Stewart Golf R1 Push trolley key technology
The Stewart Golf R1 Push trolley features a unique folding system that removes any external mechanisms. This makes it 33 per cent smaller than the Stewart Z Series when folded and, as you can see below, this means it fits in your boot with plenty of room to spare. This unique design also keeps dirt and dust away from the mechanism and that should mean that it lasts as long, if not longer, than any other trolley. The Stewart Golf R1 Push is designed to hold any type of bag firmly in place, this is achieved thanks to a new strap system that works brilliantly at holding. A footbrake secures the trolley on hilly ground. While some will prefer a break on the handle, the Stewart designers tell us that a handle break becomes slacker quicker because of the extra wiring, which is why they stuck with a foot version.
Golf Monthly verdict
The Stewart Golf R1 Push is an excellent push trolley that features noticeable improvements compared to the previous Stewart model. The new folding mechanism should ensure that the trolley lasts for a long time, as there’s very little that can go wrong. The folding and unfolding mechanism is both quick and easy. The compact size when folded is particularly impressive when you consider the size of the unit when it is ready for play and the storage space available. A well thought out trolley that should be very high on your list if you want a high quality push design. The Stewart Golf Z3 was an impressive performer but the R1 Push takes push trolley design forward once again.
This is the best-looking push trolley on the market, and is packed with useful features. It is clearly built to last and is a great choice for those after a high quality model but not intersted in an electric trolley.
