Yea I'm going to have ole Rufus T Coaltrain on standby with his John Deere.  I'd hate to tote my electric cart back to my truck. 🤪

I was thinking about that.  Run out of juice on the 14th and have to get it back to the Stable!

Being that it is a Lithium battery I don't think that will be an issue. I know with older rechargeable NiCd batteries as the batteries lost charge the device would perform less (ie my old Makita drills get slower as the battery charge decreases). I think the benefit of Lithium batteries is that they maintain performance until they just stop working due to low charge. I have not see any decrease in performance as the battery got low and I played almost 3 full rounds on one charge.

Just an observation though on the speeds is that the numbers are not necessarily the speed setting on the ground but I believe more the effort put out by the motor (amps maybe?) I notice that on uphill if i want to maintain speed I need to increase the speed setting and vice versa on downhills. Also notice that on the same speed setting, the cart will move slower through rough than fairway. Has nothing to do with the battery level though.

I noticed that too yesterday when I pulled up the hill back to the practice tee. Now it was pretty loaded with 16 clubs my Skilz trainer balls and 4 bottles of water. I had loaded 40 balls in the 2 side pockets. Had to kick it up to speed #4 but that was because I was catching it but I believe it would have made it in 3rd gear.

Now someone brought up about the traction. It is an limited slip diff and if one could see the remote work they would understand, Basically it is set up to spin the wheel with least resistance. Sorry Jeep and hot rod fans it ain't a Detroit Locker or pin locked rear end. But it has to be that way to function like it does

Ya'll keep your fingers crossed as I go for round #3 without a charge today!  I'll take a pic of battery indicator post round to show bars/bar remaining.

Had fun with the MotoCaddy until the 16th hole. Battery was deader than a road kill possum. I had to push it back in and although it's doable, keep in mind the M7 is stout! Two days max for me henceforth and I'll probably end of charging it after every round.  It's so simple and the piece of mind you get is worth the effort.   

Here's a little video explaining the battery test outcome. 😉

At least it wasn’t far to push!  No more of those experiments with Seniors.

Are the courses you played on very hilly? I think the battery life really depends on the course conditions and your average speed setting used. Also if you are criss crossing across the course looking for your ball...xP

Yea it's has plenty of hills in my neck of the woods to climb etc.   Maybe Florida where more of the courses have flatter terrain it would have made the 3rd 18 without a hitch.

The beverage holder is a bit small, just holding a can of beer. Roger mentioned that he will be sending the XL beverage holder next week. Will see if it can hold my large insulated water bottle. I have seen some reviews online saying the beverage holder breaks easily so will report back on that if it happens.

Great pics!   Mine came yesterday evening and I will be taking the box to the golf course today and take a first and look at these goodies. 

We had a huge rain yesterday so it will be interesting seeing how the M7 navigates around during soft and wet conditions.  I'll report back post round.

Played Grand Canyon University golf course this week while traveling for work. Just a teaser pic until I get home and write the full review of the course and how the motocaddy performed.

Well mine got delivered and as Brian said these are packaged really well just like everything else that has come from Motocaddy. The first thing that I noticed is that even though these are plastic they are really heavy duty and well made. You can tell that they were built to last. 

The installation of all 4 pieces only took a couple of minutes and I've attached some pictures that show how it goes together (along with my dogs that needed some attention). Out of all 4 pieces the only one that didn't lock in with a screw was the cup holder but it seemed to be pretty secure. A couple of things that I think are worth pointing out is that the phone holder is adjustable in multiple positions which is great because I will most likely use this to take a few videos of my swing on the course. It also expands pretty wide and will fit my samsung s21 ultra with an otter box on it and that says a lot because it's pretty big. Also from the pictures it was hard to tell, but the scorecard holder actually flips up and goes under the clear plastic to protect it from the rain just incase.

Not at this point, but possibly in the works.  It's a nice feature to have, but definitely something you have to get right!

Pretty steady as I have found mine to be. LOL forgot to mention that wheelie bar is useful. The other day when I had mine really loaded I "gooched" it going up the hill to the practice tee and if not for the wheelie bar it would have flipped over backwards
