What type of walk behind do you have?

Because a cheap one will wear quicker than you can imagine. Good wheels and solid welds are what your looking for. Not sure why anything besides a Quick would need a custom install.

There's also the choice of single wheel or double wheel, trailering or castering and even one that slides along the ground with no wheels. Your choice depends on a lot of factors including the size and type of machine (i.e. gear/belt drive or hydro drive), your size, weight and shoe size, whether your run on soft turf a lot, whether or not a wheel mark down the middle of your rows will be acceptable.

that middle wheel mark is gonna look like the other wheel marks huh? or is it deeper because of my weight? im 6-1 242.

Hmmm...that's on the small side to be pulling a sulky. Not to get too personal, but how much do you weigh? If you're a bigger guy you may be doing burn-outs and have a hard time keeping the front of the mower on the ground.

I see you replied while I was typing my post. Not an ideal situation honestly. If it's a dual wheel usually you won't notice additional wheel marks except on turns, but that's usually no big deal. A single wheel and bigger guys tends to rut and leaves a distinct wheel mark down the middle.

I guess there is no standard name. Sulkey, Velky, Step Saver, Chariot, and so on.

Check out the Wheel Cage "Kaddy" a little more $, but they look like they would make life a lot eaiser.

didnt even think about that, thanks. think ill give the 2 wheel a try. with the 2 wheel you think there will still be problems keeping the front down?

Darryl G

Yeah...you can weight the front though. It' will mostly be a problem when starting off from a stop and going up slopes.

You can always get off and step to the side when making turns that may make your wheels spins or in situations that will cause you to wheelie and then jump back on once the machine is under way.

with the 2 wheel does it make wider turns than the mower or will i stay in the same path?

The trailering type won't. If the front mount is low enough you won't pop wheelies. The mouting plate usually has several holes to allow this.

You have a cheap toy for a mower. I would keep walking until you can get a "real" mower.

I think my walk behind mower would have a heart attack from the shock of it if I ever walked behind it, lol.

I will walk behind it if I'm using my JRCO tine rake dethather, but generally if I'm mowing I'm riding. Yeah, I'll step off for a couple of slopes I have but I don't have slopes like you do. I use a convertible Bullrider sulky that I run in caster mode all of the time. I don't like it in trailering mode. I think the newer Bullriders are castering only. My walk behind is a hydro drive Turf Tracer HP 48.

That mower ranks right up there with the cub cadet and troybilt versions. You can mount a sulky to it but the sheet metal is thin and will have to reinforced. The trannys are weak and will not likely hold up for long.

Keep in mind that if your mower is a belt drive the belts will start to wear and tear faster(with the sulky) than when you walk behind it.
