Club Car or Yamaha?


New Member
My school in San Diego is looking to purchase a golf cart for our activities program. We typically haul chairs, tables, and stanchions (about 30 lbs each) across campus, which includes a few long hills. I usually have a few students who "hop on" and accompany me wherever we are going too.

I am looking for the best cart for the money and durability. I have two quotes. One is for a Yamaha YDRE Extended Hauler which has an 800 lb payload capacity (not sure if that's just the bed or the bed and cab combined) and the other is for a Carryall (by Club Car) which has a 1500 lb payload capacity (1000 in the bed and I'm assuming 250 in the cab). The Yamaha with all extras and tax is $7800 and the Carryall is $10600.

One of the questions I have, with the obvious being which is better, is the charging system. The Yamaha has a portable charger, while the CarryAll has an on-board charger. Which is better? Do they both charge at the same rate?

Any feedback to help me make the best educated decision is appreciated!


The Club Car Carryall is a tough cart. The chargers will be close to the same output and charge time. Those prices seem pretty high though...

Well you could also think about buying an American product. Keep the folks in Augusta, GA working.
Also Club Car makes some great products and they cannot be worn out.
