    I'm looking to buy a sulky for my lesco belt drive 36 and I was wondering if anyone has any idea which sulky is better. I've used the 2 wheeled models on hydros and I remeber that it some times torn the edges on beds but I just wanna hear some opinions. thanks

    2 wheeled works better because the wheels are as wide as the walk behind and doesn't leave a weird line as with a single wheel

    I have always run 2 wheels, but in a pinch last year I had to buy a single wheel and I hate it. You cant turn around without tearing the yard, and backing up is a pain in the neck.

    thanks guys I was thinking the two wheeled model would be better because I'm 210 lbs and it might be alot of weight on a single wheel especially with a 36 belt drive pulling me.

    I believe that the max weight of the velke (1 wheel) is right around your weight. Go for the 2 wheel.

    what brand do you guys think is a qaulity one. I've seen the two wheeled lesco which is like $340. but Wright makes a two wheeled model with a wierd wheel setup. I wasn't sure which one would be better.

    At 210 lbs you are just a little guy. :laugh: I'm closer to 260. I have a 2 wheel made by velky, and I like it, just keep them greased up.
