The Minn Kota Fortrex is the workhorse of the trolling motor world. Built for guides or fishermen who put their motors through the works and depend on them standing up to the challenge. Originally designed for larger freshwater boats in open water, these are the toughest motors Minn Kota makes.
All Fortrex motors come standard with a nitrogen-charged gas cylinder spring-loaded Lift Assist mechanism that takes the work out of getting your motor in and out of the water. Deploying is a s easy as releasing the motor and watching it slide gently into the water and stowing is as easy as lifting the tailgate on your SUV. The Fortrex motor mount is constructed with a one-piece heavy-duty anodized aluminum arm for added strength plus an integrated counter tension stabilizer to keep your motor in place whether it’s stowed or deployed. No side-play, wobble, or bouncing. Less weight, more strength, half the effort, and double the performance. These motors are built to last.
