Pro-Slide

Pro slide is just like a velke but with out wheels. Its has a thick rubber pad on the bottom ansd it just slides across the turf. Web site I dont know about. I have seen a couple guys buy them with the great dane scampers. But never used one before.

I am a proud owner of a proslide, and i would sale you one right now if i had an extra, because they are SO much nicer than velkes IF you do not have reasons to go over lots of concrette...i have concreet but i just walk accros it, b/c when u step of the slide it folds up out of your way...then just hop back on and u're stripping better, taking bumps better, and staying behind the mower better, than a wheeled velkee that is...email me for any more details...<br>jeffrey@tedorkin.com

The Proslide is the only sulky unit on the market that is self retracting. It really does work and is fantastic to use. It does not put excessive drag on the machine and is a much smoother ride than the wheeled units. It spreads the users weight out over a couple square feet so you just glide over the bumps and holes. A wheeled unit will bump and shake with every hole or rut you hit. The number for Novae Corp is 219-627-8959. their web address is www.novaecorp.com<br>They also have a fantastic modular tool storage system. You build it the way you want. trimmers, blowers, and water cooler racks. They are coming out with some new attachments later this year. It's worth looking at their site.

I can't believe what I'm reading!!! I used to have a pro-slide and it fell apart on me!! Not only that but the strain on my mower cuased all sorts of drive system problems on my belt drives as well as my hydros. It's obvious that Mike works for Novae. See his profile?
Ya gotta have at lease one wheel!
