    Guess what! The sulky broke on my 50" gravely wb and I found out that the weight of the sulky was making the mower unstable. That's why it was having a hard time on the hills! I also like the idea of weight in the tires.

    Hurray! The sulky broke!:clapping:

    If you want the center of gravity even lower for more stability, pull the pin and drop the sulky for the hills. Depends how steep.

    Yes. I actually needed to remove the sulky to make the mower work right.
