The MotorGuide X3 Hand Control Pontoon Bow Mount was designed to deliver better performance and durability for anglers looking for the best value in the 40- to 70- pound thrust range.
The X3 offers best-in-class steering performance. A dual cable pull-pull steering system eliminates slack, while the innovative patent-pending Variable Ratio Technology reduces torque steer feedback and improves responsiveness.
Digital Power Management Technology
MotorGuide Digital Power Management Technology delivers precise variable speed control and longer run time. This technology monitors your motor's amp-draw, heat dissipation, output, and other vital parameters, resulting in a cooler-running, more durable motor with an extended service life. Digital Power Management is a self-contained, sealed module in the lower unit that brings all vital motor components together in one protected location, while eliminating outdated analog circuit boards and their related components. This technology allows you to dial into the precise speed you are searching for, and in turn results in longer lasting battery life.
The X3 mounting bracket is built tough with aircraft-grade extruded aluminium to minimize flex and provide precision control under high-thrust.
Rugged Composite Shaft
The larger diameter shafts are rugged and corrosion resistant, paired with a durable stainless steel outer shaft. Special composite construction provides greater impact protection and is backed by a lifetime factory warranty.
Precision Response Steering
The X3 offers best-in-class steering performance. A dual cable pull-pull steering system eliminates slack, while the innovative patent-pending Variable Ratio Technology reduces torque steer feedback and improves responsiveness. A newly designed and reinforced foot pedal also provides better feel and control.
Variable Ratio Technology
Composite Locking Pins
By improving these frequently worn parts with modern composite materials we have exponentially increased durability at the most common failure point. The all new pins also eliminate annoying metal-on-metal "clicking" which only adds to the already stealthy nature of the X3.
Powerful Dual Blade Propeller
Comes equipped with a 2 blade propeller for maximum power and weedlessness.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
A parasite that caused a massive fish kill in Montana’s Yellowstone River has been found in at least seven other rivers in the state, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle . Scientists with the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department made the find. So far, the parasite has been confirmed in the upper and lower Madison, East Gallatin, Bighorn, Stillwater, and Boulder Rivers. It had already been confirmed in the Jefferson and Shields Rivers. The microscopic parasite causes proliferative kidney disease, one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout. The effect of the disease on Yellowstone’s fish populations is exacerbated by other stressors like near-record low flows, consistent high temperatures and the disturbance caused by recreational activities.Read More
It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.Read More
