    I am thinking about purchasing a used one several hours away. I dont have any experience with walk behinds. I weigh about 250 and will there be any problems with this pulling me on a velke or do I need to go bigger on hp. Thanks

    Pulling your weight will be hard on the machine and it will prolly wheelie without weights.

    I have a 36" Metro with a 15 hp Kawi. I weigh about 215lbs. I wouldn't recommend using a velkie. Wished now that I had bought a hydro. Will be selling this mowing soon.
