6hp Kicker??... Please help...
I just bought a 4 stroke 6 hp. Tohatsu motor two seasons ago. Tohatsu, is making all the 4 stroke motors below 40 horsepower for Mercury and Nissan. Same motors, different wrapper, different PRICES!! I wanted a Merc to match my 90 Horse,but decided save a few hundred $$$ and went with the Tohatsu.
Depending on model, some come with an alternator to charge batteries while trolling.
Hit me up if u have any questions!
I’ve had several low-hp motors that I’ve used as kickers over the years and never had a problem with the mounts/brackets. With that said, I don’t enjoy going out in rough water so my boat doesn’t get beat up very bad.
So to answer the question if it vibrated? No it did not, it actually ran very smooth. Like others have mentioned the mount on most small motors are very poor and can not handle the pounding when the big motor is running. To eliminate that concern I mounted and after market manual trim system that was very robust. It was about $150 but don't recall the name. But it locked it in the up position very well and released it for use easily.
So it can be done.
I have since moved to a larger rig with a 9.9 Pro Kicker
