Default 2010 Parcar - very low torque

Bought this machine for my electrician to use at work. It is 48v and has a new set of 6v batteries. I installed a new Lester charger which appears to have solved its charging issues. It's slow and the speed control switch does nothing so I assumed the speed sensor was bad. When I went to load it up this morning, it wouldn't climb the trailer ramp without getting a little bit of a run at it. Shouldn't it have more torque than that? My Yamaha cart will pull up onto the same trailer easily. It drives around on flat ground ok. Thoughts on what to look at first?

YES! It can pull the weight of an F150 up a loading ramp. My guess is the accelerator cable is so stretched that you might be pressing the pedal down 100% but the controller is getting less than a 50% pedal push signal. You would need to replace the cable between the pedal and the LAD (Linear Accelerator Device). In the meantime you can adjust it. Under the hood is the LAD. At the back side of the LAD, loosen the two nuts of the cable and adjust the cable so it has more pull. That will buy you some time. But be aware it will cause the cable to break soon as it's already on it's last leg so get a cable ordered so you don't get stranded.

Here's the how-to on the cable adjustment.
