    Took my old 2 wheel trailing sulky and made it into a castering sulky. It has 8" tires. The platform sits alittle high :( but it works very well and it surprised me how little it affects the mower on hills. It takes some getting used to after switching from trailing sulky but I'm adjusting already. I also welded a stub pipe on the foot platform which lets me put another pipe on that one and a bicycle seat on that pipe. Now it's a walk behind, stand on, or rider :) you can also just stand with the seat still on.

    It's actually not as bad as it looks... I mowed 1/2 acre of my yard with it and the worst part was that since there is no back to lean against it makes you not keep a good posture which hurts your back alot more than your rear end. The seat isn't meant as a total solution but just something to give your feet and knees a rest if you like to use it. I found that the seat wasn't usefull unless the ground was flat and pretty open... I won't be using the seat much if at all but it was too easy to put on there so it may be worth it someday LOL.

    It seems Eric a person would be hunched over a bit if they are standing on your sulkie...gotta be hard on the back after a while. I would pull in in closer to the back of the machine IMO.


    Gel cushion/seat or not, the family jewels are gonna take a beating on that thing. Thanks, but I'll pass LOL.
