    They're called sulkys or sulkies. You can get them on ebay for around $100-$150.

    No. There are several brands out there and they are completely universal. Look into some of these supply places for lawn equipment and parts. A few are sponsors on this site...just click on their icon. It IS recommended that you get the two wheeled version over the on wheeled, though.

    but dont have that kind of money right now, but i do have good welding skills and a bunch of junk laying around the house i think i may try to weld something up. mabey ill use the back part of a tricycle. its flat to stand on and already has 2 wheels and an axle. all i have to do is get some sheet metal to build something to protect my feet from going off the front of it..

    and prolly some diamond shaped wire mesh to add grip..
