I also have the Jungle Wheels and I love them. Never used a single wheel, but from what I've heard, they are harder to get your balance on.

We have been using one wheel velke...the reason for is being whn you need turn go across hills and have to make a turn and get off the velke its alot easier in a one wheel version..just think how do you walk beside a 2 wheel velke ?? A one wheel velke is easy to walk beside while you turn on a difficult section. I also invested money in each velke we have and got rid of the stock wheel and got a solid rubber wheel so that it will never punchure ever again.

depending on what mower you buy. If you get a Toro get the Tru-Trac from them. I don't own one but use one often from a family memeber who owns another LCO. He loves them. I like how they float on both sides. takes some gettin used to though.

I"ve had both. The one wheel seems to be hard on the ankles.

With the two wheel style, even if one tire goes flat you can finish the day. Just stand closer to the one good tire.

You can even adjust your stance better for those long cuts.

Go with the double wheeled unit. You will be happy.

Ive been useing the one wheel velke now for 11yrs there my favorite, its like skiing, ive heard alot of yall say they hurt your ankels but its never been a problem for me. I jog alot and weight-lift regulary so it all depends if your in shape. But i can go deeper into ditches with the one wheel. Marks Mowing Service.........ps I don't have any problems with the three wheel track.

I have had both in the past. Just make sure it is hinged so that you are not directly conected to the mower. From that I mean when you turn the velke should turn as well. The picture above seems to be able to pivot. That's what you want on hills. Without a hinge or pivot point your weight tends to pull the mower sideways on any slope.

I have both styles. They each have their pros and cons, but I just recently bought a set of Jungle Wheels and I really like them. They are adjustable in the length so you get a comfortable reach to the mower handles. Also the design forces the front end of the walk behind down, which is nice for bumpy terrain.

Two wheel all the way. I go for looks when your done mowing a yard. Why have an extra track when you dont need one. The two wheel will look alot sharper in the end. I've had both and will never own a single again.

I own a set of Jungle Wheels, and love them. My opinion. . . best on the market. I have used the single wheel in the past, and the two wheel design is far better.
