well the mower is a 52" 15hp kohler Toro, T-bar and floating deck. The kohler is plenty strong enough to pull me, I weigh about 175 .. at times the front can pop up a few inches, but I've learned to not put all my upper weight where my arms/hands are. Also, for some weird reason, when I engage the blades the front is much more stable.

The proslide itself is for the most part, out of the way when its up. You'd have to really not be paying attention to run a shin into it.

The only problem I had with putting it on the toro was a belt near the plate it needed to be bolted on. I eventually got it on without hurting the belt or any other hardware, just took some time.

when its pulling you, your weight is then dragged over the grass. The skid plate is what leaves the stripes.
