Ok I bought the Exmark 36" w/b and I love it. I no longer need the tread mill thats collecting dust ,but.... how long did you guys go before hooking up a sulky. I've been told the sulky is rough on an older guy (a salesman told me that ,and no I didn't buy anything from him). How long did you all take to get used to the mower before going to the sulky ,and is it easier with or without. I see some guys zooming around and they make it look easy. I'm sure it isn't as easy as it looks. Is there a brand that's better than the rest? Thanks for the help, this forum is great.
