Used wright velke's for years, but apparently I weigh a little too much for them. I'm 215 and have ended up replacing wheel hubs and tires on 2 of them each year for the past couple of years. My lighter guys have no issues, but when I'm on one for an extended period (like a week straight), time for a repair. I'm strongly thinking about paying the extra and going with Exmark.

The original is only built to handle a rider up to 200 lbs. Your should look into getting the X2 it is rated for a rider up to 280 lbs.

Exmark standons here. They are great for the full sized tracers but are too heavy for the smaller units. That is when the sulky is in the stowed position.

i run a 32 wb so i dont think it will pull a bronco rider or bull rider. the x2 is very light weight. i doubt this machine will handel anything more. here in florida almost every yard has a gate to deal with. pools must have a gated enclosure
