2012 LONG TERM REVIEW

I buy a lot of kit, but I’ve never owned an electric trolley that I’ve enjoyed using – to me, they’re a bit of a faff. But after 10 months with this one I am totally converted to the benefits. The X7 Lithium is operated via a neat remote control – initially, this took a bit of getting used to, but now I’m fully switched on to how it works and it really has increased my enjoyment of the game. The best feature comes when you are searching for an errant drive – once you’ve located it, you can simply summon the trolley over!

In terms of negatives, the plastic clip on the remote that attaches it to the trolley has snapped, which means I have to carry the remote. The other thing is the handling – at fast speeds, it’s a dream to turn, but at slower speeds I find just the lightest of taps on the remote can cause the product to turn radically. Overall, it has huge wow factor.

Pros: The Stewart Golf X7 is a stunning looking modern trolley which quickly became a talking point at my club. The unit is surprisingly robust and it ferried my heavy staff bag around with consummate ease and seemingly little drain on the 36-hole (plus) lithium battery. The beauty of the X7 is the remote operation, once at a green I can send it off to the next tee or when finding my ball off the fairway I can simply steer the unit to me. And I love the looks.

Cons: Picking it up to pack away, it's not light even with the battery removed. Steering at low speeds can be tricky as it tends to turn quite swiftly, one dab on the remote will change its direction significantly so it's best to manually turn like a regular trolley. At higher speeds this is not the case though. Also winter wheels are a must in the wetter months as the alloys with lightly treaded tyres won't make it up the more severe slopes on a course.

Conclusion: Not the lightest, but ultimately a superb performer for those with lots of cash.

2010 REVIEW

What we like: You expect top performance for this price: happily, it is terrific. One of the USPs of the product is the remote control – the X7 Lithium’s handy controller performs very well, is easy to use, and can also be clipped on the handle. It’s a fantastic-looking trolley too and the muscular base adds stability.

What we don’t like: The only criticism anyone can ever have of a Stewart electric trolley is the price – you can buy a secondhand car for less than the RRP of the X7 Lithium! It’s also, dare we say it, a bit too big even when folded down. The Lithium battery option helps but it’s still a hefty unit.

Stewart Golf consists of a small group of specialist engineers who produce top-end electric trolleys, among other products. The new X7 launches in April and succeeds the X5. Looks-wise they’ve generally stuck with similar aesthetics. But the real developments have been under the chassis – the product now features a lithium battery rather than a lead acid one, which provides power for 27 holes, and the power system itself is now 30% more efficient than the X5. Oh, and they’ve reduced the price too from £1,200 down to under a grand.

Battery options: Lithium phosphate battery £999.
Weight: 14kg.
Warranty: 2 years.

    Purchased my X7 2 years ago and haven't had hardly any problems with it, except had to buy a new handle after snapping the original. Also, the clip on the remote breaks easily and I have used two sided velcro on the remote and the clip handle..works perfectly! Had to have a wheel bearing sent out to me here in Spain, but that was quick, even though it cost me extra to have it sent by UPS! Very pleased with mine.

  • 1 out of 5 A frustrating and expensive experience

    By Woodyboy

    I first purchased the x7 in July 2012, the original trolley had to go back the factory 4 times as it kept breaking down, anything from the control unit to a dodge battery and charger, after kicking up much fuss they agreed to replace it with a new machine in January 2013, I used this trolley very little but the new one has started letting me down again and has once again had to go back for repair, I have requested a full refund but Stewart golf will not offer anything other than another repair . My advice would be to avoid this product as the performance in my experience doesn't match the price tag and although the collection service is pretty good that's the only positive thing I can add. In summary I have a £1000 trolley that I can't use as I have no idea when it's going to stop working again.
