    6'1" 185lbs. Do not use walkbehinds. Only Z's. We have one walkbehind left that we have not sold. Just not productive enough for the work we do.

    I like my lesco set up about 300.00 a little expensive but worth it. It has 2 connections to the mower and pivits side to side and up and down and has two wheels same as the front of the mower

    Might be because the thread title doesn't ask about walk behinds it asks about height and weight:dizzy:

    Sorry, not trying to give you a hard time, thought maybe the other guy misunderstood the the purpose of your thread, every year someone is asking height and weight. Good Luck on your query

    turf medic,
    i have a history of back problems, i was just wondering how tall and how much everyone weighed that used sulkys. which ones are best for the taller guys that doesn't put so much strain on your back. maybe i should've made myself a little clearer on what i'm getting at... my bad. sorry to snap at you..
