    Although this subject has been beaten to death, I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

    In the market for a sulky. It is for a Toro Proline 32" WB.

    Here is the criteria:
    - needs to have 2 wheels
    - needs to be able to fold up under the handlebars (preferably out of the way enough to actually be able to use the mower without the sulky without having to take it off)
    - needs to be able to detach with the pull of a pin
    - needs to be sturdy (I don't know if any are flimsy, but it has to be tough)
    - would be nice if it could pivot so that I don't have to pick it up to go in reverse

    Is it out there or am I hoping for too much? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks prime, I was looking at that one earlier because I came across it during my search. Really didn't expect anything to fit ALL my criteria, but hey, I can't complain! Also, that post I read earlier lead me to power41.com where it is $199. That sounds like a good deal considering list is $295. Thanks again.

    Ever try a Bull-Rider? They meet all of your needs except for 1. If you want to pull it up under the handles, you do have to pull the pin and detach the main platform. Other than that they suit your criteria quite well.

    Thanks Rick, but I would really like to be able to leave it on.

    Strayer, good idea. Although during this time of year, $199 sounds reasonable as my time is spread pretty thin.

    Thanks for the info and ideas guys.

    Also, I saw on J-Thomas that for the velke they have a no air tire. Anybody use it? Seems like it would be a little hard on the knees.

    The Two wheel Velke x2 meets all that criteria. No other two wheel sulky folds compactly under the handlebars. The x2 even folds two ways, one way more compactly and prevents it from swinging. Also it pivots 180 degrees out of your way when you back up so you don't have to pick it up.
    2 wheels
    Sturdy
    Pull pin

    Wright, who makes the Velke x2? Or is Velke a brand name? Or is velke another word for sulky? Thanks, sorry for all the questions.
