    Hello all. My first post. Cool site!

    I have a 2011 SCAG SW 36" Advantage belt driven walk behind with the Kohler Command Pro 15(HP) engine. It has less than 40 hours on it, I bought it late in the season and only use it on my not so large lawn. I am 5' 10", 190 lbs. Can my mower handle a sulky? I'm not sure how the transmission would handle it. Would I kill it? I don't have major hills and don't cut when it's wet...barely less than 1 acre lot. Thanks for any info or life experiences.

    I have been running a sulky behind my 36" belt drive snapper pro. No problems except when it's really dry outside and dust gets on the engine-transmission belt or if the engine-tranny belt gets wet.

    One lawn?

    Walk, exercise is good for you.

    Lol. I love to walk and be outside, but sometimes time/weather is an issue.

    Thanks all!

    Any suggestions on a type/style/brand of sulky? 1 or 2 wheel?

    A 36" will work with a Sulky. I have a 36 Scag hydro that pulls the Selbro Pro 2 wheel caster sulky and a 180-190 lb operator no problem. The Selbro is very similarto the Havener sulky.
