...after using the
Mud Buddy motors in the
Mississippi delta and Louisiana marshes, we found Mud Buddy to be the
most reliable and durable motor of its kind. We and the guides we
hunt with have used the other motors in the past 30 years of hunting,
and no doubt, Mud Buddy is the best by far... ,,,having a TV show, we
can't afford breakdowns and don't have much time for maintenance...
Mud Buddy fits all our needs... ...other mud motors may look like the
Mud Buddy, but they are not the same. This rig is extremely easy to
turn, is well balanced and tough. We used Mud Buddy to film our shows
this year and put them through the test, running through slop mud,
Cyprus knees and for the first time in many years, inches of ice. We
have used the Mud Buddy motors for two years now and have found them
to be dependable and extremely easy to maintain. Our camo hats are
off to Mud Buddy...

If you are
shopping for a mud motor, save yourself some time and check out the new Mud Buddy 2002 models. I have been a duck hunter all my life and when people ask me what mud motor I use, the answer is simple, the Mud Buddy. Quality, performance,
low maintenance and dependability all in one package.
The Duck Commander
Being a co-host of "The
Hunter's Journal", and also being in the aluminum boat manufacturing
business, I understand the value of having quality equipment. I also
understand quality also means dependability and being able to get into
those tough hunting places. That is why, when I am filming a
television show or just plain duck hunting, my first choice in duck
hunting motors is the Mud Buddy. It is made of hi-tech material
and to tolerances unheard of in the industry until you guys came
along. The motor is different, it is built by engineers that know
what they are doing and most of all built to last. Mud Buddy is also
a wonderful company to work with, everybody is friendly, well trained
and knowledgeable. Thanks for making great products--your blinds and
motors are a welcome addition to the outdoor products industry.

Finally had a chance to get the new 13 horse Honda motor out and run
around on a lake and it works great. It pushed 3 guys around in very
shallow water like a knife through butter. I took it up to northern
Wisconsin for opening fishing season and all of my uncles awed over
the motor and I was the talk of the weekend.
I can not
wait until duck hunting this year and be able to get into the thick
of the marsh with ease.
To all the folks at
Just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate doing
business with your company. We have been building duck hunting and
fishing boats for years and know people want quality and good
service. Your service and sales staff are a joy to work with and no
matter where I go, on the duck marsh, or at outdoor shows, I hear
nothing but praise about your company, your duck boat blinds and the
Mud Buddy. So much so, today, the one motor and blinds we
exclusively place on our boats, from the factory to dealers, are from
Mud Buddy. Again, thanks for all you have done for

The Duck Commander told me
to give you guys a call. I picked up my Mud Buddy boat from your
factory last week and it is what every duck hunter should be equipped
with. The Mud Buddy motor is absolutely like he said, flawless and
one heck of a mud eatin' machine.
I would like to thank all of
you on the Mud Buddy staff for your help and advice.
My name is Gary Krop. I
purchased a Mud Buddy in the fall of 2001. It is the absolute best
piece of hunting equipment money could buy. I can now run in a
shallow river that is not deep enough for outboards. Improved my
hunting 100%. Please send me some of your window decals. Got a new

To everyone at Mud Buddy:
I am extremely impressed with your motor.
I, like some others was a
Beavertail dealer, and to make a long story short, I am now a Mud
Buddy dealer. I like many others learned this the hard way, but I now
know that your motors are technically advanced and far superior to any
other brand of mud motor in today’s market. And most importantly, it
is refreshing to work with a company that listens to its customers and
takes care of their concerns and needs. No marketing gimmicks, no
hype, just good products and service.
Mud Buddy’s frames, bearing systems and fuel systems are definitely
the real thing. And yes, your motor is the easiest turning I have
ever driven. And, I am pleased to have your impressive patented
bearing drive for my customers.
Your hard work has paid off
for all of us. It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to
you and without hesitation, I feel good about and highly recommend Mud
Buddy Motors to all my friends.

I just finished running my new 25 HP Mudbuddy for the first time
today. I am truly amazed at the difference in the MB and the Go-devil
I have run for the past 5 years. People at the
dock asked me for your number and I gladly tell them how to contact
Gentlemen: My friend, Hernan Cortes, bought a 24 hp. Mud Buddy more
than a year ago and it has made a believer out of me! I have owned a
Go-Devil for many years but my next purchase will certainly be a Mud
Buddy. The construction, design, and performance are real improvements
in the mud motor field and you are leading the pack. We hunt in the
Florida Everglades, harsh terrain, and this engine has met the
challenge! I hope to be in the market next year and will keep up with
any new developments, the Kohler 25 Gold looks like my focus right
now, I own an Alumaweld 1544 jon boat that should be compatible with
that engine. If you ever have any hats for sale please advise, I
would gladly purchase several.

We recently took a fishing trip to Bull Shoals and brought the Mud
along. Not only did it perform superbly in the shallow water, but we
also had a SHOW STOPPER! I believe every person in the camp and
that drove through stopped to ask Todd about it. My parents came along
on the trip and were amazed at the attention we were getting. I am
attaching a picture we took of our boat with the Mud Buddy on it and
our camp site. You can see the White River in the background.

Thanks for all your diligence on the creation of the "Mini-Buddy"
Light Motor System, your actions speak louder than the words of anyone
else in the industry. I have field tested the motors on our line of
duck boats and am "beyond" pleased with the results. To make a long
short, I have read the testimonials from others on your web page, and
ditto's for me on everything they mentioned. I personally tested all
other mud motors in the industry that were viable for our boats. Not
only is the Mini-Buddy the only true layout boat mud motor on the
market, hands down, the Mud-Buddy products are the best on the market.
The Mini-Buddy is truly the first line, in the next chapter, of the
"Midwest Style Layout Hunting".
Finally, no compromise, high quality Mud Motors for layout boats!

