Edge 55 Full Details
Small to medium freshwater v-hull, bass, pontoon and general fishing boats up to 21'. The 55 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 2,750lbs. For more help picking the right thrust level - or to learn how much your boat weighs - please refer to our thrust guide.
How It's Unique
Edge is Minn Kota's entry-level bow mount motor, and is designed to be functional, rugged and affordable. It's mount was recently upgraded and now uses an extruded arm built from marine-grade anodized aluminum for increased longevity. All Edge motors feature a fixed speed motor.
The Maxxum line is the next step-up in the Minn Kota series. If you want a more powerful motor (up to 112 lbs), a variable speed motor, or a beefy spring-protected shaft housing you'll want to consider the Maxxum line.
Shaft lengths of 45" and 52" are available for Edge 55 motors. For help selecting a shaft length, please see our shaft guide.
Fixed 5-Speed Motor, Cable-Driven Foot Pedal, Built-In Direction Indicator, Weedless Wedge Prop, Composite Shaft. (Learn about these features)
Edge isn't compatible with any AutoPilot, Sonar or i-Pilot accessories. But it is compatible with select quick release plates and handle extensions - please see the right-hand side product bar.
This motor is bolted directly to the bow of the boat using the included mounting hardware, and requires drilling into the boat for installation. 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.

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.
- 20+ Hours: At slow, trolling speeds that draw 5 amps or less
- 4 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
- 2 Hours: Approx. run time with the motor at full throttle
Stow and Deploy Method:
The new-and-improved Edge mount features a multi-hinged design that makes stowing and deploying a snap. When not in use, the motor can be manually removed from the water and naturally rotates into a flat position to convenient stow on the deck. When ready for use, simply slide the motor head and shaft forward, and it effortlessly swings back down into the water.
Motor Steering Method:
This Edge model is steered by foot pedal. The cable-driven foot pedal is controlled by rocking your foot back and forth to control motor direction while motor speed is controlled by the rotating dial on the side of the foot pedal.
Edge's latch-and-door mount makes it easy to adjust the shaft and control how deep the propeller sits in the water.
All Edge motors have a fixed speed motor, including multiple forward and reverse settings. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.
The motor's composite shaft caries a lifetime guarantee. If it's ever broken - regardless of the circumstances - Minn Kota will replace it at no charge. The rest of the motor caries a two year warranty backed up by hundreds of local Minn Kota service centers across the country. View Details Here

16' Tracker Guide V-16 Laker
TrollingMotors.net had the best price/shipping that I found and they shipped quickly. The MinnKota Edge 55 is a great motor so far, installation was fairly easy, and it seems plenty powerful enough for my 16' aluminum boat. I'm very happy with the purchase and the service I received.

Love the Edge 55. Quiet, strong & well built. Very easy to install, feels rock solid. Plenty of power for my boat. Clayton was the best. Answered all my questions and very helpful with shipping information.
Aluminum modified V Jon boat, 16 ft
I purchased a Minn Kota Edge 12V, 55 lb. thrust, 52" shaft. I shopped many sites for this particular trolling motor. Few stores had the longer shaft In stock. Trolling Motors had the 52" shaft available, and it was reasonably priced. The motor was shipped, and it arrived at the boat dealer the next day. Excellent customer service!
17' Jon boat.
Shopping experience was good. Good price on product. Only downside is ups shipping. Although everything looked fine inside I almost did not accept package because of how torn and abused package was on outside. Surprised booklet and mounting bolts were there. Looked like it had been drug to Missouri behind the truck. Hopefully it works.
14' aluminum sylvan I converted to a mini bass boat
This min kota motor was purchased one day and it was on my door step 2 days later. Very fast shipping. The motor was easy to mount on my little boat. I have not had a chance to use it yet but I have owned other min kota motors that have worked well.I know this one will too.

I love this Minolta Terova 55 and Clayton was a great salesman
17.5 flat bottom
This has just the right amount of power.
The Minn Kota Edge 45 is an awesome little motor. It is a very quiet motor even in highest speed setting. It has a lot of torque. Nearly threw me out of the boat the first day out. Really like the way it looks. Very easy to mount and to operate. It pulls my boat around with ease. The motor locks in to the mount good and solid, not a lot of popping when the motor is engaged. Locks in solid in the stowed position as well, little to no bouncing in choppy water. Will only buy Minn Kota motors from now on. Thanks Trollingmotors.net for the quick shipping and good price. Will do business again.

The trolling motor works very well. I am well pleased with it.
