    I just ordered a quick 36...I upgraded (I guess) to the 16 horsepower due to weighing 271 pounds. I literally have 1 ab. I ordered the ride on sulky but now I am wondering if the 14 briggs could pull my phat a$$?

    The 16hp Briggs ELS should have no problem pulling your "phat a$$" around on the Step-Saver.

    If a person can generate the power necessary to ride a bike across a yard; why would a 16 HP engine have a problem?
    If I remember right, a person is only able to produce about 1/5 HP for an extended period.

    Maybe you could walk for a while use the Sulky as a reward and not an excuse. J/K, I weigh in at 235.

    Anyone can be skinny. It takes a dedicated person to sit and eat 5 POOR meals a day. I am big but I am sexy....kinda like big sexy. I wanted to know if it would pull me, not to answer why I should or shouldn't lose weight :dancing: :dancing: .

    Its not the good looks I worry about. Its the ONE AB. I worked hard on it....and all the padding around it protects it.

    I have always worried about the equipment when it comes to me being on it. My partner and employees fly up hill, slopes etc....I can hear the engine BEGGING me to get off.
