hi, I'm wondering if a sulky has much benefit for reidential yards. I'm using a 36" hydro exmark. Which sulky would be best for this, or would it be better to just walk? I need to be able to get around tightly landscaped areas. thanks for any advice. :cool2:

I think it is the best invention for a walk behid. I can work all day and not be worn out like I was prior to the purchasing of a velke. Best $300 I ever spent.

I love having my Proslide. Any stretch more than 10' or so, I jump onto it. If I'm in tight areas, I'll walk behind the mower. I'm on mine 95% of the time.

I have to walk one of my residentials and the rest I sulky. Sometimes I have to jump off and walk behind it but oh well, I can just jump back on it and save my energy.

I was going to buy a sulky but came across the proslide on ebay for around $120...normally $300. I would never pay $300 for one, but the $120 was a good investment. The only bad thing is that you cannot (or suppose to) go over concrete with it. If you have gate and your mower is tight like my 36" TTHP is, you might was to measure whatever sulky you are wanting. If memory serves correct, the Lesco sulky is slightly wider than 36" which would not work for many of my gates.

We Walk everything now...props are small & heavily landscaped & sulky is just in the way most of the time...Would Never get a Proslide for a hydro...from what I understand you can't back up on one ! Big Minus ....

Guys also seem to do a better job Walking....if there were More Wide Open Spaces....Mabe...

Yes, same here.
