Outline of various golf trolley spare parts for sale.

There are various components which you can buy for your golf trolley. Below are the most common parts which tend to need replaced, either due to accidentally breaking, defective, lack of maintenance or simply worn. These are listed below in a particular order for ease of fitting. Also listed on with each is the rating out of 5 for the difficulty of fitting, this involves removing the original part and fitting the new spare part in its place.

Golf Trolley Battery Lead

(1/5 Easy)

The golf trolley battery lead is used as a connector from the battery to the golf trolley system. They are easily broken, by pulling the battery plug off the trolley and at the same time forgetting to un-plug the battery. This action is not uncommon and can pull the connection of the lead at the battery terminals. This tends to break the small black 3 pin plug connector at the plastic housing. Another common way of breaking the golf trolley battery lead is accidentally breaking the 3 pin plastic connector plug by placing the battery on top of it when putting it on the ground. With the weight of the golf trolley battery being anywhere between 4kg to 9kg and the motion of it can crack the battery plug.

Display Panel

(1/5 Easy)

This part is used to cover the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and allows to be used as the tops of the micro switches on the circuit board via a small plastic button cap. The display panel very rarely gets broken; it is more likely to just get worn over time with use, especially at the stop/start button.

Golf Trolley Wheel Clutch

(2/5 Fairly Easy)

Golf trolley clutches work by allowing the drive from the motor to be transmitted into the wheel and come in left and right specific parts dedicated to each golf trolley wheel. The Clutches can be broken but are more likely to be worn out rather than broken. A golf trolley clutch will wear faster on uneven surfaces or in dusty and dirty conditions with the dirt getting in over time to the spring mechanisms inside the clutch housing. The do break with severe knocks or kerbs but this is more rare to have a clutch failure under those circumstances.

Speed Control Switch

(2/5 Fairly Easy)

The speed controller switch regulates the final up-scaled voltage in the controller to give out a certain motor speed. The higher the current the faster the motor turns. The speed control switch tends to be easily broken by accident, this tends to happen when packing away i.e. Placing the folded up golf trolley in the boot of the car and it accidentally hits something at the point of the speed control switch. It can often go unnoticed at the time and not until the next time the golf trolley is used that it is found to either not function at all or more likely get erratic in its function. Missing speeds or not smoothly going up the numbers.

Golf Trolley Controller

(2/5 Fairly Easy)

Controller in an electric golf trolley works several tasks;

  • To step up the voltage and acts as a relay for the motor.
  • To govern the current for the motor speed.
  • Golf trolley controller can be a difficult part to determine failure and where and why it happens. The golf trolley control box works almost like a step relay so as to allow the small switches in the display PCB to upscale the 12 Volt current (Amperes) for the motor to function.

Display PCB (Printed Circuit Board)

(2/5 Fairly Easy)

Handle circuit board is for controlling the main functions of the trolley by the user. If the handle circuit board stops working it is more likely to be a malfunction in the circuit than any wear or tear, although there a couple of ways for the PCB handle circuit to break. The small micro switches are the only mechanical part or the circuit board and the small switch on the board can dislodge or stop working correctly.

Golf Trolley Main Wires

(4/5 Tricky)

Main golf trolley wiring is rarely worn out and any malfunction tends to be accidental. This can happen more often than not from closing folding up the golf trolley and catching these main wires causing a fracture inside the wiring. So its not always easy to find the break without specialist equipment.

How to Replace an Original Golf Trolley Clutch

Golf Trolley Clutch Information

Found on our support pages

Original video from 2007 of a basic wheel clutch removal and replacement. The newer style clutches are more advanced and slightly different in appearance, but do the same job with more reliable seal. This is to stop dirt and water ingress causing the mechanism to fail by either sticking or prematurely wearing out.

The original wheels were around 10 inches in diameter and three spokes. Some were difficult to remove the cross head screws and would burr easily due to the time and elements they had been exposed to over the years of use. Occasionally the screws were replaced with Allen bolts which did not damage on removal or replacement.

Golf trolley batteries

Comparing batteries

First thing to look for when comparing batteries for golf trolleys are:
Many companies claim 36 hole golf trolleys – this means nothing! What you should be looking for is the capacity of the golf trolley battery i.e. Ah . normally a 18-27 hole golf trolley will be around 22Ah and 36 hole trolleys battery around 33Ah to 36Ah capacity. The D.O.D. in and the cycle rating.

Help and Frequently Asked Questions Golf Trolley Batteries

For full support for your battery see below our tips and support for keeping your battery in best used condition. CAUTION for battery charging – Remember never run the battery fully down and out. This will damage the battery by killing off the cells within the battery, the battery will then have only around 30% of its original capacity.

Deep discharge

We recommend not discharging your electric golf trolley battery down too far, i.e. to charge as soon as possible after each use, the less is discharged the longer the life of the battery. It is noted this will damaged the battery by running the golf trolleys down and out! (and void your warranty). When then going back to recharging the battery it will not take the full capacity it was designed for and in some cases can half the capacity or often worse.

