    Anyone Own A ClubCar Or EZGO ??

    We stopped at a used golf cart shop today, most of what he had were 4 seaters.
    They were both electric and gas,, I was amazed at the size of the gas tank on the gas powered ones
    They must have a range of over 300 miles.

    So does anyone own one?
    Is $4,000 a fair price for a 2014 or 2015 gas powered cart?

    I know nothing about the electric, the seller said the gas have a little more power.

    He sold the optional big tires, that looks like a poor choice, power wise.
    The tall tires look like they would rob the torque, through reverse gear reduction?

    The store has a rather steep paved road directly behind them, the golf cart went right up with 2 of us on it.

    Hmmmmm,,, do you have any golf cart thoughts??
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    We have a Clubcar. I think.

    I guess it depends on the use. We have a small hitch on it so we can pull a utility trailer. This is the best thing ever for picking up sticks and basic yard work. No setting the parking brake and much easier to get on and off of. Compared to the tractor or ATV. Not to mention easier on the grass.

    Ours is electric and retired from a golf course. We have had it for probably 14 years I think. Just replaced the batteries last year but it works good. Not so much in the snow but in the spring/summer/fall it is great. Different tires might help the snow performance but it is normally just stored all winter.

    Not sure what they are going for to comment on the price.

    Where you missed out is a few years back I guess they qualified for a tax credit being an electric vehicle and that they can in many states be licensed for road use. After the tax credit they were free. If I knew about that when it was available I would have looked into getting a new one but didn't read about it until it was closed. Also not sure they can be licensed here in MN. So maybe it didn't matter for me.

    CADp -

    I own a '99 EZGO 36v. electric four seater in the winter Florida home. The only thing I've done is replace batteries and tires. Over this past winter, I upgraded the major wires from the stock 6ga. to 4ga.There are just four wires, the cart seems to have a bit more performance and the burnt wire insulation problem went away

    I'm intrigued about the gas carts, think that one would be a quasi-gator on the Ohio farm, but have done little more than wonder.

    I have an electric 2 seater, but have not be able to determine the brand. Supposedly I can lift it up enough to see under it and determine the brand. It is old, but works just fine. I bought it at an estate auction 2 years ago and it came with new batteries and new flat proof tires. I checked the price of the batteries on-line and the price I paid was just about what the batteries cost. It had been modified to put a carry all platform on the back which was just what I needed. Just used it today to run down to my neighbors a 1/4 mile south of me. I think I like the electric better because all I have to do periodically is plug in the charger. It has plenty of power, so I think that is a myth about gas engines having more power. In fact, on a golf course I went to a while back, they told me that the electric units were the only ones powerful enough to climb the hills they had on the course and they had no problem in doing just that with two of us on board. I also use it to pull my spreader/seeder and my Fimco trailer sprayer, which I did Saturday. I use the trailer sprayer to spray my gravel driveway and also my neighbor's gravel driveway to take care of the weeds. If I could have afforded a Gator, that is what I would have, but this does pretty much the same thing at a fraction of the cost.

    I bought this EZGO RXV last year for my dad to use. I paid $2400.00 for it. It is a 2015 and is 48 volt electric. It still has the original batteries in it. I'm not sure who told you the gasoline models have more power, they do not necessarily. In fact the gasoline models are not permitted in many campsites anymore and require more maintenance.

    This RXV model actually generates power to charge the batteries when going down hill. This also provides some braking effect.

    Ive got a 98 club car with a gas motor and yes they go forever on a tank of gas!! They use very little of it to begin with. Owned it for about 15 years. Only thing ive done is a few oil changes with spark plug, fuel filter and air filter (like $30 maybe) and i think 2 batteries. Im about to do the drive belt and starter belt as theyre starting to squeal but I figure 20 years isnt too bad on some belts!!

    I have two EZ-GO's gas models. 2006 Workhorse and a 2009 workhorse. I have the larger tires on mine, I can tell you that the 350 robin engine is plenty of power to move the cart anyplace you want. One thing you can do to increase the torque is to purchase a 1" smaller drive belt, which I did, this thing climbs anywhere I want around the farm. None of my farm is flat there are rocks and hills everywhere. I do think that $4000 is a bit steep. Most are around $3000 - $3500. I have had mine now for about 5 years.
