Tips When Purchasing the Best Motorised Golf Buggy
TIPS WHEN BUYING THE
BEST ELECTRIC GOLF BUGGIES
We strongly believe that when making an investment in an electric golf buggy that will carry your bag hundreds of kilometres over several years, the most important factor is quality.
Do not look at a buggy that is not powered by a Lithium Battery. How light it is and how quickly it charges are also important factors.

“YOUR NEW BUGGY MUST SUIT YOUR LIFESTYLE”
It's easier than you think!
It seems like every time you go online, youread something new about a motor or battery that would only confuses you even more. The number one rule is to look for quality so to simplify the search, restrict yourself to Australian made buggies.
Have you ever bought an appliance only to find out the warranty costs nearly as much as the product? Or maybe you bought a $1,200 phone from a company (we won’t mention any names, but it rhymes with scrapple) who then asks if you want to buy a protection plan?An electric golf trolley manufacturer who offers a three-year warranty on every part of their motorized golf caddy obviously has confidence in the structural integrity and durability of its parts and components. We suggest reading the fine print of the warranties of these electric golf caddy carts before you purchase your electric golf trolley.
All motorised golf cart brands offer a motor that is capable of handling the terrain you'd expect to see on a typical golf course. There may be some variation in the technical specs of the motor size, but this is usually due to the weight of the cart, whether or not it has a remote control, and the size and type of battery the electric golf trolley was designed for. The QOD’s motor is 180 watts and we have taken it up the steepest hills you can find on a golf course without any issue at all. We feel it’s a safe bet to assume every caddy on the market can climb all of the hills you will find on a golf course. The question then becomes, how long will it last? Which brings us back to the golf caddy's warranty.
We find there to be a very common theme amongst leading manufacturers of electric golf trollies, and that is aluminum welds made by hand during the manufacturing process, and shortcuts taken on cheaper plastic compounds. These hand welds are susceptible to weak joints from welding errors, and the cheaper plastics will more easily crack, scratch, and fade over time. A powerful motor and long-lasting lithium-ion battery are great, but what if the entire foundation holding the bag cannot handle the inevitable wear and tear it will face over the years of folding and unfolding, bumpy terrain (in those rare moments we miss the fairway), and of course the various weather conditions all of us diehard golfers find ourselves playing in from time to time? The QOD caddy cart is built from a durable nylon 66 compound which makes up that molded pieces, aircraft grade aluminum for the sliding tubes and axle pieces, and stainless-steel bolts and connectors holding it all together. This ensures integrity throughout the entire trolley and is why the manufacturer has no problem offering the 3-year warranty.
