Push Cart Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a new push cart. I'm using the Sun Mountain V1 speed cart and let's say it's lived down to its bottom of the rankings spot in the 2015 Most Wanted Push Carts. Does anyone have a push cart they think highly of? That's durable and doesn't take up too much space folded up in the car? And also works well in uneven terrain and sandy/dirt areas?

 

Thanks!

Sounds like you already found the Most Wanted testing, that's a great place to start.

 

I'd also read through the Big Max Autofold forum member reviews.  One of the guys was using your same cart before he got the Big Max for review.

Personally I have a Clickgear and it works fine.  I only walk one round a year (before they let carts out) so it's only been used a handful of times.  I have no complaints about it though.

I have a Clicgear 3.0 and my daughter has a 3.5.  I can't say enough good things about mine.  After suffering through a portion of a season with another brand that ultimately collapsed on the 16th hole of my home course, I bought the Clicgear in 2011 and haven't looked back.  

 

I walk 18 holes approximately 3 times per week from March through early November.

Been using the Big Maxx Blade for the past two seasons - awesome cart, folds up flat for easy storage, VERY easy to fold up and comes with a carrying bag so you don't get grass and crap in your trunk.  

 

Can bet had a relative bargain these days, too...

I was lucky enough to be chosen to review the Big Max Auto Fold and it is badass, especially coming from an older Sun Mountain V1. In our review thread, there's some great insight from someone that's used other Big Max carts too.

If you're a regular walker, definitely worth investing a quality new one. With the PGA Show coming up, there may be some previous models getting closed out for great prices, or something new worth waiting for. Great time to be in the market.

Thanks for the suggestions. The Big Max is intriguing. Of course, a Clicgear with a seat is fine option too. Will research!

Another vote for the Big Max.  I have a smaller run and it fits in very easily.  It's easy to fold/unfold and seems to float on the course.  A very solid pushcart that does everything I wanted in one very well.

Love my seat. When it gets slow nothing better to sit & lean back against the bag. They Did put a lot of thought into it along with accessories foot brush is very handy. Loops for towels, storage and umbrella loop to store, beverage holder and cooler..the list goes on. Have never heard of complaints with it from anyone

I gave sold Bag Boy for about 15 years. Still the best you can buy. Every part us available for replacement and they last forever. The Quad has been our biggest seller for years. Folds down flat and is very light.

There's also one sold at Costco that's similar to the Clicgear that looks good too. A young couple at my course use them and they commented that they liked them. And by the way... you don't have to be a member of Costco to order one.

The Bag Boy Quad XL is intriguing.  I have the Sun Mountain MicroCart and while it's OK, I do have a few issues with it.  However, I have to have a cart that folds up so that I can get TWO of them and TWO cart bags in my trunk.  The SM does that.  If the BB Quad XL folds up to a similar size then I might consider a change.  The Clicgear and I think the Big Max would take up too much space, even by folding flat.

Space isn't a factor personally.  I should have added that with my previous post above.  

 

My club has dedicated storage in the cart barn for push carts.

The downside to the Costco cart is that the brake is operated using your foot. Within one round you will wish you paid the extra and had a hand operated brake.

I've used more than my share of carts over the years and the one currently in the garage in the Clicgear 3.5+

Durable, folds small, great accessories, and you can catch them at a discount if you look for the % off coupons at dicks and such. They even have a parts shop online if you should need a replacement/repair.

 

Hoping to see a 4.0 model in 2017.

I have had both.  I agree that there is NO WAY I would ever get a push cart with a brake operated by my foot!  That is a deal breaker.
