Cushman Truckster Update

As I have stated in the past, part of what we do in the winter is repair and refurbish equipment.  With the cost of golf course equipment regularly exceeding that of a luxury car, making our equipment last as long as possible is very crucial.  I feel that you as members should know what the equipment costs and what we do to protect that investment.

Our third Cushman truckster is now finished (we are currently working on a 4th one).  All have received engine and transmission servicing, new cables and hoses, new HEAVY DUTY dump beds, seats, bushings, custom front bumpers, in addition to new paint jobs.  As I have stated in the past, a new Cushman truckster costs around $20,000.  The cost to refurbish this equipment was about $4000 each, including labor.  Because of this project, I am happy to report that we have been able to save the club approximately $70,000 in new equipment costs!

So long as parts remain available, these refurbished vehicles will continue to serve the club for many more years.
