    I have a 48" bobcat belt drive 15hp wb. I was offered a bull rider style sulky for it at a pretty cheap price. Will it run fine on the belt drive or will i have problems?

    TrimmerTrap says that a 48" deck is the minimum size they recommend with the Bull Rider. While they don't say that it will not work on a belt drive, they also suggest a hydro.

    Bottom line - you are right at the minimum requirements to use the Bull Rider. TrimmerTrap also offers a Bronco Rider that will work on mowers where the Bull Rider will not.

    Don't get it. Those are for hydros and the advantage is they back up. No point on a belt drive since they don't back up anyway. Also the sulkies don't hold hills at all even on a hydro. They also put a lot more strain on the drive system.
