OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. X3 & X3R
T-Handle Control Functions
The ON/OFF button controls the caddy’s main power supply. Once you have
connected the battery, make sure that the rheostat speed control is in OFF position (all the way
counterclockwise). Now press the button for 2-5 seconds in order to switch the caddy ON or
OFF (similar to a mobile phone operation). Now the battery charge indicator LEDs will
illuminate, and your caddy is ready for operation.
Battery Charge Indicator LEDs; after the caddy has been switched on, all LED lights
(green, yellow, red) should be illuminated simultaneously. This indicates that the battery
is fully charged. During play, as the battery is being discharged, first the green light
should go off, then the yellow, and, when only the red LED is illuminated, it is time to
recharge the battery.
High Power: Green Color
Medium Power: Yellow Color.
Low Power: Red Color
Timed Advance Distance Function:
When your press 10M, the trolley will run 10 Meters/Yards and stop by itself.
9
When your press 20M, the trolley will run 20 Meters/Yards and stop by itself.
When your press 30M, the trolley will run 30 Meters/Yards and stop by itself.
Rheostat Control: Speed can be seamlessly controlled manually via the round rheostat control
on the right side of the handle. Dial clockwise to get the caddy in motion and increase speed to
the desired walking speed. Dial counterclockwise to decrease speed and stop the caddy.
Cruise Control and Brake/Stop Function; to stop the caddy press the Cruise
Control/Stop button. Once you are ready to go again, press the button shortly, and the cart will
remember its last setting before you stopped and travel at the same speed automatically. You
can now change the speed again with the rheostat speed knob. NOTE: this button does not
start the caddy without it having been in motion before. It functions more like a cruise control
mechanism. To initially bring the caddy into motion please always use the rheostat speed
control.
Additional Functions
Freewheeling Mode; the caddy can be easily operated without power. In order to
activate the freewheeling mode, turn main power Off. The caddy now can be pushed
manually without resistance. (The freewheeling mode on some older models can also be
activated by pulling out both rear wheels by 1/2 inch (1cm) and relocking them back
into the second axle groove. Some models are equipped with both options.)
Tracking Adjustment; tracking behavior of all electric caddies is strongly dependent on
equal weight distribution and slope. Test your caddy’s tracking behavior by operating it
on an even surface without the bag. If changes are necessary, you can adjust the tracking
of your caddy by loosening the front wheel axle and the adjustment bar on the right side
of the front wheel and shifting the axle accordingly. After adjustment, fasten screws in
reverse order. Note: Don’t over tighten the nuts.
10
Installation of Seat
Attach seat stand to seat bottom using the four small screws.
Attention: Attach in such manner that the seat is parallel to the driving direction of the
caddy, with the opening facing the outside when you slide it into the holding bar.
Slide seat stand into holding bar as shown. Due to the spring mechanism, the seat
should reach the ground when pushed down, so the weight rests solely on the ground.
Note: DO NOT attempt to sit on the seat while trying to move the caddy, or frame
damage might occur!
Test caddy power supply by turning On/Off switch to On position (“I”) (Off is “0”). All
control lights (red, yellow, green) should come on and the caddy should be operable by
both the manual control on the handle and the remote controls. Note: Familiarize
yourself with the handle and remote control functions (X3R only) BEFORE you start
operating the caddy.
11
Remote Control Instructions (X3R Only)
Functions:
A. Brake: The red button in the middle of the directional arrows should be used for
braking the caddy.
B. Timer: 10, 20, 30 yards, Stop (same as manual control timer function)
C. Backward Arrow: Pressing the back arrow will set the caddy in backward motion.
Increase backward speed by pushing multiple times. Press also to decrease forward
speed/slow down the caddy
D. Forward Arrow: Pushing the forward arrow will set the caddy in forward motion.
Pushing multiple times will increase the speed.
E. Left Arrow: initiates left turns. When the arrows are released the caddy stops
turning and continues straight with the original speed prior to turning.
F. Right Arrow: same as left arrow function.
G. Strap: on the latest version the holding strap also serves as the antenna. DO NOT
pull out or cut. Otherwise the remote function will be impacted!

