    Does anyone know why there is such a price gap between the two?

    I am looking at the swivel sulkies...

    The bull rider seems a lot mower expensive, but is it really work 300 more dollars?

    I am thinking about possibly getting a Havener Swivel sulky and would really like some inputs or comments.

    Thanks!

    I was thinking of getting one off of ebay. Do you think they would take a 200 offer?

    What was the "scratch and dint"? What was effected?

    Also, did you get the 18" or the 15" arm?

    You can request either arm from them at checkout. I have had an original Velke and would put these right in line with quality.

    I had a one wheeled Havener that didn't last worth a darn. Total waste of $200.

    Gosh they've gone way up in price, I paid as much for a new 1-wheeler not that long ago...
    Now that same one is like $250, a Velke is even more and forget the 2-wheelers, some go as high as $400!
    I mean if you can get one for $200, you ain't gonna find much cheaper, my opinion.

    Other than maybe the Proslide, which it seems hasn't really caught on.

    Look, here's one for $140 + shipping:

    I know, that is a really good price.

    I don't even own a walk behind right now, but I know I will have one sooner or later. I was thinking of getting a swivel sulky from them if I could do a best offer for like 200. Who knows though, I may just wait and get one later down the road, but I am just afraid I wont be able to find a better deal on these.
