Default Ebay Controllers ?

While looking at Alltrax controllers on Ebay I noticed all the rebuilt controllers, whats the deal with these ?

I notice some of them aren't that much cheaper than a new one, but some are pretty cheap. The big difference is a 2 year warranty vs. 90 days.
I'm planning on saving up for a Alltrax 400, but that could change if mine goes out sooner than later !

What would the Alltrax 400 give my '05 PDS over the stock controller torque and speed wise ? Do I need to get a speed chip for my cart now ?

New controller will give you much better torque but no more speed. Volts = speed. The "Freedom chip" for the PDS will get you to ~19mph right now assuming stock setup.

Some not all of the Alltrax line of controllers are programmable.

Here's a pretty good discussion on pros/cons of rebuilt controllers.

Might be a bad move, but I'd have to consider one of the CTS Curtis 1206MX (PDS) 400A upgrades. It is $220 with a one year warranty compared to the Alltrax 400, which has a best price of $439 and a 2 year warranty.

It has a $80 core charge, is that refundable if I send them my old one ?

Typically yes, the core charge is refunded upon receipt of a "re-buildable" controller which there in lies a rub of sorts. I'd double check with the provider to find out the details on the core exchange.

Good luck with it.
