Sulky question

I am going to buy a sulky and need some advice. what is better, a single wheel, double wheel or a proslide. I have several large properties some are pretty rough terrain (holes, bumps etc), some kind of hilly, the rest are regular size lots. I have two walk behinds a exmark 48" belt drive and a walker walk behind 48" hydro. Please help I need to get a sulky VERY soon.

I use a single wheel on my 48 inch exmark wb I do notice there is a line in the middle of your stripe once the grass gets dry also when mowing when wet the single wheel will sink in the mud as for the rough stuff [ potholes etc. ] I found if I air down the tire it rides a lot better also just let your knee's be the shock's if I had it to do all over again I would get a duel wheel sulky so it rides in the tire tracks

i had a viking hydro and i only used a 2 wheel caster style to make the mower a true zero turn. This is the only sulky i would consider if your looking to get productivity. one wheels leave a stripe down the center which is not attractive, and two wheel fixed, well is just not as agile when it comes to your turns. take a look at this website. i have a brand new one for sale at 299.00 with custom brackets for vikings and metro for 35.00. retail is 369.00 for the sulky and 79.00 for the bracket. let me know if your interested @
