Default 48v cart.....36v motor question

Curiosity may kill the cat, but asking can't hurt..... ;)

I've heard of 36v EasyGo owners upgrading to 48 volts (bats/cables/controler/ect..) but using their 36volt motor and getting more speed/torque.

I have all the hardware (see signature) running in my 2001 48v CC ds.

What happens in terms of performance if I swap the 48v D395 with the 36v D395 keeping the rest of the cart the same?

Anyone already gone through the motions and have any info to share?

Define "high torque motor upgrade'

about 4 years ago I replaced the stock motor with a "Ultra High Torque" motor.

Non-peak
11.4 HP @ 2,300 RPM at 48-volts

Is that the info you were looking for?

Unless I have missed something with GE motors it is the same motor whether it is 36v or 48v. The only difference being you will get higher performance from a 48v setup and this motor requires a controller upgrade which you already have. Most of the DC series motors (probably some exceptions) will run on either 36 or 48 volt system, but as i stated above you will see better performance when in a 48v system.

For example I have a 48v CC DS Series cart with a stock GE D377 that has 36 volt on the label.

There is a chart around here somewhere that lists the GE motors and what you can expect performance wise when hooked up to either 36 or 48 volts and different amp controllers. If I can find it I will post a link or the chart.

Thanks for the info. I was unaware that they are the same motor.

here is a link to another thread talking about this motor and in it the chart i was talking about. the d395 is not on the chart, but it will give you an idea of 36 vs 48 and what it will do.

Is there a better setup for D395 motor/ controller combo?
