As a fanatic boat fisherman, you can't really do without Minn Kota. This North American brand, founded in 1934, is known worldwide as the one of the most reliable brands in electric motors for boats and fishing boats. Electric motors do not use petrol and are very quiet – therefore they do not scare the fish. Moreover, these engines are allowed on many waters where conventional combustion engines are not allowed. Minn Kota has continuously developed its engines and reached a product level that is almost unmatched. One of the most important technologies is the Weedless Wedge propeller technology. The propellers are designed in such a way that plants cannot get stuck in them, even in water with heavy vegetation. This development significantly reduces the chance of engine damage. Moreover, Minn Kota designs the motor shafts of composite. This makes them unbreakable and corrosion resistant.
The Minn Kota Endura models are reliable, user-friendly and affordable. This makes the Endura one of the best-selling models in the Minn Kota range. The name is due to the endurance and performance with which this motor series is equipped. The new engine mount with tilt mechanism is wider and deeper than those of previous models and therefore also fits boats with a strong transom. This model series also features a battery indicator on the engine head. The Endura models are often bought by users who want to get their first experience with the electric motor, and then switch to a more luxurious model after years of pleasure and convenience.
The thrust of Minn Kota electric outboard motors is given in pounds (lbs). Motors with different capacities and voltages are offered. How much current is required can depend on many factors. Performance requirements can vary, depending on the weight of the boat, to external conditions such as currents and wind. For a bellyboat or light dinghy, 20 to 30lbs is usually sufficient. For a somewhat larger fishing boats used to fish in waters with more wind or current, a Minn Kota 55lbs is usually chosen.
