Wheel Kaddy Walk Behind Mower Sulky by KAGE® Innovation

Mow Faster For Longer With A Pull Behind Sulky

The KAGE Wheel Kaddy was designed with one purpose in mind: Surpass the longevity of the other sulkies available on the market. Other brands just aren’t built like they are serious about building something to last. Tires are too small, bearings wear out right away, arm welds break…

Our Wheel Kaddy Walk Behind Mower Sulky is also more comfortable for the operator. It is equipped with larger tires, better suspension, and an exclusive pitch adjustment mechanism that allows the operator to stand perfectly level.

Simple Advantages to the Walk-Behind Kaddy

“You mean that I can’t sit down?!”…might be the knee-jerk response to the question “should we use walk-behinds or ZTR’s?”. Well before the jerk travels into the hand on your check book for the costly ZTR, consider the following facts:

  • The walk-behind can maneuver better on slopes with less damage to the turf.Wheel Kaddy Mower Sulky
  • It can get up close around deciduous tree trunks faster with less maneuvering. The smaller wheel width allows a much closer trace around evergreens, without clipping the lower branches week after week.
  • Less turf damage – we can’t say that enough. ZTR’s need more moves in order to turn around without ripping the turf up. This slows you down day after day, minute after minute.
  • Walk-behinds require the operator to stand. After a full day of sitting on a ZTR you are almost more sore and stiff than if you kept yourself limber by standing on a sulke. Picking up garbage and other details that might require leaving the ZTR are less likely to happen because the operator has to do too much to leave his seat.
  • The Kage Kaddy allows the operator to adjust the distance the operator is from the controls so that you are not reaching and are always in control of your machine.

KAGE Kaddy’s Tires & Bearings

The tires sizes range from 10″, 11″ and even 13″ so that they last longer and have less ground pressure. The 3 piece wheel assemblies with tapered roller bearings are standard. The 3 pc rim design makes it easy to change the tire, no special tire changing equipment is necessary.

KAGE Kaddy’s Platform

The Kaddy’s platform is formed from one piece of grade 50 steel, primed and coated with special anti-slip powder coating. The center bridge provides better foothold when traveling on slopes, and the angled ledge by the heel provides additional foot securement, even if the surface of the platform is wet.

Three Exclusive Arm Assemblies To Choose From

250 Arm Assembly

500 Arm Assembly

360 Arm Assembly

 

 

 

 

The arm assembly that the Kaddy uses is exclusive. Durable and long lasting pivot points, platform pitch adjustment, and travel distance – all of these features and more combined into one compact assembly. The 360 & 500 series feature unique suspension offering the smoothest ride possible. The 360 also swings 360 degrees for backing up without damaging turf. All pivot points utilize needle bearing caps, or ball bearings. All models offer pitch adjustment of the operator platform so that it is always level. The suspension system reduces operator fatigue, and provides more control while driving over rough terrain.

500 Series: The original. Simple, yet packed with features and as durable as they come!

WHEEL KADDY 360

360 Series: The newest release. This model features suspension, longevity, and full 360 degree range of motion.

250 Series: Simple and durable. The economic model that gives you the lowest maintenance sulky ever.

Needle Bearing Pivot Points

All models use needle bearings for critical pivot points so that you enjoy a lifetime of use. These bearings are the same that are used in vehicle and tractor drive-trains – you can rest assured that they are going to outlast anything else.

Platform Pitch Adjustment

All 3 models feature platform adjustment so that you can adjust the pitch (level) of the platform. No longer do you have to ride on a slippery platform that is constantly pitched backwards. Now, with the help of the adjustable platform pitch, the operator can actually feel more securely engaged with the controls of the machine. Pitch Adjustment

Suspension Adjustment (500 & 360 models)

The 500 and 360 models feature suspension unlike any other sulky on the market.

Travel Distance Adjustment

Quick Release Mounts

The Wheel Kaddy includes any one of the standard mounts. Each mount includes the quick release to attach the arm assembly easily. The model specific mounts bolt onto the respective machine without the need to drill or weld. Food for thought: Now because the quick release is so easy, crews can use many different machines sharing only a few Kaddy’s (for instance if they carry a spare machine they can swap the Kaddy from the machine that is disabled).