Important Notes – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
-
-
-
Change the remote control batteries once the indicator LED gets weak
The remote control uses two 1.5V AAA batteries available in any supermarket,
drug store, or electronics store
It is recommended to keep a set of extra batteries ready as replacement
To change the batteries, open up the battery compartment cover by pulling the
lever and place the batteries according to the diagram in the battery
compartment
The remote control system is designed to not interfere with other electric
caddies
The maximum range of the remote control varies between 80-100 yards,
depending on the battery charge, obstacles, atmospheric conditions, power
lines and the topography of the course.
It is strongly recommended to operate the caddy at a maximum range not
exceeding 50 yards in order to prevent the loss of control of the unit!

2. X3-LCD
Display Instructions
Short Distance and Total Distance: Short Distance measures the distance traveled during
your current round, allowing you to measure the distance of your drives, how far past a
distance marker your ball is, etc. Briefly pressing the ON/OFF button resets the Short
Distance measurement. The Total Distance reading, which cannot be reset, measures the
lifetime distance of the cart. Readings will be displayed in the metric system (1 meter = 1.1
yards or plus 10%; e.g. 100 meters = 110 yards)
13
Please note: distance measurements will only be correct if you travel in a straight line to your
ball.
The ON/OFF button; this button controls the trolley’s power. Press and hold it for 2-5
seconds for the caddy to turn ON/OFF. The LCD Display will light up and show the battery
charge level, speed indicator, and short and total distance measurement. Release once turned
The Preset Distance button; press this button once, and it will be preset to 20 meters
(22 yards); however, you can adjust the distance you wish your cart to travel by turning the
speed knob either clockwise (increase distance) or counterclockwise (decrease distance), and
then press the button again to start motion. The caddy will travel the distance you preset and
stop by itself. You can adjust the caddy’s speed seamlessly by turning the speed knob while it
is already in motion. When the caddy is in motion, you will see “A-B” flashing on the screen
display. If you wish to cancel this function while the caddy is in motion, simply press the
button again.
The Motion Indicator; this indicates that the caddy is in motion. This image will flash
on the display while the caddy is in motion, and it will disappear when the caddy comes to a
stop.

MAINTENANCE & ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. Battery Charging and Maintenance
-
-
-
PLEASE OBEY THESE PRECAUTIONS FOR BATTERY USE & CHARGING:
Please do not charge the battery in a sealed container or in upside down
position. It is recommended to charge the battery in a well ventilated area.
Please do not charge the battery near a heater, where heat accumulation may
occur, or in direct sunshine.
In order to prolong the service life of the battery, please avoid complete
discharge and charge the battery after every use. Unplug the battery from the
charger once the charge is complete. When the trolley is not in use for an
extended period of time, it is recommended to charge the battery once a month.
The battery’s poles’ red color stands for positive, and the black for negative. In
case of battery replacement please reconnect the poles of the battery correctly;
otherwise your caddy could suffer severe damage.
Please do not disassemble the battery or throw it into a fire; this will cause an
EXPLOSION!
NEVER TOUCH THE ELECTRIC POLES OF THE BATTERY! THIS IS A SEVERE
SAFETY HAZARD!
Battery Charging Instructions:
Connect the battery cable plug with the charger and then plug the charger into an
electrical outlet. During the charging cycle the LED on the charger will show a red
steady light. Once the charging cycle is complete the red light, will turn into a steady
green light. It is now okay to unplug the charger and battery for reuse. The charging
cycle can last up to 12 hours depending on the level of discharge.
Normally the battery will hold its charge for several months, and it does not have a
“memory effect”, and therefore can be recharged at any discharge level. It is not
recommended to fully discharge the batteries, as this will shorten battery life drastically.
The battery has a normal lifespan of approx. 150 charges, depending on charging
frequency, storage conditions, and time and discharge history, which could reduce this
lifetime. Before storing a battery for extended periods of time you must fully charge it.
DO NOT store a discharged battery or else it might become unusable. Replacement
batteries are available from your authorized dealer or directly from Bat-Caddy.
