Brushed Motor vs QUEST Motor

Why use a Brushed Motor

While the Quest motors are only available on select models, the Minn Kota brushed motors have a wider range of thrust options from 30 lbs of thrust up to 112 lbs of thrust. This wider range includes 12 volt options perfect for smaller boats with less room for additional batteries. Our brushed motors are also available as transom mount motors and as bow-mounted hand-tiller motors for saltwater.

Why use a QUEST Motor

We have taken the world’s greatest trolling motors and redesigned them to outperform anything else for years to come. With a larger & stronger mount to accommodate extra thrust and torque, new motor controller, and software changes have made it the most power efficient motor on the market. The new battery monitoring system gives you real time monitoring of power and automatic power saving mode when batteries reach 20% charge.
