Thankful For Your Family…. Business?

I have a hydro walk behind mower so I love my Trimmer Trap Bullrider. It has casters so it's like using a stander. I can pull a pin on mine use it like a trailering type one too but I think they did away with that option on the newer ones. I never use in trailering mode anyway. It is a little tricky keeping the mower straight on slopes in caster mode though.
Your saying you can use the sulky as a type that follows the mower and doesnt trailer or use it as a trailering type too with the castor type wheels? I would think that castor type is made SOLELY for staying right behind the mower at all times. If it trailers like a normal 2 wheel velke and it has the castors wheels, doesnt it ride kind f goofy when the castors are trying to go one way and the whole unit is trailering?
I have used both and I prefer the two wheeled Velke. Platform you stand on is bigger and it tracks a lot better, doesn't leave any marks when striping either. It also seems to hold pretty well on a slope where the one wheel will drag the back of the mower down the hill.
This will boil down to personal preference. I cut warm season grass that do not "stripe" so I do not have to worry about a middle wheel mark. I will take a single wheel Velke over a two wheel Velke any day of the week. To me the single rides better and trails better. The two wheel has some shake to it on rough areas and also on smaller mowers [32/36] it seems in tight corners to run off curbs, into beds, hit side of house or fence, ect. Like I say it is personal preference and mine is the single. I will say that I do like the Velke brand sulky though.