Recommendations
- Fully charge the battery for ca. 12 hours before the first use
- Do not leave the battery on the charger if it is not used for extended periods of
time; remove it from the charger after charge is complete
- The battery will take approximately 2-3 rounds and charging cycles before it
reaches its full operating potential. During the first couple of rounds it might
still be below its optimal power.
- Always keep your battery fully charged before another game
15
-
Never keep your battery connected to the grid during prolonged power outages.
It might be irreversibly damaged.
Do not fully discharge the battery by “overplaying” it. It is recommended to
recharge the battery after every 18 holes.
2. Testing Your Caddy
Test Environment
First, make sure that you perform your first test of the caddy in a wide and safe area,
free of obstructions or valuables, such as people, parked automobiles, flowing traffic,
furniture or water bodies (rivers, swimming pools etc.), steep hills, cliffs or similar
hazards.
Manual Control Operation
Test the manual function first: Turn the main switch to “On” (I) position. The manual
functions of the caddy are controlled through the rheostat control wheel on the right
side of the handle. Pushing the wheel forward (clockwise) will control the forward
movement of the caddy. In order to slow down or stop the caddy, turn the wheel
backwards (counterclockwise).
Remote Control Operation (X3R Only)
Make sure you are close to the caddy at all times while testing it and familiarizing
yourself with the remote control! Now turn on the main power switch and make sure
that the rheostat control wheel is in “0” position. One touch of the Forward/Backward
arrows on the remote control starts the caddy in either direction. Further pushes
increase the speed. In order to stop the caddy press round red STOP button in the
middle of the remote! To turn the caddy in either direction push the left or right
arrows briefly. Once you release the button the caddy will continue in the current
direction at the same speed prior to the turning command. You will notice that the caddy
reacts promptly to any turning command, so it will take you some practice to get just the
right touch for turning maneuvers. Please be aware that the turning characteristics will
change depending on the surface (grass, asphalt), the slope or the weight (loaded,
unloaded) of your caddy.
The remote is designed to have a reach of approximately 80-100 yards, but we strongly
recommend to operate the caddy in closer ranges of 10-30 yards (not exceeding 50
yards) to be able to react to any unforeseen events, such as other golfers crossing your
path or to avoid hidden obstructions (creeks, bunkers, GUR, etc.) or an unexpected
disconnection in remote operation. An additional safety feature of this caddy is that it
will stop moving if it does not receive a signal from the remote control at least every
30-45 seconds. This way, should you ever be distracted, your caddy does not completely
get away. By pressing the lower right button on the remote the caddy can be moved
forward automatically by 10, 20, or 30 yards.
16
3. Recommendations for Efficient and Safe Operation
-
Be alert and act responsibly at all times while operating your caddy, just as you
would when operating a riding cart, motor vehicle, or any other type of machinery.
We absolutely do not recommend the consumption of alcohol or any other
impairing substances while operating our caddies.
-
Do not operate the caddy carelessly in narrow or dangerous spaces, places with
valuables or any people gathering areas, such as parking lots, close to flowing traffic,
bag drop-off areas, stores, driving ranges, putting greens and practice areas, pro
shops, restaurants, starter areas and other areas where people or items could be
harmed through an error or lack of skill in operation. In such situations the caddy
should be best operated manually with or without power. Also, please make sure
to always switch off the power and secure the caddy when you park and leave
the unit for any reason, either on or off course.
-
With its optimized balance and straight front wheel, the caddy has extraordinarily
narrow and responsive turning and maneuvering abilities. However, it sometimes
tends to react to uneven weight distribution of its load or slope variations and will
follow the weight and the slope of the golf course, which is normal for electric
caddies. Therefore, please make sure that the weight in your bag is distributed
evenly (move heavy balls and items to both sides equally and to the upper part of
your bag, or shift the bag on the caddy). Also, when operating your caddy, anticipate
the slope of the course in order to avoid frequent corrections in direction. In some
extreme environments, such as very uneven terrain, steep hills, narrow and/or
sloped cart paths, muddy areas, gravel paths, close to bunkers and hazard, around
bushes and trees it is strongly recommended to operate the caddy via manual
control in order to prevent any collisions, damage or the need for complicated
correction adjustment maneuvers. When operating the caddy often in bumpy
terrain we recommend to add an additional bungee strap to the lower and/or upper
bag support to give the golf bag additional hold and prevent it from shifting.
