Golf bags are secured on a pushcart by using straps to fasten the bag against the frame of the cart. The Golf Bag on Push Cart also is recovered by a stand located toward the end of the cart that assists in locking in the bag. By stationing the bag on the pedestal, the golfer can balance the bag on the cart to allow smooth rolling of the pushcart as you play your round.
For the golfer, it is wise to ease the sole of the bag down onto the pedestal first then prop the bag against the frame of the cart. Usually, some guides hold the upper section of the bag so the golfer can save the bag using straps.
TYPE OF BAGS TO USE ON AN ELECTRIC OR GOLF PUSH CART
Two types of bags are commonly used with electric or push golf carts. The stand bag uses two collapsible legs that push out when the bottom of the bag makes contact with the ground. Stand bags are light, simple to hold, and are made for easy carrying over the golf course.
The second bag is a cart-style bag that is heavy and created with different pockets for storage. Although you’ll see pros on the PGA Tour use cart bags, their caddies carry the burden by toting the bag around the course. Cart bags have a heavy-duty sole on the bottom of the bag making them simple to place on a pushcart.
HOW DO ELECTRIC GOLF PUSH CARTS WORK?
Electric golf carts are sophisticated machines that use either the remote control or a control panel to set speed and determine direction when the cart is moving. Powered with either a Lithium-Ion or Acid battery, electric golf trolleys draw power from the battery to move the wheels in the direction and pace that the golfer feels best serves his round.
For carts with remote controls, golfers can easily send the cart ahead to the golf ball so that the clubs are waiting, ready for the next shot. Other electric carts that use control panels must have their path set by the golfer before they can roll toward the golf ball.
It is vitally important for the golfer to understand and test out their electric trolley before they hit the course so that they don’t have any problems that could delay their round.
TYPES OF BATTERIES FOR ELECTRIC GOLF CART
Batteries are the ability source of the electric golf caddy. They provide electricity to the motors that move the wheels and guide the caddy in either forward or reverse as the golfer needs. Batteries can differ in weight and add a large load to the cart because of the requirement to supply the extra ability to the caddy to carry the additional weight.
Lithium-Ion batteries weigh less and are more environmentally aware than other batteries like the acid battery. These Lithium-Ion batteries add around 12 pounds to the total weight of the electric caddy. Lithium-Ion batteries are costly but maintain their full-charge capacity for over 500 charges, a storage capacity that should last a golfer for many years.
SEALED LEAD ACID (SLA) BATTERY
Sealed Lead Acid batteries are the heavy-duty behemoths that most of us commonly imagine when we think of car batteries. These batters are large and exceptionally heavy as most SLA batteries clock in at close to 25 pounds. They are less costly than their Lithium-Ion competition but take a very long time to charge. The positive thing about Sealed Lead Acid batteries is that they are relatively cheap. Whether the SLA battery goes bad, then you can expect to pay only a fraction of the cost of the Lithium-Ion battery.
BATTERY ABILITY DISPLAY
One of the indispensable features of an electric caddy is a battery charge meter that is located on the display screen. This meter gives golfers an approximate percentage remaining on the life of the battery. This feature is very helpful when the golfer is doubtful whether the battery can last after a quick nine holes.
