Default Had dealer replace brushes

Ezgo dealer burnt brushes while testing batteries. They re-built motor and installed new brushes and now it runs slower. Any Ideas?
Thanks

It should pick up a little speed after the brushes have had time to seat....but I don't see how in the heck they could have burnt the brushes testing the batteries.

They held the brakes while pressing the gas and held it for a short period of time and motor started to smoke. Had a ticking sound after this happened. dealer said it was brushes.They said it is how EZGO told them to test the batts.

Find a new dealer.

Obviously they cannot afford a proper load tester, or simply do not want to spend the money to perform the service correctly.

I REALLY think you should post dealer name as a warning to others. Thats just not right.

Yes. Post the dealers name! This reminds me of a post on BU where dealer told a customer to check his batteries by putting the cart up againt a wall and gas it while checking.....

But, I did kinda like the rope and tree picture I was getting.....Is that an Arkansas load tester?

Rope break battery test results as follows
1/4 rope holds cart = you need all new batteries, $800 please
1/4 rope breaks but, 3/8 rope holds cart = batteries ok come back everyday for retest until you need new batteries, motor, or sumptin'
3/8 rope breaks = excellent condition, give ya $200 for it

Thumbs down Re: Had dealer replace brushes

Thanks for your overly helpful and hilarious comments. Yall should be comedians. I was wondering how u load test the entire system as a whole not 1 battery at a time. Thanks for your help. I know it sounded like a East Texas Question but I am new to the carts and I have to take baby steps to grasp the whole 36v setup.
