“Absolute disgrace, £700 and a waste of money! ”

Written on: 24/05/2011

Absolute disgrace, £700 and a waste of money!

Infuriated and want the company to be accountable for its contempt to its customers

To be honest, there are many companies struggling now and I can only hope that PK goes out of business for its injustice to loyal hard working people

Hi, I have had 3 brand new FW2 and the axle has just gone on the third it's a disgrace, what a load of rubbish. Everybody needs to pester Consumer Direct so they will pass info onto Trading Standards to investigate Powakaddy and make them accountable. Currently reviewing taking my retailer to small claims court for compo but powakaddy get away with it. We should set up a consortium. £450 down the pan, had gear box / drive shaft / stop start / accerating / speed problems you name it has gone wrong.

Written on: 23/05/2011 by Alan cruickshank (1 review written)

Spent around £700 on my freeway2. Faults observed include poor stability on hilly ground, controls difficult to use, starts and stops of it's own accord, screen mists up, refuses to go in a straight line. Battery has performed well over a 2 year period. After repair by local agent decided to call it a day and agent has agreed to sell on my behalf and donate the proceeds to a cancer charity. Hopefully someone will benefit from my misfortune… Read Full Review

“Having been a Powakaddy user for years the Freeway II...”

Written on: 15/05/2011

Having been a Powakaddy user for years the Freeway II has been a major let down. I notice that it has been replaced with the "all new" Sport model which looks identical except for the "Sport" decal and teh new handle with two of the old fashioned rotary speed controllers! Every review I have read about the Powakaddy Freeway II hates the fixed speed buttons - so why don't Powacaddy "upgrade" all interested Freeway II owners to the new "new ergonomic soft grip handle, built-in responsive speed… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2011

I can only endorse all that has been said on this forum. I am on my 4th FWII and the problems are still there. More worryingly Powakaddy do not care. They have the most appalling attitude of if you don't like it - tough ! If anyone has had a satisfactory response from them can they please publish it on this web site ? Their rep freely admits that they know there are a number of dissatisfied customers but company policy is just let them prattle on - no one will take any notice of them. Perhaps… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/04/2011

FW2 lithium purchased end of 2009, paid 600 quid and the only good thing about this trolley is the battery, on a hilly course it has never faltered. As for the trolley I will give you one piece of very genuine advice AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Display misting up, axle breaking, screws falling out, rubber around switches splitting, fiddly controls and now its just stopped. Press the button and nothing, no nothing happens. E mailed powakaddy and they have not had the decency to reply… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2011

so funny reading these comments. Painfully true. I've still got my freeway 2 but it is like Trigger from "Only Fools and Horses" broom, except his broom was 20 years old! I bought mine because i thought the motocaddys look flimsy, but even if everything else on the fw2 worked, the speed control is annoying and a dial would be better. AVOID. I agree that powakaddy should've recalled them. It was my first electric and I expected a better piece of kit froma brand I thought had a good rep. I'll… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/02/2011 by pxh38257 (1 review written)

I purchased a new Freeway II in March 2010 and it has had to be repaied on 3 occasions since then. The first time was an issue with the battery where the connection point plastic split.
The second time was when the wheel shaft snapped half way around the course. And the latest issue where the trolley would only move at one speed SLOW again forcing us to abandon a round.
During the year I have had it it has had a new battery connection point installed, a new wheel shaft, a new display, a new… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/02/2011

I bought a Freeway II which is my first electric trolley, and am very disspointed.
The speed control is not very responsive, you set off and if one speed is too slow, when increasing the setting, it takes a long time to kick in and get to speed. speed 4 is too slow, speed 5 is too fast
I've had it for about a year and a half and over the last couple of months, the speed control has decided to change speed on its own, most of the time going up to its highest speed and I can't turn it off without… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2011

We have 2 power caddies. My wife's Freeway bought 2007 is great but my Freeway II bought just 15 months ago is appalling.Same faults as listed from previous customers. Speed 4 too slow and 5 too fast. Not able to read display screen due to misting up. Keeps cutting out and resets to '0' - have to disconnect battery each time to restore supposedly normal functions, have given up using it and resorted to carrying clubs until it is repaired to my satisfaction.

“This was my first power trolley and have returned it...”

Written on: 15/01/2011 by lloydm (4 reviews written)

This was my first power trolley and have returned it as not fit for purpose.

Here the good points:

It looks pretty in white.
It folds away neatly.
The battery keeps its charge well.
The digital yard marker is quite useful if you are on the fairway.

..and the bad:

It will tip over backwards if going uphill.
The digital display is hard to read in bright sunlight.
The display mists over with only the slightest hint of rain.
Speed 4 is too slow and speed 5 is too fast; there is nothing in… Read Full Review

“Powakaddy FW II and Deluxe III bag. ”

Written on: 24/11/2010

Powakaddy FW II and Deluxe III bag.

First power trolley, don't know what more you could want from a power trolley, easy assembly easy to use. A small amount of effort required to adjust the front wheel to make it run in a straight line (but at least you have the option) Being able to measure the length of your shots is a nice touch and can only help you improve your game. After being a bag carrier for years I am amazed at how much energy you have left for the last few holes. Had to decide… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2010

When you are playing in Kampenhout (flat terrain) and your expensive Powakaddy Freeway II breaks down, you may survive pushing it for a few holes. If the same happens in Clervaux, Luxemburg, a very hilly terrain, you better stop playing. Your arms will hurt too much to properly hit a ball.

I bought my Powakaddy Freeway II in April 2009. It broke down on a dozen occasions. Sometimes it would start up again the day after. It probably needs a good nights rest? It has been back to the shop three… Read Full Review