-
Please avoid or minimize operation on hard and rough surfaces, such as cart paths,
asphalt roads, gravel roads, roots etc., as this will cause unnecessary wear and tear
on tires, wheels and other components. Bumping into hard objects might cause
damage. The caddy is best operated on soft and smooth surfaces such as fairways.
4. General Maintenance
The steps below will ensure that you get a prolonged and reliable life out of your
Bat-Caddy.
-
The Caddy has been designed so that the user can concentrate on playing golf, while
the caddy does the work of carrying your bag. In order to keep your Bat-Caddy
17
looking its best, we advise that you wipe any mud or grass from the frame, wheels
and chassis after every round with a damp cloth or paper towel.
-
NEVER use water hoses or high-pressure jet washers to prevent moisture entering
the electronic systems, motors, or gear boxes of the caddy.
-
Remove the rear wheels every few weeks and clean out any debris that might cause
the wheels to drag. You might also consider applying some lubricant, such WD-40, to
keep moving parts smooth and corrosion-free.
-
A 4-5 hour round of golf played once a week for 12 months is equivalent to ca. four
years’ use of a lawn mower, so please thoroughly inspect your cart at least once a year,
and if you notice any symptoms of wear, contact your Bat-Caddy Service Center.
Alternatively, you can have your caddy inspected and tuned by our Service Center, so
it’s always in great shape for the new season.
-
Always disconnect the battery when you store the caddy, and always put your caddy
together before re-connecting the battery. If you are not planning to play for at least a
month, store the battery in a cool and dry place (not on concrete floor) and don’t
leave it on the charger.
All of these recommendations and common sense will help keep your Bat-Caddy in top
condition and ensure that it remains your reliable partner, both on and off the links.
5. Electronic Systems
-
Remote Control Range: We recommend not to exceed 50 yards distance. The greater
the distance between you and caddy, the greater the chance of losing contact with it
-
Microcomputer: The remote caddy has 3 microcomputer controls: The first is in main
controller box. The second is in the remote control transmitter handset, and the third
is in the receiver in the handle.
-
Safety Protection: When the temperature of the controller box reaches its upper limit
in case of an overload it will automatically shut down to cool off.
-
Microprocessor Controlled Electronics System: When you connect the battery, the
electronics system will automatically run through a start-up routine. Then you can
press the main OFF/ON switch on the handle. The battery charge indicator lights will
show you the charge level of the battery from green (fully charged) to red
(discharged).
-
Important: The electronics controller box contains no user serviceable parts.
18
Therefore, it is sealed to reduce the risk of moisture entering and impacting the
electronic system. Breaking this seal increases the risk of damaging the electronics
and decreasing the reliability of your caddy. DO NOT attempt to open the controller
case. Doing so will void the warranty!
-
Battery Operation and Care: Follow battery charge and maintenance instructions.
The battery comes with leads and connector and a 30 Ampere fuse. Newer models do
not have a fuse anymore.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
In order to provide our customers with the most accurate and in-depth information
please read below some answers to the most frequently asked questions about electric
golf caddies in general and Bat-Caddy in particular.
GENERAL QUESTIONS
Why should I use an electric golf push cart vs. a regular push cart or a golf cart?
Bat-Caddy: Electric golf caddies provide you with a series of benefits, such as improved
health and fitness, weight loss, lower handicap and a better overall golf experience, as
well as economic benefits due to the saved rental cart fees. On Average a Bat-Caddy
pays back for itself within one season considering a $15.00-$20.00 rental cart fee. The
caddy basically gives you the experience to play like a Tour Professional, i.e. walking but
not having to carry, push or pull and thus avoiding any strain or fatigue which will most
definitely impact your golf game. The real question is why should I not use an electric
golf caddy and continue to carry my bag or waste money on riding cart rental fees?
Please also read our Product Benefits section on our website.
What is the difference between a remote controlled and a manually controlled
motorized golf trolley?
