We loved the first Downhill Control trolley when we reviewed the Motocaddy S1 DHC towards the end of last year.
It did what it said on the tin, did it very well, and at the time was the only trolley on the market to address the ongoing problem of downhill trolley control.
Now only a few months after is impressive introduction to the golf market, Motocaddy has added a second DHC model to its compact-folding M-series range.
The new model for 2017, the Motocaddy M1 Pro DHC incorporates the same features as the M1 Pro, but can also maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient. This new feature comes thanks to a new single motor that offers downhill braking, coupled with an electronic parking brake.
The trolley’s power output is adjusted automatically to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any changes to the pre-hill speed setting, while the electronic parking brake will hold its position on the steepest of slopes thanks to a new solenoid braking system.
Motocaddy Sales Director Neil Parker explains:
As well as the obvious advantage of greater control on undulating golf courses, the downhill control function is very easy to use and the S1 version has been extremely well received by UK golfers. So much so, that we quickly made plans to apply the same level of sophistication to the M-Series range and we’re proud to offer two distinct models in the electric trolley market capable of tackling steep gradients with ease
The M1 PRO DHC trolley is available early March in a sleek new Graphite colour with Standard Lithium battery that includes a full mouth-watering 5-year warranty.
If you’re an electric trolley user and in the market it for an upgrade, there is no reason why the M1 Pro DHC couldn’t add that little bit more ease to what we all know can be a pretty difficult sport at times and with an RRP of £549.99 with a Standard Lithium battery, or £599.99 for the Extended Lithium version, Motocaddy may just have halted your golf from continually falling downhill, and that is worth more than £500 of anybody’s money.
