Why is it that a Motorguide 60" 36 volt is nearly $1000.00 less than a Minn Kota?
Posner Marine has a spot Lock 36 volt 60" MG for $1800.00
the Minn Kota is nearly $2600.00

Is the motor Guide that bad??

I have both and will never buy another MG. Been in shop numerous times during the 2.5 years I've owned it, and customer service is bad. MG is run in fresh water. Minn Kota is used in Gulf and no issues for 5 years.

i think it's just luck of the draw. i have MG and have had some trouble with the head coming loose. warranty covered it both times. my fishing partner has MK and has had it in the shop a couple times also. i do think my MG is stronger than his MK. both are 36V, but then again, another buddy has a MK that will throw you overboard if you're not paying attention.

Have had a couple MG with no problem. Just ordered a new Xi5 24v 80lb 60” shaft from Anchor Express for $1665.99 shipped- no tax😬 (was shipped next day out of Tampa). Has a 2 yr warranty and you can purchase an additional 2yr from MG for around $180 within the first 12 months.
