I'm looking to purchase some hay caddies for my Kuhn mowers. I have Kuhn 700 & 800 (9 ft & 10ft) After some research I have basically found two styles, inline wheels and offset wheels. My question is which ones are the best?
Pros and Cons of each.
Is one more durable than the other?
Easier to maneuver than the other?
One turn over more than the other?
Off-balanced in certain positions with the mower?Etc....

Any information will help, Thanks.

I've never seen the caddy with inline wheels but I'm thinking the tires will last longer because they won't be sliding on every turn unlike the offset tire models. I have a "Cutter Caddy" that seems to be a good one but it's the offset tire model.

The caddies that are around here are KMC brand off sets. We sold them when I worked at Deere. They are built very well. I"ve not ran one myself though. I have not seen a lot of other models or brands to compare to.

I have run a caddie 2 years now and love it, don't know the brand but the wheels are offset. My thinking is that it will run smoother on rough ground, we run 4.5 to 10 MPH depending on the field and tractor we are using, lot quicker to hook to than 3pt.
