Sulky or Pro Slide??

    Last year I purchased a single wheel sulky for my toro 36 fixed deck belt drive. Towards end of season, most of my lawns had that track trench from all the passes in it. I even made sure to change my pattern every mow to try to reduce it; however it still made the line. Any ideas on how to eliminate the problem. I am really considering moving to the pro slide attatchment, but worried if my machine will have a hard time pulling my 225lb. butt around on it. thank you- B. Lutz-

    I don't ever really worry about or see the trench that your talking about how wet is the grass when u cut it. My buddy has a pro slide and likes it a lot but he only weighs about 180.

    buy a two wheel sulky that follows the wheels of the mower it distributes your weight over two wheels instead of one. Thus reducing the rut.
