Great motor, put it on the rudder of outback mirage. I use the mirage drive but with somewhat bad legs I thought this would be useful if needed. Haven't "had" to use it but it is does work exceptionally well.

The kit is easy to install and works great. The problem is the shaft seal fails and ruins the motor and gears if fishing line gets into the prop. The manufacturer does not cover this and they know it is a problem as they say they are developing a line cutter to help with this. The manufacturer told me they will not cover any damage due to fishing line but they are making a device to stop it. I have been in boats fishing for over 40 years with motors and never had seal damage due to fishing line. They have a problem and will not back up their product. I had to buy a replacement motor do to this. If you use one of these be sure and shut down as soon as you know your line has tangled in the prop and pull the prop and clear the line to prevent failure. It took me over 3 weeks to get an answer from the manufacturer on this problem and what they would do; they did nothing except admit the problem, and sell me a replacement motor for $600.

I really like this product. A bit pricey but very well integrated into the Pro-angler. What really makes it worth having for me at my age is the peace of mind it provides when fishing on lakes when the wind comes up. The Lithium battery provides plenty of power and range to get me to the fishing holes across the lake and back safely. When installing make sure you don't place the battery over your fish finder transducer to avoid interference.

Bought the Toqeedo Evolve 2 years ago,,, First year enjoyed,, second year the connectors corroded even though I used a recommended spray on the connectors so I replaced the cables,,, Then Torqeedo recalls the battery and keeps me waiting 3 months for a replacement, because get this new battery has different cables so a adapter is now needed which was out of stock. So I spent 3 times what a trolling motor should cost and it sits unused while I wintered in the Florida Everglades. I had big plans to use it in Florida bay!
