Need To Know
Motocaddy’s compact M-Series electric trolleys have been flying off the shelves and the new M7 REMOTE is no different. It replaces the S7 REMOTE model and is a massive upgrade, in terms of design, size and technology.
As with all M-Series models, the M7 REMOTE can fit into small car boots thanks to the compact-folding SlimFold system, which also allows you to reverse the wheels to save even more room.
Like all Motocaddy trolleys, the new M7 is extremely easy to set up and store away, something the brand has perfected over the last few years.
Watch the video below and check out GolfMagic's review of the M7 REMOTE at Farleigh Golf Club.
The latest hands-free trolley from Motocaddy features an anti-glare LCD screen that’s easy to read. Once the ultra lithium battery is plugged in, the screen will show the speed setting which starts on 2 and can be turned up to 9.
Motocaddy says that the ergonomic remote control is easy to use and they’re absolutely right, it couldn’t be more simple. To get your trolley on the move, you simply press the plus button on the remote and the trolley will begin to travel forward at the lowest speed setting. To make the trolley go faster, all you have to do is press the plus button again and every time you press it, the speed level will increase by one.
If you want to slow the M7 down, tap the minus button and the speed settings will start to go down with every press. When you want to bring the trolley to a halt, simply press the stop button in the middle of the remote and the M7 will instantly stop moving. If you’ve stopped your trolley a little bit late and gone past your ball, you can hold down the minus button and the M7 will move backwards until you let go.
Turning the M7 REMOTE is also extremely easy with an arrow facing right for right turns and an arrow facing left for left turns. If you tap one of the turning buttons, the trolleys will stay at its current speed and make a slight turn and then continue straight, but if you hold the button down in need of a sharper and harder turn, the trolley will slow itself down slightly and make a larger turn in the desired direction.
The remote control also features a lock button to stop you accidentally pushing any controls if you have the handset in your pocket while hitting a shot. There’s also a clip on the trolley where you can place the handset for easy access, or it can easily fit into one of your pockets, or clipped onto your belt.
You can also control the trolley from its handle by pressing the button and turning the dial to change the speed setting. To control the M7 using the remote again, just press one of the buttons and carry on as normal.
The M7 REMOTE has a handset range of up to 50 metres, which is extremely useful if you’re helping one of your playing partners find their ball as you can still direct the trolley to where you need to be to save time.
Unlike other M-Series trolleys, the M7 REMOTE features an extra wheel that acts as a stabiliser. This is so that when the trolley is travelling uphill, when it tilts back, the central wheel stops it from tipping over, something that you could visually see working very well.
The M7 features Automatic Downhill Control, which means when travelling downhill, the trolley’s speed will not change unless you tell it to.
Personally, I found the M7 REMOTE to be a fantastic electric trolley and a huge upgrade from the S7 model.
From a design perspective, the fact that Motocaddy has been able to launch a hands-free trolley in a compact design is fantastic, as the M-Series range in my opinion is the best electric trolley range on the market.
The M7 REMOTE was extremely responsive to the handset and is so easy to control that it takes no time at all getting used to.
Not having to worry about steering the trolley by holding onto it actually felt like a much better perk than I thought it would, as you feel completely relaxed whilst on the course, without having to worry about anything except your own game.
With an RRP of £999.99, the M7 REMOTE comes with a premium price tag, but you absolutely get your money’s worth and like all electric trolleys, it’s a long-term investment.
Once again, Motocaddy has proven themselves to be the leading trolley brand in the industry and if you’re in the market for a new electric trolley, then the M7 REMOTE should be top of your shopping list.
