Motocaddy Z1 vs P1 vs Cube – What’s The Best Push Cart

An entry level push cart may be exactly what the doctor ordered if you are just getting into golf or simply feel you don’t need a motorized trolley. They are light, compact and you can score a high quality one for a very reasonable price.

But you can’t simply haul off and buy the first shiny push cart that catches your eye. Even though there are some great push carts out there that offer tremendous value, you sill have to have a discerning eye.

And in order to help you out with your next golf push cart purchase, we have put together a review of 3 of the most popular and promising entry level push carts from famed British cart manufacturer, Motocaddy.


The Motocaddy Carts

The push carts we are going to be taking a look at today include the Motocaddy Z1, the Motocaddy P1 and the Motocaddy Cube. While Motocaddy has become known for their technologically advanced motorized push trolleys, the same basic design goes into their manual push carts.

The fundamentals of a sturdy, reliable and easy to use push cart are all alive and well in these three manual models. But which one is the best of the three? Which one will most benefit the everyday golfer? Let’s begin by taking a close look at each one.


The Motocaddy P1


The Motocaddy P1 is the lightweight cousin of the Motocaddy Cube that we will also be taking a look at shortly. The first thing that strikes you when you take a look at this push cart is the size of the wheels.

The wheels are of a wide diameter, airless and look incredibly durable. The rear left wheel features a foot brake that you can use to lock the entire cart into place when you’re not on the move. And the whole thing folds up and down in one easy motion.

Some of the perks you get with this push cart include an umbrella slot, an accessory compartment located just under the handle, drink holder, scorecard holder and adjustable height handle.


  • Wheels are smooth
  • Very affordable
  • Goes over rough terrain easily
  • Locking system holds large bags in place securely
  • Sturdy frame
  • Comfortable foam handle



  • Front wheel is locked in place
  • Bottom bag saddle is too small
  • Minimal storage
  • Tips backwards going up slopes

The Motocaddy Z1


The Z1 model is the lightest of all three push carts we will be taking a look at in this review. It comes in at just a smidge over 19 pounds so it isn’t too taxing on your body when you load/unload it from your car or when you’re pushing it along the course.

Like the P1, the Z1 also has a foot brake mechanism and it sports a three-wheel design. Unlike the P1, the Z1 is designed to tilt back a bit more which makes it more reliable on inclined terrain. It handles most large bags well with an Easilock securing system.

Some of the bonus features you get with the Z1 model include three different handle heights, ball and tee holder, an accessory compartment, scorecard holder, drink holder and umbrella holder.


  • Adjustable bag supports
  • Airless tires
  • Extremely lightweight
  • 2 step fold down design
  • Ergonomic handle
  • Detachable wheels



  • Thin frame
  • Fold down size is relatively large
  • Foot brake feels flimsy
  • Tilts sideways

The Motocaddy Cube

The Motocaddy Cube gives you the best overall bag support and stability of the three. It folds down compactly to dimensions of about 21” x 13” x 17”. It’s a bit heavier than the other 2 models but not by much and the extra weight adds to the stability.

The cart folds down with a fairly simple two step motion and like the other models, there is a foot activated wheel brake that locks it in place. The upper bag lock is adjustable and does a good job of securing large and small bags.

It comes pretty much ready out of the box too – all you have to do is attach the two rear wheels.


  • Drink holder
  • Umbrella holder
  • Scorecard holder
  • Doesn’t tip easily
  • Sturdy frame
  • Adjustable handle



  • A bit pricey
  • Different colors are more expensive
  • Heavier
  • Pulls slightly to the right

Price Comparison

  • Motocaddy P1 – $129

  • Motocaddy Z1 – $110

  • Motocaddy Cube – $265


Performance Comparison

We liked the fact that the Motocaddy Cube was a lot more stable overall than the other two models. It felt sturdier and didn’t feel like it was going to tip over at any point on the course. But it was a bit heavier.

The Z1 was easiest to load in and out of the car but the frame felt a bit flimsy and it felt like it might tip to the side at some points.

The P1 was more of an even blend between the other two and if it were designed to lean back just a bit more, it would be the clear-cut best choice between all three. In terms of overall performance though, the Cube narrowly beats out the other two models.


Durability and Value Comparison

This is a tough one because the Cube feels like it will definitely last the longest and take the burliest beatings. But at well over $100 more than the other two, the price tag is hardly justified. The P1 seems to be the best overall in terms of strictly value.


Last Say

So which is the best overall? We have to give this one to the P1. While not the sturdiest it was more stable than the Z1 and a lot more price justified than the Cube. Our only major gripe with it is the upright design but that can easily be negated as it’s only an issue on steep inclines.

While all three carts performed admirably in their own respects, the Motocaddy P1 is our choice for the best push cart so check it out.
