    Is smug in the eye of the beholder? For me it's as good as having a deaf mute caddy and, yes, you can stroll down the fairway with your hands in your pockets because YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUSH THE TROLLEY, that's the whole idea. Why more folks don't use them I don't know.

    Re: Protrolley Remote Contol - brilliant!

    RIP Protrollrey. My beloved remote control trolley is dead. Yesterday I had a lot of trouble switching it on & probably needed a new control unit for the handle. Having eventually got it switched on I parked it while I went for a coffee, not daring to switch it off. When I got back to it smoke was pouring from one of the motors, which I had to extinguish with one of the shoe cleaning airlines.

    Worst thing is that the only company importing them into the UK has gone out of business. There are other remote control trolleys available but all seem to have reliability issues & the Motocaddy, the only established make, is £800. So I'm off to buy a Gokart Auto today. Next best thing but I'll really miss strolling down the fairway, hands in pockets & navigating around the white lines they put around the greens in the winter.

    An outpouring of sympathy would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Protrolley Remote Contol - brilliant!

    In actual fact, I didn't buy a GoKart. I had a quick look at Ebay & found an identical one to mine, only used three times, for the price of the Lithium battery it included. Then, an engineering genius who worked at my local range (no longer, unfortunately) tracked down some spare parts & repaired the original, which has spent the last 2 years & 9months in the loft.

    Yesterday, my trolley wouldn't work, one of the motors has failed. I took the original out of the loft, installed the battery, & it wouldn't switch on, despite working perfectly when I put it away.

    So, on Monday, I'm off to see a friend, who is Motocaddy dealer, to buy a new or used Motocaddy remote. He will also be able to make one functioning trolley from the two I've got which I'll sell, together with a practically full set of spares!

    I must have a remote. I hired an electric trolley from the pro yesterday & hated having to keep my hand on it for most of the round. Still can't understand why more people don't like remotes.

    Anyone want to buy a Protrolley?

    I have a standard GoKart and I like it for its simplicity. I just want a trolley to carry my clubs reliably without all the whistles and bells.
    For me the remote control units are just too complex with extra things to go wrong (remotes, extra motors, sensors, etc.)
    I'm glad you enjoy yours but for me its more than I need or want.

    Re: Protrolley Remote Contol - brilliant!

    Further update. I decided to have both trolleys repaired & they were duly returned to me yesterday. "Just give them a try" said my repair man friend. The one which previously wouldn't switch on wouldn't switch on, despite having worked perfectly on test. The other one, which would only go around in circles, lasted 6½ holes this morning then recommended circling. I had to walk in from the monthly medal. I was 12 over after 6 so I think that'll be another .1 back.

    Don't know what to do now, I really want a remote.

    I have taken the plunge & bought a pre owned Motocaddy S7 remote from Motocaddy with a 12 month warranty. It was £300 less than the rrp of a new one.
