Golf trolley pulling to the left

I have had my Pro Rider golf trolley for 7 years and it has started to pull to the left when going uphill or when I put extra speed on it. Also, the right wheel has come off, for no reason, a few times lately. Reading your explanations of why this is happening it looks as though I need two new wheel clutches, can you confirm this is probably what I need. I look forward to hearing from you.  Many thanks

With your golf trolley pulling to the left especially going uphill it is probably your left wheel clutch is worn and needs to be replaced. The right will be weak and you will most likely need to replace it also. Sometimes the other side (in this case the right wheel clutch) can be worn.  This only comes to light when the new left one is fitted, showing up the weaker right side. So it is always best to fit both golf trolley wheel clutches at the same time. They are sold in pairs (left and right) and are available on the website store.

There is a post explaining the few reasons the trolley can be pulling one side or the other.  If the wheels are not giving the same drive pulling power then it tends to make the golf trolley go off to one side.  It is always best to check the drive pins are in place and not damaged.  Also, the front wheel may need the alignment adjusted.

    My pro rider which I can’t fault for last 5-6 years goes great but recently doing 18 holes getting to 13-14 hole loses power wondered if it’s the battery needing replaced ? And where do I get one the lead posts are flat on battery can’t seem to see them online .

      Definitely sounds like the battery has done it’s life cycles and not holding the capacity to do the full golf round of 18 holes. It shouldn’t matter as regards the flat screw hole terminals, other batteries if poles should come with nut & bolt for your battery lead cable connection.

    i have a caddymatic i have just got it out to test it and it goes in reverse only switch the wheels over but still only reverse can you help.

      If the motor is running in reverse then changing over the wheels won’t help as they have clutches which make the wheels turn only one direction. What ever you do don’t change the battery connection leads over but it may be and most likely the motor plug (connector) has been connected the wrong way round.

      If the wheel clutches are fitted on the wrong side this is exactly what can happen. Quickly swap wheels to check
