Any experienced operator will be able to make any sulky perform at the same level as the Kage sulky.

And I don't think they could have found an older sulky to compare it to. My Velke is 7 years old and still has very little play in it. Even the wheel.
I remember the commercial you're referring to...maybe the same producer did both! It's a "little" overdone, but I guess it drives the point home.

Interesting product. I need a sulky for my TTHP 36 (right now I am huffing it).
Toss up on the articulating vs swivel wheel.....

I dont guess they have ever seen or used a Toro TruTrac...tough as nails and by far the best sulky made IMHO.

It's around the same price as the one discussed here but 10x better IMHO. It would have to be adapted to fit but I've seen them on an Exmark which they were not designed for.

Anytime a price isn't listed it means I have to ask...
And, if I have to ask it means I can't afford it.
4 pages of Hemming and Hawing about the issue simply translates to more clues all going the same direction.
I get it, this one's fixing to cost an arm and a leg.

That having been said I'm sure it's nice and all but I paid right around $125 for mine, scratch and dent.
