    I'm looking for a new sulkie. Isn't there one calle the Pro Glide or something close to that. It's a platform with no wheels. Has anyone ever used it?

    If it has no wheels, how to you back up while standing on it?

    You cant back up while standing on it. You have to get off, no different than the type w/wheels.

    We have 7 or 8 1-wheel and 2-wheel velkies...we back right up on them while standing...no need to get off.

    Who makes the ProSlide? Also some guy has a black no name sulky on Ebay, has anyone used this type before. I would hate to think a Sulky is a Sulky.

    TrmmerTrap has the Bull Rider and Bronco Rider that look pretty cool, costs a good chunk of $$ for them, but I need one ASAP. :)

    Here's a the manufacturer's site for the proslide. PROSLIDE

    Keep an eye on eBay there was a guy on there selling new ones for $125-$150.

    with the proslide its really no big deal to back up.. step off it raises itself up then step on it when you go forward again.. they are nice when you need to mow on hills when you can use a sulky.. Once you step off it raises up and outr iof the way.. no need to trip over it or lift it up manually to hang it off your control area...

    ztoro, what did you pay for your Proslide?

    Also rbeitz thanks for the link, I sent them a e-mail to get more info.

    The guy on E-Bay has the black sulkys for about $150.00, I don't want to get one and later wish I had paid the bucks for a good one like Jungle jim's or TrimmerTraps. I have been trying to price the Toro Tuff one with no luck.

    Thanks for the info folks!

    when I got it it was like 175 on ebay... The only thing I didnt like was it felt like a lot of drag on hte mower.... It is the best sulky I ever used though... and its fun to use as well.....
