    Hey Guys,

    Im getting ready to buy a Exmark Turf Tracer used, ill be picking it up this week. Now what kind of sulky would you guys suggest? I weigh about 165 so im not that heavy. It need to be able to ride it on pavement and back up with it kinda.

    Also what kind of blades would you suggest? Mulch or side discharge. Grass tends to get high in the fall and clippings are always long. So gator blades, or high lift?

    Any input would be appreciated!

    High lifts will get ya thru the wet tall stuff better then gators. Far as a sulky goes, I went with the bull rider. Anything that will jack knife seemed liked a waste of money to me.

    What size mower ?You also might want to list the year of mower because diff.model years take diff size center hole sizes for the blades.If it is the 15/16" center hole blades are limited.If 5/8 " holes you have many more options.
