Proslide question

I have a 48” TTHP with the 17 Kawasaki and was thinking about getting a Proslide sulky. I’m 6’2” and weigh 250 (fyi – I’m not fat so no fat jokes). Would the Proslide and the TTHP be able to pull me along?

Thanks,
Pete

do s search on proslide. I have seen some posts from guys your size using it with no problems on flat grounds... you would probably need some more weight up front though.

Thanks for the reply. I did a search but didn't see that many users above the 200lbs mark. This is why I'm posting.

I use one on a 48" Belt and 52" Dual Drive. Just to be safe add about 25lbs of weight in the front you should be ok. Really steep hills might be a slight problem with a belt drive.

I have a 6 year old belt drive Toro 44" walk behind with a 17 hp kawasaki and a two wheel velke. I am 220lbs and it pulls me around fine on flat ground and small slopes.

Norm Al,
A proslide is a different type of velke or sulkie. It is just a platform probably 1'x1' that does not have any wheels, you just stand on it and slide around the lawn. I'm pretty sure that it is spring loaded and retracts up under the mower when you are not standing on it.

This is correct, but it's about 18" or 20" square.
