power drive 40# last April. Ran it all summer without the slightest problem. Very happy just hope I didn't jinx myself

I purchased a Minn Kota 74lb. Autopilot w/ universal sonar last spring from the Bobber Shop in Mankato. Probably saved a couple hundred bucks-came with a one year warranty and ran flawlessly all of last year. Looked like it was brand new out of the box. I figured if there was going to be any problems I would still be doing o.k. because the service center for Minn Kota is right in my backyard. From my experience I would definately recommend these units.

I am from Mankato, the home of Minn Kota, many years ago! I still buy them and would tell any one to buy one. Recon or not. I have had several of their motors and have only had one go in for repair. I also think with some place's, like Vexilar, I would buy them any time beause these are the one's that are gone though from top to bottom before we get them. Good Luck!! Mike

I got a refurbed Maxxum 70 last year for $520. I saved a couple hundred bucks and couldn't be happier with it.

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
