Cushman® is proud to introduce the next evolution in golf utility vehicles, a fully electric Cushman Hauler™ PRO with a 72-volt AC drivetrain that provides the range and power once exclusive to gas-powered machines in a silent, zero-emissions vehicle. Cushman vehicles are manufactured by the E-Z-GO Division of Textron Inc.
“This new Cushman Hauler PRO gives superintendents the range and power of a gas-powered UTV, but in a silent, electric model a golf course needs,” said Mike Parkhurst, Vice President, Golf for E-Z-GO and Cushman. “Cushman has a history of providing superintendents with reliable vehicles to tackle any job and the Hauler PRO is no different.”
The new Hauler PRO features a 72-volt AC electric drivetrain, upgraded from more traditional 48-volt systems, that offers up to 50 fully-loaded miles of range between charges. The patented AC Drive technology also ensures that the Hauler PRO maintains consistent power and performance from the first pre-dawn chores to the last light of dusk, without the noisy drone of a gas engine.
The AC Drive technology is up to 25 percent more energy-efficient than DC technology, and also provides for unique features such as regenerative braking that recharges the batteries whenever the vehicle’s brakes are applied and also speed control to maintain constant speeds up and down steep slopes.
The Hauler PRO is equipped with a standard on-board charger, which provides the convenience of charging the vehicle at any outlet within a property and eliminates the need for a separate bulky charger. An optional 12V outlet is also available.
An optional limited-slip differential provides for greatly improved traction on wet or loose turf, while helping to protect fairways from damage due to wheel slippage.
The Hauler PRO features a maximum load capacity of 1,000 pounds and come standard with a 9.5-cubic-foot cargo bed. A 14.9-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed will be available as a factory-installed option for facilities that require more cargo space.
