    I’m thinking about buying a proslide or a 2 wheel sulky. I tried out the proslide for a very short time and had a hard time keeping the front-end on the ground. ( I weigh about 190) I also had trouble finding traction When turning. Has anyone else had those problems? I had to step off every time I turned. I don’t think I’ve heard a bad thing yet about it. So I wondered what the problem was.

    I tried a proslide on a 48 Exmark wb. The front was hard to keep down. I now use one on my 52 Great Dane. It works great!. More weight due to larger and longer deck. The 48 is so short there was not enought weight out front.
