For the serious but value-conscious fisherman, we are excited to introduce the new MotorGuide X3 Digital trolling motor featuring variable speed control. The X3 Digital is a sturdy, no-frills motor that offers a number of innovations, including best-in-class steering performance and a large diameter corrosion-resistant shaft with construction that provides greater impact protection and is backed by a lifetime factory warranty. The X3 includes a new, aircraft-grade, extruded aluminum mounting bracket built tough to minimize flex and deliver precision control under high-thrust.
X3 55FW Digital Hand Control Full Details
Small to medium sized freshwater v-hull, pontoon, jon and general fishing boats up to 21'. The 55 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 2,750 lbs. 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:
The X3 Digital series is a step-up from the Freshwater series and the regular X3 in that it now features variable control. The X3 Digital Hand Control is only available with 55 lbs of thrust.
If you're looking for value-priced wireless control, we recommend the MotorGuide Wireless series trolling motors. The Wireless series motors are available in 45, 55 and 75 lb thrust levels.
The X3 Digital Hand Control is only available in 50" shaft length. For help selecting a shaft length, please see our shaft guide.

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.
X3 Digital 55 Hand Control 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.

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 X3 series motors features a new aircraft-grade extruded aluminum mount. When the trolling motor is 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:
The MotorGuide X3 Hand Control is steered by hand.
An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit in the water.
MotorGuide X3 Digital motors are variable speed. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.
MotorGuide motors carry a 2 year warranty against manufacture defects and a lifetime warranty on shafts, all supported by hundreds of local MotorGuide service centers across the country.
