new ride + remote =

Discussion in 'Irrigation' started by londonrain, May 17, 2008.

  1. new ride + remote = My dream job....
    As some of you fellow irrigators know, I manage and maintain large irrigation systems...I figured that I would get a cart so I could expedite the checkups. I now have 5 large properties under contract and the latest being 113 homes on seven central controller with 140+ zones plus another 100+ zones as construction continues ...
    I picked up a gas powered Yamaha golf cart with a small bed....
    5 gallon tank which should get 120 miles....

    The combo of the RainMaster remote and a golf cart will expedite the checkups... plus save on gas

    Cool beans London.
  5. What sold me on the cart was that I have a client that has a golf cart at his house. We rode around his property and checked out 30+ zones via my remote. Then we went to his office complex and checked out another 20+ zone on his other cart. I left and went straight to the golf cart dealer and the deal was done....

    Are you keeping it on their site? Or trailer it back and forth?
  8. Yeah but hard to carry stuff. I've had segway delusions for a long time.

    What kind of torque rating does it have for pulling a trailer? :laugh:
  10. I will be keeping it my house and I ordered a small trailer....
    I am thinking that I can cut one of the monthly checkups, the 69 homes system, down to 6 hrs from the current 8 hrs that it now takes...
