Default G9 budget upgrade

Picked up my first cart this week. 94 model G9, 36v. Plan to add lift and new wheels and tires once I get all the drive items taken care of. Cart currently runs, all 6 batteries show 6.7 volts after charging. With the exception of one new Trojan that was added, all the batteries are several years old. I am replacing all the cables with 4g welding cable and plan to load test each battery this evening.

Now my question. I have 8 additional batteries that are 6 volt that came off a scissor lift. I was thinking of adding 2 additional 6 volt batteries to bump me up to 48 volt. From reading on here I believe I will need to upgrade the solenoid and controller from the stock unit. But...I have an old forklift with bad batteries that we were getting ready to scrap. I'm thinking I could pull the solenoid, controller, and possibly the forward/reverse contactor and use it on the cart. Might even migrate the forward/reverse lever from the forklift steering column over to the cart. Thoughts?

Default Re: G9 budget upgrade

Ok. Looks like I will need some new batts. The voltage readings I took was right after charging. After sitting overnight all the batts read 6.0 volts with the exception of the one new one which reads 6.3.
