I am upgrading my 48 volt ezgo to a 500 amp alltrax controller and I will also need diode and resistor. I see the diode but it doesn't have spade connections is this the correct diode for the application?

recently installed a 600a controller on my ezgo48txt cart. Do i need to change out the stock solenoid?
joe s on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My cart over heated and would start stuttering with the old stock one so I swapped to this and the problem was gone. I think it’s s good idea to change if your old one failed could put the cart full throttle.
Will this work on a 1998 club car DS with 400 amp Alltrax controller with mounting in stock location? Also would I need different diode/resistor, recommendations?

BEST ANSWER: Came with my upgrade kit fit just fine do not know about diode
My cart has a Curtis SW80B-156. Is this item (SW180) a replacement?
Rickey on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work. You may have to replace your coil connection terminals, but that will be simple to do.
The solenoid I’m replacing has a “+” terminal mark for the battery connection. Does this solenoid have that polarity wiring terminal?
Jim F on Oct 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Jim, I don’t remember and the cart is gone so I can’t check. I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful.

This work in Curtis 3000 pro plow ?
Joselito on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Joe, as long as it's a 48-volt system, this solenoid should work for you!
How many Amps can this handle? What is the continuous / peak range?
Scott W on Oct 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The SW180 is Continuous Current: 500 Amp
Break Current: 1400 Amp @ 48V
Electrical Life: 100,000 operations
Can be used with a 500-650Amp controller
Rated at 1,000 Peak Amps

Not for use for controller applications larger than 650A - as you run a risk of welding the contacts shut in the event of a failure. Would use a 3 Amp Diode with a 470 Ohm Resistor
will this work on a 2009 yamaha ydre 48v golf cart?

Do not use anywhere near the coast
This solenoid is heavy duty, however with the high voltage connection bar exposed this will be problematic in any type of corrosive coastal environment. Mine did not last a year and I keep my cart garaged.

Not saying this is a bad solenoid, just not suited for all environments

Good solid product. It didn't come with any instructions. I had to use Google to make sure I had it wired right.

This item was a perfect fit, It was larger than the original but after talking with the techs they assured me it was the right one. They also went over the wiring with me. Once hooked up she worked like a charm. Nice job guys!!
