Don't think it was designed for long distance travel,but it's not as bad as it looks, depends on the size of your bum

oh solid wheels on this one could be even more punishing to the rider. were ther two different styles or has one been upgraded to wheel barrow type wheels ?

I believe you can also have one with a flat roller instead of any wheels,that really would shake the fillings out of your teeth!

Hi Gents. Have not posted much yet or recently but this topic warrants a reply from me. I don't own just a riding sulky in the Simplicity line but I do have a combination dump cart/sulky. It is basically the same as the ride on tractor drawn cart but with a seat and longer tongue. Here are some pics of both styles. The boxes are double hinged so they tip on a slant and then can be tipped fully vertical to empty completely. The box, axle and wheels can be removed and a lawn roller drum substituted. I also own one of these and have added a pic.The roller pic also shows part of my restored Allis Chalmers dump cart of the same design. Hope you find stuff from my side of the pond as interesting as I find yours. Cheers, B10Dave

Here's mine fitted with wheels. I've also seen the same thing without wheels. There was one sold on that auction site recently that was fitted with castor wheels. I've never used mine, but think it would be very awkward to steer with any weight in the barrow.
