Totally and 100% agree, so like I say my main question was 6-t-890s or 8 6volts. Sounds like 6 volts.

I know the 502-02 well

I used eight T145 batteries in my latest build... they are providing good run times with the extra capacity.

It currently has about 2 year old t-875s.. So the question is, to increase the run time and get more life out of it, would I be better off to go with T-890s or 9 6-Volts?

Right now, if you run the cart about at about an average of 16 mphs the battery life is about 40 mins before she shuts down.


Your running the cart untill it shuts down, as in, till the batteries are DEAD, this is not good, are you sure you don't have a bad battery or two?? have you done a load test??

Yes batts are good. But please understand that when I say shut down, I am referring to the Alltrax hitting its low voltage limit and shutting down the unit to protect the batteries from deep discharge. Regardless they still deplete rapidly, which I did expect, just didn't expect quite this much.

Correct if I'm wrong, but I thought cooler temperatures cause a battery to discharge at a slower rate?

cooler temperatures cause a battery to discharge at a faster rate, if the batteries are not at full charge, the cold will kill them, and if it's to cold they will freeze and crack
