Edge 70 Full Details
Medium to large freshwater v-hull, bass, pontoon and general fishing boats up to 23'. The 70 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 3,500lbs. 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 70 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
- 4.8 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
- 2.4 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.
An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit 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
