Thumbs up Down Payment

Just gave a guy $200 to hold a cart for me (see pictures below), and will be paying him $1400 next week for a total of $1600.

Its and EZGO industrial cart, 36V, and the motor looks like it is directly attached to the rear differential. No CVT or belts or anything. The batteries look really good, there is no rust, the front tires are rigid, and the rears are pneumatic. Everything looks well maintained.

I am considering fabricating a wheel lift and turning it into a "tow truck" for carts, to use at my buisness (see previous post entitled "Testing the Waters"). I figure it will be practical given the fact that the two little towns (across the river from each other) I will be operating in, both allow carts on the city streets. Secondly, I figure it will be enough of a novelty that people will talk about it, (i.e. "you'll never guess what I saw today, a golf cart tow truck"), which can only help my buisness. I will also put a winch on it, which may be how I power the lift, depending on how I design and fabricate.

Is $1600 a good price? And does anyone have experience or know of any plans for such an animal???

Robin

Has anyone

I'd say yes, given it's apparent condition. . . I've seen carts in worse condition go for much more than that. . .

That's just cool...........

I see those and other styles of "carts" at my job everyday. I work at big aerospace company and their everywhere here. You are on the right track with the tow-truck/wrecker idea. Put your company logo on the side and everyone that talks about it will know it's yours.

Saw this some time ago and thought it would give you some inspiration. Yep, a fully functional rollback. Pretty cool project you got there.

Good luck.

Picked up the EZGO Industrial Cart today, earlier than expected. Barely had enough power to get it on the trailer. Seller said the building only has power in the day time, and it couldn't be charged at night. The batteries look real good. I brought it home, topped off the batteries and put it on to charge over night. Hope they are all good, time will tell.

Took some more pictures. I am new to carts and don't know the difference between resistor or controller carts. Can some one look at the picks and tell me which I have.

Also, look at the engine mount/drive connection. There is no CVT or belts of any kind. I am hoping this style of direct connection is more heavy duty, making this a great transmission for the towing application I am considering for this cart. Also I noticed the word Texrton on the dash decal. Can anyone tell me if this helps determine the carts manufacturing date?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanx

Robin

You have a controller. Look for a mfg. tag somwhere on the cart. Don't know where on industrial carts. Maybe someone else knows. If you find the tag, the last two digits of the mfg. no. is the year built by EZGO.

That's a pretty long controller in there. Nice HD solenoid also. Batteries are Trojan T-105's, very good. The dates are stamped into the terminals in a code of sorts. Also, the diff is a Dana/Spicer just like the TXT carts you are used to seeing. Nothing unusual there. I see hydraulic rear brakes, and shock perches on top of the axle tube which makes putting the axle on top of the obviously HD springs a fabrication challenge for a rear lift. Solid front tires? Yikes! How many lugs on the front and rear hubs?
