Picked up a cart yesterday for the lease. I'm going to attempt installing all the mods myself. It's a yamaha drive. Had them install the camo wrap. That I was not doing. Not enough patience for that. The flowers were for the wife. It was our anniversary yesterday. I got her a golf cart!!



Installed the mirror and basket last night.





Tonight I'm going to install the windshield. If you are going to lift it should I install lift before rear flip seat or does it matter?

Man I want one of these! My issue is this: Two of my stands are at the OPPOSITE side of my lease which is probably 1-1.5 miles round trip to and from. What kind of distance are you guys getting in a lifted 48v cart on fairly flat ground? I'm talking about something that has a stock motor, probably and upgraded controller and solenoid and cables, around 23" tires, and no more than a fold down seat and a bow rack to keep it light(er) weight.

You should get well over 10 miles.

Man, that shouldn't be a problem at all on flat ground. Plug her in at night and roll. Most carts can do 36 holes of golf and although not lifted no issues. My lifted 48v stretch goes miles without recharge--as does my 48v electric gator.

We hunt on 1100 acres and last weekend I hunted three days without a charge and not problem. I do not floor it every time I am in the cart and we "Creep" along so not to stir up the lease...but drop off 3-5 guys in different stand on opposite ends of 1100 AC...no problem.

I have a 48V club car lifted and all kinds of goodies installed. Normally in the summer I get around 20 miles on a full charge and in the really cold weather I get 12-15 miles. This is with 2 passengers, hauling feed and stuff etc. our lease is 70% flat and 30% hills.

I usually just plug it in between hunts and at night just to make sure I'm fully charged. It's best not to let the batteries drop below 50% charge on a regular basis.

You are actually using it in the least efficient way like that. The slower your motor runs the higher the amperage.

I have a gas club car. I have abused the hell out of it and it is holding up great. I have put 350 lbs of corn on it with no problem. It handles most mud that my 4 wheeler can. I plan to upgrade to a ranger when this one is dead but I can't seem to kill it. The gas is pretty quiet and I don't worry about the batteries dying 1mile from camp.

I would think gas would have more benefits than electric is that correct?

Depends on your needs. For a cart that I had to use on my lease I wouldn't trade 1 electric for 2 gas carts. No noise or smells with the electric. Unless you don't have a way to charge it at camp then you don't have much choice. I have gone all over 1500 acres and not run mine down before and it was rugged terrain.

How much do yall think the average price is for a used cart and the mods if you do them yourself?

This will all depend on age of batteries, year of cart and if it's been partially or fully restored. I bought a partial restored 10' model with brand new Trojan batteries for $2300. Mods I'll be 2k+ when I'm done. I'd say 5k or under you did pretty good. When I'm done with mine he had one for sale almost identical. It was 7k. I decided to do the work myself for a small project.

So the price is still small compared to a Ranger then

Stay away from the carts with 4-12 volt batteries. Their run time is not good.

It is a huge trade off. I just sold my crew 800 to go to a golf cart. You give up everything to be quiet. I still haven't worked out the little noises with the cart I want to, but it's not too bad. You have to think power, room, hauling and suspension. I literally crawl with the cart at the lease. The cart will do what I want it to for now. I will sell it when polaris comes out with an ev crew. They say it's not in the works right now.

I've never done it but they do sell a kit to do it so it shouldn't be too difficult.

Awesome. Thanks for the info guys.

I actually measured the distance yesterday on google earth and it is 3.75mi to the stand and 3.75 back. I want the quietness but it looks like I may be back in the market for a Jeep Cherokee XJ.

Yep these electric carts are stealthy quiet. I've driven up on tons of critters since getting mine.

Unless I get on a really big lease, I can't see going back to gas.

I can't see it either. Our lease roads are not terrible, but they aren't smooth red dirt either. That's my only issue right now. Not as smooth of ride as I would like. I keep spilling my drink if polaris came out with an electric crew that would be my next go to. If not I'll keep the golf cart.

If you haven't already drop the air pressure in your tires down to about 3-4 psi. Still won't be as smooth as a Ranger but it will help.

Headed there this weekend with it. Plan on checking them and will adjust if needed. Should help a bit.

For the electric components upgrades I use EVdrives mostly. For the lift and other stuff I like to shop around on ebay because they are held accountable if they don't ship quickly.

Here's mine finished out. If you scroll back up you can see how I bought it from the dealer.

Here is my latest one. Its a 96 I rebuilt from the frame up. Custom paint, custom rear rack, Jakes 6" lift, knock-off eBay fender flares and headlights, stock wheels on Kenda Bearclaw 22" tires. All electronics are still stock, but they do OK to get me to and from the stand.

This thread is about to cost me some money. My Ranger is a great workhorse but it is not very quiet. Dang I knew I should have never clicked on this one......

Ha, I'm no Jedi. Thanks for the compliments though. I just bought one to fix up a few years ago and it gave me something to do outside that I enjoyed. Since then I've lost count on how many I've done and I still enjoy it and still learn with every one. I just picked up another last week from a TBHer and started a build. Here's a before picture with all the golf related stuff stripped off. Hope to have it done in a couple of weeks.
