    What are your opinions? Anyone have the seat option? Can't remember the brand name of it either!

    Thanks for any thoughts,

    Cool design, the only other sit down sulkies I have seen are the trailering type. This one looks pretty good although maybe alittle light duty? Funny they didn't list their brand name anywhere on there just a phone number. Do they have a website or company name even?

    I got the literature from a local Snapper dealer, I suppose I could just call the number and ask what the company name/website is but I thought someone must be using it somewhere out there.

    I know a local LCO using one on a 48" Snapper WB and he likes it. It doesn't look light duty in person.

    If i'm not mistaken, that's the sulky 65Hoss has minus the seat. It's a good one but i'm not to keen on the casters. To me they have too much of a gap showing the ball bearings allowing dirt to get in and cause alot of wear. Hoss loves his when he uses it.

    This sulky looks like the one I use. Mine is a Turfrunner.It's attached to a Exmark 48" Hydro.

    Thanks for all the replies guys.


    You might be right. Funny thing, I looked up their website and the company is about 5 miles from my house! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


    The name Turfrunner sounds familiar. I think that's the name I've seen on my friend's sulky.

    Are Turfrunner and Protero related some how, they look like the same design.

    Thanks again,

    Joel B.

    I wanted to get some opinions of the product as well.

    I tried to find Turfrunner's site. No luck with a web search. Anybody have the address or a pic?
