    I found a 52" Bunton WB, hydro, 3 yrs old, like new. Has 16 HP B&S Vanguard. Will it pull a sulky ok? Would prefer a Proslide, enough power here? (I weigh 160 lb.)

    That 16hp Briggs Vanguard will pull you all over them yards. Ive got the same engine on one of my 52 walkbehinds,been the best engine ive ever had 8yr 4672hrs i have replaced i belt,a regulator..and thats it. Preventive maintaince is the key. Good luck with your new machine.

    I use my sulky behind my 12.5 kawi belt drive and it works just fine.
