Anyone ever broke the shaft on an ultrex? I did and I am looking to replace it? First off, can you buy a replacement? Second, how difficult is it?

I believe the shaft is lifetime warranty. A buddy of mine broke his and it was replaced by Minnkota.

The shaft is bonded to the center section at the factory.

If I read correctly that warranty only covers the original purchaser? That’s not me unfortunately

Broke 2 shafts, Each time it broke it was still intact but cracked very badly, if I turned a certain way the shaft would bend out.

First one was my very first outing with my new boat. 2nd time it took 3 good bends on separate occasions that cracked the shaft enough to make it an issue.

I thought it was lifetime of the product not owner. But I may be wrong.

A little birdie told me that the warranty is not only for the original owner. In fact, I’ve taken my Ultrex in twice and neither time did they even care to see a receipt from purchase. They ran the serial number and said “I’ll have it ready Friday”. I could have been the 3rd, 4th, or 5th owner, stole it, didn’t matter. They only wanted to see the serial number as it reflected the build date(beginning of warranty).

That was my experience at All Star in Garland.

When you say you took it in? Are y’all just taking it to a minn Kota dealer? I’m near Fort Worth, so any suggestions is appreciated.
