As previewed in the January issue of GOLF RETAILING, Motocaddy has now introduced its first remote control model with the S7 Remote featuring the same frame design as the award-winning S-Series range. It comes with a dual pressure control system that allows golfers to alter how much the trolley turns to the left or the right, simply by varying the pressure applied to buttons on the handset. As well as the dual-pressure directional buttons, the user can also control the trolley’s speed going forwards or backwards depending on how long they hold the respective buttons down on the remote control device.
To maintain stability in challenging terrain, the S7 incorporates a special mechanism that enables each of the two motors to help compensate for lateral slopes. It also features a rear anti-tip wheel, as well as a fully-rotating front wheel to allow the trolley to travel smoothly without requiring additional guidance. A 50 metre cut-out function stops the trolley from going out of range, while a hibernation setting brings it to a halt if the remote hasn’t been touched for more than 45 seconds.
Smart electronics also allow the golfer to switch between the remote function and manual control mode by holding down the on/off button for one second. In addition to its remote control features, the S7 Remote includes the brand’s patented USB charging port to charge GPS devices from the battery, plus a speed indicator and battery meter.
David Wells, chairman of Motocaddy said, “The S7 has been in development for some time because the technology involved, particularly in the remote handset, is up there with the most intelligent devices of its kind. We’ve responded to consumer demand for a remote control option in our range and the S7 is a distinctly different product for those golfers looking for a reliable hands-free option.”
The new S7 Remote trolley has an RRP of £799.99 with a Motocaddy 20ah Lithium battery suitable for 18 holes on a dual-motored model and will be available in black and alpine colour options. More at: www.motocaddy.com
