Fixed wheel or swivel wheel sulky for 36" dual hydro TTHP

Wondering what sulky would work best behind a 36" TTHP.
Havener offers a swivel wheel sulky that looks interesting, anyone use this type of sulky and if so what are your thoughts? Seems like that type would keep you right behind the controls the best of any.....

Anyone out there use Green Touch's two wheel sulky? $125 + ship is it worth it?

Definitely go with the swivel wheel for a hydro. Makes reversing a breeze. I ordered the havner last week and i have to say it is built very well. They are going for 220 on ebay i offered 200 and they took it.

I think the swivel might be big on a 36".

My 36" Exmark Viking was too small, too light, and too small footprint to handle a swivel sulky. Yes, it sounds great on paper, but it just didn't work -- sulky drove the mower. The TT might be a little heavier than a Viking, but the footprint has to be the same.

It did not handle a ProSlide either -- same reasons.

It does fine with a trailer model sulky.

IMO if your using a 36 then you probably need to WALK it cause it isn't a big property.
