Feature Review - GoKart Golf Trolley

By: | Mon 06 Aug 2012 | Comments


GoKart Golf TrolleyGolfshake recently featured some of the electric golf trolley's on the market and following on from this I got the opportunity to check out the standard speed control electric trolley from GoKart.

The initial set up is easy; a couple of clicks and you're pretty much ready to go. The instructions are very simple to follow but be prepared to allow the battery a full 8 hours to charge, it will flash green when it's ready to go, go go!!  and you can then get out on the course.

On the course it's a dream, I tested it in extreme conditions and it tackled thick wet rough and standing water like it wasn't even there.

The GoKart standard speed control model has a simple roller on the handle to adjust the speed, which makes it really easy to make the trolley match your walking pace and with completely variable speed it was just as easy going up hills as it was going down them

At the end of the round, it didn't take long to remove the battery, fold down and get it back in its case. (Which was great because it was raining heavily and I was in a hurry to jump into the car!)

What I love about the GoKart is its simplicity in design, set up and in use including the shift up for speed up, shift down for speed down. It also folds neatly and compactly, is easy to pick up, easy to carry and it really is a delight to use.

With a choice of 6 different colours, 18/36 hole battery options (weighing 6.5kg or 8.5kg), there is something to suit everyone. GoKart also offer additional accessories that are also available in the same colours which include umbrellas, hedgehog wheels, bags, bag rain cover  and travel cover, or maybe the seat takes your fancy??  Admittedly there are lighter trolleys on the market but this will be overlooked, as previously mentioned it's so easy to carry.

The GoKart battery includes a 12 month warranty and if you're not happy with the trolley (unlikely) GoKart offer a  28 day trial option.

With a starting price of £244 for the standard speed model that I tested, GoKart trolley's are very competitively priced with other trolley's on the market, so if you're looking for a portable, robust and reliable trolley it's definitely money well spent.

As well as the standard speed control I tested, there’s also an ‘Automatic’ version available for an extra £40. With that one you don’t even need to move a speed roller to control it – the trolley just accelerates and slows down to match your pace. We’ll take a look at that one next time around but by all accounts it’s pretty impressive!

Highly recommended.  For more information visit www.gokart.co.uk
