I am currently using a one wheel velke. I am 210 lbs. The one wheel velke has worked well, however there were several days last year when the ground was semi-wet and the one wheel velke made ruts. I am wondering how much a 2 wheel velke will help w/ rutting. Would Jungle wheels help more than 2 wheel velke since the Jungle wheels have bigger wheels?

I do not want to spend another $200 (+) for another sulky if it is not going to make much difference.

Thanks for any advice.

Might try the Wright Velke X2. Works well for me.

I used a single-wheeled Velke at one time. Yes, it made ruts when really wet, but I didn't like the wheel mark down the middle. I now have a Bull Rider that is far superior. The wheels track behind my 36" w/b and it is much more comfortable to ride.

I didn't buy a Velke two-wheeled unit, nor Jungle Wheels because the wheels were too close together. The sulky wheels would have made two more sets of tracks. The Bull Rider spacing was best for what I wanted.

Two wheel. They just roll easier, too. One big advantage, is that there is more room to stand. You can move your feet around a little bit, so it helps greatly.

Jungle Wheels spacing works perfect for my 36" w/b. No extra tracks in the turf. I havent noticed the jack-knife effect as bad on the two wheel as bad as on the one wheels I have tried. I've known a lot of guys who have gotten hurt on the one wheel types. The comfort level of the jungle wheels alone makes them worth it.
