Raptor Features, Specifications and Manuals (2020-present)

Raptor keeps working to hold you more reliably than any other anchor, especially in rough conditions. It knows where you’re anchoring, what’s happening to your boat, and what to do next. It reads the bottom, senses the anchoring force and reacts automatically to keep you locked down until the moment you’re ready to change spots. Legendary Minn Kota durability and innovative anchoring technology make Raptor the only hydraulic anchor that can call itself relentless.

  • Active Anchoring
    Raptor senses when wind and waves pick up and start to threaten your hold. Then it automatically anchors itself back, and you don't have to lift a finger.
  • Auto-Bottom Mode
    Whether you're anchoring into rocks, mud, silt, sand or anything else - Raptor automatically senses the bottom to apply the right hold, with Auto-Bottom Mode.
    It's just one of four User-Selectable Anchoring Modes on Raptor. You can also activate Soft Bottom Mode for mud and silt, Rough Water Mode in wind and heavy chop, or Standard Mode for normal conditions.
  • Durable Design
    A wider profile, heavy duty reinforced pivot points and extruded aluminum design will keep Raptor on the water in the harshest conditions.
  • Increased Retraction Force
    Every inch of Raptor is built Minn Kota® tough: from its corrosion-resistant, aluminum construction and hydraulic-powered design to its powerfully engineered Reaction Force, to ensure spike removal in all bottom types, which gets you out of any spot quickly when it's time to move.
  • Multiple Control Options
    Control Raptor from anywhere on the boat using your choice of options: Wireless Remote, Foot Switch, Advanced GPS Navigation Remote, One-Boat Network Mobile App or right from the Humminbird fish finder.
  • User-Selectable Anchoring Modes
    Separate anchoring modes for Rough Water (heavy wind and chop), Soft Bottom (muddy or silted bottom), standard (normal anchoring), and Auto-Bottom Mode on Active Anchoring equipped models which automatically delivers the ideal anchoring force by sensing bottom hardness.
  • Auto Up/Down
    Automatically deploy or retract your Raptor with the push of a button; no need to hold the button down.
  • Anchor From Anywhere
    Control Raptor from anywhere on your boat at the push of a button – whether it’s the included wireless remote, optional wireless foot switch, your smartphone, your Humminbird fishfinder, or i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link system.
  • Saltwater Rated
    We’ve been combating the corrosive effects of saltwater for over 80 years, and we’ve built that know-how into Raptor. So saltwater won’t stand a chance.
  • Indestructible Anchoring Spike
    Strong and flexible composite anchor spike backed with a lifetime guarantee.
