    With my legs dying of late, I am thinking of buying a dual wheeled Jungle Jim Sulkey to ride on with my 15hp Exmark 48" How well do they turn? I have alot of 1/4 acre yards with a myriad of turns, so will production be the same as if I were walking? Will this attachment affect my stripes?

    I have one on my 48" scag and it is great. Turns just like without it and saves you legs for trimming.

    I've had mine a month or so, and love mine. Never owned another kind/brand to compare them to, and did consider a Pro Slide, but after many years these Jungle Wheels will be like new. Heard the Pro Slides needed parts replaced every few months. (The way I see it, if I was trying to pull somebody around on a Pro Slide VS. a wheeled sulky.......... I know which would take less effort) *Now I can use 4th and 5th gear on this eXmark 48".........3rd was as fast as I ever wanted to walk. The Jungle Wheels tracks are the same as the mower's tracks

    I just bought one a couple of weeks ago and it works good. I was using a velke made by Velke before. Jungle jims velke is a good product but Velke is a little better and a little more money.

    I got one a year ago when I bought my Husky walk behind.

    I like it, saves your legs...

    Turns pretty tight and pretty easy to raise if you want. It comes with a small piece of cable to tie it up.

    I also have the jungle wheels on my 48" exmark and have increased my productivity by 30%. It has been an excellent investment

    I've got jungle wheels on a couple of toro 52" walk behinds and the guys love'em. Also have Velke's on a couple of toro 48" walk behinds that they like just as much.
