Default Shipping

Sometime in March I was told by a wholesaler that if they put in a order at that time to expect shipping in July. That delivery date will continue to get later based on when a order is place, Minnkota is apparently completing 100 a day don't know which models

The next level the dealers shipments receipt, will depend on when they ordered from Minnkota. Certainly big box sporting goods stores ordered early and deep direct. outlets go through a wholesaler.

It is really difficult for ship dates to be accurate. Add the in the number of 'priority" customers like pro staff as an example. Almost guarantee some are jumping ahead in line due to special favors too. Fact of life

Hope this clarifies why some are getting ulterra's and others not. Thinking stores receiving product now placed orders in late December or early January. Would bet the dealers placed large orders when they realized the demand of the product.

Sharing this insight so no one is throwing minnkota or your dealer under the bus.

I was getting worried that I would not get my 112 Ulterra 60" Link in time for a tournament so I called MinnKota directly and was told that they expect to have all Ulterra orders filled by the end of April. Said they are constantly switching production between the 80's and 112's to keep a mixture flowing out to the dealers. I have had mine ordered from Reed's since January, hope I get some good news soon.

Does the NEW Terrova foot control come with the SPOTLOCK button on it like the ULTERRA has?

No, the Spot Lock button only comes on the Ulterra foot pedal.

See Ulterra in action in this new video, covering the stow and deploy actions of the motor:

I am still waiting. I am getting nervous / anxious. I guess I am gonna have to give myself a bailout date so I don't get caught scrambling to get one before tournament time.
