    Very interesting! What "gives" when it needs to go over a bump?

    Lawnrangers,
    Thanks for posting the pics.
    This kit is in prototype testing and is going through changes as we speak, we appreciate the LS members that are testing it for us.
    We have already made some changes due to input from you guys.
    I am sure there will be more, as your suggestions come in.

    Thank you
    Pj

    How hard is it to get underneath for grease fittings, belts, etc ?

    there isnt but one underneath,and the kit is not in the wayof anybelts .i love the way it stripes but ,you gotta be careful ditch jumping,curb hopping, you will get center hung immediately.that is the only drawback.the reason for that is HUSTLERS low center of gravity,and the kit makes it lower to the ground under neath the machine.:confused: ibelieve HUSTLER will figure it out.like mowerconsultant said it only a prototype.....

    Oh I see, a second look shows where it hooks to the deck. If it's going to be like that why not use a roller? Much less friction and harder to get hung up and I'm sure it makes the deck float over things better because it's right by the deck instead of 2' behind it.
    Just a thought.......
    My Proslide sulky should be in tomorrow hopefully, will post several pics of it and let you all know what I think of it :D
