View Full Version : Sulkys and Proslides
11-13-2001, 08:29 AM
I'm looking for a sulky with a spacing between tires that matches a walk behind (ie only one set of tracks). Can anyone point me to a good website or company that makes "wide wheel" sulkys?
Also looking for a good website on powerslides.

The web site for pro slide is http://www.novaecorp.com/
I have the two wheeled velky with a 48 in exmark turf tracer and it works good also.
Mabey a search on sulkys or proslides will give you more info.

Can't go wrong with a ProSlide...been using mine for 2 years now and love it! The striping can't even compare to a wheeled sulky. There have been a few posts on this so search for "Proslide".

My Jungle wheels run in the tracks of the mower wheels.
There's a Velke on E-bay.

I have a proslide that s about 4 years old.. It's the best... It keeps you at ground level not raised up so your bending over the controls.. It's also keeping you directly behind the machine and not jackknifing... Make s excellent stripes, and when you have to back up or dont' need it , it retracts up on it's own...... 5 thumbs up for the proslide

A question for y'all that run the pro-slides, do you ever have a problem with them tearing up turf? How about when it's raining, or just after when it's still wet?

No Probs here tearing up turf, When you turn you have to throw your weight off to the side like you were skiing.. and that causes the plate to tilt up a bit so It wont catch anything.. Even if you dont throw your weight I've not torn any turf.. When it's wet.. I havent' had any bad results.. Other than having to go a bit slower, but you have to do that anyway....

Scapesaurus is right on in his review of the ProSlide. I can't say enough about it! Especially the way it stripes as it is actually a solid plate bending over the grass which really highlights the striping effect. As for tearing up turf...no...the edges are beveled so when you turn you actually do what it is called....slide! The best is when you have to reverse...all you do is step off and like Srex says it automatically retracts.
P.S. How many other sulkies can you stand on one leg or cross your feet and still enjoy the ride? It is so smooth compared to a wheeled sulky that follows every feature of the lawn includes holes. The proslide slides right over them with no joint jarring jolts.
