There are lots of people around looking to customize their golf carts for a variety of uses. One of the fastest growing segments is for utility use, more specifically work beds. Just in case you aren't familiar with the beds types we offer, I would like help clarify the advantages and disadvantages of each.
PLASTIC BEDS: Our plastic beds are made of a durable black plastic with a lightweight aluminum frame. Plastic beds are corrosion resistant, lightweight, and are capable of lots of abuse. These beds tend to be a more ideal choice for electric golf carts as the weight being pulled by the motor is a large factor. The only disadvantage of this type of bed is reduced payload size. Plastic beds are very easy to clean with a water hose and look great for years.
ALUMINUM BEDS: Our aluminum beds are slightly heavier than there plastic counterparts, but are capable of withstanding much more stress and abuse. Aluminum is a light weight, less-corrosive metal and is protected with an anodized coating. They are easy to clean and will last for many years. These beds can carry a larger payload than plastic, but not as much as the steel. Aluminum beds also tend to be a good choice for electric cars.
STEEL BEDS: Our steel beds are constructed of heavy duty steel which will stand up to more abuse than any other type of bed. These beds are durable and have a black powder coat finish. Steel beds are capable of carrying a higher payload, but are much less corrosion resistant than the plastic or the aluminum. These are much heavier than the other two and tends to be more suited for gasoline powered golf carts.
Note: For those of you who wish to do some heavy hauling, please consider the possibility of installing heavy duty suspension components, such as heavy duty shocks and leaf springs. Most cars are designed to carry 800 lbs. including any passengers and payload or golf bags.
