Discover What's New with PowerBug: A Closer Look New NX

PowerBug is a British-based company that specializes in designing and manufacturing motorized golf trolleys. Founded in 2003, the company emerged with a vision to enhance the golfing experience by offering innovative trolleys for golfers. Over the years, PowerBug has grown into a respected brand within the golfing community, known for its commitment to quality and technology.


PowerBug has become a go-to-choice for many golfers seeking a reliable, efficient, and affordable motorized golf trolley. Their collection of trolleys range from as low as $599 CAD for basic models, up to $1,299 CAD for the newest models offering premium features like DHC (Down Hill Control).


The Growth of PowerBug

In the early stages, PowerBug focused on introducing motorized trolleys that provided convenience and ease of use at an appealing price point. Their commitment to delivering reliable products that catered to golfers' needs quickly gained attention within the golfing community. As a result, the brand began to grow its customer base and reputation, leading to increased demand for their products throughout North America.


The early models of motorized trolleys were simple and effective, providing golfers with a means to transport their golf gear effortlessly. As technology advanced, PowerBug integrated features such as DHC, variable speed settings, improved battery life, and ergonomic designs to enhance the overall experience.


The New PowerBug NX and NX DHC

PowerBug continues to stand at the forefront of new golf tech with its latest innovation, the NX electric trolley. The PowerBug NX and PowerBug NX DHC are two prominent models in PowerBug’s line of products, offering a blend of convenience, performance, and cutting-edge features. While both models share common features and qualities, they also have distinct differences that cater to certain golfer preferences and needs. The new NX and NX DHC features a sleek design that pays homage to the core expectations from any PowerBug machine.


So, what is the difference? The primary difference between the PowerBug NX and PowerBug NX DHC is the inclusion of the Down Hill Control (DHC) technology in the NX DHC model. Also included in the electric electronic parking brake that prevents the trolley from rolling away while stationary. The NX DHC's features provide added safety and control during downhill walks, making it an excellent choice for golfers who play on courses with significant elevation changes. In contrast, the PowerBug NX model offers the essential features of a motorized golf trolley without the specialized downhill control feature.
