Well I've got to say those look pretty tough. I might have to pick one of those up for my 48" Lesco.
Give us a review, Im thinking of geting one
I cant believe you all think 500 is to much. For something that is going to HELP (maybe not completely fix) the shock that all of us take on these other sulkys, I don't think an extra couple hundred bucks is to bad.
Im only 30 and Ive been in business for several years. I loved the exmark tt60's and thats what our primary mowers were but when you rode behind one all day 4-5 days per week, it really put a hurting on my back, knees and ankles which is why we decided to got to sit down ztr's. If this helped on this issue even a little bit its worth 500 all day long for me. Ive done made up my mind I will be getting one of these next to try out but not until my jungle wheels get worn out on the 48 viking we have. The jungle wheels last us about 2 years and then its time for new one.
By the way, with some practice its super easy to back any trailering 2 wheel suly. I (along with my 2 employees) can back up very easily with our jungle wheels. Just like backing a trailer behind a truck but in the event you jack knife the jungle wheels, you have a broken ankle!!! LOL Never happened to us before but weve pretty much decided that it could very easily break a mans ankle if not careful. Looks like the STOPS they have put on this one will prevent that.
It looks pretty nice, I cant wait to here some reviews!!!!!!!
Do you use tubeless tires or tires with tubes? Also is there grease in the tire bearings?
I have a question...on the "Kage Wheel Kaddy" video it claimed walk behinds with hydro and a sulky are more productive/efficient than zero turns. Does anyone believe that to be true?
There are way too many variables to make blanket assessments. I have a w/b, sometimes using a sulky, sometimes not. I also have a ZTR. In some circumstances, the ZTR seems like a tank, just not productive for the task over the w/b. In other cases, the ZTR is way more productive than the w/b, even with a sulky. I often don't use the sulky on the w/b because it makes the w/b too cumbersome.
Maybe other LCOs have properties that are nearly identical. In my case, none are alike, and what works for one does not work for another.
I'm with you on the Junk Wheels. In the past year or so, something happened to their quality, and it wasn't for the better. Tires, bearings, bushings, tubes etc; every part of these things are crap now. We've had a couple that haven't made it 2 days before the bearings are gone. Tires blowing out the sidewalls in less than a week.
I have to carry a spare one with me so when it breaks, I don't have to walk the rest of the day.
So, $500 for one or $6-700 for one plus a spare. Hmmmmm
All depends. Wide open areas, no way in the world. Areas with obstacles or hills, absolutely.
still no wheel kaddy--------
Are you saying you bought one and it didn't arrive yet?
