    I've never had one, but looking closely at those pics...it just doesn't look as well built as my Velke's and Jungle Jim.

    It's hard to say from just a picture...but, my initially impression is not impressed. I mean, their idea of "non skid" surface, is a piece of expanded metal welded to the platform?

    I have the velke brand 1 wheel, wish I had of got the 2 wheel now. check out the price for the hook and chain $19.50 , I think I can get that locally alot cheaper(hook and chain that is)

    I've had the two wheel for two years. Works fine. But...

    The hinging point is in between the arm and the mower. So when you turn, you swing out from behind the handles. Other brands put the hinging point in between the arm and platform. That should keep you closer to being centered behind the handles.
    Follow that?

    But if you have a small budget, the JT one is OK.

    You are better off spending a little more money and getting one with castering wheels, when you get stuck in a corner there goes your time savings. I guess it all depends on your properties.
