Posted on November 10 2023

The Bat Caddy X4R

Golfing is not just a sport; it's a passion that demands precision and focus. To enhance your golfing experience, remote-controlled golf caddies have become an indispensable companion on the course. Among the top contenders in this category are the Bat Caddy X4R and the Bat Caddy X8R, both offering a unique set of features to elevate your game.

This blog discusses the differences between these two golf caddies, helping golfers select the right remote-controlled caddy.

Bat Caddy X4R: The Game-Changer

The Bat Caddy X4R is a game-changer in the world of remote-controlled golf caddies. Its innovative design and advanced features make it a popular choice among golf enthusiasts. Here's a closer look at its key features.

High-Tech Aluminum Frame

The Bat Caddy X4R boasts an ultra-lightweight, high-tech aluminum frame, weighing in at only 24 lbs. This European-inspired design ensures durability and agility, making it easy to maneuver on the course.

Dual Direct Drive Motors

Equipped with two powerful and quiet 200W motors, the Bat Caddy X4R conquers challenging terrains with ease. It can handle hills with gradients of up to 30 degrees and reaches a top speed of 5.5 mph, ensuring a smooth and efficient round.

User-Friendly Remote Control

The Bat Caddy X4R comes with a wide range FCC-authorized remote control system, allowing you to manage your caddy up to 80-100 yards away. The remote control features directional controls, a power and battery charge indicator, and even a USB port for added convenience.

Electronic Brake System

Safety is essential on the golf course, and the X4R offers an electronic brake system. You can slow down or stop the caddy both remotely and manually, and it provides automatic resistance when moving downhill.

Efficient Battery

With the entry level 12V36Ah Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery, the Bat Caddy X4R ensures you have enough power to complete 18+ holes on a single charge. For an environmentally friendly option, it also offers Standard and Advanced Lithium Batteries with an impressive 45-54-hole range.

Anti-Tip Wheel

A standard rear stabilizer wheel prevents tipping on hilly courses, while an upgrade option, the ‘Mountain Slayer’ Deluxe anti-tip wheel, adds even more stability. Both models have Anti-Tip Wheels as a standard feature, but there is a difference. The Bat Caddy X4R's Anti-Tip Wheel is the standard single wheel. The Mountain Slayer, which provides the ultimate stability and performance, is the double anti-tip wheel, which is standard for the Bat Caddy X8R.

Adjustable Handle Design

The Bat Caddy X4R features an adjustable handle height, ranging from 33-45 inches, catering to various body types and preferences.

Compact One-Piece Fold Design

The caddy collapses into one piece, making it incredibly compact and easy to fit in any vehicle trunk, simplifying transportation to and from the course.

Bat Caddy X8R: Taking Golfing to the Next Level

The Bat Caddy X8R is a top-of-the-line remote-controlled caddy that pushes the boundaries of innovation. It shares many features with the Bat Caddy X4R but offers some unique advantages.

Lightweight Aerospace Aluminum Frame

Weighing in at just 22 lbs., the Bat Caddy X8R features a lightweight aerospace aluminum frame for unparalleled durability.

Dual Direct Drive Motors

Like the Bat Caddy X4R, the Bat Caddy X8R comes equipped with powerful 200W motors for smooth and efficient performance.

Multi-Function FCC Certified Remote Control

The Bat Caddy X8R's remote control offers directional controls, effective brake/stop functions, a distance timer (10, 20, 30 yards), and a manual rheostat handle control. It also includes a USB port for added convenience.

Electronic Automatic Downhill Brake System

The Bat Caddy X8R features an automatic downhill brake system, ensuring safe and controlled descents.

Off-Power Freewheeling Mode

In the unlikely event of a battery drain, the Bat Caddy X8R can be pushed just like a manual push cart, eliminating the fear of being stuck on the course.

Deluxe Twin Anti-Tip Wheel

The Bat Caddy X8R comes with a newly designed rear stabilizer twin wheel that offers exceptional backward stability, even on hilly courses. If you play very hilly/steep golf courses, the "Mountain Slayer" is the perfect upgrade due to the added stability and superior anti-tip performance it offers, and is especially recommended for customers with Lithium batteries due to the decreased weight on the base of the Caddy
