2021 Official Review: Motocaddy M5 and M7


Recommended Posts

You can use “manual” mode on these carts. When on bridges, by putting greens, etc. I set the speed and steer without the remote. Then back to remote when you’re in the clear!

Great start so far. Love all the photos and the depth you are all going into so far. Keep it going as we intently watch to see the progress! 
Personally I am not a big remote fan and I have tried them, but prefer having contact with rig, so the M5 is one that really has peaked my interest.

This looks great.  I am really impressed.  I am surprised by how user friendly this machine is. 

I will be curious to see how long the battery will last (storing charges for full rounds, etc.) long term before being replaced in real world conditions with Spring and Fall weather and storage in the garage, etc.

I will be checking out out well the battery lasts on the M7 during my second round tomorrow.  I usually charge after each round however now I will put two rounds on it and see how it goes.

Sorry if this was already asked/covered.

How do you handle going across small bridges? Sometimes with a manual push cart, I screw up and run the wheel into the side of the bridge when maneuvering. I could see myself screwing up worse with an electric cart. 

Low speed mode (setting 1) makes the cart crawl so it is much more maneuverable. This bridge has to be super narrow. Is it for foot traffic only? Or are you usually on your 6th or 7th can of swing lube by then??? xP

Battery life is great. I used it for 51 holes in 2 weeks with no charge and by the end I still had yellow battery status. The last 15 holes I basically set the speed on full speed 9 and jogged the whole time and it was a pretty hilly course.

Ok so almost got a whole round in but ran out of daylight. I did manage 15 holes in 2 hours by leaving the speed setting to 9 and jogging the whole time. Managed to scare off a twosome of old ladies in front of me and caught up with a 3 some in front of them. 

Got a good video of the DHC working well on a pretty steep hill.

So I thought I could do a burnout and launch the cart...sorry folks it wont work...without a wheelie bar...that the M7 has... @Motocaddy can we make this mod to my M5 for you know...testing purposes...stability and all at high speeds though it would help on going up steep hills as well at low speeds. You can also see the clutch in effect with just one wheel on the ground the other spins, must be some kind of differential or a clutch to protect the motor?

sorry for the sideways orientation but I can't figure out how to get it the right way. Also apologize for the giggling but I couldn't help it lol. After I picked up the cart, I jogged over to my ball on the next fairway @TBT I think you were asking about how it handles in the rough lol

Video heading back to the clubhouse after the sun went down to show how bright the screen can be. hard to tell in the video but I haven't charged the battery in 2 weeks and this was after 51 holes of golf. Still showed a yellow status. I then kept the cart plugged in and hit a bucket on the range for the next hour before heading home and still had enough battery to drive the motor and get the cart to my truck in the parking lot. definitely would have made it through the last 3 holes if I had enough light! Battery life is great on the M5. This is with Bluetooth on and connected to my phone.

I got my 2nd round in today without charging the battery and still have two bars left.  I'll be shooting for 3 days this Friday and see if I can make it without a charge.

interesting tat you guys have battery bars. M5 battery indicator just has colors and one bar but it reduces to empty. Different software I guess?

Oh yeah I brought mine out of the house ( I live in a Mobile Home) which was tight and down the wheelchair ramp. No problem and that was the first time I used it. I hate to toot my own horn but I have gotten good with the remote. Heck when I sit down and rest on the range I will mess with it to see what it can do. Since no one was on the range today I ran that thing all over the area. I even nicknamed mine Rover. One of the course owners told me to go on the range and get me some balls because they had not picked. I went out about 100 yards or so and picked up balls. Of course I took Rover and that Motocaddy bag has some big pockets. Filled up both side pockets. Rover did not seem strained at all.

Well I took on this test because MGS and Motocaddy had faith in me. I really appreciate the chance to try this out. Everyone knows I tried this along with my rehab. Well it is working. I have been going out to the range almost everyday. I noticed yesterday that I thought the caddy was slow and thought ????. Then I realized I had sped up nothing wrong with the caddy. So now normal walking I am on position 3.  Our course was technically closed today for aeration but I went out and hit balls. Noticed I was not as tired as usual. Did do an stability experiment=== We have lots of tree roots here. I ran it through a root laden area. Ran it on 2nd speed and it rocked and rolled some but never even tried to turn over. Really it is very well balanced and I had it loaded with 16 clubs and my orange whip. Hopefully in a month or so I can do one of my 5 hole rounds again. But I will say the Motocaddy has helped me with my rehab so far. Did not do any enterainment today but worked on some moves with it. Would hit balls and decide to change clubs and I would roll it up to me exchange clubs and back it back into position. 

This is awesome! Love it Stu!!

The big question here will be as the battery continues to decrease will you see a decrease in its functionality. Will it not go as fast will it struggle going uphill etc.

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.
