Latest M-Series includes the world’s first GPS compact-folding model
Motocaddy, the world’s leading trolley brand, is introducing a new M-Series range of compact-folding electric golf trolleys that includes super-lightweight Lithium batteries and the first compact model to come with a GPS functionality.
The latest range offers the widest choice of car-boot friendly and easy-to-fold compact electric trolleys ever-seen, with features designed to suit the needs of every golfer.
All four new models include space-saving inverted wheels to help achieve a significantly reduced folded footprint, plus a next generation 28V high power system, making it twice as powerful as other compact electric trolleys on the market. The super-light Lithium batteries are also a third smaller than those supplied by the nearest competitor.
The revolutionary new M5 CONNECT ‘Smart Cart’ is the only compact model in the world with GPS functionality offering smartphone notifications and distance data; while the latest M3 PRO is the trolley for those golfers looking for high performance features, such as distance measurement, a security pin code and Adjustable Distance Control.
The brand new M1 model is the easiest-to-use compact electric trolley on the market and is also available in the M1 DHC (Downhill Control) version for golfers who play on undulating courses.
Other features across the new M-Series include a soft-touch ergonomic handle, fully adjustable to a range of heights by hand; a whisper-quiet 230W motor; an integrated safety cut-out system; an auto-open stand mechanism; plus Motocaddy’s exclusive EASILOCK bag-to-trolley connection system, which removes the need for a lower bag strap. It also features a new style oversize frame to offer unprecedented handle stability.
“Motocaddy has four brand new, compact-folding trolleys, that are more powerful and reliable than ever before,” said Chairman, David Wells. “The new M-Series designs are remarkably compact, with a folded footprint 11% smaller that the nearest competitor, ideal for golfers with limited car boot and storage space.
“Allowing for smaller, lighter batteries has enabled us to create a new streamlined, cutting-edge design, plus the battery can be charged while still on board to make life a lot easier.” he added.
M5 CONNECT ‘Smart Cart’
The latest ‘Smart’ model provides yardages for over 40,000 courses around the world direct to the trolley handle when synced to the Motocaddy GPS App via a Bluetooth® connection on any compatible smartphone.
The sunlight friendly digital display on the M5 CONNECT (from £599.99) is more convenient than a conventional GPS device and is powered by the trolley battery. Golfers can easily view front, middle and back yardages, shot measurement, plus par of the hole, clock and round timer.
Smartphone notifications can also be viewed on the trolley display, alerting the golfer to a missed call, text message, email or range of app alerts, including WhatsApp and Facebook. The smartphone can remain connected, even when securely placed in a golf bag pocket or being charged using the trolley’s patented USB charging port.
Along with the ‘Smart’ features and modern look, the M5 CONNECT also incorporates nine speed settings and Adjustable Distance Control up to 50 yards.
“Following the success of the S5 CONNECT and CUBE CONNECT models, we’re proud to add to our CONNECT range of Smart Carts by launching the world’s first compact-folding GPS model,” said Wells.
M3 PRO, M1 & M1 DHC
Bursting with game-enhancing functions, the compact-folding M3 PRO (from £549.99) is simple to setup and includes three distance measurements (Drive, Round and Life); a USB charging port; and a new-look high resolution LCD colour screen. Other standout features include, a six-step Adjustable Distance Control (up to 60-yards); a CartLock security pin code; Advanced battery meter; a clock, and round timer; plus nine speed settings, which allows the trolley to move at the perfect walking pace.
The brand new M1 (from £499.99) incorporates a new look LCD high-resolution colour screen, nine speed settings and a battery meter. The new M1 DHC (from £549.99) features special ‘all terrain’ DHC wheels and includes the same distinctive features as the M1, but it can also maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient - even on the steepest of slopes - thanks to a special single motor that offers downhill braking, coupled with an electronic parking brake.
The trolley’s power output is adjusted automatically to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any changes to the pre-hill speed setting, while the simple-to-use electronic parking brake will hold its position, even on the steepest of slopes.
The new M-Series range will be available with a choice of frame colours and Lithium battery options from July 2018.
