    Had a proslide xt. hated it. to long and couldnt ride on concrete. stress lawns during drought season (we change directions every time aswell). Got a set of Jungle Jims Jungle Wheels. They are perfect. I can zero turn and back up with no problems. Only sulky ill buy. I can go full speed in reverse as well. Not very hard.

    I am sure in many cases they could be easily modified with some small amount of welding and in other cases they would mount up using a drill where needed.

    No steel toes? Or that wouldn't have helped?

    Well after reading everyones' opinions, I think I just need to buy a 2-wheeled castor sulky as well as a proslide and fabricate a quickmount bracket that can run both...

    I have used a bullrider for a while season now. It has been nice. Turning is alot easier if you are fluid with your motions. But as others said the tru-trak is wheres it at.

    But I have to ask... your sig line says you have a 21" and your getting a 36 AND want to sulky it. Is the stuff your going to mow with the 36 so big you need a sulky? Why not a bigger mower?

    I use a JD 38" and sometimes don't know what I would do without my sulky, granted I have a non belt driven mower and its freaking heavy as hell so the sulky doesn't make a difference on it. But I love using it on yards 1/3 acre and up :cool2: JMO

    A significant percentage of houses in this area have 36" gates with very large backyards.