I just got done test driving my new Honda 24hp extra long shaft Mud
Buddy on my 16ft. Lund v-hull boat. Simply amazing! I typically hunted
big water as my boat was to big for the shallow stuff. That is not a
problem anymore. I pushed my boat through water today so shallow it
could barely float. I no longer need to hunt with a huge decoy spread
trying to pull the birds to where I am hunting. Now I will be hunting
where the birds want to be, back in the shallows, and away from the
Performance Goose Calls
Hey Mud Buddy;
The mud buddy
may not have been the 'first' engine of it's kind but
I must say you sure used state of the art technology to make it the
'best' in a hurry.
In my opinion the two most important features of a backwater motor are
durability and reliability. You don't want to break down or get stuck
in the remote marshes, bayous and swamps of Louisiana where I hunt and
fish. The mud buddy is not only tough and dependable but has features
like the swinging tailshaft that rides in the boat, not on the road.
And, it's its extensive list of exclusive features make buying a mud
motor easy, even for someone as particular as me. It is easy to see a
lot of foresight went into the design of mud buddy.

Dear Glenn & the
I wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with the design and
performance of the Kohlor 25 extended shaft motor I received last
I initially ran this on my low transom 16/51 and it out performed all
my expectation. I now have on my new 17/60 with a 20" transom and all
I can say is "WOW."
I didn't think it could get any better,
but it did.
I run the rocky Fox River by my house and it has held up great. I've
also powered it in the muddy backwaters of both the Illinois &
Mississippi rivers without one problem! Being able to get to those
"secret" spots where others can't has made duck hunting even better.
I love the ability to swing the motor into the boat which has made
long trips better & less stressful.
Thanks for a great product and keep up the great work!

Dear Mud Buddy;
At last!!!!!!!!!!! A mud
motor that a commercial guide like myself can simply turn the key,
advance the throttle and just go!
Guiding in the Louisiana
marshes in excess of 250 days a year, I need a mud motor that is
dependable, tough, and smooth. I need to get my clients to the marsh
and in the harshest condition and back, day after day.
Mud Buddy's had exceeded my every expectation. I used the rest and so
happy to have finally found the ultimate duck boat motor. Your rig is
by far so much better built, so well thought out, and generations
ahead of the rest. Like you said, your bearing drive is the leader,
it requires no maintenance. And I love your built in swivel tilt
assembly. No more need to adjust the motor, and no more worry about
tilting too far back into the boat like other models. As you know,
tilting too far back can cause engine damage and has always been a
worry until I got your motor.
It didn't take a rocket
scientist to see mud motors needed a new frame design and drive and
your unit is plainly built by engineers that know what it takes to
build the best mud motor.
And I can't say enough about your service. You guys built me a custom
handle, provided overnight service and provided just plain
"in-your-face" outstanding service. The people at Mud Buddy are

a marriage made in heaven, check out your motor on the new Gator Trax

Hey Mud Buddy;
Wow, I bought the 27 kaw
thru the boys at outland marine a couple of weeks ago ... lets just
say my friends and I renamed the motor to "BAMF" I cant believe what a
difference the new models have over the previous ones. I owned the 20
Honda for a couple of years and was not really satisfied with the over
all performance. now with the newer roller bearings and beefier
assembly these new mudbuddy's really are state of the art. I went
through a wall of cattails so thick that you couldn't even drag a
canoe through and I had 2 dogs and 2 buddies and all our gear in the
boat and went in about 60 yards or more, even had enough power to push
my 16x48 jon boat over a 2 1/2 ' muskrat mound. with all of us still
in the boat) that motor has some serious torque!
puts a whole new meaning to "lords of the marsh"
Dear Mud Buddy;
With location a crucial
element in TakeEm’s success formula, I wouldn’t be without my Mud
Buddy motor. Many times I’ve had to hunt a secondary location, because
my outboard motor couldn’t push my boat through heavy vegetation or
mud in route to where the ducks or geese were hanging out. This is no
longer and issue. It is incredible what these motors can push a boat
through! My Mud Buddy motor has surpassed all my expectations.
Tip: For consistent hunting
success, you need to be in the right spot every time. Since we can't
always predict the best spot when hunting new water, being mobile is
often the key to success. The energy and timesaving of a Mud Buddy
Backwater Motor is a huge asset in these situations.
Glen and gang;
...Just wanted to say thanks for working with Don at Legend Craft to
get me what I wanted... ...I can honestly say, that my new rig, "The
Bear," is the most awesome boat I have ever seen. I have already gone
places I had never imagined before. You should see all the heads turn
at red lights and boat ramps when I pull up with my new Mud Buddy and
Bradley Horton Mills
My name is Thomas Behney and I purchased a 13 Mud Buddy from you
awhile back. I can only tell you haw delighted I am with this unit.
It does all you said and then some. The quality is way above the
Go-Devil and Beavertail. I shopped carefully and nothing compares.
This unit runs so smooth on long trips. My hands don't get sore like
on my old Go-Devil. The bearing system is unbelievable strong and I
like not having to perform daily maintenance. I recommend Mud Buddy
to anyone that asks me about mud motors. When I have a question, your
staff is always there and helpful. Keep up the good work and I wish
you guys all the success possible.
