    Electric Trolleys, Motocaddy or Powakaddy?

    Looking at a purchase tomorrow and am ready to purchase from somebody I know and looking for some advice

    Is the lithium battery worth the extra cost?

    And of the 2 brands, what would people say is better, or is there literally nothing to choose between them?

    Was looking at the Powacaddy FW3i and Motocaddy S1 Digital

    Many Thanks!!!

    ive the S3 motocaddy. its the only electric i've had. very good and the battery is well worth it, charges in far less time and much lighter than a conventional bat. my next one i will be going for just the standard version as mine has all sorts of extra features i just don't use part from the 5 min stop watch.

    I have the S1 Motocaddy and upgraded to a lithium battery about 18 months ago, I would recommend both.

    I've got the Motocaddy S3 which has now done just over 2000 miles with no major problems that i can think of.

    I had a Motokaddy M2 and it was crap .
    The motor was faulty and chewed three batteries in 18 months
    The customer service was s**** and kept saying nothing was wrong, got an independent test done and motor was at fault.
    My pro was good and traded it in for me.
    Gone back to Powakaddy.

    I was wondering on both, but the common opinion on here seems to be that Motocaddy's customer service far outstripped Powakaddys, so I went for one of them. We all have our own experiences, though.

    I had to charge my previous lead acid after every round on my S3, but my S3 pro lithium only needs it doing every 2-3 rounds.

    Motocaddy here too.

    Never had an issue and I hear many horror stories about Powakaddy. Saying that, my mate in work got a Powakaddy last year and has had no issues, if anything it also appears to be more powerful than mine going uphill!

    Hillbilly do good deals on lithium trollies, have you looked into them?

    I would say neither. Either Golfstream, or GoKart. Both from Kent, with both having excellent customer service.
    Forever trying.

    I love the Gokart, gave mine to a mate though

    Reason for the choice of the 2 is that basically this is an exchange deal where Im doing something for someone who is giving me something in return.

    Definitely a vote for Go Kart but if that's not an option I'd take Motocaddy over other brands
