    At 295 I'd get a sulky w/ wheels the bigger the wheels the better.

    I weigh about the same as you and when I am running my 61 the deck likes to float a little bit.

    295lb I would have to agree get a sulky it will get you around better unless the mower your using has 17hp or higher and is hydro.

    If you don't have to mow hilly areas like I do, the Pro Slide will work fine. Just know that you won't be able to ride it over anything else other than vegetation, unlike a sulky or velke which can be ridden anywhere. Also, the Pro Slide does make the deck rise a little every now-and-then in certain conditions, though it does stripe a whole lot better.

    P.S. I have a Pro Slide rendition which I paid $200 for on Ebay, if you wanted to try it out I'll sell it for $100 plus shipping.

    The Hustler sulky or a set of jungle wheels will work fine for you. You might want to think about putting some weights on the front of your wb to keep the deck on the ground.
