truck broke down, had to finish the route at 6.1mph

your the 1st person that I know/seen have a hitch on there velky:)

06-26-2003, 10:13 PM
hope it's a tight route.

06-26-2003, 10:27 PM
lol cool

oh and sorry about your truck

i have a back up pick up truck in case my main truck goes poop
but I doubt it since its a 2003

Can you get a closeup shot of the ball hitch on the sulky? Thats interesting indeed... I've been known to do the same with a garden tractor but a w/b...hmm... LOL

06-26-2003, 10:31 PM
BALL HITCH!!!!! the tounge jack is resting on the sulky!
and I'm sitting on it to keep it there! ut I bet I could just put one on the top rolled edge where the "sulky 2000, y2k compliant " sticker is.

But I have a feeling it will smoke the peerless if I start using it like that with any frequency.

And yes it is a tight route 21 props in the same subdivision in clusters of 3-4...maybe a 1/4 mile radius.

Whoa, man you have my respect now! LOL sweet.... I sometimes use my w/b to drag the yard cart around the place, it's kinda setup where you have to sit on the cart to keep it from coming unhitched... but thats totally different, it has a small bolt in it at least!
how fast were you able to go?

06-26-2003, 10:40 PM
How fast....5th gear wide open 6mph if I was lucky.

06-26-2003, 10:49 PM
This is a joke right? If not, are there any hills?

06-26-2003, 11:17 PM
Yep, I think this guy is pulling our leg. No way could he pull that trailer without it hitched, too much weight. Its a cool pic anyway.

I vote he is telling the truth.
If not thats a pretty imaginative joke. If the hitch has an edge of some sort setting it on the sulky where there is another edge and keeping weight on it to keep it from bouncing off is not hard to believe. He is just lucky it didn't start raining.LOL

06-27-2003, 12:12 AM
No joke...I just started slow and the lip on the back of the sulky kept it in place with my weight. when I stopped I just did so very carefully. The tounge jack has a flat plate on the bottom not a wheel and its only a 5x10 trailer and the mower is most of the weight...tounge weight was ony 6o pouds or so.

that sub looks very familiar. I know down here they all look the same but are you around jacksonville.

06-27-2003, 01:15 AM
Good job,

I do that with ALL my accounts. :cry: :gunsfirin :blush: :blush:

I can't get the damn ins, but I got my licence yesterday. Good job and hopefully next time u have better luck. :)

06-27-2003, 10:39 AM
That has got to be a first! That would be a legal nightmare if stopped by the police or if you hit anything. Congratulations on getting your route done.


06-27-2003, 12:32 PM
That shows great ingenuity (quick hire that guy)!!!!.

Really though, you shouldn't post pics like that because your giving Scrubs ideas on ways to lower their overhead:D

Kind of reminds me of a time I used one of our Toro Groundsmasters to pull my pickup so I could jump start it after leaving the ignition on for a couple of hours. My guys couldn't believe the mower was that strong to do it (on flat roadway, I'll admit).
