We had a lot of fun reviewing the original Motocaddy S7 Remote electric trolley finding the remote control easy to use.
Introduced in 2017 it was due a makeover and Motocaddy have upgraded it for the 2017 season with technological advancements as well as enhancements based on customer feedback.
Motocaddy Chairman David Well explains:
We’ve listened and reacted to suggested improvements from customers and friends in the media who have enjoyed using the S7 Remote and we believe the 2017 model ticks all the boxes for a remote-controlled trolley. This is especially true of the compact remote control handset. It’s now much easier to tuck away when not in use and being able to recharge it out on the course is the real icing on the cake.
As Wells points out the control is one of the most obvious enhancements to the 2017 S7 Remote. It is now a more compact and fully rechargeable Lithium handset that sits neatly into an integrated holder located on the underside of the handle, which itself features a new soft-touch design.
The handset can also be topped up during play thanks to the patented USB port that can also charge GPS and mobile devices.
Like the original model the dual pressure control system 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.
The S7 trolley incorporates a special mechanism that enables each of the two motors to help compensate for lateral slopes and maintain stability on challenging terrains. It also features an anti-tip wheel at the back, plus a fully-rotating front wheel to allow the trolley to travel smoothly with minimal additional guidance.
A 50-meter 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.
The 2017 S7 Remote features a new streamlined battery tray to accommodate the sleek Lithium battery used to power it, along with distinctive branding on the signature S-Series frame in a smart new Graphite colourway.
