2017 Manual Golf Trolleys
Manual golf trolleys are perfect for players who like using large cart or tour bags on the greens. Manual trolleys are available in a various styles, with plenty of useful add-ons for accessories. At American Golf, we’ll help you find out which model is right for you.
Before choosing a manual trolley, players should select their ideal wheel size, find the most comfortable handles and check how well the trolley manoeuvres. Also, does it fold down when not in use? And, how much does the golf trolley weigh? This buying guide will help players gain a little more knowledge about which golf trolley to consider.
Deciding on collapsible vs non-collapsible golf trolleys
Look for golf trolley’s that are collapsible, as they can be safely tucked away ready for next time, and this is a feature every player should look out for. Some trolleys are rather large, which means they will take up more space at home if the option to collapse them isn’t available.
Collapsed isn’t the most important aspect, of course, but it will make a positive difference when it comes creating more space and easy storage. The BIG MAX Autofold Flat Fold 3-Wheel Push Trolley is a great foldable golf trolley used by many players and well worth considering.
Choosing wheel size
Pick a golf trolley that either has wheels which power over different levels of terrain, or choose a trolley that’s wheels can be switched to better contest challenging turf conditions.
Larger wheel radius will help smooth out the humps and lumps of the course, and allow for an easier trek. However, small wheels also work well in most turf conditions, and will be extra useful when snaking along thin trails or over hills.
Larger golf wheels tend to make for less work and smoother driving, but nobody should rule out smaller wheels without giving them a try first.
A selection of very good golf trolley wheels which are available now include the Motocaddy Golf Hedgehog Winter Wheels, PowaKaddy Winter Wheels, Masters Golf Winter Hoppa Wheels, Masters Golf Hoppa Wheel Covers and BIG MAX Hedgehog Wheels.
Push trolleys are lightweight in construction, making them incredibly easy to lift in and out of a car. Being this light means they can also be stored with relative ease, either on a high shelf or under the bed.
Similar to a push trolley, pull trolleys are incredibly lightweight and can be lifted with little effort. They are easy to traverse the golf course with and will not weigh players down when going uphill, nor do they need forcing forward when the course takes a sudden descent.
Check the Brakes
Different brake mechanics can be found in a number of golf trolleys, and this should be something that is checked before choosing a model. Basic brakes work well at keeping trolleys sentry on hillsides, although there’s no guarantee it will perform this way on very steep declines. Brakes need to be strong in order to hold every golf club and golf bag when going up or down hills They need to be strong enough to keep you in control of the slope. Many carts only have manual breaks at the wheels, while others have a simple break mechanism near the handle, but this is only to keep the cart stationary and cannot help slow it down should it begin to move.
