Random Question: Powered Utlitity Carts - Gas or Electric - October 19, 2017, 10:28 AM

Community has grown to the point that we're going to need a utility cart for year round duties.

I'll probably authorize a used purchase under $3,000.
I'm debating between electric or gasoline.

Anyone have insight on which would be the better route to go?

Gas = fuel, oil changes, and maintenance.
Electric = Not sure how it will perform Dec - March when the batteries are cold.

Electric

Is the cart going to be stored indoors?

Most utility carts are still using lead acid batteries and they do fine.

Primarily outdoors, but thinking of building a shed for it or at least parking it in a covered car port deal. .

Agreed. Quieter and less maintenance too. We run electric carts at work, outside, all year round... No issues with the batteries.

We have gas and electric carts and have way more issues with the gas carts than the electrics.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.
