Customer Question

I have a 1978 HD golf cart, with 6 new batteries. On a flat surface it will move on quickly, but when I come to an incline it slows right down to a crawl until I hit level ground again then it picks up speed again. Any idea what my problem might be.

Do you have 36 volts getting to the drive motor ? Check the wiring on the cables above and see if cables are are correct. Low speed on an incline is a sign of low voltage.
