This will be our second season using them. Yes I order directly from Kage Innovation. We use their pushers for snow, which btw are awesome too

$500 isn't too much.

whats a velke X2 nowadays? $350?

it has several upgrades like the quick disconnect, lifetime bearings, the shock system (which I think is over emphasized…that's fixing something that wasn't broke) and the fact you don't get grease all over yourself.

The velke is a grease bomb.

Proslide all the way. I've had them for 15+ years. No desire to try another type of velke. Yes, they ride as smoothly as the videos show. You just can't ride over any hard pavement.

That is crazy.IMO....... would never work for what we do but it sounds like it's working out great for you, that's all that matters

The best one is the one you don't buy. They all suck.

Man up and walk!

Lol. You must not have many lawns or have never used one. It's all about efficiency.
