I doubt any castoring sulky would work for you? but a 2 wheel trailering sulky would be best, maybe get the wheel areas beefed up a bit by a welder, there was a guy on here once that said he had to add in extra supports due to his weight, but cant remember his name. But even the 2 wheel sulkies are going to leave ruts with 350 on them. You may be able to find some wider wheels and tires for the sulky, this will definitely help.
