A Deep Dive Into the 4 Wheel Golf Push Cart and Its Features

Traditionally, golf push carts have had three wheels. As advances in technology and frame designs came about, many manufacturers began offering four-wheeled push carts. These push carts are now some of the most popular on the market and appeal to buyers for many reasons. Here are some of the top push cart models that have four wheels and how they can benefit you.

Advantages

The advantages of owning a four-wheeled push cart significantly outweigh the disadvantages. The main difference is stability. Sometimes models with three wheels are more likely to tip over, especially due to a golf bag that’s too heavy or not strapped in correctly. A four-wheel push cart distributes the weight evenly, so tipping over isn’t a problem.

If you play golf courses that have a lot of terrain change, a four-wheel push cart is going to be the best choice for you due to how well these models adapt to hilly conditions.

Having a four-wheel base also allows the cart to be more compact. This can mean better maneuvering around tight spots on the golf course as well as a more compact cart when collapsed. If you have a smaller car with less trunk space, a four-wheel model might be the better route for you.

Disadvantages

The only real disadvantage to purchasing a four-wheel push cart is that you will probably spend a little more money than you would on a three-wheel model. Typically, around $50 more depending on the manufacturer.
