Reliable. Capable. And fully able to handle anything a day of fishing brings. PowerDrive™ shows up to the launch ramp every day with big-time technology, trusted power and easy operation. And with a mount that's tough, sleek and built to take a beating, it's going to keep showing up day after day.

Features

  • Deploy-Assist Lever
    Get in and out of the water easily. Just depress the lever to deploy your trolling motor and when it's time to move, it stows easily and securely.
  • Side-To-Side/Electric Foot Pedal
    Control speed, steering, and momentary and constant on/off with the PowerDrive foot pedal, which is waterproof and features an 18' cord. Note: the foot pedal is not included with i-Pilot models.
  • Spot-Lock with Jog Spot-Lock will hold you in place with unparalleled GPS accuracy. Available on i-Pilot GPS system that is pre-installed, Spot-Lock gives you the power to stay right on top of any productive fishing spot, without touching your trolling motor. With the included heading sensor, you can use Jog to move your Spot-Lock location five feet in any direction. Activate Spot-Lock from the i-Pilot remote or Humminbird fish finder.
  • AutoPilot
    Automatically navigate your boat in any direction you choose. Just point the head of your trolling motor in the direction you want to travel, activate AutoPilot™, and your trolling motor will keep you on that heading automatically, even correcting for wind, waves and current.
  • Push-to-Test Battery Meter
    Press a button to get an instant "stage of charge" reading.
  • Indestructible Composite Shaft — Guaranteed for Life
    At the core of your Minn Kota trolling motor is an indestructible composite shaft. It's a Minn Kota exclusive, and we guarantee it for life.
  • Digital Maximizer
    Provides up to 5 times longer run time on a single battery charge. These variable speed trolling motors let you dial in your exact speed, and they deliver only as much power as you need, helping to conserve your battery for a full day of fishing.
  • Weedless Wedge 2 Prop
    With swept-back flared blades to power through anything without battery-draining chopping and hacking, the Weedless Wedge™ 2 is one of the most trusted props in fishing.
  • Indestructible Composite Shaft - Guaranteed for Life
    At the core of your Minn Kota trolling motor is an indestructible composite shaft. It's a Minn Kota exclusive, and we guarantee it for life.
  • Mobile App Compatibility (i-Pilot only)
    Control i-Pilot directly from your Apple® or Android™ device with our mobile app. You get quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock and Advanced AutoPilot — plus the ability to update i-Pilot software.
  • Cool, Quiet Power
    Every Minn Kota lower unit runs cool to extend trolling motor life, and stays quiet.
  • i-Pilot
    The PowerDrive is available with i-Pilot pre-installed. If your PowerDrive does not have i-Pilot pre-installed, and you want to upgrade to i-Pilot, we have upgrade kits available (kits listed below). The manuals for i-Pilot are linked at the bottom of this page.

  • Available Transducers
    Our saltwater or Riptide PowerDrive do not have a built-in transducer. The freshwater are available with a built-in Universal Sonar 2 (US2) transducer. To connect your transducer to a fish finder, you may need an Adapter Cable. The compatibility chart for the transducer listed at the bottom of this page will help you determine if your fish finder is compatible and if you need an adapter cable.

Specifications

  • Available Thrust and Voltage Options
    The PowerDrive is available in 45 lbs, 55 lbs, and 70 lbs of thrust. The 45 lb and 55 lb thrust motors are 12 volts. The 70 lbs thrust motors are 24 volts. The PowerDrive is not available in 36 volts.
  • Available Shaft Lengths
    The PowerDrive is available in shaft lengths of 48", 54", and 60". The shaft on the PowerDrive cannot be lengthened as it would be cost prohibitive. The shaft can be shortened. If the shaft is shortened at an Authorized Service Center, it will not void your warranty. If the shaft is shortened outside of an Authorized Service Center, the warranty will be voided.
  • Motor Control Options
    The PowerDrive is controlled with either a foot pedal or a handheld remote. If the motor has i-Pilot installed, it is not able to use a foot pedal and will only operate with the i-Pilot remote.
  • Mounting Holes
    All PowerDrives have the same mounting hole patterns as our electric-steer motors for easy interchangeability between cable-steer trolling motors.
  • Shipping Weight
    The weight of the Terrova can vary based on the options on the motor. The shipping weights are listed in the charts below.
  • Item Numbers
    The charts below show the item numbers for the Terrova Motors with a brushed motor.
