Cool Need advice on what type of hunting cart to buy

Just got into a new hunting lease here is south Bama. 5000 acers, most roads are good but there are a few hills. I've been looking for a few weeks now and I'm not really sure which cart will be right for me. I need something with some low end to get up the hills. Need a cart that will take me many miles turkey hunting. There seem to be lots of used cart around here for sale. Most are 07' and 08' lifted. I test drove an 08' ezgo txt with a 6" lift kit. To me it just felt unbalanced. Trying not to drop $4000 on a cart and then spend more for new batt's. Should I go with 48 volts or 36. Thanks in avance for yalls help.

Try re-wording your question. Mention looking for a good cart for hunting. That should get a large responce.

E-Z-GOs all feel unbalanced to me. The suspension is much softer than the suspension on a Club Car and they tend to have much more body roll, especially when lifted. How fast do you want it to go? I'll point you in the right direction.

Z7-1 thanks for your help. Speed, from what I hear and read sounds like some give and take. Lots of low end, you have to give up speed. Is that right. But more to your question. At least 20mph { on flat ground } or I'll feel like I'm walking. Thanks BamaT

Looked at one that had a mixture of old and new batt's. Dude selling said that is ok. I thought, sounds like something that's gonna leave me WALKING.

I wouldn't trust mixed batteries unless I knew the history. I'd look for an IQ car of some sort. Any DS 2002+ with a serial prefix of "AQ" or any Precedent electric (all IQ or excel) Excel isn't much different. Slap a lift kit on it and a Plum Quick motor under it and you'll have plenty of torque and speed to do what you want to do without any major mods. I've got a Curtis 350 AMP controller and a PQ motor in my personal Precedent. GPS'd it yesterday at 33MPH with PLENTY of torque.

Really? Flat ground? What else is done to it?

Sounds like great advice thanks. IQ meaning Club car right?
That 350 amp controler work with the stock wiring?

Fresh 8V Crown Batteries with ScottyB's 2 gauge cables. 6" Lift with 22" tires. And yeah... flat ground. I was pretty amazed myself. I'd post a video on here of the GPS speed but I don't know how.. lol
