Which Golf Trolley Is Better – PowaKaddy FX7 GPS or Motocaddy M5 GPS?


An electric golf trolley is guaranteed to take the strain off your body, preserve your energy for the game, and allow you to take more than the bare essentials onto the golf course. But with so many options available – how do you know which one to choose?

Motocaddy and PowaKaddy own more than 90% of the UK electric golf trolley market. Although they release new products every year, the PowaKaddy FX7 GPS EBS and the Motocaddy M5 GPS DHC (both from 2021) are two of our absolute favourites at Clarkes’ Golf Centre!

Here’s why…

The PowaKaddy FX7 GPS golf trolley is one of the most intelligent trolleys of its kind. It features an electronic braking system (EBS) that automatically slows down when travelling on steep slopes, and can maintain the desired walking speed to ensure you’re always in full control.

The award-winning Motocaddy M5 GPS golf trolley comes with Downhill Control (DHC) technology, ensuring that the trolley maintains a steady speed on the hilliest of courses. Its all-terrain wheels and electronic parking brake also enable you to secure the trolley on undulating ground.

Below we explore the differences between the PowaKaddy FX7 and Motocaddy M5, to help you make an informed decision.


Size and weight

One thing to bear in mind when choosing an electric golf trolley is that you’re going to need to lift it in and out of your car and the garage.

Opting for a model that’s lightweight and easy to fold down can be a real boon – especially if you have a bad back or want to save your energy for the round.

While both the Motocaddy M5 and PowaKaddy FX7 have small folding footprints, the M5 is the smallest of the two. It features the award-winning M-Series folding technology, which means it can fit into the tiniest of car boots.

Although it doesn’t fold down quite as compact as the M5, the FX7 boasts a simple 1-Click Folding System and is actually 20% smaller than any other PowaKaddy trolley!



Many electric trolleys these days come with fully integrated GPS functionality built-in – including both the M5 and FX7.

These innovative models from PowaKaddy and Motocaddy have more than 40,000 pre-loaded courses, which are displayed on a 3.5 inch touchscreen in full colour.

The PowaKaddy FX7 can easily be connected to a smartphone app, which is free to download from Google Play and the App Store – allowing for quick course updates.

The Motocaddy M5 trolley can also be connected to a free app via Bluetooth and can display your smartphone notifications. On top of this, it has built-in Wi-Fi, guaranteeing rapid over-the-air course and system updates.



The PowaKaddy FX7 GPS golf trolley is available in 18-hole and 36-hole battery options. It features the Plug’n’Play 30v battery system, which is the most powerful, thinnest and lightest lithium battery on the market. It also has a battery top isolator with an LED indicator that makes it easier for you to turn off when you’ve finished using the trolley.

The Motocaddy M5 GPS trolley comes with an 18- or 36-hole lithium battery, which is super lightweight and waterproof. It has an IP66 water and dust rating that protects against all weather conditions and offers 9 speed settings – allowing you to stay in control of your trolley at all times.



It’s no secret that Motocaddy and PowaKaddy electric golf trolleys are packed with all sorts of extra features and accessories. Although they may sound great, you have to remember that, in reality, you might not use them all.

The PowaKaddy FX7 GPS golf trolley boasts a stunning widescreen display. What’s more, you don’t need to remove your golf glove to use the touchscreen.
