Does anyone own the Powakaddy CT6 electric trolley? If so does yours make a whirring sound when you have the motor running? The reason I ask is because my friend has the Powakaddy FX and his is silent when has his motor running when the cart is in motion.

Just wondering if mine is the norm to make a sound when running.

Go on YouTube .
Noise can come from a lot of places .
Motor ,gearbox , wheel hubs etc.
A service might identify it might just need greasing.

received this prompt reply via email:

Thank you for your email. The motor fitted to the new FX/CT range trolleys is a new more powerful 30V Motor, historically we have relied on a 12V Motor.

Both motors do take time to bed in when they are new and of course due to the power difference the period of time for the bedding in of the 30V motor is slightly longer, during this time the pitch of the motor is slightly different to a well bedded in motor the same was true of the 12V motor.

Never heard of that before.
Normally a new electric motor is silent .
It starts getting noisy when it’s worn.
Maybe they don’t bench test and run anymore.
