Small to medium freshwater v-hull, bass, Jon, and general fishing boats up to 17'. 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 weights - please refer to our thrust guide.
How It's Unique
The Minn Kota Traxxis is a step-up from less expensive transom motors such as the Endura C2. Compared to the Endura, Traxxis features a heavier duty mount with multiple adjustments, a tilting and extending control handle, one hand motor stowing, and variable speed operation. Additionally, Traxxis features an integrated battery meter that allows you to monitor the charge of your battery.
The Minn Kota Riptide Transom has similar features to the Traxxis, but is made for Saltwater use. The Riptide Transom is available in both variable and fixed speed versions.
The Minn Kota Traxxis 55 is available with either a 36" or 42" shaft.
One-Hand Stow, Steering Tension Control, Cam Depth Adjuster, Tilt / Extended Tiller, Power Prop, Indestructible Composite Shaft, Digital Maximizer, Super Quiet Operations. (Learn about these features)
Extension Handles are available for all Traxxis motors
Mount the Minn Kota Traxxis to your boat using the heavy-duty transom mount. Simply place the mount over the top of your boat's transom and tighten the two heavy-duty clamps to secure the motor in place.
Bolting is not required for the Traxxis motors

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:
With a single hand, you can remove your motor from the water without needing to fuss with buttons, levers or locks. Pull the motor slightly up to disengage, then rotate back for convenient stowing.
Motor Steering Method:
Steer the trolling motor with the included hand tiller. The Minn Kota Traxxis steering control lets you fine-tune the amount of play in the steering column. Want smooth steering for precise maneuvering? It's easy to dial the tension back using the tension collar. Need a more rigid steering column to maintain a course? Tighten down the collar to eliminate steering play and keep the motor in place. Riptide Transom's collar lets you customize tension for any situation, making motor operation more convenient.
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

The traxxis 55 works great pushes the boat great. The purchase from Trolling Motors was a great experience it arrived on time a smooth sale.the sales person was very helpful Thanks, David May
I'm using the Traxxis 55 on my 15' scanoe and it moves it through the water fast. The push button release on the front of the mount is great for maneuvering through shallow water when you have to lift up for gravel spots or real shallow water. The motor does run even when you release the tiller to the down positions, which is again handy in tight spots etc. through the river. If you have a need for the extra features of the Traxxis, such as river fishing, then it's worth the extra money. I went up river on a slower river section just after it rained and the motor moved us fast especially in the deeper spots where I can get the prop down where it's supposed to be. If you just want to buzz around a lake in a small scanoe, the 30lbs would probably be fine for you, and the Endura Max lines are more hearty in my opinion. There have been complaints in other reviews about the Traxxis mount bolts bending easily, and that's what happened to me, too.
