How much does it weigh?
You must consider that although it saves you carry a bag; you still have to lug it in and out of your car or a locker room. Also batteries can be quite heavy to push on a trolley if they run out.Can I control the speed?
How do I control the speed?
Not a problem with a push trolley. Some electric models just have a basic on/off function with a pre-set level of power. You may want to consider a progress speed controlled trolley that you can easily control. There are some remote controlled trolleys on the market that will allow you to send the trolley around the green while you walk over it, but at a healthy price!
How easy is it to assemble?
Most trolleys are either fold-up or three-piece detachable designs. Either way you should test out how easy it is to assemble and break down. Some trolleys allow the wheels to be removed for easy storage.
Will it fit into my car?
Fairly elementary, but you do not want to choose a trolley that will struggle to fit into your car or locker? Most trolleys are designed with the idea that they will be stored in car boots, but it's still something to consider.How easy is it to maintain?How easy is your trolley to keep clean and in good order. Will you have to dismantle it to keep it clean? How easy is it to charge the battery and how often must it be done? How long will it last? These are all questions that should be considered.
Do I like the look of it?
There are so many trolleys available to you that you should be able to find the specifications of one you like in a style and look that is attractive to you. It must be suited to you and your taste. Make sure it is suitable to your height, so that you wont have to bend to operate it as that will do your back more harm that good.
How good is the battery?
Without the battery, your electric trolley will not go far. You should investigate to discover the battery life of your trolley and how many holes it should run for. It is also important to find out how long it takes to recharge (this can vary from 2 hours to 10 hours) and decide whether you may need to buy a spare battery. You should test the weight of the battery, they are fairly heavy and need to be lifted out of trolleys, car boots and lockers very often so finding one you can easily carry is important, especially if the trolley is for an older golfer (the best electric trolley will have handles on the battery).
