Looking for a golf push cart that offers good value for the money? Perhaps the Caddytek Caddylite EZ V8 review will interest you.
This certainly isn’t a budget golf push cart, but it isn’t too pricey either. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it has what you need, but we won’t know until we have an in-depth look at it.
With that being said, let’s get rolling with our CaddyTek Caddylite EZ fold V8 push cart review!

Features of CaddyTek Caddylite EZ Fold V8 Push Cart
Ready to know more about the features of the CaddyTek Caddylite EZ Fold V8? Let's go for it.
The Caddylite EZ V8 golf push cart has a durable-looking aluminum frame that weighs around 18.5 pounds. While the frame of this push cart probably won’t be as durable as the aircraft-grade aluminum frame of a push cart like the Clicgear Model 3.5+, it should be able to withstand a lot of beating.
What’s also remarkable about the frame of this push cart is its dimensions. The Caddylite EZ V8 appears to be wider and longer than many golf push carts out there, which should make it a little more stable on the court.
The Caddylite EZ V8 golf push cart boasts a foldable design. With a push of a button, you can fold this golf cart in 2 steps, a lot like you would with Clicgear Model 3.5+. With that being said, the EZ V8 appears to require less effort for folding down than the Model 3.5+ push cart.
When folded, the EZ V8 push cart is a bit bulky – 16.3 x 14.4 x 28.15 inches, which is on the bigger side of what you’d see in golf push carts nowadays. This push cart thus isn’t the best option if you are looking for a very compact golf cart, but it still is pretty compact.
We had to talk about the handle in our caddytek caddylite ez v8 review. Many push carts allow for height adjustment to accommodate both shorter and taller golfers. The EZ V8 has this, of course. The height adjustment is done by changing the angle of the handle, as in many other push carts – shorter people will want to put the handle lower, while taller golfers will want to have it higher.
Convenient bag holder
The Caddylite EZ V8 push cart has solid bag attachments. And interestingly, this golf cart allows for a bit easier cart bag mounting than some other golf carts out there.
At the bottom, you have your regular straps which you clip around the bottom of the bag to fix it in place. At the top, you have adjustable support arms designed to maintain the bag’s position. Usually, golf push carts have straps both at the top and bottom.
Arguably, bottom & top straps are better since they are going to hold cart bags more securely. With just one strap, mounting your bag may be a little quicker with this golf cart, but we aren’t sure whether the time benefit is worth the potential loss of stability that the lack of an upper strap implies.
If you haven’t had problems with your bag rolling around though, the mounting system in this push cart should be sufficient.
The EZ V8 golf push cart has 3 maintenance-free EVA wheels. Well, they are maintenance-free in the sense that you don’t need to inflate them since they are airless – you still need to clean them from time to time. And they obviously also won’t puncture.
CaddyTek has equipped this Caddylite EZ V8 golf push cart with a footbrake with on and off positions. With a push of the brake, you can switch between parking and moving modes. Such a brake allows you to place the cart in parking mode and not worry that it will roll away while you are playing.
With that being said, if you happen to be used to handbrakes, the footbrake in the EZ V8 may seem inconvenient to you at first. After getting used to it, you should have no problems.
Plenty of storage
Perhaps the strongest suit of the EZ V8 golf push cart is its storage capacity. This push cart comes with all the basic features you’d expect from a golf push cart – a console with storage space for balls, tees, scorecards, an umbrella/phone/GPS holder, and a mesh pocket beneath the console.
The key feature in this golf cart is the included cooler bag. Many push carts have cooler bags as an option, but with the EZ V8, you are getting it by default. If you like your drinks cool, then the included cooler bag should help you with maintaining the temperature of your drink during long golfing days.
And the final benefit we want to talk about on our CaddyTek Caddylite EZ fold V8 push cart review is its price.
This push cart certainly isn’t the cheapest out there, but nor is it too expensive. And when you consider what kind of goodies it comes with – namely, the cooler bag – the price of this push cart gets really attractive. If you are looking for the best value for your money, this push cart may be the best one out there.
- Very attractive price.
- Durable aluminum frame.
- 2-step folding mechanism.
- Cooler bag included.
- Maintenance-free tires.
- Parking footbrake.

- The footbrake may need some getting used to.

Are there any seats available for this golf push cart?
Yes, CaddyTek offers an optional seat accessory for the EZ V8 golf cart.
What’s the minimum bag height for the EZ V8 golf cart?
This golf cart works with at least 31.7-inch golf bags.
Can you replace the upper arms with straps?
Doesn’t seem like it. CaddyTek doesn’t appear to sell straps separately. The arms should keep your bag stable, but if you are worried about them, then you may want to look for another golf cart.
As our CaddyTek Caddylite EZ fold V8 push cart review has shown, the EZ V8 golf cart is indeed very solid for the price. It sure has a few questionable design features, but these do not make this golf cart a bad buy – it just means that it won’t be right for some people. For the money though, it’s an excellent golf cart.
