From Club Car To Kohler; How To Save Money With Your Golf Car Fleet Caravans of golf carts log numerous miles each day on golf courses around the country as they carry golfers to the next hole, pro shop, or the clubhouse for some grub. Golf carts are an integral part of operations at many golf courses. This is especially true on large golf courses or those that make their way through rugged terrains. Most golfers would find walking a course while toting the weight of a golf bag cumbersome and unappealing, and walking wouldn’t even be plausible at some golf courses. Most golfers would instead prefer to have a golf cart do the hard work of navigating over rugged terrain and up steep, mountainous elevations for them.
Okay, certainly we can agree that keeping as many golf carts as possible motoring is essential to happy golfers and for the golf courses bottom financial line. But is it better to repair golf carts? Or is it a wiser investment to continually purchase “new” golf carts to meet ever-growing numbers of golfers? The answer of course is dependent in large part on the amount of money that a golf course wishes to allocate towards either the purchasing of new golf carts, or the repairing, repowering of golf carts already in inventory. A brand new golf cart may run longer before any problems prop up compared to a golf cart that has been refurbished. But keep in mind that with the demands placed upon the average golf cart, even “new” ones will eventually need some repairs to keep them running smoothly. It might be wiser to implement a plan wherein “new” golf carts are added to your ‘pool’ of golf carts when possible and “older” carts repaired until their repair costs start to “outweigh” the amount of time the carts are available for use on the fairways.

repairs by opting to “repower” your golf carts with small engines such
as those manufactured by Briggs Stratton, Cushman, Kohler, and Honda,
who have the small engines with the power you need to keep your golf
carts running. The manufacturers of these small engines have designed
them to withstand heavy workloads, even the workload placed upon the
average golf cart. These small engines come in a wide assortment of
sizes, available horsepower, and different transmission set-ups, to
meet all of your power needs. These engines also use a variety of sources
such as gasoline, diesel, and electricity from batteries for their

every golf course.

small engine can provide a golf cart with all the power it needs to
traverse rugged terrains with the weight of passengers and equipment
on board with ease. The Cushman Haulster is also built to handle heavy
The various manufacturers of these small engines have
all worked hard to develop and design the small engines that can put
out a tremendous amount of power for their size, stand up to the rigorous
demands placed on them with less maintenance required, and at a reasonable
enough cost to make them a viable choice for use in the repowering
of golf carts. You will find these engines are a cost-effective choice
for the other equipment used for the maintenance of golf courses such as seeders and mowers. Many of those in charge of keeping the
motorized equipment on their golf courses running place their trust in these small engines for all of their power
