Minn Kota Riptide Saltwater Transom Mount Series
Note: Due to massive demand there is limited supply of 12V, 24V and 36V Minn Kota engines in Australia. We have heaps of stock, and also plenty on forward order, so place your order today to make sure you don't miss out. If it's not in stock we will be in touch to let you know an ETA (and offer a refund if desired) or you can call on 9546-1324. The superior durability and long lasting performance of the all new and improved Riptide is also available for the back of the boat. Available in 4 models, all our transom mount motors are 12 volt and range from 40 to 55 lbs thrust. They feature an enhanced corrosion protection, 'sacrificial anode' system and all the rugged reliability you expect from Minn Kota. With the 'Push to Test' battery meter you get an instant state of charge reading at the push of a button. Rebuilt with an intuitive, easy-to-use design, the all-new Riptide Transom delivers up to 55 pounds of power and precision manoeuverability. With a push-to-test battery meter, the battery-extending power of Digital Maximizer (on select models) and unmatched corrosion protection, Riptide Transom means fish are out of places to hide
All Riptide trolling motors (transom mount and bow mount) feature a sacrificial zinc anode to fight galvanic corrosion. The replaceable anode is conveniently mounted on the prop hub and provides for better protection and longer motor life.
STAINLESS STEEL HARDWARE
Provides an extra measure of durability and corrosion resistance while maintaining a clean, sharp appearance.
COOL, QUIET POWER
Minn Kota motors feature larger brushes and commutators to provide for cooler, more quite operation. Minn Kota's unique bearing system produces a motor with low rpm/high torque to cut down on fish spooking noise...so quiet they'll never hear you coming.
MAXIMIZER (RT55 Models only)
Conventional speed coil technology delivers a constant, steady flow of power to the motor, regardless of speed setting. The result is wasted power and excessive heat. Minn Kota variable speed motors utilise a system that delivers the precise amount of power needed at any speed setting. The result is five times longer run time on a single charge for more hours on the water.
URETHANE ENCAPSULATED ELECTRONICS
All Riptide control boards (transom mount and bow mount) are fully encapsulated in marine grade urethane to form an impregnable barrier against the destructive effects of saltwater.
INDESTRUCTIBLE COMPOSITE SHAFTS
Better than steel, particularly in saltwater. Will not bend, kink, rust or corrode. Guaranteed for life. Standard on all Riptide transom mount and bow mount models.
EXTENDABLE TILT TWIST TILLER CONTROL
Puts natural outboard convenience in the palm of your hand. The RT55 series has full variable control and the RT40 and RT50 have 5 forward settings and 3 reverse. All models feature a tiller that extends up to 15 centimetres for comfortable steering.
