    Just purchased sulky seat for 48"TTHP. The seat seems quite
    low for the ECS handles. Have raised the seat(shims) about
    3" over stock shims that came W/seat. The controls still seem
    to twist my wrist downward a little to much. Any Help?

    Pike,

    The hydro controls are in a fixed location and can not be raised or lowered. Are you using pistol grips or ECS controls?

    ECS Controls. Is the seat designed for these, or the
    pistol grips?

    Pike,

    The sulky should function even better with the ECS controls than it does with the pistol grips.

    I went ahead and raised the seat about 4" W/2 metal shims
    that weigh about 10 pounds. It seems that because the shims are low to the ground, it sort of helps stabilize the extra height of the seat. The seat has worked out great for the type of yards I mow.
    Thanks,
    Pike

    Pike, how are you gonna mow across slope with seated sulky?
    I totally prefer Jungle wheels, or Wright's velke x2, both do excellent on hill, forget the castered type what a pain to mow hill and tight lawn without hitting things or sliding downhill.
    TTHP is an all-around one mean machine, BTW.
