Should I Buy a Sulky?

I bought a WB 52" Scag last year, my lawn service was only part time. I lost my corporate job, and decided to grow my lawn service. I dont want to spend another 6-10k on a riding Scag, but im tired of walking 10 miles a day. Are sulkys worth the money?

Try a Velke, more maneuverable and less cumbersome than a Sulky.

Hell yea it's worth it. Actually walking with a walk behind makes about as much sense as a soccer helmet. Might as well have a push mower. Get a sulky and cut time and exhaustion in half.

Once you get a sulky, you'll never want to walk behind your machine again.
