    Re: Moving from Electric to Push Trolleys

    As don’t golf frequently at the moment I don’t miss it a huge amount. If I was back playing 18 twice a week then it would be a nice to have.

    It’s not an essential, a trolley is, but electric is a nice thing to have if you can afford it.

    Re: Moving from Electric to Push Trolleys

    I have a Motocaddy S1 electric and a M1 push trolley, my personal preference is electric due to ease of use, however I do use the M1 push quiet a lot but our course changes levels a lot so electric is easier. I would say there is very little difference in effort/time taken to assemble/disassemble either one.

    What I sometimes forget to charge is the skycaddie - or leave it in the car...so being able to run it direct from the trolley helps no end!

    Clic is a different shape but overall the take down/put up is almost the same as the s1.

    But it's obviously horses for courses.
    Same here. I have the Powakaddy fw3i. The battery simply clips in and out and is roughly the size of an A4 piece of paper and about 2 inches thick. I unclip it after the round and thats the only thing I take back in to the house. All my other gear stays in the car

    Re: Moving from Electric to Push Trolleys

    I too have both an electric (Motocsddy M) and a push trolley (Motocaddy s1 lite)

    I haven't used the push one for a couple of years. Found it was OK if playing a firm flat course (with a light bag) but quite hard going up hills or when the grounds soft

    If in the winter I don't fancy getting my electric one muddy I prefer to carry

    Yeah I too sometimes I forget to charge my battery after a round but, as it's lithium, a quick blast before playing does the trick

    Honestly I never even think about using the push one any more

    Re: Moving from Electric to Push Trolleys

    Not quite an answer to the op, but...
    I recently had to buy a new trolley, and pondered long and hard about getting electric. In the end, I decided to get another push because the exercise I get from pushing it up hills is about the only strength and conditioning I get all week. Don't want the legs to waste away in my dotage...

    Re: Moving from Electric to Push Trolleys

    I was recently in the market for a trolley and was 50/50 between a power or push trolley. I didn’t want the hassell of charging etc so when pushed based on the layout of my course. Had it been exceptionally hilly it would have been a no brainer.

    Maybe try and borrow a decent push. I cannot recommends the cube from motocaddy enough. Well made folds small and very light.

    Re: Moving from Electric to Push Trolleys

    I had an electric for about a year.
    The course I was playing wasn't really hilly enough to warrant it, just 1 minor pull up a slope to a tee otherwise gently undulating.
    So I ot a pusher.
    Unless a course I play regularly was quite hilly I wouldn't change. Probably because of the charging element, partly the cost.
    Even playing courses like West Hill last week, I didn't feel the need for an electric.

    I totally agree. Mine sits in the utility room and I simply pack it into the car as I go out of the utility door. I have a large cart bag and especially in winter it can be heavy with waterproofs, spare towels etc and I wouldn't want to push that. Having made the switch from carry to electric I wouldn't consider going back to that middle ground of pushing. The trolley lives in the boot so simply a case of putting the clubs and battery in. I think I's actually feel more tired if I pushed
