    I have not built one ,but I own a jungle wheels. I would like to make a sulky like a proslide. The jungle wheels is a pain. Unloading, turning, I hate it. It's great for going straight ,but that's about it. I'm thinking about buying a proslide or building something like it. As far as building a wheeled sulky, if you can weld it looks like a pretty easy project.

    It's a great feeling when you build something like that.

    BUT... make sure you're the only one using it. If an employee uses it and hurts himself, just hand over the keys to everything you own.

    It has to be certified and approved for any employee to use it. :hammerhead:

    Made one for my BOP Super Duty.

    Took a bit of figuring to make it tuck up correctly... but worth the effort.

    If I had to do over again; the only thing I would change is to buy replacement wheels/tires from BOP so everything would match.

    They are all 1 wheel jobs, I'll get the name off it and post a pic. Yeah it would come with the piece that bolts to the mower. Post Office is no problem, UPS ground might be better though
