Minn Kota currently offers props in the following categories:

  • Pre-1994 Props
  • Power Props
  • Weedless Wedge Props
  • Weedless Wedge 2 Props

These props are not universal. Some specific prop models are compatible with most trolling motor models, but none of the props will work with every single motor.

Some prop models aren’t compatible with certain trolling motors. The Weedless Wedges and Power Props, for example, won’t work for Minn Kota’s EO and Engine Mount motors; the Weedless Wedge 2 will. The Pre-1994 props won’t work on any post-1994 models.

Another factor is size. Different size trolling motors need different size props.

The Weedless Wedge, for example, comes in three sizes to fit motorheads ranging from 3 ¼ inches to 4 inches. So even if a Weedless Wedge is compatible with your motor, you’ll need to make sure you get the right size.

So, exactly which props are compatible with which motors?

Let’s check it out!

How Do You Replace a Minn Kota Prop?

To replace the prop on your trolling motor, you’ll need to collect a few items:

  • Open-end hand wrench
  • Torque wrench (if available)
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Small mallet or hammer
  • Replacement hardware (if necessary)
  • Replacement prop

Before you start, it might help to watch a tutorial video below to get a good visual of the process:

How to Replace a Minn Kota Trolling Motor Prop

Once you’re ready to begin, follow these steps:

  1. Hold the prop shaft in place with the flathead screwdriver. Using the appropriately sized hand wrench, loosen the prop nut, then finish unscrewing it by hand. Remove the washer behind it.
  2. Remove the old prop. If it feels stuck or you have any trouble getting it off, lightly tap it from the backside with your mallet or hammer.
  3. Remove any debris from the space behind the prop. Examine the area for damage. If the prop itself is damaged or doesn’t seem to be working right, you may have a broken drive pin, which you’ll need to remove and replace before putting on the new prop.
  4. Slide the new prop onto the prop shaft, ensuring the blades are aligned with the drive pin.
  5. Replace the washer and nut. If desired, you can use the new hardware that came with your replacement prop.
  6. If you have a torque wrench, set it to 30-inch pounds and use it to finish tightening the nut. If you don’t have a torque wrench, use the hand wrench to tighten the nut securely.

That’s all there is to it!

Conclusion

Not all Minn Kota props are equal, and they don’t all work for every trolling motor. If it’s time for a new prop, using the compatibility chart above will help you select the best one for your unit.
