    To anyone with artritus or similar pains
    The med ultram is one of the reasons i
    can still put in a full day. Some say its
    addictive but i sometime go 2to3 day when i
    forget to take it. So i dont think so.
    Hope it helps as it is a real good painkiller.

    This is just a shot in the dark, but are the wheels properly greased on the sulky. On my velke I have to grease twice a week or I can notice an increase in the amount of strength needed to turn.

    I think I would be looking into getting rid of the proslide. (Never did like those things anyway) Do you realize how much easier and less resistance a 2 wheeled sulky pulls? Make sure you get a solid mount though. (hydrostatic and all) Then you could go back to much lighter springs and much more enjoyment cutting. "Can you say - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?"

    Hey Scraper,
    I never did change my springs. I just kind of put up with it. I did not realize that you were using the Proslide, I just use the single wheel Velkie. My Scag w/ the 18hp Briggs will give forearms like Popeye.The 17 hp strains slightly on hills and has better "feather" touch,so I just left the it alone. Hope the pain goes away!!!!!!!
