    You might also want to check out the Proslide for your new machine. Good luck.

    you will get the hang of it. Actually, the first time that you use it you will think that you're in heaven. You will wonder why you walked all these years

    IMO if you plan on laying stripes, get the proslide, if not get the Bull Rider as Doc Pete mentioned. I bought Jungle Wheels and I like them alot but I really only use them in the spring and fall. I use a striping roller from Big League Lawns and using the Jungle Wheels creates conflict (having to get off, lift the Jungle Wheels up so I can do a "3-point turn" to continue striping).

    I have a single wheeled sulky, after a few minutes you will get the hang of it. At first it feels a little strange but after a short time you will get use to it.
