I am looking at buying a used DCX500 Alltrax controller for a Club Car IQ cart. The controller is to be like new shape. The date on the controller is Feb. 2010. The guy is asking $350.00 I offered $250.00 What is a used controller worth?

I'd run with the $350, that's a good deal. Alltrax is the best to my knowledge and they hold their value. I was about to buy a used 500amp programable at @$450.00 and that was a good deal.

Is the Alltrax factory warranty transferable?

I just scored a 500 for $320 from a friend....like I said, a friend. Better grab that one for $350. Those run between 5 and 6 hundo.

Thanks for the info. I was looking to buy a new Alltrax after christmas, but this deal came along. I just haven't priced used controllers, I wasn't sure if a used controller held its value. I think I'm going to give what he is wanting. Thanks again for the help, Greg

Alltrax techs have told me that controller damage is accumulative. I have heard this from other controller techs, so be sure there was no problems with the previous owner. G.L. $350 for a used one or $420 for a new one? Not too much price difference if the old one could be compromised.

The guy told me it works fine and there is nothing wrong with it. The only reason he took it off is to put a 600 amp controller on the cart. This guy I'm going to buy it from builds custom carts. I think he is selling for the owner of the cart he's building. I offered $250.00 for it. He got with the owner and told him what I offered and the owner told him he will take it. I got it for $250.00, I guess I'll find out soon enough if I got a deal or got burned. Thanks for the info., Greg

Sounds like a great deal at $250, but of course you are always taking a chance on how its been treated? I agree with SCOTTYB that damage is accumulative and its almost impossible to know outwardly what life is left? I have seen some used controllers that had dark heat looking stains on outside that were sold as almost unused? I also wonder why anyone with a 500 amp IQ controller would be selling it as I understand thats about as high as a shunt motor field windings of very light material can stand? I could be very wrong but??? I would check with TahoeDawgZ71 as he works with IQ all the time. Look back at his old posts as I seem to remember him talking about IQ max controller amps?

I know what your,re saying. I know that IQ motors is rated at 500 amps max. I'm going to program this controller around 80%. Why would anybody want to put a 600 amp controller on a IQ setup, I don't know. I'm rolling the dice on this controller. If it works out I've done good. If not, this isn't the first thing I have ever lost on. I've got my fingers crossed. Thanks guy's, Greg
