This thing still runs, it sits outside in all the elements and can still do 25 mph down the cartpath. We havent used it since the middle of the summer around july or june. I was trying to rush a yuka plant out to this area on the second hole and we got called to do something else. I never got a chance to plant it, but I went out and watered it every day in the cart just to make sure it wouldnt die. It ended up wilting and dieing.. or so I thought. I went over to it today and saw this 4 new yuka plants growing, and the one that we were going to plant is still holding on. It lost some leaves but its still alive. Cool story right?
