Golf carts?

So I moved to a community in eastern Washington that has 3 golf courses within walking distance of my house. The cities' policy is to allow golf carts on pretty much any street under 35 mph. Early on I bought a regular cart & did a few mods. Then decided I needed to jump up to something bigger, better, stronger, faster. This baby has a Terra Toys IFS, full cage, flip rear seat, roof rack, disc brakes & a 24 hp Honda engine. It does about 35 mph, even with 2 or 3 people on it or going up hills.



It's been a lot of fun. But I'm thinkin about selling it & steppin up to a TJ. It would serve the same purpose, hauling gear to the beach, poking around town or to friend's houses. Plus I could drive it to work or further away from home.

I've gotten a golf cart buried before. Went out after a week long pour and well found a damp spot and just sank the cart. A winch would have been great!

It's actually a Badlands 2000 lb winch from Harbor Freight. Only time I ever used to to pull the cart was to pull it up on a snow covered tilting trailer.... and then hold it there till we dropped the trailer down. Also have used it to haul something heavy over a span. For instance, we bought a "rock crushing cone" from a local gravel hauler to use as a fire pit on our community beach. The thing weighed about 800 lbs. We used the winch to slide it about 30' off the flat bed trailer & into place on the beach.

The cart is a lot of fun in our community. I use it to haul my paddleboard &/or ski gear down to the beach (about 3 blocks from my house), where the boat is parked. It gets around pretty good in snow up to about a foot deep. I don't use it in the mud much, just isn't setup for it. Plus we live in a dry, desert like area.

When I bought it I found they were really common in areas like SoCal & AZ, where they run them in the desert a lot.

I restored this thing at work. It was in Iraq during the invasion so it was full of powder sand, needed a new carb, new paint, new roof. It has a 300cc twin that puts out a whopping 9hp

I tore it down to the frame and took off all the rust, got it running, painted it black, and put it back together. even put down boat carpet. The stretch was clearly done by someone with a welder and a sawsall.

it gets used to ferry pilots to and from their aircraft, we use it everyday and fill it up once every 2 months or so.
