Tools needed to get golf cart out of the sand:
- Tire pressure gauge
- Traction mats
- Rope (14’ or more)
- Couple gallons of water
- Spare tire
- Tow straps
If you have limited space, try using a small shovel and start digging! A hanging bag will help cover the interior and prevent additional sand from going everywhere.
When your golf cart is stuck in the sand, you will have to first let go let go of the gas. The more your tires struggle, the more they will dig deeper into the sand. Assess the situation and avoid making things worse.
Traction mats may prove to be very helpful. Place the mat behind the tires, and begin pushing the cart over the mat.
- If this strategy does not work, it’s time to grab your shovel:
Use the shovel to remove sand in front of all the tires.
- Make a path parallel to the tire depth, and it should be a few feet long in front of each tire. Using this technique, there will be less sand under the wheel; therefore less resistance.
If the above is not working try wetting the sand to further reduce the resistance.
Tip: Don’t use the gallon jugs because they’re specifically reserved for the engines in case of overheating. Wetting the sand will make it easier to drive get your cart out of the sand.
