Just make sure you can supply the input power for the forklift charger. Many of the forklift chargers are either 480v3ph or 240v3ph since they are typically in an industrial environment. If the charger is 240v or 120v single phase then you should be ok.

Still, free is free and maybe you can flip it regardless of input and get a GC charger.

One more thing about the forklift chargers is the amp output...some people think if it says 50 amps at 36 volts thats a good thing but it's not. If your not careful you can boil the batteries dry in no time with that kind of power going in. I would say if it's under 30-35 amps your safe but you should still keep an eye on the water levels until you get used to how it charges.

I just picked up a cart and I'd like to test the motor as well. Is it possible to get the info on how to test when the batteries are dead? Thank you.

The following test procedure is from one of our sponsors...

Tech Support

Low Voltage Motor Check (no controller)

This test uses 1 or 2 of the batteries of the battery pack, A few jumper wires and the motor mounted to the golf car axle. (Keeping the motor attached to the axle is necessary as most of today's golf car motors only have a single bearing.)

Low Voltage Motor Check for series wound motor (no controller)

Turn car off, remove key, jack up car so rear wheels are off the ground.
Carefully remove all cabling from motor. It's always a good idea to mark where each cable was connected to motor.
If you have a Switchable EMP motor, add jumper from LR1 to LR2
Connect a jumper as shown in Fig C to motor. (Actual terminal locations may vary slightly.)

Fig. C

Bring power from one of the batteries as shown in Fig. C
Make/Break connection by tapping "A" and "B" wires. Speed should be slow, but if motor moves, your system problems probably lie elsewhere.

If there are no batteries in the cart you are wanting to test the motor in, or the batteries are totally dead or damaged, you can take a 12v automotive battery and a pair of jumper cables with you, and test it using those and the motor wiring diagram above. That's how I test them thanks to this great forum!
