Does anyone know why there is such a price gap between the two?

I am looking at the swivel sulkies...

The bull rider seems a lot mower expensive, but is it really work 300 more dollars?

I am thinking about possibly getting a Havener Swivel sulky and would really like some inputs or comments.

Thanks!

I was thinking of getting one off of ebay. Do you think they would take a 200 offer?

What was the "scratch and dint"? What was effected?

Also, did you get the 18" or the 15" arm?

You can request either arm from them at checkout. I have had an original Velke and would put these right in line with quality.

I had a one wheeled Havener that didn't last worth a darn. Total waste of $200.

Gosh they've gone way up in price, I paid as much for a new 1-wheeler not that long ago...
Now that same one is like $250, a Velke is even more and forget the 2-wheelers, some go as high as $400!
I mean if you can get one for $200, you ain't gonna find much cheaper, my opinion.

Other than maybe the Proslide, which it seems hasn't really caught on.

Look, here's one for $140 + shipping:

I know, that is a really good price.

I don't even own a walk behind right now, but I know I will have one sooner or later. I was thinking of getting a swivel sulky from them if I could do a best offer for like 200. Who knows though, I may just wait and get one later down the road, but I am just afraid I wont be able to find a better deal on these.

I bought mine from that guy you linked to on ebay. I bought the wrong size arm so I sent it back to him on my dime and he sent me the smaller one on his. I like mine. -Jason

209 is the best price you can get I tried everything below that value. For the price you can get two vrs. one bull rider, and use the other one as a back up.

trust me -you will need the back up when the bearings fail (even with daily greasing) and you cant get replacement parts
