    velkies allow you to do more without gettting so tired but they leave there marks in the grass. I have always just walked but I doubled my customer list this winter and was wondering how you or your customers felt about the velkies.

    The 2 wheeled type will follow the tires on the mower. No lines.

    Yes, a sulky will easliy double your productivity and leave you with energy at the end of the day.

    I use a velke and think it makes a tramendus difference considering i have one without and was also wondering about the new proslide and if that made a difference? i am gooing to buy one to check it out cause the one wheeled velke does leave a mark. What are your guys feelings is it worth it (the Proslide)? or have you guys even seen it?
  8. Pro-Slide = can't use on hard surfaces.

    2 wheeled velke will leave a line just inside your tire lines, you can hardly see it.


    POP QUIZ!!!

    I am having trouble seeing Velke lines in the below picture can you see them?

    Lawn Godfather what do you mean you can't use the proslide on hard surfaces? do you mean pavement or some kinds of grass just don't want to waste $300 on it if it doesn't work
    Thanks AK Lawn
  10. Well you have to hop off to back up.

    You have to walk on all pavment.

    Velke you almost never have to get off.
