The RyTek Marine RTG1856 Trolling motor mount is for the Garmin GT56 Transducer and was designed for the Motorguide Xi5 Trolling Motor or similar with a rounded nose cones.
Our dedicated MotorGuide Xi5 trolling motor mounts are purpose built for the Xi5 80 & 105lb thrust motor and sit tight up against all parts of the motor housing (no gaps to catch weeds!!!)
The RTG1856 is a fully guarded mount constructed 100% out of Stainless Steel and will take any punishment you can put it thru! This "Guarded" version works great for fishing in or around logs and rocks when you are worried about physically damaging the transducer from impacts. The transducer produces perfect images and there is no image distortion from the bracket guard.
While this is a dedicated mount for the MotorGuide Xi5 I have had MANY customers run the mount on other trolling motors with a standard round nose cone and the skeg on the same end as the propeller!!! The profile of the upper bracket may not follow exactly to the profile of the motor housing BUT it will work if the bracket physically can sit up against the housing. For those concerned about gaps with using the mount on a non Xi5 trolling motor...I have also had many customers use Black RTV Silicone to fill the gab between the motor housing and the bracket which looks great! There is a dimension picture below so PLEASE measure your motor and compare dimensions and make sure you think it will work before ordering! If needing more assistance please email or call me!
****Designed for the 80lb and 105lb Xi5 BUT Please confirm the dimensions of your trolling motor to the dimensions picture below to make sure your trolling motor will work with the mount before ordering!*****
Mount comes as shown in photo's below and comes with 2 Band Clamps/Rubber band protectors. You must re-use your existing transducer mounting screws/washers. Hardware kits are also available in the accessories page..
