  • What Is a Series wound motor? Shunt wound motor?

    These are the two types of electric motors used in all Club Car, Ezgo, Yamaha golf carts. A Series wound motor was once used by all golf cart manufacturers, however, as time went on new features were developed in the golf carts which demanded a different motor. It is then when the Shunt wound motor was introduced. This electric motor is used in current golf carts that feature a Dynamic Braking / Regenerative Braking system.

    Most golf carts manufactured this year come standard with a Shunt wound motor. While you can not interchange a Series wound motor with a Shunt wound motor, and vise versa, these motors can easily be identified by a long sensor wire that comes out the center of the Shunt wound motor.

    Tip: If purchasing a replacement or performance motor for your golf cart, take notice of which motor it has.
