Bat Caddy Electric Bag Cart

Recommended Posts

This year the bag cart seemed to be more of a chore pushing/pulling it around the course than in past years.  It was really taking a toll on my legs, especially hills. After much research I settled on the Bat Caddy X3. No remote as I  wanted to keep at least one hand on to keep it from tipping over. 

Played my first 9 with it today and I must say I couldn't be happier with the Bat Caddy. I got the lithium battery and it had more than enough power, even used it to help me up on a couple of the steeper hills. Best part was after the 9 holes i could still walk....win,win.

My only issue is I believe it should have a swivel front wheel,  would make turning and direction correction easier, you wouldn't need to lift the front wheel.  Sounds like a great winter project,  modifying the front wheel to swivel. 

My bag was very secure in the cart, and the adjustable speed made it a very nice walk at a comfortable speed for me.

I am looking for a new and better remote electric cart. I have been using a Batcaddy X3R for the last 4 years and the frame is starting to have issues, the points that it rivets together, the rivets are falling out from the holes being stretched and worn out. As near as I can tell the fixed front wheel is the design culprit causing the problem. Has anyone had experience with a remote control cart not showing significant frame wear after 4 years of use? The Caddy trek R2, Kangaroo golf Hillcrest series, and the Motocaddy S7 all have swiveling front wheels that look like they would address the stress on the frame from turning. All are considerably more $$$$ than the Batcaddy X3R was. Do not mind paying more, but want quality for the $$$$.Has anyone had experience with these models? Is there another trolley that would be better than these I have not found yet?

I have had a Motocaddy S7 for 3 years now and it’s still going as well as when I bought it. I wouldn’t be without it and can’t recommend it enough. 
Have to add that Motocaddy customer service is absolutely fantastic as well. I managed to catch my remote and snap the belt clip so contacted Motocaddy to find out where I could buy a new one from and they replied quickly and sent me a replacement for free.
