2018 PowaKaddy Freeway Electric Trolley Range Unveiled

PowaKaddy has made a number of upgrades to its popular Freeway range of electric trolleys for 2018, with new FW3s and FW5s models joining the flagship FW7s trolley.

Both the FW5s and FW7s trolleys have been enhanced with a classy Gunmetal colour for 2018, whilst the FW3s will be available in Polar white and Classic black options.

Available in both 18 and 36 hole options that are backed by a full five-year warranty, the powerful and slimline PowaKaddy Lithium battery boasts an integrated Battery Management System that protects the life of the battery and provides up to five times longer lifespan than lead acid equivalents.

“The Freeway family has very much become a brand of its own,” said PowaKaddy CEO David Catford. “We always strive to develop and innovate the range by adding new features that ultimately deliver more value for the golfer – the 2018 Freeway range does just that. We’re particularly excited about the new FW3s and FW5s which offer stunning display screens and other new features at no extra cost to the consumer.”

FW3s-Handle-new

At the entry level, the new FW3s now incorporates a new 2.3” full colour Widescreen display, digital power gauge and battery fuel indicator. It is also powered by a new whisper-quiet 230W motor, and benefits from an easy-to-use, ambidextrous soft T-bar grip to steer the trolley with ease. Prices start at £499.99 (lithium battery only) and the frame comes with a two-year warranty.
