    I'm 225 lbs and would it work? It would be behind a scag or exmark

    i ran one behind a 36" in toro (same as the exmark) and one of my guys that ran it weighed 225-ish. never had a problem on flat cutting. took the sulky off on a hill though.

    My Toro 32" tends to bounce like a mofo on anything but the smoothest lawns with the Jungle Wheels on, but sometimes it's worth it to have the chariot. There's nothing worse than a tiny gate guarding an enormous lawn.

    try adding some of the weights to the front. i know exmark sells a kit, toro should too.

    I just retired it to my yard. It's in my shed beside the Fly-Mow which became obsolete last year when they put in a sidewalk along 3/4 of a mile of frontage.

    I use one behind my 32 some times but when I come to a slope I either take it off or get off and walk along side it.

    I have one on my 32" metro. It does just fine on flat ground, but any kind of a hill your have to jump off.
