The Snapper walkbehind we have will not go straight at all while the sulky is connected. The walkbehind is a 48" Hydro, and the sulky is a Havener swivel caster sulky. As soon as we disconnect the sulky the walkbehind goes straight as an arrow.

Thanks,

Is it a dual hydro mower? if so, one is going out (which every way it is turning is the bad one)....

When I demoed a snapper hydro it had a joystick where you could turn to make the mower track straighter when it wasnt. It was right above all of the other controls. Just a thought I dont know what model yours is but the one I tried did.

Yes it does have the tracking adjustment. You just can't get it to adjust straight with the sulky attached.

Is the ground you are on have a downward grade it don't have to be much
on that type of sulky it will pull the (with you on it) mowers rear down hill and
the front up hill. I had a bull rider on a scag hydro and that's what it done.
You can try and put weights on the front that might help.if that don't help go with a fixed wheel sulky like jungle wheels.

If it has the joystick then it should be able to compensate for uneven load. I would look to be sure the pump belt is tight and not slipping or the pulley on the hydro is slipping.
