1200W with lithium would get my vote.
But I have a real cart not a kiddy toy.


You should consider it. There's no trailer required to transport which should make backing up your car a little easier.

I don't need it any easier.
I just need my farkin garage door to get out of the farkin way so it doesn't get farked on impact.

How is the investigating going?

I have been doing a little more research as I think that I would like one when the foot plays up (I get gout every so often) and when I play social golf with mates that only cart (and I dont want to be the only one walking in a group if the numbers are odd).

Was thinking of buying myself one of these without the bag rack, with the cheaper lead acid battery. These batteries are rated at 250-300 charge cycles which means that it will last me at least 3-5 years as I wont be using it weekly.

When the batteries do give up the ghost, will then upgrade to Li-ion unit and have it last another 10, that is if I havent already decided to change up or give up golf or whatever.

My brother in law is quite handy at mig/tig welding and don't think that it will be an issue knocking out something that will work at a cheap cost base.


Alternatively can look at purchasing this one from Cob and Co in Wallan, Vic. for $1600 delivered to my nearest depot

How is the investigating going? 

 

 

On vacation atm :), but will investigate the cost of the bag rack once I got back. I don't think I can afford anything beyond $500-$600 mark atm, too much payable overdue this year  :ph34r: 

 

I am thinking either fixing the bag rack to the seat or replacing the seat with the bag rack....

well considering the lack of warranty on a couple of the earlier models I posted links to, I have gone a full circle back the SXT ones on offer as they are the ones that seem to have brand presence here and europe, and provide at least a 12 month warranty. 

 

 

Opening price-point for this one is $800 - 48v 1200W

Yesteryear's model for $650 ish - 48v 1000W

or the big kahuna for $1500 48v 1600W

cheapest way to mount might be to get this https://www.overstoc...15/product.html

 

it is a bag mount to the wall that might be easily converted for use on the scooter...

No. They either use a carry bag or turned a cheap 3 wheel buggy into a trailer
