Default Re: PQ bandit are they ok to get wet?

Klowin 03,

All the advice everybody has given you is correct, I have a PQ Bandit on my 48 volt series Club Car. I hunt in GA and it gets pretty dang muddy and wet! I have driven my cart numerous times through wet areas over 14" deep. A couple of times water was up to my floor. I havent had any probs with my Bandit! But I wish I would have spent the extra and bought a torque motor. I'm shopping for one right know, my Bandit is the weakest link now because I have upgraded everything else. My Bandit pulls 25" tires with a 500 amp controller/ HD Solenoid /2 guage wires/ hd F&R and I haven't been able to burn it up in 7 months.

Bandits are great motors to use with stock controllers.

Whats your tire size? In my humble opinion your not going to be happy with a stock controller for a hunting cart. Yes the Bandit works great with a stock controller, but if you get the Bandit now in the future your going to wish you had the torque motor. Also I would do larger wires then 4 guage. I look at it like your building the cart for the future upgrades.. you gotta pay to play..

klowin-03,

Your going to have to shop around, there are some great sponsers who suport this website. If I was building a house the difference I would be shoping for material & labor would be enough to build one bad cart! In your case you might want to start with
a controller 1st, check out Scotty B.
Good luck,
Steve
