I have never driven a walkbehind w/ a sulky. I am going to get one for my Exmark turf tracer 52&quot; and I was wondering how good is the exmark self steering seated sulky? Also, for normal sulkys, do you jacknife, or sometimes, when turning, have to stretch to reach the controls? Like I said I haven't ever used a sulky, so please fill me in on this subject. I want to buy that exmark one that you sit down on, but can you see where you are going on that thing???? It looks so low to the ground that it seems you couldn't see very well. I am kinda short, 5'4&quot;, so this is a large consern of mine. Please let me know of any info you guys could provide. <p>Thanks,<br>Grassboy

I wouldn't waste my money on a sit down model. I use a set of jungle wheels and have no problems keeping my hands on the control while turning because it doesn't pivot up by the mower but in the middle the only downside is you can't back up or it will jacknife. I would suggest you get a set of rocket wheels they don't have any pivot points both of the wheels swivel instead so you can backup.
