Collapsible Vs Standard Golf Carts .........What’s The Difference?

Updated: Jul 10, 2022

Let’s look at the difference between the two types of carts. The standard golf carts are the ones you see on golf courses, campgrounds, horse shows, rallies and retirement villages, to name a few. They are available in both gas and electric. The electric golf cart is more popular than gas. The size of a standard four-seater is 110-in.x 48-in. x 70-in. The cart will fit into a full-size truck bed or a trailer to tow behind your vehicle. Most standard size golf carts come with headlights but no taillights. The speed of a standard cart is anywhere between 12 and 14 mph. The difference between the 36- and 48-volt cart is the 48 volt has a higher low-end torque, which you will feel when you accelerate. The 48 volts gives you more pep in your step. The collapsible cart is a golf cart that shrinks down in length for transporting and storage. Depending on the size of the car, they do fit into most full-size SUVs and also 5 1/2 foot truck beds. Travel by motorhome is easier than ever with a collapsible cart. No more need for a full-size truck to transport your cart. Load the cart into your full-size SUV or truck and attach the vehicle to your RV and off you go! The collapsible cart allows you to take your cart with you and not have to worry about renting one at your destination. It pays for itself after a while! The Mantis Micro Cruzer SD is a hybrid collapsible cart. Fully extended, the cart is 90.9-inches in length, and it collapses down to about 63.3 -inches. It is a 48-volt cart that also has a solar panel on the roof to collect and store energy while in use or sitting idle. The Mantis Micro Cruzer also has halogen headlights, turn signals on steering column, backup alert and a horn. It comes standard with seatbelts, 2 USB ports and a VIN number to get it street ready, where allowed. The Mantis Micro Cruzer golf cart also comes equipped with a 360-degree mirror. The cart holds 4 people with a weight limit of 695-lbs. The folding rear seat gives you extra cargo storage for when you’re on the go. The hardtop roof that is included is painted the same color as the cart and a fold down windshield is also standard. The Micro Cruzer has an Hydraulic fluid after upgraded front and rear suspension for a better ride. The wheels on a Mantis cart come standard with 16.5-in wheels with aluminum alloy rims.
