I just recently purchased a Scag 48" walk behind. Have a chance to purchase a set of Jungle Wheels at reduced price. I have never owned a sulke. Just wanted to know what brands/types of sulkes will work best with my mower and maybe which ones not to buy. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There ok. All these wheels keep you from walking. At first a driver will try to work a mower like a garden tractor then get back to zero turns in a day or two.<br>They work good. there cheap on E-bay.

I have a set of jungle wheels on the back of my bobcat, and don't have any complaints(:<br>One reason I can say I like them is that the tire tracks follow the ones left by my machine.

I have a single wheel velke and i have no problems at all. Rides fine and can back up fast,and it doesn't wear me out. As for the jungle wheels, ive looked them over but my regular truf grabber tread tires work great for me.<p>----------<br>Mark's Mowing Service<br>

I say go for it. I've been riding the Jungle wheels for 9 years and love'em. You won't find a sulky that last longer or provides a two year weld-warranty. The Jungle Wheels is the only sulky that allows you to adjust your distance from the mower, with an adjustable arm.
