    I just got a 36 inch metro belt drive with the 12.5 kawasaki engine. Does anyone have experience with this and a proslide?

    Can't decide whether to get one for it or not.

    Had a 14 horse kohler ( with 10 years of use) on a Toro 37 belt drive. Bought a proslide. I weigh 190. I had more problems with the belt drive than the engine. Belts did not pull it well. sold it - the mower- & got an Exmark TTHP 36. The difference is like night & day with a hydro. To give an opion I would say the proslide on a belt drive mower, if you weigh 180 or more, would be marginal at best.
