Technical Features for Minn Kota Riptide 45/T
(45 Lbs. Thrust, 36" Shaft)

The Minn Kota Riptide 45/T is a saltwater transom-mount trolling motor. It is designed with the power to tame rough water, push through heavy vegetation and take the kind of pounding that day after day of hard fishing delivers. It allows precise steering tension adjustment to the desired level using the new innovative tension collar situated above the Riptide mount.

The Riptide 45/T features quick-lock cam depth adjuster that makes depth adjustment simple and locks the motor tightly. Instant “state of charge” reading can be acquired easily with the help of push-to-test battery gauge.

Variable Speed: 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.

Push-To-Test Battery Meter

This convenient battery meter tells you how much battery life you have left - at the push of a button. (model shown: Riptide 45)

Weedless Wedge 2: Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking.

Power Prop: Delivers extra power to help you push through heavy vegetation to get you where the fish are.

Saltwater Advantage

Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide's premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor plating & a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint.

Fully Encapsulated Electronics: Marine-grade urethane fully encapsulates Riptide control boards to protect the electronic circuitry.

Sacrificial Anode: We use metals that are properly balanced & a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion.

Advantage Minn kota

Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break, kink or corrode.

Cool, Quiet, Power: Nothing runs cooler or quieter than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life.

2-Year Warranty

This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
