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

Yea the wheelie bar should be called the wheel of thrill!  I've had mine do a few wheelies and I know my mouth popped open like a kid in a snowball eating contest.

It is great to see Motocaddy commenting on these posts, seeing interaction with the company while our testing is going on really does speak to an involved approach where results do matter.  Didn't really happen with the product I tested and it is building confidence in the product and company.

The only thing that seems to be missing that I use regularly on my push cart is a loop or a ring, something that a D-ring can be clipped onto to hold keys or clip on a brush or a towel and such.  I golf with nothing in my pockets besides an ID card, an extra ball, tee and divot tool.  Everything else goes in the golf bag or hangs on the bag and push cart.

Cup holders really need to be bigger than standard as even some regular size aluminum cans are a force fit into a regular can holder (they are perfect size for slim cans I never buy) and big enough for insulated 20oz mug would be exactly right, I don't think anyone will ever make one for a travel coffee mug so it doesn't turn over and spill out the contents.

The OEM interaction is definitely a Plus.  
The Testing/Feedback is taken seriously by Motocaddy.

Yep it does have a great power to weight ratio. Now I learned something yesterday. I had gotten in a hurry ( Lord only knows why after all I am retired) and had installed the accessory pack. I had the bag loaded pretty good. I did not click the bag in properly which was entirely my fault. Also had an umbrella installed and open. I started up the little hill by the range and hit another speed. It jerked and the bag shifted up and on the wheel it went hard!!  It held fine and I realized my mistake and properly locked in the bag. Also learned something yesterday. If you have an Umbrella up and get a bit of speed the Caddy will wobble and on the remote you have to make corrections. It would be more stable there if you are on what I call manual with hands on the steering so to speak. 

Answered another question for myself yesterday---- With the accessory pack installed the Motocaddy stores just as nice as without it. Like the accessory pack. Everything worked great for me. Even though I did not play the scorecard holder came in very handy. I was doing an evaluation on some clubs I had built and for me I have to tinker and adjust. I take notes but anyhow the scorecard holder worked great with some file cards I had. Really worked good could stand under the shade of my umbrella drink cold water conviently located and use the little writing platform.

Thanks for the heads up on the umbrella Stu!   If a really strong wind pops up you'll be like Mary Poppins out there flying high. 🤣

Now that is an image... 🤣 

With the extra weight down low compared to my gear and setup, I imagine the Motocaddy cart would be stable in strong and gusty winds similar to what I have experienced in winds strong enough to make the ribs of my 72" umbrella push inward on the windward side and blow the rain horizontally making additional rain protection not just necessary but essential.

Well it never was in danger of tipping over because it was loaded. Had about 16 clubs plus my Skilz Trainer and Pro Striker. Had 4 bottles of water in the bag cooler and one in the cup holder. LOL it was sorta slipstreaming and like in an airplane I had to make a trim tab adjustment by flicking the left right buttons.

Thanks for the feedback! The XL cup holders just came in, we’ll be getting those out to the testers next week!

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. 😉

 

 

This brings up a good question, can these be charged via a 12v charger in the car?

Thanks for answering the question @BIG STU! I took all of the accessories except the phone holder off to store it and haven't had any real issues.

@Motocaddy said he is expecting some of the bigger cup holders to be sent out soon. I did try and put my 20oz stainless travel mug from Starbucks into the cup holder and it barely held it. Actually, while walking with the cup in the holder, it flipped over and did exactly what you mentioned, spilled out. It is a bit tall though so most likely the standard cup holder is not designed to hold a tall travel mug. 

Pictures of the score card holder with the slide out tee and ball holder since nobody mentioned it yet.

Motocaddy on vacation in Phoenix! well not really, working but managed to sneak in a few rounds. This is GCU golf course. Simple layout with nice flat tee boxes and some deep bunkers.

Then played Longbow golf club in Mesa.

Hmm not sure how that would work since there is no 12V adaptor Motocaddy sells on the website at least that I have seen. @Motocaddy any feedback on this one? I would assume if you had a 120V AC convertor it would work.

I forgot to mention this---- See to the left of the Umbrella holder Fish posted? Do not know if it was designed that way but the slot on the left my remote control will clip there and there is plenty of cord to charge the remote. That is where I clip mine and plug the cord up. In fact mine had enough cord to charge my phone while it was in the holder.

I took a couple of short videos yesterday (Sunday) for your viewing pleasure.  I'm getting better at maneuvering the M7 to desired locations.  The first video is showing how the battery can be installed after the bag is loaded on the cart.  The second video is showing off my new gained skills. 😁

 

 

Your getting pretty good  at maneuvering that thing. You been showing it off of the range too like @BIG STU?

Trust me if he had put it up on #9 he could have caught that riding cart especially if it was electric. Now around my course we have gas carts that will fly of course I am not the only member that knows how to bend a govenor rod either.
