Does anyone have a Tesla model 3? Does this fit in the trunk along with a set of golf clubs without having to take the wheels off the moto M7? If you have a picture also that would be awesome. Thanks

Depends on the vehicle. If I clean out the trunk on my S-500 it will fit with a mini staff or Motocaddy bag. As SOP I put the folded up Motocaddy in the back seat wheels attached. No problem at all.  If when I need to charge it I can set it up to charge in the car. I have an inverter plugged into one of the back seat cigarette lighters. Have not had to use that option yet because the one time I charged it I did it at home. Did not need the charge I just wanted to guage battery use. I do take the battery out as the instructions say. The battery sits nice in the floorboard under it. The Motocaddy slides out with no effort even in the state my back is in. Unfold drop the battery in plug it up and go on after placing whatever bag I have that day and like they say motovate on over to the range or putting green

Hey hey hey we don't all live by the cool ocean counties. Some of us live in the desert counties where it gets up to high 90's low 100's in the summer!

Even though we have ocean breeze here on the right coast oops mean East Coast the humidity is what gets us. For Ole Gray and the Georgia boys inland the humidity is worse.  In the summer I can go 30 miles inland and the humidity is killer. I have been there enough the desert heat is dry kinda like a furnace. Yep it dry but hot

Yesterday I finally got around to doing a front end job on the M7. 😁   I've been putting off doing what I found out but didn't know until yesterday, how simple it is to resolve pulling left or right.  There are two little wheels or discs you move clockwise or counter clockwise and that's it!   Easy Peasy to adjust  pulling to one side or the other.

Do not know what happened above. Dreaded double post.

Next is sorta embarrassing. Somehow I managed to turn the Motocaddy over and not sure how. Had did a big range session and had my Titleist Mini Staff bag on it with my 690 MBs in it. Did a extended range session for me. Went to the clubhouse to use the facilities. I did take the remote in with me. I do not honestly remember locking it. Came back out and found the Motocaddy turned over wheels sideways running. All the old fart Mens groups sitting at the tables laughing. They said it just started and ran jumped the curb and turned over. I do not know if I hit the go button on the remote or one of them messed with it. I righted it and no damage. I ended going back to the range no problem. Usually I hang the remote on the umbrella slot and lock it. What I do now is reach down and un hook the battery. If those old farts attempts to mess with it they do not have the sense of effort to plug it in. But then again the test goes on it is tough. So we know now it will survive a flip. LOL one of my old racing buddies will say " if it can be turned over Stu can do it" Yeah I turned a car over one night on the straightaway running by myself. That had an explanation I was setting the springs to get into the next turn and the RR tire blew and the rim bit into the dirt. The Motocaddy turn over had one of two reasons and so I eliminated both possibilities. Nothing in the design just human interference. And trust me if I have have heard the story one time I have heard it 50 times about the self propelled carts running in the lake somewhere. I told one of the old farts the other day that you must have been one of the 50 people around here standing around watching  that.  The story starts the same way always " When I was up North I saw" 

Yikes!  We'll have to work w/ the engineers on a future "Big Stu Mode"!

So an update today. I noticed that the glass screen protector on the GPS screen was chipped on the top edge. Would take pictures but maybe it was foreshadowing because I dropped my phone onto the edge of the toilet earlier and it cracked my screen and now half of it is unresponsive. It did go in but luckily it wasn't in use at the time... @Motocaddy do you know if we are able to order replacement screen protectors? Not sure how this happened but I imagine it will happen with a lot of users as the cart is being loaded/unloaded and maybe from banging clubs etc. And no I did not drop it on the edge of my toilet...

I haven't had this happen with the one I'm testing.  

About 8 rounds done now with new cart and it's still stopping randomly. So I guess its going back again. Right after this coming weekend and its golf trip away. 😁

 

I don't know what else I can do apart from keep sending them back. The retailer is not interested since I've had a replacement from Motocaddy. I've tried a Stewart and it's much, much worse than the Motocaddy. I like the trolley - I just can't accept that it has this fault for the price.

 

Carrying is not an option, and I've spent well over 100 on trolley rentals since this has been in for inspection.

Has the battery been checked?

Maybe. They send me back the same battery with a new trolley. Assuming it is part of the diagnostics checks. It only cuts out in remote mode though. I’d have thought if it was a faulty battery it’d cut out in any mode.

I’m going to end up having to get one of these things, had to play quite a bit of cart path only golf lately and an electric trolley would make that easier, plus the Doc says I need to start walking more.

I have looked at these and a few other brands…wish there was somewhere local to see them in person. @Motocaddydo you ever sell refurbished units?

Hi TBT, I'm sure we will in the future, but new enough to the US that we don't have any refurbished at this point

I have definitely seen better scoring walking with the cart. Last 2 rounds I played in a cart after walking for a few weeks and it threw me off my rhythm. Plus it is better for your health.

I might have mentioned this already somewhere on the forum but one issue with the Dry bag is that it does not fit in my SKB hard travel case.

61DgCXOOflL._AC_SX425_.jpg.c6026967a2d74d2205fe6eb02883b56f.jpg

I was going to put it in the case for my roadtrip to Phoenix last month but noticed that the carry handle at the top sticks out too much and the case wont close without seriously deforming the carry handle. I could put in upside down but that would risk damaging my clubs (although, with the way baggage handlers throw bags around it probably wouldn't matter!) I have a trip to Dallas next week and unfortunately had to switch to my Datrek bag which I have travelled with many times. Just noting in case anyone else travels with their clubs often. Other than that and no drainage holes for the cooler compartment (probably to boost water proofing) no other issues with the Dry bag!
