I'm just strating out, and there is a sulky that comes with my mower "rack em sulky" Is that a good sulky?
Also with one wheeled sulkies, there's that line down the middle of the strips???
Also i need someone to suggest a sulky that can go in tight spaces in a zero turn, but is built well, and doesn't leaf lines and crap like that.

What brand mower are you getting ? with any one wheeled sulky you'll get that line down the middle of the strips two wheeled sulky you won't and from what I've heard rack em brand sulky are good.

Im getting a Red Hawk 36in hydro, and rack em may be good, but i dont want that strip down the middle. I've heard it looks bad and people regret it.

Yes there is a lot. The company is mainly in Midwest but my dealer said he can fix these and help find parts even though he doesn't sell them.

With all respect, the parts are going to be there. Redhawk has a website you can order directly from them, but the unit is CHINA made.. Just saying...

How would that go warranty wise being that you would need an authorized dealer or the warranty voided if it's like other brands ?

i have a bull rider its pricey but it has casters to you spin with the mower instead of it pivoting on you although you can lock the caster and make it a normal one as well

Here is what I have on my redhawk. I just bought it from a member here on lawnsite a week or so ago. I have only rode around my yard on it and so far it seems good and does not leave any bad lines like a one wheel. Good luck with the redhawk.

Just bought the sulky not the redhawk and it is a goslide.

all 1 wheeled sulkeys leave an ugly wheel mark in the middle of your stripe. Id go with a 2 wheel or a pro slide like pictured above. Im currently running a Jungle Jims sulkey and love it. Hope this helps

What type of mower are you using? and the proslides don't seem logical. They seem like they put more stress on the mower.

I thought about getting a 2 wheel before I bought the goslide. This is the cheapest one I could find and have heard good things about it. Enter code lawnsite1 and get 10% off.
