Should PROSLIDE trailer? A big improvement.

A got a chance to checkout a Proslide in person. Pretty cool concept. I can't understand you they don't have a trailering version seems it would be a lot smoother and less drag (wear and tear).

He means tow like a tag-along trailer... instead of in a fixed position.

Thanks Envy, thats exactly what I mean. For those of us that have spent a lot (too much) time on a sulky this is easy to conceptualize. Trailering would be very smooth and compact and less rigid.

That could be worked out really-really easy.


I would say though... that the reason it is probably a FIXED non-trailering device is because it doubles as a sulky and a striping platform...

That, and there are a lot of people who do not care for a trailering design at all.

Trailering designs are easier for the mower to pull, especially in turns.
But they require a lot of extra "body english" in turns too.

i have one and love it. the reason it is fixed is for the stripe and so you turn with the mower and not independetly. Say if you are tall and turn in a dip with a non fixed one, you might rack yourself. the proslide makes it so you dont. Plus on alot of bumps you slip right over them.

There's a Proslide for sale in the marketplace if anyone's interested.

If not, the website is www.novaecorp.com.

New they're about $400.