Understanding Golf Trolley Batteries

Understanding the workings of certain types of battery will help you give your golf trolley battery a longer life. Here are a few points which will help in this.

Battery Maintenance

THE GOLDEN RULE !

FOR LEAD ACID BATTERIES

The golden rule is with lead acid batteries; the less the capacity drops with each use, the longer the life of the battery – like topping up your petrol tank after each use and don’t let it go below a quarter tank. (written from 2004)

ALWAYS

Charge you battery fully especially when its new, make sure it is charged before using it. the manufacturer always charges the batteries before leaving the factory but the battery can discharge itself over time at about 40% a year.

NEVER

Run your battery more than its recommended for e.g. 18 hole battery keep to around 18 holes if you can. Our batteries are of the best quality and more than adequate for the job we have upgraded all our golf trolley batteries as standard equipment i.e. our 18 hole battery is 26Ah and a top quality manufacturer also!.

ALWAYS

If laying up your Electric trolley for the winter, keep your battery in a warm dry (to stop corrosion on the electrodes) place. Always give it a charge every couple of months, to make sure your battery is not run out of power.

NEVER

let it get frosted by lying in the hut cold over the winter months. OR let your battery fully discharge as running it down below 10% will cause irreparable damage to the battery. This means when trying to recharge, it wont be able to take the full capacity it is designed for and may be as much as 60% loss of capacity in Ah. due to a full run down discharge.

ALWAYS

Charge your battery after use and after every time the battery is used whether only for a few holes or not. A battery’s life span will be increased b y at least twice if only discharged to 50% or less compared to discharged to 75% or more. So always keep your battery charged to full before you use it.

NEVER

forget to charge your battery after every use. A battery run down lower will lose the amount of re-charge cycles left in its lifetime.

What Components Make an Electric Golf Trolley

Frame

Frame section is very robust designed to take any size or golf bag up to full tour cart bag. The aerospace grade aluminium alloy frame has not only striking looks (turning heads all over the golf course) but is very strong and stable on the course. The easy build system can be seen below and is very light and compact for storing. The wheels can detach to take even less space, although if storing in the trolley transport bag we recommend keeping the wheels on so as not to damage the trolley transport bag with the axle ends.

Electrical components

Top quality second to none electrical and electronic components were designed and manufactured for our Precision golf trolleys. Our top quality control box is located underneath the battery storage tray and is totally modular for easy access.

Battery

Batteries come in various power sizes and connected by a golf trolley battery lead. Normally electric golf trolley batteries are around 17 to 21Ah for the normal usage of one round or 18 holes of golf. Some suppliers have 28Ah batteries as their larger extended battery capable of 2 rounds or 36 holes of normal average golf. Our batteries come in for normal size at 26Ah. The 26Ah battery has been tested to well over 36 holes before showing a low reading on the battery LED display monitor. (WE RECOMMEND NOT TO RUN THE BATTERY AT THIS LOW LEVEL AS THIS WILL TAKE THE CHARGE IN THE BATTERY BELOW THE RECOMMENDED LOWER CHARGE LIMIT – POSSIBLY DAMAGING THE BATTERY CAPACITY SEVERELY!) As all our products are of top quality we specified this capacity of battery for our average normal use one round 18 hole electric trolley. Our extended battery is 33Ah instead of the usual 28 Ah battery sold by many of our competitors. We believe in a top specification for all our electric golf trolley products and components. We could specify cheaper, less power like many of our competitors but our goal was to have the best golf trolley on the market.

Wheels

Top quality wide based wheels not only are very attractive but perform to a green keepers delight by spreading any weight of your clubs and electric golf trolley over a wide tread wheel. our wheels are designed to be totally functional for grip and weight distribution keeping the golf trolley steady on the course in most situations. Easily removed if needed.

Designing

The general design of our trolley is specific ergonomically engineered to work with golfers and their needs on the course.

Digital Display

What makes our golf trolleys different is the attention to details which are designed for the golfer. our digital display is a multi functional display which can inform the user of the battery condition and state of charge, the LED read out display is capable of showing speed control, distance control and functions. The Precision models have a distance function which you can make use of at the side of the the green, tee or elsewhere. This instructs the golf trolley to auto remotely travel 10, 20 or 30 metres then stop.

History and Rules

Rules on Professional Competitions

Using a golf cart is allowed as long as the golf course has no restrictions on them. All amateurs and most professional golfers the only exception is in the top level tour players, in the European Tour, Senior Tours, USA PGA tours See using a Golf Trolley R&A

History

For the UK golfers the electric golf trolley was supposedly introduced around the early 80s by Powakaddy . These first models struggled for reliability due to the conditions a trolley has to cope with. From dirty conditions, hills, battery and electrical components, weather and lets not forget bad tempered golfers. The golf buggy or cart as known in the USA was introduced early in the 1930s but never really took off until the mid to late 1950s and first used for the elderly and disabled golfers. By the 1960s in the USA golf carts became widely accepted for the average golf club and player. As regards professional competitions the USGA rules for using golf carts are the same
