    Solid trolling motor
    This is an exceptional trolling motor. You will notice that the shaft is aluminum and fiberglass. This way when you go through heavy chop it does not shear bolts off like the competitors trolling motors do.

    Perfect for my boat.
    The local store did not stock the 42 inch shaft, but the staff placed the order for me in the store. It was shipped at no charge to my home and was received on the third business day. The install was easy and it is plenty strong for my Carolina Skiff JV 15.

    Very dissappointed in purchase
    It was very 1st thing I have ever purchased from Academy and head was cracked underneath. Hence NO trolling motor at such a great price too.

    R3-45 MotorGuide---a GREAT Trolling Motor!!
    I am so happy I bought this trolling motor. It has more than enough power to move, and I do mean MOVE my home made 15' Heavy Duty Aluminum Boat along the water. I reversed the head and mounted it on the bow. We used it intermittently most of the day and when I got home, my battery had lots of juice to spare---this is a well designed motor. The 5 forward speeds give the boater options based on need, and the 2 reverse speeds are sufficient to back you up quick should the need arise. I was able to ... read more slide the shaft up or down with ease to adjust the depth of the motor in the water for the right sweet spot for my particular boat. The wide mounting bracket and adjusting screws are heavy duty and well made. I placed the order and as usual Academy did their part and I had it in short order. Their shipping service is excellent--always offering tracking when needed. Their service is second to none. I love Academy---and I love this R3-45 MotorGuide Trolling Motor as well---you will too!

    Great product!
    I bought this trolling motor a couple of weeks ago. Ordered it on a Sunday night and it was at my door 2 days later! Mounting was easy. I had an older Minn Kota freshwater bow mount, and the holes matched up perfect with this new mount. I have an 18' aluminum bay boat and we used the new Riptide all day (10 hours) out on the lake and still had 30% battery left for the trolling motor. The 55lb thrust had no problem pulling my boat around the lake. No issues at all. Great product!

    Great trolling motor
    I bought this 3 months ago and like it. The only downfall is the screw in the head unit keeps shearing off. I have replaced the screw and nut 4 times in just the past year alone. You have to disconnect the TM if you are going into heavy chop. Then put it back on when your at your fishing destination.

    Well Built
    Great extension handle. Fixed length is steady enough to lean on if you need to. The first center console I purchased had one on it and the first time I used the 24V troll motor I was almost thrown out of the boat. Had it not been for the extended handle, which I grabbed as I was falling, I would probably had to try and swim to catch up with the boat! Aside from that, the unit is easy to install, large enough to give you easier steering ability yet small enough to be out of the way when the ... read more troll motor is raised and out of service.

    nice handle could be improved
    Had one last year and the handle broke where the metal attaches to plastic piece. It is fastened with only one rivet. The boat I bought this year had one on it and only the plastic clamp remained. The seller said it broke just as mine had. I drilled the rivet out and through and put a stainless bolt through. It should have been made that way from the factory.

    Terrible Instructions
    Terrible instructions. Wiring diagram was missing. Pros: Reliable motor Cons: Terrible instructions / Missing Wiring Diagram Bracket Support that keeps the transom mount from beating up your boat. Is the worst design I have ever seen on a trolling motor. Minn Kota is an old company with apparently old technologies. I have also owned the 110# Ipolit. It was a big disappointment to me as well.

    Minn Kota 80lb Trolling Motor
    Great brand name trolling motor, easy to install, great features with reverse and expandable handle so do noTneed an extension. Came with enough wire with ends to hook up direct to battery without having to install a plug. Best price too.

    minn-kota 45/45
    bracket racks a little when using the high setting. the chart for what motor you need is very miss leading. I used the depth chart to come up with 45/45. after installing I realized I needed the 36" length for better adjustment. the motor runs smooth and quiet.

    Good motor
    I bought this and put on one of my boats. Powerful motor that steers easy. 45 inches was a bit long for my boat, I wish I had purchased 36". I bought this online and it shipped to my house within a couple days freight free.

    great value !
    I found this item on line at Academy Sports , I called the on line service representative to check the inventory at my local store here in Florence SC. She informed me that they had one in stock and that they would have it ready for my pick up. I went into the area where trolling motors were and there still in the box was my trolling motor marked hold for pick up with my name on it . I switched from a foot control unit to a bow mount hand control to free up space on my casting deck. It is ... read more wonderful, simple and it's as strong as I will need on my 17 ft center console.And it's easily removable.Great customer service!

    Perfectly satisfied.
    Puchased about a month ago. This is the hand tiller model. Using it on a lightly modified Lowe 14 foot Jon boat. (aka a "bateau" where I come from). Courteous and professional customer service department in regards to sales. (No issues with the motor, so haven't had a need to call them back) Motor shipped promptly, packaging complete and intact. Felt like Christmas in May. Battery drain much lower than expected.
