HILLMAN PRO DRIVE GOLF BUGGY - UKSPORTS IMPORTS



Summary



Good points - Price, looks, sturdy build for price (eg metal frame work, motor weather tight, wheels, hair handle bars)



Bad points - Use of some very cheap componets which lets overall reliability down.(esp cabling poor quality)



Note - Buggy is only suitable for short to Medium length course & flat to mild undulating.



Finally some golfers I have spoken 2 have had few problems. But most of these perhaps only play on a less regular basis (average use of 1 round ever 14 days at most). Those like me who play at least once a week, normal more) are the ones who seem 2 have the most problems. I have tried 2 be favour & honest in this review below!!



I was really pleased with it when I first got it. Quick delivery & was of reasonable build quality for the price paid esp. compared 2 better known makes. Worked well for 1st 6 months, only problem was the bit that held bag on very cheap & nasty broke within 3 weeks but that was ok as i knew that it was budget model!! 2nd 6 months have been terrible, broke down twice with same fault - speed control on handle-bar. Must be a regular fault as they knew right away on my description what was wrong! Now on talking 2 another owner definately a major weakness as he has had same fault 3x.



If the buggy brakes down don't tell them your handy as they ship the new parts 2 u 2 fix. Although credit 2 them on quickness 2 send replacement parts and information on how 2 install them. I suppose this is easier than having 2 come & pick buggy up & take it 2 W.Midlands. Now worried that I'm in last month of warranty & as from end of April I will have 2 pay for an replacement parts 2 keep it working(& just broken down again} esp as the speed control doesn't seem 2 last long.
