Can My Mower Pull A Sulky?

I have a belt drive 48" bobcat zero turn wb that is probably 15-20 years old. I need to know if this mower can pull a 95" 14 year old boy on a 2 wheel sulky. i wanna buy one so bad, but i need to find a cheaper one, and i need to make sure that it will pull me! Thanks for the advice. If anyone has a 2 wheel sulky for cheap, please tell me

You're eight feet tall?

To answer your question most likely, just more strain on the drive parts.
