    i used to have the same mower when i did a bunch of residential back yards, i had a two wheeled sulke on it, and it worked great.. i found that it bogged down alot in the spring when the grass was thick when it had the mulching kit on it which was on it when i bought it new, but after i took it off i loved it.

    I have a 36" exmark with a 12.5 kawi with a velke pro 1. It pulls pretty good but in thicker conditions, I walk because the extra weight from my fat a$$ bogs it down a bit.

    That 12.5 kawi is okay for medium growth grass but not enough on thick 2 week kind-a- lawn. If you weigh over 165#, it is not gonna give quality cut that you looking for if pulling sulky. You can use as specific area like slope or gated yard, but not as daily bread & butter. It is not enough power.

    Here's the reply you've been looking for. YES. I have a 32 Bob-Cat with a 12 hp Briggs and it will pull my big ass around with Jungle Wheels. I used it for 2 seasons, now it's a trim mower/backup for my other wb. It's nice to have a spare set of Jungle Wheels too.
    See, If the going gets tough you adjust. You adjust the speed or cutting height just as you would anything else.

    Thanks for all of the replies.

    I have the opportunity to purchase one at a steal of a deal. It is only going to be used on small gated back yards and hillsides.

    However, I am lazy and only want it if it will pull a sulky. NO :walking: for me is I can help it. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:



    ooh

    IMO ive never seen a lawn cut with a small walkbehind and a sulky that didnt look like crap. Am I the only one that has noticed this ?
