    So I am willing to bet that a large majority of you that do snow removal also do landscape maintenance in the summer. I would like to introduce to you Kage's newest product the Wheel Kaddy. This sulky will blow away any that you have used in the past.

    Check out the link below to start seeing the advantages of adding a Wheel Kaddy to your fleet this season.

    We will have a video up soon, I will post again when it is live.

    We'll see, I'll be trying one.

    Not like Jungle Wheels were worth a crap. I had more problems with them last year than all the previous years combined. I don't know how many bearings were replaced and warrantied, and how many tires wore out as well and were warrantied.

    Looks like it would be hard to back up straight. My sulky is ridged mounted to the mower and the wheels pivot 360 degrees.

    Can you get one with a lazy boy recliner?

    Correct

    Your 100% correct, also a danger to the operators IMO.... we have used Jungle wheels before on both our WB units and removed them for the safety of my operators..... we also went with the ridged mount and 360 swivel wheels and foam filled them... operators like them much better and they are far safer in my opinion.

    Kage sulkly does however looks like a much better unit then the Jungle wheels, we had many problems with ours falling apart as well.

    This new Kage will still have safety and handling issues with turning while operator is backing up mower..

    My advice, try one out before you buy... most good dealers can arrange product demos

    The best thing I did was sell my walk behind with the jungle wheels installed, and upgrade to a stander. I appreciate the design aspect of this unit though....well thought out for those who use them.

    We foam filled our wheels and we all needed knee surgery at the end of the season :laughing:

    Considering how much a Velke or Jungle Wheels cost now, that doesn't seem to bad of a deal for what you're getting! It would be neat if Kage came out with a rigid mount version of that for hydro WB's to make reversing easier
