I just noticed on Ebay that there is a sulky proslide thats for sale. Instead of using wheels on this sulky, it has a skid plate and slides over the turf. Anyone have experience with this and if it really works?

Yep but you have to put weight on the front of your machine. I have one and it works excelent. turns are different than a sulky or velkie but does an excelent job of striping. No rolers or striping kits need with one of these.
I have a 36' and needed 40 lbs to keep the frount down was about the same when I tried the sulkie though. I weigh around 200 and by end of summer am 180 for lack of time eating and water loss.

I bid on some of them. I found the incidence of 0 feedback bidders popping in whenever the price was too low suspicious. Could be legit, but I suspect it MIGHT be shill bidding.

I think i'll try one when i upgrade to a larger mower. Currently running a 36" belt bobcat. Runs like a champ but don't want to put an extra 180 lbs on it to drag around. Anyone have experience with the the sulky on ebay that i always see there, here's the link:

Looks pretty good, and I'm tired of walking behind the mower all the time :)
