    How much do you weigh and how big of a machine is pulling you?

    170#, 5' 11"
    Proslide keeps me at a comfortable height with the handlebars, no bending or stooping.
    Pulling with a 52" eXmark TTHP hydro floating deck with 17hp V-twin Kaw (my old 14hp 52" hydro Scag pulled it fine too). It works great. I like it because I can step off and instantly have a w/b machine again. Stripes real well, gives smooth ride over almost any ground. Also like it because it keeps me behind the handlebars, no ab workouts like a trailing sulky.

    I like mine too when I can use it on flat ground. Im am 6' 190 and am pulling it with Toro 17hp. But I have a couple of yards that have hills in them, but I love it for all the reasons FrankenScag mentioned. I might try to rig a way to use the proslide and a wheeled sulky when needed. Any ideas?

    love my slide, GRAVELY 15/48 Hydro and i'm 150lbs and 5' 10". I did a yard today w/ a good size hill for around here and it never blinked an eye, don't stop too fast you'll end up calling someone like me for help. It also had some holes and i never felt them like you would w/ a wheeled set up. Pro Slide for life!!!!!!!!!!!!

    210 of muscle and fury!!!!
    15HP Kohler 1 lunger on a Toro 44" deck. I added solid front caster tires and a 35# lead weight and it has no problem propelling my carcass when I need to use it.
