I just got an Exmark 48 turf tracer hp, With 17 Hp. Kawasaki engine now I'm looking to get a velke or sulky or pro-slide. Looking for input regarding 2 wheels compared to one, I know the difference regarding leaving ruts between 2 wheels and 1 looking for other input regarding ease of use, and any information on the pro-slide. :drinkup:

The single wheel is much easier to back up. For me it works better for the smaller lots.

I've got a pro-slide on my 36" Deere and love it. I have never used any of the wheeled ones though, so i don't have a whole lot to compare it to. But it leaves a real nice stripe and doesnt take up that much more room on the trailer. Just my .02.

I have 2 Exmarks, 48" 17hp and have Proslides on both. I have tried wheeled models but the slides are the best for me that I have found so far. Good luck.

The single wheel also doesn't fishtail at high speeds, and J.Thomas now sells them for 200 dollars.
