We’ve added a new option for our Cushman Haulers, a rear cargo bed canopy which provides a light-weight & weather-proof cover for the roto-moulded cargo bed, and can be fitted to the all our Cushman Hauler and Cushman Hauler X vehicles.
Our design uses a light-weight frame to support the canopy, this is secured to the roto-moulded 12ft3 cargo bed with straps and still allows the bed to tip as before. The frame can be customised with shelves and racks so you can organise your tools and equipment. Access to the bed is via the zipped flap which can be rolled up and kept open if required thanks to two clips at the top.
Like our aluminium box options, this offers a dry and versatile storage space for moving large quantities of materials and equipment to where they’re needed. The biggest advantage of the canopy is that it’s significantly lighter than the aluminium box option, meaning that the same vehicle will keep more of it’s range. The other advantage over the box is that the canopy and frame can be easily removed incase the need arises.
The cargo bed canopy can be further customised and can be ordered in a number of different colours, with company branding too, should you wish.
The Cushman Hauler Pro X shown here also has an all weather cab, tow hitch and mirrors fitted. Other options available include:
led light bars
all terrain tyres
If you want any further information on the cargo bed canopy, the Cushman Hauler range or any of our vehicles, parts & accessories, then send us a message or call us on 0345 8055 494.
We’ve just delivered a new E-Z-GO RXV ELiTE buggy, fitted with a rear box, to the Army Parachute Association at Netheravon Airfield – the home of the British Army’s The Red Devils Parachute Display Team
There have been hangars at Netheravon since 1913, and in fact it’s believed to be the oldest military airfield, in continuous use, in the world. The latest arrival is the Army Parachute Association’s new E-Z-GO RXV ELiTE buggy, perhaps not the most significant moment in the airfields 105 year history but it’s a useful tool supporting their daily flight operations.
Perfect for the role
Taking the standard RXV ELiTE golf car and fitting a rear cargo box, this buggy will now be transporting personnel, power packs, and items such as aircraft chocks all over the airfield. The power packs are used to start the Cessna Grand Caravan drop-plane, an aircraft that over the summer will regularly make 20 ascents every day! By using these packs they actually help to reduce the wear & tear on the aircraft and make it possible to get up as often as they do.
Other duties that the APA’s new ELiTE buggy will be required to perform is to ferry personnel all over airfield, including taking drivers over to their fuel tanker and ground handlers to waiting aircraft. The extra range offered by the ELiTE’s lithium batteries was one of the reasons the Army Parachute Association chose the RXV ELiTE, possibly the biggest factor was the maintenance free lithium batteries and the reduced weight of the buggy which makes the vehicle much kinder to the grass airfield, even when it’s really soft underfoot.
Army Parachute Association
The APA was founded in 1962 after vigorous and persistent campaigning by Lt Col Dare Wilson MBE, MC, commanding officer of 22nd SAS. Prior to then, various military units had formed their own clubs and operated independently. Initially the APA had no permament basebut travelled, with their aircraft, to any drop zone available, the only rules being that the pilot and plane had to be fuelled and carefully looked after! The APA is a not-for-profit organisation and uses all income generated to continually improve both the services and facilities for it’s members.
One thing that has never changed is the enthusiasm and spirit of APA members. To this day they are still producing some of the best parachutist in the UK, many of whom regularly represent Great Britain on the World Stage. The APA support more military jumpers than ever and subsidise veterans, TA and reservists as well as serving servicemen and women. The Army Parachute Association also regularly host National competitions and are fast gaining the reputation for being a premier competition venue in the UK. What’s more, through tandem jumps, the APA are supporting a huge array of Charities and have assisted in raising a lot of money for thousands of charities all over the UK.
If you’re an experienced skydiver, want to learn to skydive or just want to experience skydiving via a tandem jump, head over to www.netheravon.com and the APA will be happy to help you achieve your goal!

At the end of last year, Oxford City Council and Oxford County Council introduced joint proposals to become the first of the UK’s zero emissions cities, by establishing a Zero Emissions Zone in Oxford city centre, a plan that would see historic reductions in air pollution.
Oxford City Council’s plan to become the first in a series of zero emissions cities in the UK, includes the phasing out and eventual ban of petrol and diesel cars, taxis and busses by the year 2020. London has also announced similar plans, wanting to introduce the world’s first Ultra-Low Emission Zone to the capital by September 2020. The plan for Oxford city centre zone will expand as vehicle technology develops, with the ultimate goal to incorporate all vehicle types across the whole city by 2035. The aim is to significantly reduce the air pollution levels in the city centre by up to 75%!
Going forwards, more electric vehicle charging points will need to be installed to support the cities infrastructure and allow the widespread use of electric vehicles across Oxford.
Light Utility Vehicles in Zero Emissions Cities
All this progress is dependant on the vehicle technology being developed to support the goals of Oxford City Council. Having said that, having a fleet of versatile, reliable and professional looking light utility vehicles right now is a real possibility.
