    I would suggest trying out some jungle wheels. They are the best IMOP.

    I dont think they do. I've only seen the sit down sulky by exmark. Havent tried the 2 wheeled velke, I have single wheeled velke on my 48", and looking into Pro Slide for my new 52" TTHP

    At a Turf show today, I saw an Toro, fixed deck, 36" w/b. After staring at awhile, the only difference I saw was the size of the gas cap, and a wheel brake (and the label) against my Exmark 36" w/b Viking. The Toro had a two wheeled sulky that Toro sells.

    The sulky is the one with two platforms, each with a wheel in the rear working as a caster. The sulky was attached to the frame that looked identical to my Exmark.

    My point is that if this two-wheeled sulky was fitted to a Toro, that is identical to my Exmark Viking, then the same Toro sulky should fit on my Exmark Viking.

    Two years ago at the same show, I saw this two-wheeled sulky attached to a Toro. I asked about attaching to Exmark -- "no, it is designed only to fit on Toro." Since some Toro and Exmark designs are now identical, then it should fit some Exmark models. It may not work on your tthp.

    I will clear this up for people again. A Velke is a manufactor of sulkies. His name is Jim Velke and has been known to show up here now and then. A sulky is the actual product that people ride on.

    I've seen some 2 wheel sulkies on ebay that a guy makes himself and sells them in the $150 range. Has anyone purchased one of these, or know anything about them?
