I have a 50" gravely with 14 horse kawasaki. I know it will pull me on sulky(250 lbs.) because i had one last year that i made and even with not so good belts pulled me fine. So what kinf of prices am i looking at to get a sulky that would work good with this mower???

Thanks guys!! snapper

Any 2 wheeled trailering sulky, I would choose jungle wheels.

Yeah i agree. I like my jungle wheels. I think they are about 300 bucks or so. Well worth it.

Who makes the single wheel sulky. The one where your feet are next to the wheel?

I have the 1 wheel velke on both of my walk behinds and like them, '' mower sulky'' offers a 1 wheel and a 2 wheel version at an economical price, not sure of the quality.

Thanks Rockstate. Does that velke fold up under the handlebars? You know, using a little chain or something. And if it does, is it out of the way so that it doesn't interfere with walking?

I have the two wheel version velke on my 36" husqvarna it does fold up although if you get going to fast it will sometimes swing and hit me so I usually just pull the pin and take it off if I do not plan on using it.

Yes if the velke isnt in use it comes with a chain and hook that you can fold it up and it is out of the way.Sometimes if you are in a hurry it will swing and bump you in the the shin like 398982 stated above.

The two wheel Velke folds up two ways. If you fold it up where the top of the platform faces out, and so that the arm fits in the bottom knotch in the platform, it locks it from swinging. See the instructions that came with it.

Consider the BullRider. Do a search with my name and "Bull Rider" in the text. I won't repeat my experiences here for the sake of brevity, but you will learn from those posts my reasons and experiences after buying.

How about a PRO SLIDE? Haven't seen anyone talking about those in awhile. I was going to buy one last year but ended up finishing the year walking it off. Definitely getting a sulky of some type this year and was still considering the pro slide....any thoughts?

If the sulky can bump you in the shin, why not cinch it up tighter, so it rests closer to the handlebars?

I love the Proslide. This year I plan on using both the Proslide and the Bullrider, switching about every 2 weeks between the two for variety.

I posted yesterday about searching for my experiences with Bull Rider. Other posts will come up in the search for my experiences with ProSlide. The reason I have the Bull Rider is that ProSlide was not for my operation. ProSlide: out -- Bull Rider: in.

Are there any sulkys out there with castor wheels I may be wrong but it seems like it would make it easier to turn

Yes there is a few choices. Several compaines make swivel wheel sulkies. Toro has its trutrak sulky, and Trimmer trap has the Bull Rider.

check out www.trimmertrap.com

If you want to check out Jungle Wheels(which I use) or Velke, you can find both of them for sale at www.alimia.com

I have Proslides on both of my TTHP's. I like them so far. I bought them both off ebay, new in box. I was very skeptical at first but now after using them for a few months I really like them. Good luck.
