Currently I am using a Clicgear 3.0 push cart, but as I play a lot of hilly courses I find myself riding on those course more often than walking and pushing the cart and I would really prefer to be walking on those courses.

So, I am looking for recommendations on electric carts.

I am not looking for a remote controlled cart, just a basic electric cart with good downhill control.

The following models from Powakaddy and Motocaddy seem interesting and are in the same price range ...

http://www.motocaddy...ectric-trolley/

http://www.powakaddy...y-freeway-fw7s/

Anyone using one of these, or would like to recommend a different brand of cart, am open to suggestions as will be spending close to 1K on either of them.

I've researched electric trolleys for the last couple of years but have yet to pull the trigger on one. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with either.

I live in Kangaroo Land. (Their factory is here in North Carolina.) They outnumber all other makes by 2 to 1. Expensive? Yes. Heavy? Yes. Clearly the most durable and utilitarian machine around. My friends who went cheap first have all ended up with a Kangaroo in the end. Mine is the non-remote which I bought off Craig's List ten years ago for a couple of hundred. Would I buy one new? Perhaps.

My buddy has a Bat-Caddy electric cart and loves it.  Has been very reliable for him.

I swear, these things are like Mosquito Bug Light Zappers for golfers.
Everyone that sees it rolling by itself just freezes, points at it and watches it for a 5-10 yards.  It's quite hilarious actually.

If you do not want remote control in my opinion nothing is more solid and reliable than the Motocaddy S1.  Get the one with the lithium battery for around 800 bucks.  I've had mine for about 16 months, maybe 175 rounds, and not a hint of trouble with it.

On my home course it is good for 27 holes with battery to spare. The one time I tried it for 36 it was getting very low at the end. On a longer and or Hillier course I suspect 27 would be the limit.  I was a little surprised at how light and easy it is to wrangle in and out of the car trunk without remiving the battery.  Only slightly more space and effort required then my old SpeedCartV1 although of course it does not fold quite as compactly as a Clicgear.  

The club where I used to be a member in England has several of these used as rentals.  They have stood up well to a couple years of not always kindly usage!

Love my Motocaddy S1. Have had it for over 2 years now with no issues at all. Even my wife can fold it up! Would never even look at another one.

Sorry for the dumb question, but what is the purpose of an electric cart that isn't remote controlled? Surely you are still just pushing it along most of the time?

No it motors along under its own power. There is a knob to set the speed, just set it to your desired walking speed and follow along behind.

You do have to nudge it left or right to steer it. Or lift up the front wheel to point it in a totally different direction, like a push cart. But no pushing required unless the battery dies (which has never happened to me).
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Remote control is a totally unnecessary expense. Cart moves on its own - you can just hold on and steer with your fingertips as needed. At times I don't hold it at all. You can even set the cart to go preset distances - 15, 30 or 45 yards.

Even if my hands are not on it I never get farther away than I can easily reach. I would be the same way if it had remote control. I've seen several remote controlled ones end up in bad places over the years.

Thanks for the feedback on S1 ...

Is this with the standard lithium battery or did you purchase the extended lithium battery?
If standard can do around 27 holes on a hilly course that would work great for me.

Yes mine is the standard lithium. I do not believe the USA importer carries the extended lithium.

I'm keeping my eyes on the E-Wheels since my Rovic is compatible but some of the hills (one in particular) at the course I joined this spring has completely drained the joy of walking for me.  I too will probably be giving it a stronger look around bonus/tax-return time this spring... just hope I don't end up having to pay the full $599 msrp.

Thanks for all the feedback.

I have finally ordered a Motocaddy M1 PRO DHC
http://www.motocaddy...lectric-trolley

It is going to take a few weeks to arrive as the DHC (downhill control option) was a special order item.
Will post a review of it once I have it.

I have used a Powacaddy with lithium battery for about 5 years now. It´s one of my best golf purchases ever. I could never go back to pushing my self again. I have two batteries because one battery only last 27 holes. A freind of mine has had a Motocaddy with regular battery for the same amount of time. It has worked very well for him.

Is there currently an electric cart that incorporates course GPS and other readily-available golf tech as a part of their product? And if not, is this a feature you would be interested in?

And a quick add, if it wasn't prohibitively expensive, would you prefer the bag follow you around the course (via blutooth and GPS technology), or do you prefer to have control of the bag?

Only if the cart would float . . . seen too many electric carts in the creek on my home course. ;)

Motocaddy and Powakaddy both offer carts with an integrated GPS (S5 and FW7s GPS).
Stewartgolf sells the X9 Follow cart which will follow you on the course if you wish, for around 1.800 if I am not mistaken.

I have a motocaddy M1 as it folds down to a compact size to make it easier to in the boot (trunk) of my car. My only complaint is that you can't get Motocaddy Winter wheels for the M1...not sure that's going to be an issue for you though lol.

My dad has owned both Powakaddy and Motocaddy trolleys, and out of the two he prefers Powakaddy. Purely because he's had issues with Motocaddy batteries, and never had that with a Powakaddy one.

I was given an older(2003) Powakaddy Freeway. I am using a Sun Mountain 4.5, and the upper bag bracket does not hold the bag very securely. I called the USA distributor for Powakaddy, and they don't have any replacement parts. Do I need to get a cart bag, or are there any other solutions? Thanks.

Gotta be GoKart. Mine has just come back from its first service after 2.5 years and well over 300 rounds. They replaced the wheel hubs (I'd noticed the wheels getting a bit loose) and apparently one of the motor couplings. £99 and comes with a new 2 year warranty.

I bought a used Bag Boy Navigator Elite last year and I'm loving it! Lithium battery that lasts for 18 holes with plenty of juice left. (Haven't tried playing more than 18 in a day with it.) Folds down compactly, remote is intuitive to use, keeps stats on round time and distance. Only problem - hard to find. I had to scour "the bay" for a few months before one came up for sale. Pounced on it immediately and haven't looked back.

Played first 18 hole today with the MotoCaddy M1 Pro (DHC)

It had plenty of juice left after 18 holes, though the course I played did not have much hilly terrain.
Will post a review of it shortly once I have played a few more rounds.

I think the descent control is absolutely essential unless your course is very flat. I have the S7 with remote but is does not have DHC. It is extremely frustrating to use. Perhaps I'm bitter as it ran out of battery 22 holes into a 36 hole event yesterday and I'm still feeling the effects of carrying my bag for 5 holes (NB learn to uncouple the wheels so it can freewheel). I wound up hiding the trundler in some bush and carrying until I reached the turn.

I have had a Cart Tek 1200R for the past 8 years but they discontinued it recently.  SLA battery needs to be replaced annually (I walk ~75+ rounds a year, hilly course).  I’ll be looking for a new one soon.  Remote control very handy.  Their customer service has been outstanding.  
My question is if the M1 tends to go off course on an uphill climb if it’s off on its own or do you need to walk behind it to guide it?

Gotta be GoKart. Mine has just come back from its first service after 2.5 years and well over 300 rounds. They replaced the wheel hubs (I'd noticed the wheels getting a bit loose) and apparently one of the motor couplings. £99 and comes with a new 2 year warranty.

I have been considered ordering a GoKart and having it shipped to the U.S.!  I have not seen one in person, but from some reviews and videos I have seen, I love the simplicity and build of the model.

You do need to guide it if it goes off course, so you do need to walk behind it to steer it if it veers off it's set path.

There is another option that it has, you can send it on its own in a set direction for 15 or 30 or 45 yards, this is very useful as it will stop on its own after that distance. So, even if it veers off a little, you will be fine.
