Building on the outstanding success of the R1 PUSH we are very proud to present the Stewart Golf R1-S PUSH trolley that is built by hand in Gloucestershire.
Now complete with 10 different colour variations, the R1-S PUSH has been branded ‘The best push trolley in the world’. Based on a novel application of the tried and tested rack & pinion system. Rack & pinion is most well known for use in car steering systems to turn the circular movement of turning a steering wheel, into the linear movement of the steering rack.
Specially designed self adjusting bag jaws will accommodate any style of stand, cart or tour bag, and an innovative new silicone bag strap both adjusts to bag size and grips at the same time.
Watch Golf Monthly's Digital Editor explain how the rack and pinion system works on the R1-S Push trolley:
• 10 different colour variations
• Patented Rack & Pinion driven folding mechanism.
• Weight: 8.1kg.
• Extensive standard features including umbrella holder, ball holder, scorecard holder, ball marker, 4 accessory points, soft touch handle, bottle holder.
• Adjustable and padded bag jaws that will accept virtually any tour, cart or even stand bag.
• 3 quick release wheels.
• 2 Year Warranty
• Hand built in Great Britain.
R1-S Push Enhancements
How it works
The R1-S PUSH is based on a novel application of the tried and tested rack & pinion system. Rack & pinion is most well known for use in car steering systems to turn the circular movement of turning a steering wheel, into the linear movement of the steering rack.
The R1-S PUSH actually has 4 racks and 4 pinions that all work simultaneously. When folding the R1-S PUSH, it works as follows:
1. The main support is folded forwards, pivoting at its base.
2. At the base of the main support there is a large gear, or pinion. As this turns, it engages with the top side of the rear rack and moves it backwards in the horizontal tube.
3. The two lower sides on the rear rack connect to the front aero leg which has a pinion on. As the rack moves backwards linearly, the gear rotates and the leg closes until parallel with the horizontal tube.
4. The rear rack is connected to the front rack, so they both move backwards at the same time.
5. A further pinion mounted on top of the front rack is connected to the front wheel, so as the rack moves backwards the wheel folds under the horizontal tube.
6. The handle can be folded and adjusted by loosening the knob, and re-tightening when positioned.
Why is this better?
Any external sliding mechanism is subject to dust & dirt from the golf course. If not kept clean, this can lead the mechanism to become stiff and possibly even jam. The presence of abrasive dust or grit in a sliding mechanism can also cause damage to the surface finish.
The patented rack & pinion mechanism is all housed inside the tube, away from dust & dirt. Additionally, the oversized design of the gears can work even with debris present.
As well as the functional benefits described above, the rack & pinion system means that the aesthetic is impeccably clean. With the usual sliders missing, the key lines of the R1-S Push are allowed to really sing.
