    I just got a bullrider for my exmark 48" hydro walk behind. My friend at a local mower repair shop is going to help me adapt it to my mower. He says we can install it but I will be unhappy with a velkie on my mower. He says it will wheelie up when I take off and will get in my way and will bog down my machine and wear it out faster. Any thoughts?

    1.) Adapt it? It should pretty much drill and bolt right on.<p>2.) Didn't he even look at the Bull Rider? The wheels are slightly in front of the riders weight/feet, keeping the nose down.<p>3.) Bog down the machines? How many HP do you have. The hydro will take the additional load.<p>4.) Wear out faster? The mower or you?<br>Forget about the mower wearing out, keep yourself fresh and productive.

    I use one and have no problem with it.<br>I sometime have trouble backing up with it.<br>I did have one a velkie that I had to put weights on front to stop it from bunny hopping.
