|Recommended for:||Medium to large freshwater v-hull, bass, pontoon and general fishing boats up to 23'. The 80 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 4,000lbs. For more help picking the right thrust level - or to learn how much your boat weights - please refer to our thrust guide.|
|How It's Unique:||The Terrova series is a step-up from the Powerdrive V2 line of motors. While both models are compatible with AutoPilot/CoPilot/i-Pilot/i-Pilot Link accessories, only the Terrova line offers the ability to use a foot pedal AND a wireless CoPilot or i-Pilot controller simultaneously. Additionally, Terrova includes a unique mount that features and easy-to-use lever that allows for one-hand stowing of the trolling motor and offers thrust options of 55, 80 and 101 lbs.
We recommend the PowerDrive V2 trolling motor for fishermen who are looking for a value-priced motor that is compatible with AutoPilot/CoPilot/i-Pilot/i-Pilot Link accessories and doesn't need to simultaneously control the motor with a foot pedal. PowerDrive v2 is available in 45, 50, 55 and 70 lb thrust levels.

Ideally, it's best to have access to the underside of the mounting platform in order to secure and fasten the bolting hardware. However, if accessing the underside is impossible you can use no access bolts to secure the motor from the top. For more information see our compatibility and mounting guides.|

|Wiring Details:||Terrova 80 can be wired directly to the batteries, and can also be used in conjunction with a plug and receptacle for a cleaner, more professional installation that's easy to remove. To protect your motor from damage, a circuit breaker is also recommended but is not required for installation.|

|What Is Included:||
|What Else Is Required:||2 Marine Batteries, Battery Charger, Circuit Breaker (Recommended)|
|Amperage Draw:||56 amps at maximum speed|
|Motor Run Time:||Important Note: As you likely won't be running your trolling motor perpetually, the actual amount of on-the-water time a motor should allow will be substantially longer than times listed. Actual motor run time can vary depending on conditions (winds, waves, etc) and the type of battery used. Listed below are run-time estimates assuming a 100 amp hour rated battery. To learn more, please see our article on calculating motor run time.
|Stow and Deploy Method:||Terrova's Deploy-Assist lever makes it easy to deploy the motor by squeezing a lever, raising the shaft and deploying it into the water. When not in use, the shaft and head can be quickly removed from the water and laid on the deck for storage.|
|Motor Steering Method:||The motor is steered via the included foot pedal which can control motor speed and direction. If the CoPilot or i-Pilot accessories are purchased, Terrova can also be controlled via wireless remote control. Note: If a CoPilot or i-Pilot wireless remote is installed, the foot pedal will function. The Terrova is the only Minn Kota motor that offers the ability to use a foot pedal AND a wireless CoPilot or i-Pilot controller simultaneously.|
|Shaft Adjustment:||An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit in the water.|
|Motor Speed:||All Terrova motors have a variable speed motor. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.|

Tracker 17 pro-v 17Review by Bob Fishman
Javelin Renegade, 19'Review by Jtaylorfl
Being able to "point and go" (auto pilot and continuous speed selected) is a great feature. When I fish down a bank or along a grassline, I simply point the MK Terrova in the direction I want to travel, set it and then step away from it and fish. It is liberating.
Several times I set the "Spot Lock/Anchor" feature while a few yards away from a dock to concentrate on fishing it. Though the anchor feature doesn't hold you exactly in one spot (it is advertised to keep you within a five foot radius, but I think it's more like ten), I believe it provides the angler with even better opportunities to fish a variety of angles because of the movement and readjustments it makes.
The only negative comment I have about the system is the excessive amount of foot pedal cable (18 feet). I keep it coiled up and tied near the bow but it is a lot of cable to keep out of the way. While this trolling motor is expensive, it is well worth it's price. I still have some additional features to try out but so far I am extremely pleased with its performance and the quality in which the product is made. (Posted on March 31, 2013)
