What type of sulky for me?

I have a 2000 32 inch toro proline and I'm considering a sulky. I have about 5 or 6 accounts to mow
Ranging from 1/8-1/4 acres. One is on a large hill. I'm wondering what kind of sulky to get , one or two wheel or if I need one at all. Also, what brands can you recommend I'll probably be looking at eBay. Since I'm 15 and don't have transportation, I'll be driving my mower to neighborhood accounts. What can you recommend for me? Thanks!

Velkey 2 wheel when you bak up it will track backwards its a time saver about 300$ but its so worth it .

1/8 to 1/4 acre properties? Walk em bro.

Edit- I see you will be driving the mower place to place. That said I have a full season on a bullrider and couldn't ask any more or less from it. I think the other similar ones on e-bay would do the trick as well.

On a 32 he will have clearance issues with a 2 wheel and turning.

Yeah, you will get an ugly stripe right up the middle of your pass, if that matters to you.

I would go with a proslide. they are alot more comfortable on your knees and stuff id you have a rough yard to mow. Plus, you dont have to deal with hidden holes that catch your sulky wheels.
