Whether it’s pulling us up that steep hill or taking the strain off your shoulders, electric trolleys are seen by many as essential to get us around a golf course and give us the best chance of shooting the lowest score possible. However, considering how much they do for us, they are easily neglected, so what is the best way of caring for your electric trolley?

How Long is the Warranty on my Trolley?

Depending on your choice of battery, many electric trolleys come with a warranty of between one and two years. However, this can usually be extended up to five years for Lithium batteries following online warranty registration. For specifics on your trolley, visit our electric trolley product pages or blog page on registering your extended warranty.

Once you have completed your warranty registration, the product manual should be the first stop for the best tips on maintaining your trolley. This will help ensure your trolley is set up correctly and may provide advice on the best storage methods to look after it. 

Once you are happy with your product, there are a few simple checks and maintenance tasks you can do to limit wear and tear:

  1. Following each use (particularly in muddy conditions), wipe down your trolley using a damp cloth or a mild cleanser with some warm water to keep it running smoothly and looking good. The wheels are removable to allow them to be swapped over or individually cleaned where required. Although trolleys are built to cope with all weather conditions, manufacturers recommend NOT using a jet wash, compressed air hose or steam cleaner. This could force water into the electronics and potentially invalidate any warranty.
  2. Bolts on the trolley can loosen from wear and vibration, so check them regularly to ensure they remain hand tight as recommended. At the same time, visually inspect the drain holes in the battery tray for blockages and any wiring or connections for general wear and tear that could lead to faults.

Finally, annual servicing is recommended to ensure everything is as it should be with your trolley. For example, clogged or misaligned bearings, wheels or other components can increase the drain on the battery, reducing the range of your trolley.
