Sorry, I have answered the people directly that have asked for pricing. The current price is $500.

WOW, 500.00 is over priced. I'm sorry but it is what it is. A pro one sulky is only 370. For me looking at this for 5 bones, i would put it towards a stander.

I'm a big believer of the right tool for the right job, sulkies fit a need but most people graduate to a Ztr or stander. I would this at 500, it's going to push people to a stander or Ztr. If your product was 300, i would say it's competitive. For, 4-5K for a walk, plus another 500 for a sulky, i'm buying a stander all day long.

Are there any mower manufacturers that are backing this product?

I like the looks of the bearing setup...trailer bearings on a sulky are a way better idea than what I have seen on other sulkys.

Some of the stuff on this sulky are just plain ol cookie cutter sulky stuff but then you lkook around and notice how it mounts to the mower......ummm does any mower have holes pre drilled where that mount mates up?

awwww man...and dont tell me that crazy permanently attached knuckle on the mount just dangles there when you do a quick release on the sulky?? Holy Crappers Batman... I think you just reinvented the wheel.

The spring suspension.....another idea I really like if Junkle Jims hadnt already beat me outta my knees. I like the idea and would try it in hopes that it works as well as it is crazy looking IDK if I even said that right

I really dont care what sulky it is...if it could stand up to the beating I put down when I go to north padre island and mow in what seems like desert sands conditions, I would buy it. That place is crazy rough on equipment.

Really? I actually thought it would be more money. Between the machined coupler and all of the parts and work that go into building it, that's not a bad price. Compared to every other sulky out there, it's way high, but not when you think about what went into it.

True, I does look well built. But it still needs to be competively priced. My sulkeys now last a good 5 years of hard use and I could almost buy two for 500. Of course by then my WB is almost ready to be replaced!

I had a "non-trailering" sulky and it was very nice for backing up. In the video, you show a competitors sulky getting stuck under the mower as if you have a solution to that problem but you never show yours backing up.

The issue of always "being behind the controls" is a valid point but may not be an issue for some people. When you turn the WB with a "trailering" sulky, your arm away from the way you are turning does have to be extended and could cause manuevering issues, but only for the less experienced operators. I would not buy a sulky that "trailers" after owning one that stays fixed behind the mower.
