# Frequent question: How many amps does a 36 volt trolling motor pull?

Contents

## How long will 36V trolling motor battery last?

Well-Known Member. You should be getting much more than 4 hours. I would expect to run it hard for a 14 hour day of fishing without running out of power.

## How many amps does a 40 lb trolling motor use?

40 to 45 lbs thrust is roughly 29 amps/hr instead of the 42 amps/hr that those respective motors draw for the same thrust.

## Do you need 3 batteries for a 36 volt trolling motor?

36 Volt Systems (3 batteries): 1. Three 12-volt deep cycle batteries are required.

## Can I run a 36 volt trolling motor on 24 volts?

According to Minn Kota you can run a 36 volt motor on 24 volts: BUT, it will run hotter, draw more amps, deplete the batteries sooner, and run the risk of damaging the batteries from over heating. The iPilot function and steering motor may not work. All in all, probably not a good idea.

## How many batteries do I need for a 36 volt trolling motor?

While small and medium trolling motors use a single 12v marine battery, larger trolling motors use larger 24v and 36v systems, and require 2 or 3 marine batteries, accordingly.

## How many amps does a 112 lb thrust trolling motor use?

But, the big engine will not run out of juice and you will not have to buy any new batteries. I would like to know where you found size 27m deep cycle batteries with 105 amp-hour capacity and what brand they are. In my experience, one needs a size 29 or 31 battery to get near that amp-hour rating.

## How many amps does a trolling motor pull?

The Force trolling motor can run on 24 volts or 36 volts, and the chart below shows how a 24v setting will draw higher amps then running at 36 volts. And how a setting of 30% draws 10% of the amount of power used at 90%.

24 Volt Power Source.

Throttle Level Thrust Current
100% 355 N-m (80 lbf) 57 A

## How many amps does a MinnKota 40 lb thrust draw?

The Endura 40 is 42 Maximum Amp Draw that at 100% power.

## What size battery do I need for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?

For a 55 lb thrust in a trolling motor, you will at least need the battery size of 240Ah rating. Depending on the speed, you will be using approximately 20-40 amps. A 240 is an ideal size, and it will last about 6 hours.

## What gauge wire should I use for a 36V trolling motor?

Eight gage wire is fine for the length of the original wire. If you can hook the original wire directly to the batteries it will be fine. However, you will be increasing the run if you add more wire, therefore you also have to increase the size to 6 gage.

## Can you run a 36V motor on 12V?

Whereas if you are using an electric steer motor, then lower volts won’t be a good idea to use for the same. Therefore, its not suggested to run a 36V trolling motor on 24V or the 24V trolling motor on 12V as it will burn up.

## How many batteries does a 36V take?

The most common voltage in golf carts today is 48 volts. Some older models are 36 volts, and some newer are 72 volts. 48 volt carts can either have 4 12v batteries, or six 8 volt batteries. A 36 Volt Pack is seen on most older golf carts and has a series arrangement of six 6 Volt batteries.

## Will a 36V motor run on 24V?

Your 36V wheel would not even START to spin with a 24V power source and controller attached, even though the microcontroller would be very much alive. The way this is accomplished isn’t sublte. The same controller board is used in systems from 24V through 48V, from what I’ve had my ands on.

## What voltage is my Minn Kota trolling motor?

A Minn Kota trolling motor will operate with any lead acid, deep cycle marine 12-volt battery/batteries.
