I agree completely Scottyb, and the fact that HT Electric offers a 36/48V Dual application motor just strengthens my theory. It WILL wear out faster, but obviously not enough to keep people from marketing it and selling it for both applications.

Both of those are good prospects. Both carts will respond well to the 48v upgrade. Here are a few key points to understand about upgrading these carts to 48v:

Both carts will need a change of throttle input device.
The 91 has a V-glide and the 87 has a box of 5 micros.
Both carts will need to have a Potentiometer installed. I prefer a Curtis PB-6 or PB-16. The install requires a custom mounting bracket and linkage connection.
Both carts will need six 8 volt batteries or two 6v added in the bagwell.
Both carts will need a 36-48 volt solid state speed controller and a matched solenoid with resistors and diodes. Custom mounting of controllers and solenoids required.
I have diagrams and pictures to help you do this.If you wanted to bundle all of these components together I could give you quite a discount.
