    Im new to the walk-behind mowers and was planning on getting one with a sulky, but was just wondering how easy it is to use with a sulky, and if they get in the way at all?

    Very simle to use. One-wheel type back easier than the two-wheel ones IMO.

    The Sulky is very easy to use. And works very well when mowing long sections. Not as healthy as walking, but you will feel the difference at the end of a long day.

    if it's a hydro then get a fixed sulky like lesco's or a bull rider if belt than a velky or jungle wheeels will work.

    Trimmer trap used to sell one ,looked good to me but to be honest i have never been on a sulky. looks like turning sharp or worse yet would be a pain but what do i know ? nothing .

    They are very easy to use. backing up takes some practice though. The single wheel ones work better in tight spots but the dual wheeled (jungle wheels) have much more room to move your feet,the single wheel ones are pretty tight on foot room. Ive owned both and now use the jungle wheels.
