Slow Moving – Golf Trolley Running Slow
I have acquired a second-hand Prorider golf trolley problem being when going uphill it is very slow but upon reaching the flat full power seems to be restored, I have tried changing the wheels but still get the same response, can you help?
There could be a couple of things that can cause slowness in the golf trolley especially uphill. The first thing to check would be the wheel clutches may be slipping but this usually shows by the trolley not being able to drive straight. I would also check the battery condition. Lastly, the motor may have been damaged, this can happen if left with the motor on, say speed one, and held without moving i.e. against a wall or kerb. In this case, you can usually smell the motor, it will have a burnt smell coming from it, but this smell could be away if it’s been a while after happening. Hope this helps.
Noisey and moving slowly
My trolley has developed a major problem. The trolley makes a loud noise when I switch it on. It only moves very slowly – even with the speed controller set at maximum. Could it be the motor OR one or more of the clutches two-wheel clutches?
The trolley noise could be more to do with the gearbox next to the motor. If the golf trolley clutches test finds them to be working, then I would look toward the gearbox and connections. Try turning the wheels manually to see if when the axle shaft moves the noise happens.
