KJS Products introduces Golftrucks: late model conversions to golf cars to efficient utility trucks featuring four, six, and eight foot flatbed decks. Moving products, plants, produce, pallets, etc. is now easier! Low deck heights make hand loading and unloading simpler. And a 1,000 lb. load capacity makes these utility vehicles a preferred choice for many hauling jobs.
We start by cutting a golf car apart, replacing the back end with a true truck chassis and a heavier suspension. We make all necessary modifications and extend linkages. The frame is powder coated and the deck is lined with treated plywood.
Golftrucks come standard with backup alarm, front headache rack, rear window and stake pockets. Electric trucks also include state of charge meter (gas gauge for batteries) and charger. Plug it into any 110 outlet at day’s end and it turns itself automatically when fully recharged. With good batteries, an electric Golftruck will easily move goods all day.
We prefer electric for out own use because of the power you get as soon as you push the accelerator pulling a heavier load, and for the quiet ride. Talking to co-workers, taking telephone calls and conversing with passengers and customers is easier with the electric. We’ve been talking about purchasing the new longer duration batteries since they came out a few years ago if we find the standard one won’t last our work day length, but as of yet have no need to do so. It’s nice to know they’re available if we ever feel otherwise.
Electric trucks also eliminate chasing gas cans and extra maintenance, and there’s no exhaust fumes in case we’re inside buildings. Electrics cost us less to buy and less to convert. Besides the motor and batteries, all there really is to them is a solenoid and a controller. Which one is best for your business really comes down to personal preference. We build both. Gas models are a better choice for anyone carrying goods longer distances, or for transporting people all day. And we recommend them if you can’t or would rather not return the truck to the same location each day’s end to recharge (batteries can give you extra years if they’re topped off after each days’ use). Gas trucks also feature a huge under-seat tool box about a foot deep, 16″ wide, and 22″ long. It’ll hold a lot of tools, your lunch, whatever. It can also be filled with ice to keep employee beverages cool.
Additionally, we designed a line of deck bodies that can quickly and temporarily convert the flatbed into a specific use vehicle. Plant picking racks for nurseries, Mobile produce stand, adjustable flower racks for greenhouses, service body or U-pick transports for moving people and berries back to the parking area. And after the season ends, switch it back to flatbed truck in minutes. Your truck doesn’t need to be dedicated to a single purpose.
Golf cars have been manufactured for over fifty years and golf course owners depend on them to produce their only income. We convert three year old cars from the Midwest that typically have less than two years run time on them. Parts and service are available nationwide and all drive components remain standard equipment. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with turning radius of the eight foot. Golftrucks can easily be this year’s capital investment with the greatest return for any small business.
If you need a dependable utility vehicle that can move goods faster, has a comfortable ride, can transform into several additional models, and don’t have five figures to spend, then a Golftruck is a good way to go, Lead times are typically 30 days to build one to a customer’s preference.
