Oh and I found for cleaning lawnmowers and stuff use some bleach in a spray bottle it removes all the junk thats on the deck so fast, and makes the wheels bright white. Any greasy areas use some citrus degreaser.
Thatnks for the tip.

haha, ya i remember dan telling me about that. They are actually very simple but it is just something to get used to. Youll have to drive it sometime when i get a proslide sulky for it. The proslides are really cool, I wasnt going to get one but I was going to buy a sulky and a striping kit and i thought why not just buy the proslide and knock out 2 birds with one stone. Its definentaly wierd to drive because you feel like the geanie on a majic carpet.

If your not mowing to many hills I would recommend a fixed two wheel velke type. They are great for backing up a lot and pull very easy. The major downfall is if you have to pull it up and down all day for space on the trailer or when you want to walk next to the mower on hills.

Hmmmm cant remember the brand I had but something like that.

Ya ive gone back and forth. Currently on all of our other wb we use jungle wheels 2 wheel sulky, it is sort of like a velke. I love them alot but i thought i might try a proslide for the added striping affect.

One of the companies in my area only uses TTHP's and TT's with proslides. They look like quite an efficiant set-up, and those guys don't miss a beat when stepping on and off the proslide, never once to they have to stop the machine to get on or off. You will be happy with the proslide I am sure.
