    I recently picked up a couple of large lawns and I am considering using a velky. Will i burn out the transmission on a Lesco 48 inch belt drive if i use a velky?

    ive had several 48" belt drives and never had a problem. one of the guys that ran them weighed 250lbs. i would get a 2 wheeled velikie though, the belt drive wont pull a proslide very well, and the single wheeled units leave an ugly looking line in the middle of the yard.
