    What kind of stand-on's are you guys using. My Exmark dealer sells Jungle Wheels. Does anyone have any experience with these and their third pivot point. Does anyone have any other ideas?

    I have Jungle Wheels and like them. But if you have a hydro, I would get something with casters. I think the Bullrider had casters.

    Just out of curiosity, why would you get casters? What is the advantage? I do have a hydro. TTHP.

    So you can back up without jack-knifing the sulky. With casters, it acts like a Zturn when you back up.

    I have a pair of Jungle Wheels I like them, but only for belt drive mowers. For the TTHP I would get one with casters.

    I use Velke brand. It will back up and they are built real well, but they cost a little more than Jungle Jims. Oh yea, dont forget to step off before backing (long story) http://www.wrightmfg.com/

    I too had JW and was pleased with them. I ended up selling them and picking up a proslide which I like much better.
