Why no sulkies? Could get some 2 wheel sulkies that would maintain a decent stripe.
Sorry if you have already answered that
We have always used the one or two wheeled sulkies on our w/b's over the years. I was unfamiliar with the ProSlides until we got to talking about them a few weeks ago...so now I'm curious. They sound like the way to go, or at least something worth trying.

I took quite a few pics of the poor workmanship, if I can dig up the pics I will post them. I would not buy another Pace trailer.

Ill keep that in mind! I thought Pace were high dollar trailers? Oh well that reminds me of the saying a happy customer well tell 10 people about you, an unhappy one will tell 100!

I wish i had gone to sea base, I also went to philmont and got the 100 year anniversary belt buckle! All of my troop looks to me if they need help with landscaping or tree care on there home or our 300 acre camp ground.

Here are a few pics of one of our snow pushers that was in much need of sandblast & paint. All cleaned up now, ready to push some snow.

Pro Turf i have a question about the mini skid steers, I think i seen somewhere in your thread you have a bobcat, I'm looking at the MT52 i'm set up to do a demo this week if the rain ever stops, but how effeceint are they when doing landscaping, i have a small 453 bobcat that i use in the shop and in my salt bin loading trucks, its really small and will just about fit in the bed of a pickup lol, but it being small works great, but small tires no tracks and it gets stuck on wet blacktop and i always thought that the compact size would be great for landscape maint., how do they do as far as going on turf without damage? and i see guys all the time using them, my bobcat dealer says that it will replace most of our wheelbarrow use? Any truth in that? Also we dont do very much hardscaping at all maybe some pavers or something its mostly just maintenance, does the attachments work good like the augers and such we plant alot so that looks like it would be great, also any maintenance issues with yours? I'm a bobcat man but i have looked at toro and vemeer, but will probably stay white and orange. Thanks man!!
