Sulky

Looking to buy a sulky for my Exmark 32" 12.5hp walk behind. It's belt driven. Any guidance as to which to get, what brand, two or one wheel, etc would really help.

Also, I really like the Proslide...will what work on my mower because it's belt?

Thanks!

Only do the single wheel if you weigh a buck 5. I bought a cheapy scratch and dent for 180 shipped off of ebay. Seems to be holding up well and I was impressed with the build. Also mine came with no scratches, no dents. Shoot this guy a message on ebay and see if he has anymore. http://shop.ebay.com/bradleymowers/m...4.l1513&_pgn=1 I know they do not recommend the swivel wheels for belt drives.

More weight on a single wheel causes rutting. 2 wheels spreads out the weight better.

I bought a two wheel sulky from trailerracks.com and I love it. It does take some getting used to. I have a 52" WB zero turn scag, and it works great. It hasnt rained in houston in what seems like years, so I know know the effects it has on a soft yard.

At these prices you better get 2-3 lol, they don't normally sell for less than $200 and the way prices have gone
these past years $300 is not at all unusual, I can't believe $125 for either of 1 or 2 wheel, even thou I have several
already I think I'll order some myself, they don't last forever and if you can get several of the same brand going that's
even better because of parts cross matching.

I like that Havener myself
