WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A WORKER BREAKING THE VELKE ON A BOBCAT 48".WHAT SHOULD I DO.????
If you are using a one wheel velky, upgrade to a two wheel one. Try a Bull Rider. Their built solid as a rock.

Make him walk for a while so he can burn so of that fat then when you give him a velke agian you won't have that problem.
The guy down the street from me weighs about 280 and uses a single wheel velkie. He can't figue out why his tires keep going flat.

Little green is right make him walk for a while who should make you keep paying for new velkes so someone can make you pay $250.00 dollars when he breaks it let him walk for a while.He will probably be a little faster if he burns some of that off and he will be happy you made him do that after he burns that off.:)

How did he break it? I've had a single wheel velke on my machine for years now. The only problem I had with it was the plate got ripped apart from constant stopping and starting. I don't see how you can break one otherwise? And the plate is pretty easily replaced.

Give him a Pro-Slide and have him follow the asphalt truck!;)

If he is a good worker, I would say better get him whatever it takes to make him stay with you. It's harder to find a good worker than a new Bullrider.

What brand of velke are we talking about and how much does this worker really weigh?

Don't take the velkie away....he is heavy and probably slower than the average guy without it. Your production will go down.
Take a look at where he breaks them and have a welding shop reinforce a new one or build him a custom one made for the extra weight.
Don't make him walk...it will be humiliating to him. Think about it you are too fat, you broke the equipment and now you are being punished by walking.
Take care of your employees because they are the core of your business.
Just my thoughts.

You need to talk to this fellow, tell him your delima. You MUST be honest with him. Tell him that he keeps breaking the velkes, and that you cant afford to keep replacing them, and just talk to him. More than likely, he will be glad to work with you about this problem. Then go get a velke custom made for this one guy, with all stress points reinforced.
