    I have the 2 wheel models and they are good. Never tried the 1 wheel and dont think I would like it. What is the price on these?? I think I gave about $225.00 for mine

    Two wheel is $275 now, did yours last? I mean the wheel bearing or whatever. How replaceble are they, are the parts generic? It's just that I've heard some iffy things like Jungle wheels break at the welds etc.

    I agree with the above post. I won't use any other sulky than Jungle Jim's Jungle Wheels.

    So you are looking at about $360 shipped to your door. That is fairly expensive. I would think you could find a better deal. They are claiming that is a Velkey. If it is, I would guess that it is decent. Velkey is the originator of sulkys. Do you not have any dealers of mower equipment in Canada?
     
  8. We have shipped several hundred sulkies this year, and we have had no problems with them at all.

    That wouldn't be too bad a price with the discount.

    Matt, who makes your sulkies? That thing is crazy looking! I am not saying that is a bad thing. Looks heavy too.
