    I recently purchased a Trimmer Trap Bull Rider sulky for my 36 " ExMark HP Turf Tracer. It weighs about 50 lbs. I need to suspend the Bull Rider while transporting the mower on my trailer due to the space my other mower takes up. There doesn't appear to be a practical part of the mower to chain it to. In addition if there is a place to suspend it I'm concerned about the damage that could be done to the mower as I drive down the road with the potential of the sulky bouncing from a suspended chain. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I've got a 36" Exmark also and have a velkie x2 attached to it. I drilled a hole through the thicker metal under where the hydro control lever is. YOu might have to drill it off center just a tad. didn't bend or damage anything on mine. Dont really know all the dynamics about the bullrider though. Could be more difficult.

    Hi,

    I have a 48 scag walk behind. It came with a chain but I went the cheapest route and I have never had a problem. I use a black bungy cord. I wrap it around the cross member between the grips attaching one end to the attaching loop and I connect the other end to the bungy allowing some play for bumping around when driving. Never had a problem. When in use I leave the bungy and disconnect. When done bungy is there and I just reconnect.
