January 26, 2006

Orlando, FL - January 26, 2006 - E-Z-GO introduced a new Refreshment Vehicle and new Driving Range Picker Vehicle at the 2006 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. Using the popular E-Z-GO ST 4x4 as a base, these vehicles offer increased power, productivity and hauling capacity.

The ST 4x4 Refresher features a custom built snack/beverage unit by 19th Hole Marketing. 19th Hole is a leader in the refreshment retail center industry. Refreshment Vehicles are a handy way to increase F&B revenue and member satisfaction. The introduction of the ST 4x4 Refresher expands the already strong Refreshment Vehicle line-up offered by E-Z-GO. Also available from E-Z-GO are the MPT Refresher, Haulster Refresher and a Refresher Insert. No other manufacturer offers golf course operators as many options for enhanced F&B operations at golf courses.

The ST 4x4 is also now available in a Ball Picker configuration. A custom designed ball picker cage and front or rear adaptors make the ST 4x4 ideal for the driving range. The larger engine and higher speed capability of the ST 4x4 make it more productive as a range picker than many other utility vehicles.

Initially targeted to the recreation and farm markets, the ST 4x4 has been widely accepted in golf course applications. The E-Z-GO ST 4x4 boasts an impressive 1,500 lb. vehicle load capacity. With an 18 hp, 614-cc, V-twin, air-cooled Honda engine the ST 4x4 can travel at a top speed of 25 mph.

The ST 4x4 also has a heavy-duty frame made of hot-dipped, galvanized channel and tubular steel for superior strength and corrosion protection. The large payload capacity and versatility make the ST 4x4 a welcome addition to any golf course's fleet.
