The CaddyTrek CT200BA (also simply known as the FTR CaddyTrek to some) is an automated electric golf cart from FTR Systems that faithfully follows 2-3 yards behind you as you walk in “follow” mode. While the frame is waterproof, the control box is rain and sprinkler proof only. So while the CaddyTrek will work fine in light rain or drizzles, make sure not to lead it into the nearest pond (while you might want to throw the transceiver and clubs into the nearest pond in a fit of rage, the CaddyTrek will follow it right in, and that will be the end of that). If that is a concern, you can can also operate the cart in “remote” mode, where you can send the unit up to a range of 150 yards at a top speed of 4mph.
If you’re spouse claims you haven’t been hitting the gym enough, you’ll be able to reply that you have been doing 39 pound squats (with the lithium ion battery), or on off days, 33 pounds (if you take the battery and cart out of your vehicle separately. The 24 volt lithium ion battery lasts up to 27 holes, charges in 6 hours, and should be good for approximately 2 years (500 charges).
The cart is powered by 250 watt dual motors, with an adjustable push handle. There is a real-time battery charge indicator on both the battery and the handset. The aluminum frame collapses into a reasonable 23″ x 18″ x 12″, unfolded is 36″ x 34″ x 23″ and can support 44 pounds, which will be able to handle all but the most Rodney Dangerfieldesque golf bags. The cart is available in two colors for the shell – Black and Candy Apple Red. There is a 1 year warranty on parts and labor.