Bat-Caddy: The remote controlled caddy can be operated via a handheld remote
transmitter up to 100 yards distance. The manually controlled caddy is also power
assisted but steering and speed control needs to be performed manually on the handle,
so you will have to walk close to the caddy while operating it. The remote controlled
caddy can also be manually operated via a seamless rheostat control on the handle. It
especially comes in handy when walking off the fairway or after putting, because you
don't have to walk back to your cart.
How do I know if a motorized golf push cart is not too complicated for me to
operate and maintain?
An electric caddy does require some minimal technical understanding and affinity, as it
is a rather sophisticated, yet easy to use electrical/mechanical device with moving and
wear/consumable parts. Remote controlled carts require a little bit more
involvement/touch and forward looking operation than the manual carts, as they will
follow the topography of the course. Eventually, wear and consumable parts need to be
replaced, so look for a supplier who has all parts in stock and is transparent in parts
pricing. Our sincere advice is: if you don't know clockwise from counter clockwise, left
from right, plus from a minus battery pole or cannot read instructions or expect pushing
a button and the caddy will follow you from the 1st tee to the 19th hole - Don't buy an
electric golf cart!
Will the golf cart follow me?
Bat-Caddy: No! The type of carts that follow you are mostly obsolete or extinct. The
25
main disadvantage of this technology was that they tended to cut corners, i.e. run into
bunkers or water hazards once the operator went around them. You also needed to
switch them off before you went on the green and walk back to them after putting.
Today's remote control technology is more intuitive to use.
What is better? A rear wheel or a front wheel drive?
Front wheel driven caddies have some distinct disadvantages: Due to the motor being
integrated into the front wheel there is additional weight which needs to be lifted when
turning. Also the wheel spins when lifted, and the caddy tends to lose traction going
uphill. It's also more difficult to repair. The rear wheel drive is definitely the way to go!
What kind of golf bag should I be using with an electric caddy? Can I use my
current carry/stand bag?
Electric caddies are designed for standard cart bags. Carry bags with legs or uneven
weight distribution are not very well suitable, as the legs will prevent the bag from
being centered or properly affixed causing shifting during operation which will
negatively impact the tracking of the cart. Hence, we recommend a standard cart bag
with an even oval shape design, possibly with separate club compartments to prevent
club shifting and noise, and plenty of pockets to optimize weight distribution in the
bag/cart. Recommended dimensions are: 34.5" (minimum height) x 9" (width) x 11"
depth. Our bag supports accommodate many different shapes and sizes but the above
measurements are ideal dimensions.
What makes your caddies better than those of your competitors?
Bat-Caddy: Our caddies offer a unique and superior combination and balance of
performance features, design, quality, service and value. Bat-Caddy incorporates US and
European design and Marketing/Distribution savvy with Asian manufacturing
capabilities. Unlike some other brands our caddies are designed as motorized golf
caddies from ground up and not just retrofitted push carts. Please refer to our Product
Information section for detailed product features and benefits and don't hesitate to
compare us to any of our competitors at any level. When purchasing an electric caddy
please also always consider the after-sales service. According to many of our customers
Bat-Caddy has the industry's best customer service, and response time (Testimonials).
Our sincere advice: Never buy this kind of product from amateurs on auction sites other
than from our authorized dealers, or from shady/new outfits without real physical
addresses or service phone numbers. You want to make sure you get service and parts
when you need it during the life of your caddy and warranty back-up as advertised.
Check a company's track record, and if they actually have a real physical location. There
are various "imitators" on the market who have tried to copy our caddies as well as
Marketing strategy, but they are usually years behind and ship out of a "garage".
Bat-Caddy is a well established company since 2004 and considered the best value in
the market with the best customer service by our nationwide reputable
dealers/retailers. That's why we continue to grow at an amazing pace, despite the
26
current economic climate. We are a global company represented in the US, Canada,
Europe and Asia with an array of reputable retailers representing our product line.
BAT-CADDY QUESTIONS
Should I charge the battery once I receive the unit?
Bat-Caddy: Our 12V sealed lead acid batteries come more or less fully charged, but we
recommend to charge them for a full 12 hours before the first usage. The charger should
either have a blinking green light or a red light while it's charging and turn into a steady
green light when the battery is fully charged. The batteries develop their full potential
after a few full charging cycles. We recommend not to leave the batteries on charge for
longer periods of time. After a charging cycle is completed over night, unplug the
battery and it will hold its charge for weeks, if not months.
