    I searched for "push cart" but only found 6+ year old threads.
    I think I'm in the market for a push cart. Any recommendations?
    3 or 4 wheel?
    How do you steer a 4 wheeler?

    Yep, it pulls to the left and nothing I've tried has worked. I'll never buy another 4 wheeler.

    Here in Oregon we've got a company called ClicGear but with golf being one of the few sports available, carts are usually sold out and on back-order. Good luck finding anything new.

    I don't understand the need for 4 wheels. I got my 3-wheeler on craigslist for $40. It does the job but I have a stand-up bag and it doesn't really work well with a cart.

    My wife and I have SunMountain 4-wheel micro carts, that I got for a steal of a deal, scooping up the last two in the store! For me the deal was just too good, I didn’t even really put much thought into how many wheels the carts had (she also liked the colour of hers...) I have never had any steering issues with it, when I think about it. If I ever do come to a tight turn, or require some extra maneuverability, I’m usually pushing down on the handle so the cart is on the back two wheels anyway. I did the same thing with my 3-wheel cart before this one.

    I bought a Clic Gear 3.5+ 3 years ago, started really using it a lot last summer. I love it, swear by it. I’ve gotten to a point I prefer walking but to hell with carrying. It’s very maneuverable and rolls really nicely, steering is a breeze.

    I’ve heard some people think that it makes walking harder having to lush the cart up hills, I don’t find that to be the case. I can’t imagine it’s harder than lugging a bag over hills. If storage is your thing, it has a compartment that fits my phone, few balls etc. it has a ton of add ons you can buy-a stool, cooler bag all sorts of extra shit I don’t bother with. Well worth the $250 or whatever I paid for it. Problem is, like Tea said, good luck finding one now.

    I have a 4 wheel cart as well.

    It has a spot for two bags, two people, 4 drinks, a cooler in the basket and does like...8mph with an electric motor, it's pretty sweet.

    We do a lot of sod work within a seniors housing community. It’s a very fancy place, has all amenities and everyone is super nice! I think you need to be 60+ to get in??? Everyone there has their own cart. Some are plain others done up to the nines!! I know where I’m retiring!!

    My course in VA is so damn hilly, it's easier to carry a light bag than pushing my 3 wheel push cart up those hills.

    thanks to Drew Carey I know that Cleveland Rocks, but not sure if that’s where I’ll be retiring... unless I rename my island.
