DIY installation guide
You get the basic kit with PowerWheel(s), control box(brain), forward/reverse throttle with universal cart clamp, and a 48V Li-Ion Battery. All cables come standard length. Extensions are available. The kits are very versatile and can be worked out in many different configurations.
Since they are a DIY kit, and all carts are a little different, the finalization of your build, ie: cable runs, parts placement, parts mounting and tacking down cables will require you to decide how you will set it up. Check out the basic setups below. These are the most popular setups and are great to use or a good place to start your setup design.
If you need to design a different style configuration, feel free to contact us with questions!
The wire runs come in approximate lengths (see below). They usually run a little long to accommodate all styles of carts.
Control boxes and batteries are mounted to the cart by bolting them on or clamping them on. In most cases, there are ways to bolt on everything, clamp on everything, or a mix of both.
Model 1 (shown below) has a clamp on the control box and a bolted on battery mount. It can also be, clamped on control box and battery clamped onto opposite cart post/ Also could be, control box bolted under bottom shelf and battery clamped to post. Whatever works best for your cart.
