New 2020 Upgraded 12V 1HP Electric Trolling Outboard.

Brushless Motor, Ultra Light and Portable! Only 14 Lbs of Weight!

What makes this particular electric outboard motor very unique, is not only its short shaft, specifically designed for inflatable boats, kayaks and KaBoats, but also its light weight, due to use of brushless motor. Not only this trolling motor portable, but it also lighter than any comparable regular, non-brushless 12V trolling motors. That is important feature when carrying boat and motor around. It folds down to smallest size for its class, only 39"x12"x6" in size. Motor head only 23" long, compare to our regular trolling motor with 32" long motor head. Also, it has 600W power output, compare to 540W output of other model we carry. And, it comes with Digitmax Energy Saver, so it will run longer on same battery than any other comparable power trolling motors.

Another very unique feature of this trolling motor is a tilting throttle handle with 10 adjustable positions. Adjustable handle allows it to be lifted almost 45 degree up, or all the way down, parallel to the motor shaft. This makes trolling motor more portable, compact and allow much easier transportation and storage than other brands trolling motors with fixed perpendicularly trolling handle. Adjustable angle throttle handle also makes motor operation more comfortable, because you can raise it up or tilt down.

Our new brushless trolling motor model uses 12V, with 50 Amp Max Draw. Battery Level reader built into controller housing displays accurate available battery power, and shows when battery need a recharging.

This electric trolling motor is salt water ready, and can be used in an ocean, but we highly recommend washing it out with fresh water after each salt water use to extend motor's lifespan.

To operate this Trolling motor you will need 12V Deep Cycle battery that sold in any hardware or auto store. You can get Deep Cycle battery in Wall-Mart or Costco for about $55. High-end Deep Cycle battery will run about $140. To charge battery you will also need Battery Charger, that will run about $30 to $60 depending on a brand.

Electric Trolling Motors FAQ

    Question: How Long Can My Trolling Motor Run on a Battery Charge?

    Answer: This is probably the most common question about these motors. And before spending your hard-earned money on one, you should first make sure you know all the facts. You probably want your motor to last as long as possible on a single charge, so you will need to look at the two important specs. These are the battery’s “amperage hour rating” and the motor’s “amps drawn.”

    The amperage hour rating is a measure of how long the battery will supply consistent amperage to the motor. The higher the rating, the longer a battery will be able to power a motor. So what does this actually mean? It means that, for example, a 100 amperage hour battery would be able to supply 25 amps of power for 4 hours before running out. Or if your trolling motor was drawing less amps, let’s say 10, the battery could power the motor for 10 hours. It’s just that simple.

    The other important piece of information to factor in when trying to figure out how long your trolling motor will power your boat on a single charge is the motor’s amps drawn. This is the “amps” part of the equation above. So, for example, if you have 80 amp battery that’s powering a trolling motor that draws 40 amps per hour at top speed, then your motor will be able to propel your boat at top speed for 2 hours.

    Question: What is warranty on that motor?

    Answer: Warranty on motor is 1 year.
