I was wondering if anyone is using a Proslide behind a 36 walk behind. i just picked one up from a friend who left the landscaping community and it needs parts, so my question is, to fix or not to fix? should i just go buy a wheeled sulky? i have never seen anyone using a proslide on a 36 belt drive.

Sorry, i don't have any pictures bu i should have included that it needs a new gas shock and a new mounting bracket totaling fifty dollars plus shipping. not bad for parts but why waste the fifty bucks if i cant use the pro slide on my bobcat.

It depends on the engines hp, but you may need to add weights to front of the WB to keep the front end down.

the weight is only on the sulky, does not transfer downward weight to mower to raise front of mower because of swivels in between sulky and mower, it only pulls the weight. 15 horse will pull it very well. depends on what gear u use.

Now i see what you're saying. but you have to remember this is a proslide in question, it has no wheel, does this change anything. I am not being sarcastic you seem to know what you're talking about.

weather it be sliding or on wheels it pulls the weight and the weight is only yours pushing down on the sulky. so it only has to do with what you have for HP thay you have to pull it with , not weight transference.
