One thing to note... when attaching your hook or whatever you attach - make sure you go through something solid on the dash of the mower. Drill through it instead of looping around control arms/bars under the dash.

I've also seen cracked handles as a result of the bouncing. For longer/rougher trips you might consider putting the sulky back on the deck of the trailer. Only pin it up when you're walking sections where you don't use it or on/off the trailer.

thx ...

for now i have enough room to set it on the the deck when mobile... i would use it mainly for unloading...and when needed on a job... under the dash there is a vertical plate with two holes .. and i have the cable that came with the sulky, but the only pracital way to mount it is over the the top of the dash...

it just seems that doing it that way would not be to stable over time....

i guess if i come up with a creative plan i'll share it... but for now it seems to be the only way... its not like there are a whole lot of

I just drilled through my dash for all of my commerical walk behinds and it hangs perfect. We at first were constantly taking it on and off,because I didn't want to drill, but it got to be a pain so we drilled and I have not regreted it since.
