Trolling motor assist

Recommended Posts

my back is about as bad as they come.  Pulling the trolling motor and letting it down is a killer.  Are there any aftermarket lift assist Pistons for a min kota edge?  I like everything about this motor except for the back wrenching it takes to deploy.

You might have to do some plastic trimming, but I bet you could adapt these to make it work for you. http://thmarine.com/g-force-equalizertm-trolling-motor-lift-assist.html#!prettyPhoto

Also, if you don't have it already, look into the G-force handle. The rope is made of a coated wire so it won't break, but more importantly in your situation the cable is longer than stock. It prevents you from having to bend over to lift and deploy the motor placing more strain on your arm instead of your back.

Call Robbie Patterson, the one that invented that kit for Motor Guide trolling motors, to see if it can work with a Minnkota Edge mount.
