Ok guys, I picked up a Proslide (on the box and label it says Dura-slide although the dealer invoiced it as a Proslide. Is there any difference? Second question. I mounted it to a 32" Exmark Metro. I followed the directions completly where you measure the back plate of the frame, and there is a supporting bracket. Measure that, drill your holes and put the bolts in. Well, the one bolt I got in, the second bolt I couldn't *IF* I used the re-inforcing back plate that comes with the dura-slide. THe problem is the main huge drive pulley for the entire mower (thing has gotta be a 12 inch diameter disc) smack under the mower) is slightly off-center to begin with, so I can't get the second bolt in. Now, I could either drill NEW Holes and re-mount the entire dura-slide about 3/4" off to the right, which from an operators point of view would make the platform slightly off-center.. I don't even know if it would be perceptible or not, but I also don't want to weaken the back of the frame by drilling a second set of 25/64" holes about 1 inch away from the existing holes I just put in. If I don't use the dura-slide "extra support" backing plate, then I can get the bolts in fine. That is what I did for now just to test it out. Is the Exmark deck thick enough where the extra backing plate is not needed? Second question: The Dura-slide in the upright position hits into the "knee-tap" gear shift lever (R N 12345). Is that "impact" of the dura-slide being lifted up by the gas cylinder enough to cause a problem for the transmission shifter? I figure I probably hit the lever harder with my knee, but that is moving the lever sideways in the direction of travel it was made to go. This is a vertical impact, and the lever is fixed in that direction. I just don't want to cause any problems down the road. But I tested it out on VERY wet grass tonight just to see how it works. I'll check out the stripes it made tommorow morning, and it was silly to mow in such wet grass cause I made divots real easily.. But it was fun flying around in 4th gear cutting... Any advice? Thanks!!
