Default 1999 TXT battery tray

Hey I got a Free Free 36v 1999 TXT DCS cart and got it home to find the battery tray was rusted beyond fixing, has anyone rebuilt a battery tray and changed anything about it? I have enough to build one just like the factory tray but was wondering if there are modifications I should consider before rebuilding it. Would weight make it better to distribute the batteries as 2 across and 3 deep or stay with the factory placement of 3 across and 2 deep?

How do you guys find these free carts all the time?!?!?! I got an 85 and an 89 and had to pay for both! (450 and 200 respectively)


the 3 across 2 deep works well as far as distributing the weight. if you are looking at adding a 12 V battery for accessories, now is the time. sometimes you can add them to the drivers side out board of the frame rail. not sure on the model. you would have to just get measurements and decide on the battery you want to run for it.


As far as building new trays for the cart. just get all the old metal cut out, treat any rust by cleaning and adding a rust converter. then get new angle and weld up a new set. One thing I have done to the 2 I have built is added expansion steel to the bottom side of the trays just to add a little protection to the bottom side of the batteries. the only other thing I would suggest is once the trays are all welded in, prep the frame and shoot it all with some thing to protect all the hard work. I have been partial to the spray on bed liner material. its tough and easy to shoot. If you want a suggestion, go with the duplicolor spray can and get the one with the Kevlar in it. it is tougher, and lays out with a grit. that way it hold the batteries in place. the other ones don't have that and things tend to slide around. I got the kevlar stuff and used it on my current build and it's great. I also used in on my Class C RV when I repainted it last year. shot the back bumper, and used it on the door jam for the entry step for the cab and the outer wheel well (between the door and the weather strip). works great!

Hope that helps you.

Good luck!

Our local golf cart store has steel replacement battery trays for ~$100, powdercoated and all. It's not worth the trouble of rebuilding the rusted tray unless you already have the material laying around.

I have built one from angle iron. It is not worth it. You can buy replacements for ~100 like sportcoupe says.

Bee both of my carts have been junked by the owners and I got them for free, a 92 gas Columbia Parcar and now the EZGO, both have been a "get it out of the yard" type thing. Some people just don't know these things are worth something even when they don't run.

Thanks Sport, I'll see about getting my tray there if I don't fab one myself. I like the idea of it being powder coated.
