Straw bale load limit

finding out what the load limit is for straw bales on the golf cart

I discovered today that the golf cart can haul 10 bales of straw.

While going up the ford I noticed the LED indicator dimmed and the motor felt like it was struggling.

Maybe it could've handled another load with 10 if it had a full charge, but I decided to play it safe and reduce the amount of bales to 7 per trip.

We barely got them all in the barn before a storm started pouring down on us. My guess is this is the start of our winter raining season which might last till early summer.

Okay there's still room for a few more bales on the roof...
