Swivel 3-wheel push carts reliable?


Recommended Posts

I’m looking to get a push cart (birthday coming up next month) and was wondering if swivel wheel carts have issues. I’ve used my friends clickgear 4.0 and it’s great and I’ve hear they are really reliable but they are impossible to find right now. Saw the clicgear swivel model at my local golf shop and was wondering if people have issues with it tracking or locking? The guy said the front wheel can sometimes not roll and just plow and can cause it to crash. Has anyone had any of these issues with it or similar models from other brands like caddytek?

I have two caddyteks from Costco, one with the swiveling front wheel and the other without.  Both are excellent.  I prefer the one without the swiveling front wheel because the front wheel is larger on that one but would happily use either. 

Do you ever have issues with the swivel wheel plowing or alignment/tracking issues when it’s locked straight?

The front wheel on both models, whether fixed or swiveling, is fully adjustable. They provide an Allen wrench if you need to make slight tweaks either way. So no, no issues with tracking and if there are, it’s just a simple adjustment to correct.

 

If I were buying a new cart today, I would get the Caddytek with the fixed front wheel. I believe they sell it now at TGW under the TGW house name.

Why do you prefer the fixed wheel to the swivel? I was actually just at tgw testing some out this evening. There are two fixed front models. One has connecting points on each side of the wheel and the other (seemed way flimsier) rotated under the center beam for when you are storing it.

I believe the one that has connecting points on either side of the wheel is a lower end model.  I prefer the one which connects on one side of the wheel and then you need to flip it 180 degrees for storage.  It’s solid. I’ve put over 500 rounds on mine.  I prefer the fixed front wheel because it’s bigger than the swiveling front wheel and tends to handle bumps better.  With the swiveling front wheel, I leave it locked 99% of the time. I don’t find it that difficult to press down on the handlebar to lift the front wheel to make a direction change.

The rotating front wheel i tested at their store that you said you liked was really flimsy where it attached. Is that something you can tighten up or is that just a bad model? Also I really appreciate all of your feedback. Thanks
