I've got a single wheel velke and really like it, helps make a neat set of stripes but a two wheel velke will work better when ground is soft and wet, won't rut up as bad JMO Marc

I looked around at all the sulky's out there and found the one that Lesco sells best for me. It is the type that follows the mower, not trailers or jack knives. It is a 2 wheel type and the only one my big feet and boots would fit on without anything hanging off the back edge. Easy to remove quickly as well. Look around and you will find what works for you. And you will love not walking as much!

What about a proslide? Always out of the way when you don't need it, and helps stripe. I'm planning on getting one if I can, if I end up buying a W/B.

Definately get a two wheel. One thing to consider is your mower's power. What size enging does it have. If you don't have enough power to do the extra pulling, it would be aggravating and slow. If you have enough power, you'd wonder why you didn't do it sooner. Good luck.

I also have a Toro 44" with the T bar system and put a set of Jungle Whells on it this spring. They work great and are really a time saver as well. I also looked into the proslide but they said the mower might not be big enough.

Hope this helps.
