 First, it’s a golf cart powerful enough to carry two adults and equipment
up steep slopes. But it’s also a heart-saver for the aged, “legs” for an
invalid, and a “school bus” or shopping “car” for Mom. It features
twin-motor drive, four speeds forward and reverse, coil-spring suspension,
2-wheel brakes and tricycle steering, plus a built-in battery charger
PART I
SPEEDS UP TO 20 m.p.h. and 30 to 40
miles on a single charging of the batteries make this cart an ideal utility
vehicle for any home, farm or business.
The cart is wide and low, both to assure
stability on any terrain and to provide
ample room for any of several combinations of motors and batteries.
First step in the construction is to make
the main frame, Figs. 7 and 10, of steel
channels and angles. Arc welding is required in this assembly. The next step
after the main frame is assembled is to
assemble the drive-unit frame, Figs. 7
through 11. The rear cross member of this
frame is a length of 3/4-in. pipe that pivots

in two U-shaped brackets bolted to plates
that are welded to the rear cross member
of the main frame. The brackets are a
loose fit on the pipe. Strips of inner-tube
rubber then are wrapped on the pipe under
the brackets to provide a “snubbing” pivot.
Stub axles for the rear wheels are welded
to a length of pipe to produce a complete
axle, that will give a width of 41-1/2 in. between the outer sides of the tires. This
leaves a clearance of 3/4 in. between the
tires and the outer edges of the cart’s
main frame. The drive-unit frame is made
narrow enough to clear the brake drums
on the wheels. Coil springs used in the
rear suspension are kept aligned by 3/4-in.
