Side mounted golf cart hauling

Hauling 4x8 feet plywood with a Club Car golf cart
In the past I've sometimes had 8 foot sheets of plywood cut in half to make for an easier haul back to our home.

Our new helper clued us into the side mount method. It only takes a minute to set up if you have the right bungee cords and scrap wood.

Y'all need to give that "new helper" a name and adopt him!

Cookie --- We asked him if he minded us using his photo on the blog, but I keep forgetting to ask if he minds us using his name! Thus the vagueness.... :-)

Have you thought about installing some sort of bin? At one of the greenhouses I worked at, there was a 4' long plywood "tailgate" on the back of our golf carts to carry extra flats.

Edward --- You probably can't see it well in the photo, but Mark made a pickup bed for our golf cart a couple of years ago. It works quite well, but isn't quite big enough for full sheets of plywood, thus the side mount hack. I could see making the side mount more permanent, though.
