    I've used several. I loathe them.

    I walked about 8 small yards a day with an Exmark Turf Tracer (60 inch). I've got a Wright for this season, though. No more walking.

    Oh so first you said we're supposed to man up and walk but now you're not walking. That makes sense.

    I'll give a serious answer because I tried them all. The Pro-slide/glide sucks. I mean it's terrible.

    If you must use a sulkie get one that has 1 wheel. That's my opinion.

    Wouldn't own either of them. The Velke x2 is great. Never used the Kage.

    No offense, but the one-line comments like "Brand X is GREAT", or "Brand Y is teh SUX!" are mostly useless.

    No need to go into an 500 word essay, but some brief explanations on why you feel one is good, or another is bad would actually be helpful to someone who is trying to decide where to spend his hard-earned money.

    So Velke is now owned by Wright manufacturing, that can't be the same thing I have on mine, and what's with the 2-wheelers?

    I tried...see post 9. I don't like the 1 wheel because it messes up the lines, I don't like the 2 wheel because it continually goes through bushings and gets sloppy at the pivot points...Kage..quick release yoke, trailer bearings in the wheels, spring dampened, heavy guage steel, roomy platform
