ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

X8Pro & X8R

  1. Unpack all items carefully and check inventory. Place frame structure (one piece) on the soft clean ground to protect the frame from being scratched.
  2. Attach rear wheels to axles by pushing the wheel locking button (Pic-1) on the outside of the wheel and inserting the axle extension into the wheel. Make sure to keep the locking button on the outside of the wheel pushed in during this process, in order to enable the axle extensions, including the four pins (Pic-2), to be inserted all the way into the axle sprocket. If not locked in, the wheel will not be connected to the motor and will not be propelled! Test the lock by trying to pull the wheel out.
    Note; the X8 caddy has a right (R) and a left (L) wheel, seen from behind in a driving direction. Please make sure that the wheels are assembled on the correct side, so the wheel tread will match each other (Pic-3) as well as the front & anti-tip wheels. To disassemble the wheels, proceed in reverse order.BATCADDY X8 Pro Electric Golf Caddy-Pic 1
  3. Erect the frame by first unfolding and connecting the mainframe sections together at the upper frame lock by fastening the upper frame locking knob (Pic-5). The lower frame connection stays loose and will be in place once the golf bag is attached (Pic-6). Proceed in reverse for folding the caddy.BATCADDY X8 Pro Electric Golf Caddy-Pic 4
  4. Place the battery pack on the battery tray. Insert the 3-prong battery plug into the caddy outlet so the notch aligns properly and attaches T-connector onto the battery.
    Then attach Velcro strap. Tightly fasten the Velcro strap underneath the battery tray and around the battery. It is recommended that you DO NOT  fasten the screw on the plug to the outlet, so in case of tip-over, the cable can unplug from the socket.
    Note: BEFORE CONNECTING make sure that caddy power is OFF, Rheostat Speed Control is in OFF position and the remote control is stored securely!BATCADDY X8 Pro Electric Golf Caddy-Velcro strap
  5. Insert the anti-tip wheel into holding the bar on the motor housing and secure it with a pin.BATCADDY X8 Pro Electric Golf Caddy-motor housing aX8R Only
  6. Unpack remote control and install batteries with plus and minus poles as indicated in the diagram in the receiver compartment of the unit.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES:

  1.  Your Bat-Caddy comes with an automatic shut-down feature to help prevent “run-away” Caddys when operating remotely. If the caddy does not receive a signal from the Remote-Control after the last button push for approximately 40 seconds, it will assume the caddy has lost contact and stop automatically. If this happens simply push any button on the remote control to resume operation.
  2. While the maximum range for your Bat-Caddy to receive a signal from your RemoteControl is 80-100 yards, this range is in perfect “laboratory”  conditions. It is strongly recommended that you operate your Bat-Caddy at a maximum of 20-30 yards. This will help prevent any signal interference and/or loss of control.

SYNCHRONIZING YOUR REMOTE:
If your Bat-Caddy will not respond to your Remote-Control it may need to be resynchronized.
A. Power off your Bat-Caddy for 5 seconds.
B. Turn on your Remote-Control
C. Press and hold down the STOP button on the Remote-Control
D. Press and hold down the ON/OFF button on the Control Panel until the green LED light under the battery symbol begins to blink.
E. Release both buttons
F. Your Caddy and Remote-Control are now synched and ready to go.

Additional Functions

Freewheeling Mode: The caddy can be easily operated without power. In order to activate the freewheeling mode, turn the main power OFF. Then disengage rear wheels from the motor/gearbox and slide the wheel from the inner grove (Pic-1)on the axle to the outer grove (Pic-2). Make sure the wheel is secure in the outer curve. The caddy now can be pushed manually with little resistance. BATCADDY X8 Pro Electric Golf Caddy-Additional Functions

Tracking Adjustment*: The tracking behavior of all-electric caddies is strongly dependent on equal weight distribution on the caddy and slope/topography of the golf course. Test your caddy’s tracking by operating it on a level 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 from wheel and shifting the axle accordingly. After such adjustment fastens screws in reverse order but do not over-tighten.

The USB port is available for charging GPS and/or cell phones. It is located in the end cap of the upper frame above the handle control.

Braking System

The caddy drive train is designed to keep the wheels engaged with the motor, thus acting as a brake that will control the caddy’s speed while going downhill.BATCADDY X8 Pro Electric Golf Caddy-Braking System

The caddy drive train will control the caddy speed downhill.

Testing Your Caddy

Test Environment
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, bodies of water (rivers, swimming pools, etc.), steep hills, cliffs or similar hazards.
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 or in narrow or dangerous places. Avoid using your caddy in places where people may gather, such as parking lots, drop-off areas, or practice areas, to avoid damage to people or valuables. We recommend operating your caddy manually in crowded areas with or without power. Please make sure to always switch off the power and secure the caddy when you are through or when not in use.

General Maintenance

All of these recommendations, along with 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.

  • The Bat-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 looking its best, wipe any mud or grass from the frame, wheels and chassis after every round using a damp cloth or paper towel.
  • NEVER use water hoses or high-pressure jet washers to clean your caddy to prevent moisture from entering the electronic systems, motors, or gearboxes.
  • Remove the rear wheels every few weeks and clean out any debris that may cause the wheels to drag. You may apply some lubricant, such as WD-40, to keep moving parts smooth and corrosion-free.
  • A 4 to 5 hour round of golf played once a week for 12 months is equivalent to approximately four years’ use of a lawnmower. 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 at our Service Centers, so it’s always in great shape for the new season.
