The three-wheeled PX3 model from Sun Mountain is the closest thing to “basic” you’ll find in the Sun Mountain push cart family.

The PX3 has everything you need for a successful push along the golf course. It folds down in two simple steps and once collapsed, fits easily into any trunk. A convenience accessory console is designed to hold your cell phone, scorecard, extra golf balls, and tees. There is also a mesh basket and velour-lined valuables pouch for range finders and additional items such as headcovers. Available in seven colors and works with cart or stand bags.

The PX4 has many of the same features as its wildly popular predecessor, the Pathfinder 4, but with some great upgrades. The PX4 folds and unfolds in two easy steps and has ample built-in storage.

The new single-piece handle makes pushing your bag a breeze, you can even use one hand. An updated console tray has dual-umbrella attachments. The four-wheel design allows for added stability and makes hilly terrain a walk in the park. Available in seven color options.

Speed Cart GX

In 1999, Sun Mountain debuted the Speed Cart and instantly it became one of the most revolutionary designs in golf. Today, the Speed Cart remains one of the staples in golf push carts for its durability and performance on the golf course.

As with all Sun Mountain models, the E-Z Latch system allows the Speed Cart GX to fold in two steps. Both the upper and lower bag brackets have strong bungee cords so your bag won’t move.

An updated console tray includes a cell phone holder, padded valuables tray, scorecard holder, and a redesigned mesh tray. This cart is for serious movers on the course. Available in six colors.

The Speed Cart V1R offers all of the same great features as the GX model listed above, but with some slight additions.

Mainly, the V1R model is offered in ten outrageously cool dual-color combinations. The hardest part will be figuring out which combo to choose. In addition, the V1R offers six-spoke wheels which are very sporty looking.
