LOOKING AFTER YOUR GOLF CART

Your personal golf cart is an important investment and you need to protect your investment and make sure it lasts. Whether your golf car is petrol or electric and whether it is new or used, maintaining your golf cart is not difficult and can be easily achieved with a regular maintenance schedule. Most golf cart manuals have detailed instructions for maintenance.

If you have a petrol golf cart you will need to do ongoing maintenance including changing spark plugs and air filters and checking oil levels and changing the oil filter. Electric golf carts are easier to maintain.

Maintaining Your Golf Cart

  1. A regular golf cart maintenance schedule starts with a once a month check of the golf car parts to ensure they are in good working order.
  2. Keep your golf car clean and free from a build up of grass, dirt and debris.
  3. Maintain the batteries as detailed below.
  4. Ensure there is no build up of dirt and grit underneath your golf cart. Inspect the undercarriage regularly and clean thoroughly.
  5. It is recommended that cart owners schedule a major check-up or service every six months. At this check, the golf cart’s brake system, suspension, engine and tyres are inspected, cleaned and repaired where necessary. Carrying this out every six months will save time and money in the long run - we can provide this service in the greater Brisbane area, call 1300 921160.

Battery Maintenance for Electric Golf Carts

You need to establish a regular maintenance schedule for your golf cart batteries. This will prevent damage to your batteries and save you the embarrassment of losing power on the golf course.

  1. To prevent grass or dirt entering the battery cells, clean the battery before you check water levels in the cells. Wash off loose grass and dirt with a garden hose; use a wire brush on the terminals and baking soda and water to clean the battery and terminals thoroughly. The baking soda will neutralise any acid residue.
  2. Then check water levels in the cells and fill with distilled water if low. It is important to not over fill, keeping the level below the inner indicator rings of the battery. If the cells are filled too full as the battery is charging the water will heat, expand and possibly boil over.
  3. It is recommended that your golf cart batteries should be charged with each use and not allowed to fully discharge. This will give your golf cart battery long life. You can achieve 80% recharge in approximately 2 hours. The last 20% may take more than 6 hours.

Storage

If you know you won’t be using your golf cart for a long period of time it is important to ensure correct storage. A few simple steps will prevent damage and deterioration to your valuable asset and have your golf cart ready for your next game.

Instructions for storing an Electric Golf Cart

  1. Make sure the storage area will protect your golf cart from the elements and vermin.
  2. Check the battery cell caps are tight. Use baking soda and water to clean the battery, including terminals, and the area around the battery eg inside walls of the body panels. A handy tool is a small paintbrush or toothbrush to get into the difficult to reach areas.
  3. Check all cable connections are tightly secured and make sure cables are not too close.
  4. Make sure water levels in the battery cells are at optimum level, using distilled water.
  5. Ensure the battery is fully charged. This is especially important if you live in a cold area because when a battery discharges the acid turns to water and is more likely to freeze. Do not over charge the battery and ensure the charger is disconnected from the golf cart battery and unplugged from the wall. This will safeguard your golf cart from the risk of power surge damage.

If you use your golf cart often you can lengthen the life of the seat with a golf cart seat cover. See accessories section on main menu
