    Is 17 HP enough for a 48 TTHP pulling a sulky or Proslide?

    I got one, pulls it great. Have the mulching deck and it does a great job as well.

    Go for it, I absolutely love it.

    I have the same mower and sulky as above. I installed the weight kit on the front. Helps keep the front wheels on the ground.

    That stand on weighs 55 lbs. Is it hard to lift to the hanger? Does the single wheel leave a track mark?

    I never use the hanger. The stand on is either on, or it's off. It is heavy, but you get used to it.

    It is plenty. You will need the weight kit if mowing hills. I have Pro One sulky with dual caster wheels. Expensive but worth it.
