Not HappyI bought this model EDGE 55 4 years ago and some fishing line and weeds wrapped up around the shaft. I noticed this when I had problems with the motor shutting off and on when in us, this was the first time I noticed the motor was a little sluggish. I had a older model trolling motor which has gone above and beyond on its use and I bought this one thinking it was time for an upgrade,I put my older Minn Kota back on my boat its still working fine.

On my boatThis a good trolling motor, but if you can spare a little more money I suggest to upgrade to something with a little more power for those windy days.
Does this motor need to be kept at one of the 5 speeds? Or is it the variable type where it can go in between the speeds as well?
Asked by: wooger5
Per the manufacture, None of their motors need to be kept at a certain speed. They design them so the customer can use them at any speed.
