Technical Features for Minn Kota Maxxum 70/BG
(70 Lbs. Thrust, 52" Shaft)

The Minn Kota Maxxum70/SC/BG/H(52") freshwater bow-mount trolling motor with a 52 in. shaft is designed with the power to tame rough water, push through heavy vegetation and take the kind of pounding that day after day of hard fishing delivers. The Weedless Wedge™ 2 prop features swept-back and flared blades to "wedge" weeds away and pass through the thick stuff without battery-draining "chopping and hacking".

The Maxxum70/SC/BG/H(52") features Bowguard 360°™ breakaway mount that breaks away on impact from any direction, protecting your motor, shaft and boat. Its composite shaft is stronger than steel that flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode. It is also compatible with Mega 360.

Weedless Wedge 2 Prop

Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge™ 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.

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. 
Cool, Quiet, Power:Nothing runs cooler or quieter 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.


This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
