    I don't doubt the power. Do you have to get off of it to turn? What about turning to stripe?

    I know better outdoor products has a sulky for the Q36 on its website. I'd imagine there are no problems turning with it, but you probably have to get off it if you want to back up.

    You may also need to consider front weights while pulling sulky with less than a 48" deck so the front wont bounce off roots, rock, etc.

    Pulling a sulky with less than a 16hp may burn a transfer gearbox, and will stretch your drive belts in the hot weather if you are belt drive.
