If you plan on using a 25 gallon sprayer on it, you are going to be disappointed. At least, that's my experience.

Now, I love my cart, but to do those things consistently and well and quickly, I ended up buying an old four wheeler for $600. Now I use the cart to hunt in, load up deer, people, etc. and it's great, but I wouldn't bet on doing any huge chores in an electric golf cart. A polaris maybe, but not a golf cart.

Really???

I could tow a 25 gal sprayer with zero problem, in fact I tow a 23 gal sprayer regularly over my 2 acres for fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and have been for years now with ease.

I also pull a 800lbs lawn roller every spring to flatten high spots in my yard. My yard has a good slope to it also.

What would be a good test for pulling power? I'm curious now!

I'm willing to bet I could pull my truck around with ease.

You absolutely could.

There was a thread recently in the ezgo section where a gut pushed his truck uphill into his garage. Needless to say, he was shocked at what a stock, electric cart could do.

We use to push demo cars around with an old 36v 3 wheeler but a demo car really doesnt weigh all that much.

Maybe I'll leave my truck in park and try it .

If you are thinking of building a cart that can go out and plow a field all day then no. That is what tractors are for. Electric buggies however excel at towing reasonable loads for short distances, say under a mile or 2. They can move heavy loads for shorter distances. I can pull almost as much as my fathers 700 grizzly 4 wheeler. But both are limited in their capabilities on a farm as the OP stated he wanted his for. But for light chores or transportation involving prolonged starts and stops, sparkies rule.

FWIW, I am a contractor on golf courses and use customers golf course vehicles to tow our 1000lb + machines from green to green. I also have over 20 years in the industry working and using utility golf carts for all sorts of tasks. I will say that beyond a shadow of a doubt, if your going to be towing equipment all day electric should not be considered. Every course we work on, (over 100) has massive issues with their electric Carryalls, Gators, and Workman's. I am noticing less and less electric utility vehicles being purchased on equipment lease because of the reliability when used all day everyday for work. My .02 cents.

I purchased a electric cart for hunting about a year ago and wish I had done it many years ago. Absolutely love easing around on this thing. Upgraded motor, controller, etc. and itís a beast. While crossing a private bridge, a decent 8 point was in the creek drinking water about 30 yards and didnít hear the cart due to the running water. Didnít take long for him to see me and bolt but was a neat experience. I bought the wrong cart for hunting and off road but with additional $$$ made it what I needed. In my opinion there is nothing like a electric cart for hunting.

I would agree with that if the sole use was hunting. It seems as though OP wants to also use this cart for work as well if I'm not mistaking.

Default Best cart for hunting / work rig

I didnít mention that I also use it around the place too. Pull a small trailer, use my 25 gallon sprayer, haul firewood, etc. Itís just extremely handy to jump on and go/use but I do mainly use it to make rounds around the place, fill up feeders, check cameras, etc. I donít try and push its limits. I have a tractor with loader for bigger jobs but with Plowmans riot kit it hasnít failed me yet.

Yes I imagine that isn't to much work for an electric. Touche
