    no "special" way to ride it as for rutting how wet was the ground? shouldn't rut too bad however a single wheel velke leaves a "stripe" where wheel pushes grass over and gets real noticeable the more time you run in same track a two-wheel velke rides in path of walkbehind wheels so not a noticable of a strip

    I use a two wheeled sulky on my 36 Viking and it never causes a problem. I'm 185.

    My BOP dually has a "stepsaver" as they call it that is two wheeled. It doesn't rut and stripes like a bandit. I really like the fact that you are in the same position behind the mower no matter how you turn.

    I don't use my one wheel velkie cuz it leaves a wheel line in my stripes.

    Why would you put a velkie on a 36" mower. It doesn't have the power to carry you IMO.
