Default anyone running a DCX600PDPlus

I know I am going to go to a 500amp controller minimum but I can get a 600 amp for about $100 more. Trying to decide if it's worth the extra money. My cart is in the picture and we live in a hilly areas, I often use my cart to pull others off of our paved trails as I work on carts on the side. Worst case scenario would be two carts with 4 people on each (mine and the one I am towing). Kinda leaning towards the 600 but didn't know if it it would be that much difference. Opinions are appreciated.

A 400 would be good enough, 500 is a plus - 600 is overkill IMO

Hey cheep , it depends on the motor you are using, stock ...etc.

Look at the HP vs. motor /controller CHART here

I have a RedHawk Admirial 9.0 HP HighSpeed motor. That gets me 25mph on the flats with the stock controller and 2ga 600 strand welding cable. So it's low on torque that's why I was considering 500amp at a minimum.

I'll probably lean towards teh DCX500 as I can get it for well under $500 new where the DCX600 is about $100 more.

D&D and Alltrax both told me that a 600 amp was overkill and not needed for a 48V cart.

I have a hi torque D&D motor - went with 500 amp based on both their recs.

again it depends on the motor whether it can handle the extra ump
look at the D3080 at 700amp, but also look at the D377 , figure out
the motor and then choose the controller.
If D&D does not have a big enough motor shop around , try PQ or for a lot
of $$ go with the NEW GE D3080
