    Somewhat true and I do walk the small properties, but I have specific requests from homeowners and a townhome assn to use a WB on their properties. 1/2 ac plus. They got tired of Z's on their lawns. Thus, the reason for the sulky.

    And soon they will be scared of your WB's with sulkys and want 21" mowers. Seen it before.

    Hey Roger what brand of swivel wheel sulky were you running on your viking?

    Only sulky I've ever used is the Toro Tru-track? sulky. 2-platforms and 2 castor wheels. It worked well on a 36"wb.

    Last time I looked a Toro 36" floating deck dual hydro was just over 670 lbs. I believe an ExMark 36 TTHP is around 100lbs less. It makes sense to me that a substantially heavy mower will run a castered sulky much better than a sub-500lb mower.

    Bull Rider,

    My version is an older edition. The difference is in the hitch. Also, mine is convertible, that is, can be switched from a caster mode to a trailer mode. I don't think the one in the video is convertible.

    Notice they are running this show on a paved surface, not turf. Also, the mower is a 48" machine, not a 36".

    The idea is great. But the 36" machine is too small to make it work. I continue to use mine in a trailer mode -- works fine, but can't quite make a true zero-turn.
