Minn Kota Fortrex
Freshwater Bow-Mount Motor
Discontinued. Browse our selection of other great motors >>
It’s not just powerful. It’s angry. Fortrex’s ruthlessly tough mount packs up to 112 pounds of thrust to tear through anything you put in its path and deliver you to the fish.
Lift-Assist’s stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring makes stow and deploy easy. When you deploy, let go of Fortrex and Lift-Assist will gradually guide it into the water – quickly, but without impact. And stowing your motor is 50% easier – as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate.
That extruded, anodized aluminum arm doesn’t just look tough. It redefines tough. The Mono-Arm Design gives it ruggedness and strength that’s unmatched by any other motor on the water. And with its ingenious one-piece construction, Fortrex runs with less wear, longer life and quieter operation.
Utilizes an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor is stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque and years of silent operation.
Fortrex Foot Pedal
Stay wired to the water with our ultra-responsive cable-steer foot pedal. Its easy to operate, ergonomic design provides exact speed control and precision heel-toe steering. 5 foot cable.
Removable Bowguard 360°
The Bowguard 360°™ breaks away on impact from any direction and automatically resets itself - protecting your motor and your boat, so you can fish without worry. Plus, its dual bearing system eliminates noise, and it's easily removable.
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.

Advantage Minn Kota
Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. That’s why we’re confident enough to guarantee it for life. If we could guarantee it for longer than a lifetime, we would.
Cool, Quiet, Power: Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming.
2-Year Warranty: This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