Electric light utility vehicles are comparable to their petrol or diesel equivalents at time of purchase, vital for any fleet manager looking to keep a tight lid on their budget. And despite charging costs, electric vehicles are significantly cheaper to run and maintain as they have minimal moving parts, lowering maintenance time and costs. Zero emissions cities would be able to easily operate fleets of electric light utility vehicles which could be used by all staff, as they’re well suited to fulling a whole range of jobs.
Golf Car UK Solutions
While we specialise in golf buggies, Golf Car UK has fleets of utility vehicles and passenger shuttles across the country. Vehicles like our Cushman Hauler Pro offer excellent functionality and flexibility while delivering up to a 50 mile range on a single charge. This makes them incredibly useful as delivery or support vehicles, especially in parks and pedestrianised ares, and more effective than conventional trucks or vans.
And there’s no reason that Zero Emission Cities couldn’t utilise the Cushman Hauler Pro to help them meet their environmental goals. They can be easily customised with logos and hazard stickers, there’s a full enclosed cab available as an option and beacon lights can be fitted.
What’s more, these vehicles can have their maximum speeds set, minimising risk to operators and the general public. The Hauler Pro can be made road legal too, allowing it to transit people, materials and tools between areas of busy Zero Emission Cities.
We’ve just taken delivery of our RXV ELiTE demonstrator! And to say we’re impressed would be an understatement.
There aren’t any cosmetic changes when side by side with the standard RXV, other than the ELiTE badge on the dashboard, but when you lift up the seats you begin to see where EZGO’s technology revolution really makes it’s mark.
Normally we would find a selection of batteries, battery filling system, charger and controller. But our RXV ELiTE demonstrator only has black plastic shielding, with ‘Activated by SAMSUNG SDI’ moulded into the top. There’s just two terminals visible and plenty of stickers… and that’s it!
The ‘zero battery maintenance’ selling point is definitely a huge plus, there’s no filling system or extra leads to manage. Clubs around the UK will see this as a dream, it’ll make the every day tasks needed to keep a buggy fleet working and earning, a thing of the past.
A lack of batteries also equates to a lack of weight. 125kg less weight to be in fact! That’s going to be welcome news for all green keepers who will see their grass taking less strain.
Our RXV ELiTE demonstrator also has a few extra options, the premium seats look fantastic on the RXV anyway and just adds a touch of extra comfort. They were certainly notable during our test-drive and the performance of our RXV ELiTE demonstrator, delivered to us with half a charge, was consistent and very responsive on the throttle.
We’re certain that this technological revolution will more than just spark the interest of golf clubs around the country. Thanks to the zero maintenance lithium batteries, consistent performance, greater efficiency and the unprecedented 5 year warranty.

ELiTE Series vehicles give you the lowest operating costs the industry has ever seen.
EZGO® has taken another leap forward with their golf car technology with its ELiTE™ Series vehicles. These revolutionary electric golf cars are powered by Samsung SDI lithium technology, offering high efficiency, zero maintenance as well as an unprecedented five year, unlimited amp hour, warranty!
50% More Efficient!
EZGO has utilised the potential of lithium battery technology that gives an all-day up time, while dramatically cutting energy costs.
All the EZGO ELiTE series vehicles use Samsung lithium cells in a single battery pack, which use less energy, charge in half the time and require less power from the mains than the leading acid battery competitor.
It’s something you won’t even notice, because it is working so well! The consistent performance that the ELiTE series buggies offer over time, is one of the biggest differences between acid and lithium batteries.
This consistent performance means that you and your golfers have the acceleration and hill climbing power, all at the press of the throttle pedal.
Because the ELiTE series are powered by a much smaller set of batteries, they’re also lighter. Significantly lighter than the equivalent acid battery set
Subsequently the vehicle is less loaded, along with the turf. This makes the care of the vehicle and turf much easier.
Zero Maintenance Hours
With these lithium batteries, there’s no need to keep the water levels topped up and no need to keep terminals clean like acid batteries.
These batteries don’t require the labor and the time spent on them to keep them functioning, meaning your vehicles are running and earning more of the time.
These ELiTE batteries use less energy than a conventional set, and they also utilise a greener technology to produce them.
While also being cleaner to make and use, they also last significantly longer, so they spend more time driving your golf car and less time being recycled.
5 Year Warranty
You read that right. The ELiTE series batteries come with an unprecedented 5 year warranty, demonstrating EZGO’s confidence in the enduring reliability and performance of the technology.
This Unlimited Amp Hour warranty lowers the potential long term costs, so you and your club can eliminate out of warranty battery repair bills.
The technology is already in use in electric cars, scooters and power tools. Putting lithium batteries in golf cars was a perfect match with an already existing electric vehicle.
And the system is all controlled by an advanced battery management system that monitors, battery health, state of charge, performance and efficiency.
