    I learned on the one wheel. The two has more room. However the one is ok with me.

    So my answer is the one wheel.

    I've always used the two wheel pivot sulkies.

    I think from a physics (i guess?) standpoint I think that with two wheels it takes whatever bump you hit and cuts the force in half? Unless both wheels go into a hole at once. But I may be wrong and I've never used a single wheel.

    My one wheelers just plain screw the stripes right up, and can put some mean ruts in lawns because all of the pressure on one wheels and having a fat employee.

    I'm buying two wheelers before maintenance starts.

    I'm a pro-slide guy...

    But for a belt I'd go with a 2 wheel...
