Sun Mountain simplifies MicroCart operation

Sun Mountain continues to improve its products in important, if incremental, ways, as it has done again with its MicroCart push cart.

Already an attractive accoutrement for walkers, given its weight (13 pounds) and storage size (52 cubic inches), the MicroCart now comes with what Sun Mountain calls its E-Z Latch (shown here), which simplifies handle height adjustment. The change was in response to consumer recommendations. Originally, the MicroCart handle allowed for two height adjustments and was replaced by a threaded system that permitted more variation, but was somewhat troublesome to manipulate.

The MicroCart remains exceptionally easy to fold and store in a trunk, even with four wheels. It has an MSRP of $219.
