My S1 is 2 years old. I have had a series of problems associated with the On/Off switch and Control Box. It has taken three visits to their HQ near Stansted Airport to get it fixed. They seem qick to diagnose and replace parts without thoroughly investigating the cause of the problem in the first place and then fail to test the repair adequately to make sure that the fault has been eradicated. I have also found that the motor and gearbox is not well supported and has a tendency to work… Read Full Review

I have had my S1 for about a month now, on buying it from a well known retailer (American Golf)I brought it home (20 miles from the shop)and assembled it and charged the battery to find out it did not work. On having to go back to the shop the assistant could not get it to work so they gave me another one.I have played 5/6 rounds of Golf and so far it has not let me down. The S1 looks nice and is solid but what a lot of messing with the battery. On my old Power caddy I came home from a round of… Read Full Review

Speed control went after only a few weeks. Returned via distributor for repair. When motocaddy returned, unfortunately I did not check it prior to going to golf (obviously they didn't check it either) only to find motocaddy would only go in reverse! Returned yet again for repair. Now battery has lost power and I had to return everything once again to motocaddy - nearly three weeks later have been advised they will replace battery, but will not guarantee it. However, if I want to pay for a… Read Full Review

My S3 has none 34 rounds since new, in that time the freewheel clutches have failed 3 times. on the last occasion the local agent says the failure is due to the gearbox filling with water due to the trolley being driven through a puddle.Have sent a report to Motocaddy UK but they have replied that I should refer the problem to " my distributor " they only deal with problems in the UK. Without the problems would have been a reasonably buy.
If their gearboxes can fill with water this should be… Read Full Review

My Husband bought me a Motor caddy electric buggy for christmas 2010
I have used it for 8 months only as the charger did'nt turn off and cooked the battery also did damage to laundry bench top. I had it sitting on a piece of cardboard. Could'nt do anything about it as the company the retailer purchased it from has gone out of business I am so disapointed as it will make my golf season very expensive for 2011… Read Full Review

I have the original S1 and it has been a great trolley, I am still on the original 18 hole battery, and it still makes 24 holes on my course 6200 yds, but I do condition it(run it flat) every couple of charges. I think the pot is just fading so will replace soon but this is just £10 direct from Motocaddy. As it has been so good I have just purchased a new S1 digital trolley for my son with a 36 hole battery, all being well they will runs for a few years yet… Read Full Review

Actually like the Motocaddy but after one month the speed is stuck on one setting. I keep e-mailing Motocaddy Australia, Uk and USA and no one will return my messages. Fortunately the dealer I bought it from is getting me a new controller but he is having problems getting one. I would not recommend this cart. There are probably other carts that are just as good but with better custoemr service… Read Full Review

Motocaddy The center of gravity is wrong, cannot handle a slope of 1 in 6 The on off button operation is very sensitive, also the rotary action.
I have designed a mod for this and advised motocaddy,but they advise me they have received no complaints.
Every member in my club who have purchased this trolley have had the same problem and visiting clubs members make the same case
Finally it is potentially dangerous.
For example, without be aware, you a club out of your bag and in doing so you… Read Full Review

Has anyone had a look at the Power BUg..... I bought mine from my Pro in Wales and its really good value for money and very reliable. I notice that A.Golf had some on sale cheap. They are not the same type as my Pro Sport, but look like a bargain! Read the reviews on this site. I have also bought one of their new deluxe cart bags, agin great value for money… Read Full Review

Bought this trolley after years of using a powercaddy which finally gave out. Looks good but seems to bounce its way down the fairways compared to other carts. Sent it back twice thinking it may just be a problem with the one I bought but have since discovered this seems to be a common fault. The other issue which annoys after a short time is the push button start feature which is sensitive and I seemed to spend too many holes chasing my trolley as it speeds off after an involuntary touch!… Read Full Review

the life expectancy for the battery is only 18 months, which i thiink is totally not acceptable, one of my playing partners has a hill billy and his battery has lasted over 5 years, i have also had to get a replacement handle as it snapped......only £30 to replace, add that to the 60 for the battery, that is 90 in 18 months, not good… Read Full Review

Thought I would write this review before I use my new MC S1 digital trolley, I bought the white version and it looks really good.
My course is quite steep and rugged in parts so it will really test the new 2010 s1 model.
Please keep a look out for my update in the coming months.
My ratings and VFM are based on looks and the price only at this stage.

I have had a Motocaddy S1 for 3 and a half years in that time I have had to replace motor(2 Years) Control Box (2 1/2 years) Switch (2 1/2 years) and in the past 2 months I have had plastic fatigue in 2 places neither of which can be repaired and the trolley is no longer usable. The £250 spent originally has turned into a £400 outlay for a trolley which is use on average twice a week. I could not honestly recommend anyone to purchase this trolley… Read Full Review

My S1 is 5 years old. Replaced battery, Motor, axles (sheared because of design fault now corrected)and speed controller 6 times!! Last time, 6 months ago i got an FOC replacement of a n ew design. It just broke and I can see why. Motocaddy have a design type problem but I've found customer service pretty good. I have friends who have similar problems with HillBilly, Powacaddy et al. Buy on price - they're all the same!… Read Full Review

The 18 hole battery that came with my S1 lasted 14 months during which time I was abroad for one month and my local course had a trolley ban due to wet conditions for another month. In fact it did less than 50 rounds of a flattish 5000 yd. 18 hole course. Motocaddy were just not interested because their warranty is 12 months - period! No interest for product development/improvement data, no interest for customer service and no interest for the sake of their reputation. All I got on the telphone… Read Full Review

I wish these reviews were readily available a couple of years ago before I bought my MC S1. I seem to have had the same trouble as many other reviewers, battery died after 12 months, purchase new one, the spend control is either stop or turbo and I have to chase the trolley around the course. Last straw today the whole thing packed up after 3 holes. Got in touch with local repair agent who tells me he stopped doing repairs them because of all the trouble he had repairing them. Anybody know… Read Full Review

Purchased in 2007. Two broken main frame folding joints, both repaired by MC (Latest model has been modified). MC also replaced the controller whilst under warrantly. Since warranty expired, replaced battery (Orig lasted 18 months). Had to rivot frame folding joint as the orig rivots sheared. Speed control can now only be operated from one side. On a positive note, I have manage 36 holes on a single charge. However, I still quiet like it despite the problems. Been running like a dream… Read Full Review
