    Just make sure that you don't get a one wheeled. They leave a stripe right down the middle of your stripes. I have one and have just had to deal with it.

    I agree two wheels are better. They balance out the weight, more stable, and don't leave that single line.

    I use a 2 wheel velke sulky love it to death. One of the best investments in regards to production I ever made.

    I have tried them all and bar non is the swivel wheel sulk. Do a search for swivel wheel sulky they run from 200.00 to 300.00. They have scratch and dent models I buy those. They are heavy duty, nice tires, grease points and are powder coated black they ride like nothing else. Money spent is worth it they come with a mounting plate and a really nice mounting hardware. I think it is call a SW 2000

    Yes, like previously said, do NOT get a one wheeled sulky. I have one and it destroyed the nice look of my stripes, now I'm selling it to get a proslide.

    Look into a BullRider from Trimmer Trap. They are the best 2 wheel castering sulkies, IMO. Very heavy-duty.

    I was thinking about buying a walk behind. I was wondering can the sulkies on the market fit any brand of walk behind. Thanks for your info.

    Get a Velky x2. Bolts right up without an adaptor plate and is painted Exmark red. Mine has been worth it's weight in gold.
