    What are some opinions on a sulky on a belt driven WB? I hear they wear the belts down really fast but i was just wondering if it would be worth it to get one? Thanks

    I Think If You Take Care Of The Mower, Keep It Tuned, All Belts Properly Adjusted Periodically, And Tires Inflated Right, You Shouldn't Have Any Problems. And (compared To Havin To Walk All Day I'll Take My Chances)
