    Hey Guys,

    Please pardon me if this question has been asked before, but I'm getting extremely close to having my local Exmark dealer order me a brand new Metro. Going w/15 Kohler, 36". I want him to order me a sulky as well but was wondering what kind is best. Single wheel, double wheel, etc.? And why?

    Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas to all,

    I have been riding on single and double for the last year now and would have to tell you to go double wheel.

    First, you don't end up with the wheel mark in the middle of your mow, they are more stable(IMHO), and take rough terrain better.

    The only thing that may be a problem for some is turning it backwards. I seem to have no problem, but other co-workers do......anyways, you don't back up that often to begin with.

    i run a single wheel which i hate,however the velky single wheel i love, the velky spins around out of the in reverse.some just binds up in reverse(like mine).the trimmertrap bullrider is the best 2wheeler i've seen you got a couple of different ways it will operate,its big,i dont really know how well a15hp will pull it.:cool:

    I use the Exmark sitdown steerable sulky and IMHO it is the best one I have used. I use it on my 48" 17 Kawi TTHP and my 48" 18hp Kohler Viking, it pulles me fine on both. I did have a 36" Exmark 15 hp Kawi w/b that I also used it on and it seemed to work fine also. Good luck.

    I use Jungle Wheels. You'll have no problem backing it up. Good luck!

    I have a toro 44" with the toro tru track and i love it no problem backing up. Only bad thing about it is when you turn it swings out being it is attached at two places on the mower. Now they dont make them for exmark but jungle wheels makes a good two wheel sulky i know a few guys that have them and love them.

    I got my double wheel Velke brand for 100 bucks from a local dealer. It needed new bushings and a few other parts but nothing major. I love it. With my bad knee from college basketball it makes cutting grass a breeze. If you are dropping the coin for a brand new Metro your dealer SHOULD have a couple you could try out- at least in his parking lot or a sidestreet!

    That PS 200 looks identical to my old Turf Rider.

    The best sulky for gear Wb that I love is Jungle Jim's, it hauls *ss, period. (Three pivoting points) It works very well with my Metro, fly on the 4th & 5th gear and leave no ruts or marks. (One gentleman from this site recommended to me, he mowed over 100 accounts with Jungle Jim's on 36" Scag belt Wb).

    Exmark's sit-down sulky is suitable for hydro like TTHP, cause you can back up easily, big difference from gear Wb like Metro, you can put on but don't back up! pain in the butt in tight corner, Jungle Wheels is a snap to turn 180* degree.