How long does the battery last?
Bat-Caddy: Our batteries are rated to last on average for at least 27 holes or 6-7 hours of
play per charge (anyone advertising longer operational functionality on the same
ratings batteries is very likely overstating the continuous battery performance).
Depending on the weight of your bag, topography of your course and the distance of
travel they might last longer or shorter. However, we recommend to recharge the
battery after every 18 holes or 5 hours of play, as complete drainage reduces the life
time of a battery significantly! The overall life time for sealed lead acid and any other
batteries used by any caddy OEM is dependent on a variety of factors, other than purely
the number of charges, including but not limited to frequency between charges,
duration of charge, level of drainage, idle time between usages, storage conditions and
duration and overall shelf life. We usually predict a battery lasting anywhere between
120-180 charging cycles, if it is used frequently and according to instructions. We do
cover our batteries 100% according to our published warranty policy, and any potential
additional coverage is at our discretion.
What do the lights on the handle mean?
Bat-Caddy: The red, yellow and green LEDs on the handle indicate the level of charge of
the battery. When the battery is fully charged they all should be lit. As the battery drains
itself first the green, then yellow will go off. If only the red is on it's time to recharge.
My caddy has no power when I try to turn it on?
Bat-Caddy: Please check if all electrical connections are tight. Also check the fuse in the
red cable of the battery leads within the battery carrying case. If broken please replace
with a standard 30 Amp automotive fuse.
My caddy tends to track to one side. What should I do?
Bat-Caddy: All caddies will follow the weight and slope. If the weight in your bag is
unevenly distributed the caddy will always tend to track to that side. Make sure that
your bag is balanced. Please test the tracking of your caddy without the bag on even
terrain. The tracking can also be adjusted by adjusting the front wheel with the
27
adjustment mechanism. Please open the axle screw and the tracking rod located on the
right side of the front wheel. Shift the wheel as needed and tighten the screws in reverse
order. During operation make sure the bag is positioned straight, the weight in your bag
is evenly balanced and does not shift.
Do caddies interfere with each other when playing with other Bat-Caddy carts?
Bat-Caddy: No. The remote controls have slightly different frequencies, so they don't
interfere with each other.
I lost or replaced my remote control and just received a replacement. How do I
reprogram or resynchronize the new unit?
Bat-Caddy: In order to resynchronize a new remote control you need to have the caddy
under power (turned on) with the rheostat speed control in OFF position. Best to reboot
(turn off and on) the caddy before starting the process. For pre-2010 models expose the
controller box in the battery tray by opening the plastic lid in the tray. Now push the
green button on the side of control box while simultaneously pushing either the forward
or reverse button on the new remote transmitter for ca. 10 sec. For 2010 models the
green button has been eliminated, so just point the remote onto the caddy a few feet
away and press forward or reverse for 10 sec. If the caddy does not start moving at
once, release and repeat process. Please make sure that the caddy is powered on during
this procedure. We recommend to take the wheels off or jack up the caddy during
resynchronization to prevent the caddy from getting away.
I received my 2011 Bat-Caddy model and it has the free new integrated
scorecard/umbrella holder accessory. How do I assemble it properly?
Bat-Caddy: Please find download assembly instructions on our website at
www.batcaddy.com .
The golf season is over and I am ready to store my Bat-Caddy? What is your
advice?
Bat-Caddy: We recommend to clean the caddy using a damp cloth or brush for the wheel
treads. DO NOT use a hose or power washer and keep moisture away from the
electronics in the handle and controller box/compartment! Lubricate and protect the
axles and wheel cores from oxidation with WD-40 or similar lubricant. Store in a dry,
cool/non-freezing place. Give the battery a final full charge over night, unplug and store
in a cool but non-freezing place. DO NOT leave the battery plugged into the caddy or
charger! DO NOT leave the battery on a concrete floor, but ideally place on a wooden
shelf. If possible recharge the battery every 6-8 weeks. Recharge before first use in
Spring, and you should be in great shape for the next season. Stay warm!
