I replace bushings and/or squirt them with lube at least once a week.

They're not bolt cutters. That's a crimping tool. I needed it to put on the ring terminals for the TM's power leads.

That's some Texas Size crimping tool. What size wire, 4/0???

They have rotory adjustments that go from 4g to HUGE. These things are strong. I use them for making battery cables for big stereo systems.

I switched a 9 for a 12, added nmea and mounted ghost all at the same time. It was a damn mess. Very satisfying when it was done though.

I could build a house with the tools I have out now.

It's what they call the Lowrance Trolling Motor.

It is the best one on the market and the OP should really enjoy it.

I removed an ultrex from my boat and installed a ghost and had no issues at all. Pretty easy job.
