Wiring diagram for Die Hard 28 lbs thrust trolling motor

I was given a Die Hard trolling motor. The cover was taped on and when I opened it I found all the wires were unconnected. I connected it to a battery and the motor runs. There is a 3 way switch on the cover (Rev-Off- Forward). With the power connected, the motor does not run in Off. It does run in Forward and Reverse in the appropriate directions. There is a variable speed switch with a tiller handle with Off-High-Med-Low positions. The motor runs in what appears to be High even with the switch in the Off position. I have tried every wire combination but I can't get it to operate like it is supposed to. Any one have a copy of the wiring schematic for this motor? Again, it is a Die Hard 28 lbs thrust trolling motor. There is no label with a model or serial number. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave Haralson

It's probably a Minn kota with a die hard label. Call Minn kota and ask them.

Motorguide Trolling motor has low thrust in all five speeds


I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.

I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.
