    No they sure don't, but i put a proslide on mine and it stripes as well as a kit would. Plus, it beats walking.

    No but I am going to build a strip kit like what I have on my standers. Just need some time to do so. If I ever get around to it, I will post some pics.

    McCauley, You say you have a proslide on a 32" How does that work. I have a Velke on my 36 but that mower is used mostly for small properties. I do not use the velke because it is to hard to turn and back up, which I do a lot on smaller lots. It is quicker for me to just walk than always get on and off. Does the proslide work different?

    Here's a flap from eXmark on my Bob-Cat. I thought they were standard equipment.

    PMLAWN,
    The proslide works well on my metro, but you wont be able to do any backing up, because it will begin to retract and the mower might run you over. If I ever need to back up I just step off the slide, and it retracts back up under the mower, put the mower in neutral, turn it around and line it up, step back on and take off. On smaller yards, somtimes its quicker just to leave the proslide up, and just walk. Oh yeah, you wont be able to go across any pavement on it either, it wears the skid plate pretty bad. I think a replacement is $40, and I've heard one will last a season or two.
