    That’s where I always see it. There’s a place called mulligans that has the cheapest price for a hydro-gear trans my Lesco/Spyker ride-on spreader needs, but I don’t know that they’d have proslides. On a bit of a side note, husqvarna bought the rights to the proslide, so if anyone needs parts for any proslide, go to partstree.com and look under husqvarna.

    $375 shipped for a new one?? That’s really good! I see them for $450 or so plus shipping, but you got a steal my friend, I’d buy two at that price! The first generation proslides cost more than that! Good catch my friend!

    So after 2 or so weeks (maybe 3) very pleased with the proslide. It has cut my labor and fatigue down a lot. Leaf season was starting to take it's toll on me and the proslide helped with that it pretty much does everything stated in the advertisements. Couple of issues. 1. When dirty with leaf debris it does not want to fold up properly when stepping off and back on. I know this to be a safety feature. 2. On my snapper pro it is not too easy to remove and reinstall because the way the snapper pro team is (the install pin is not far enough off the frame for easy removal). Both of these issues very minor considering it has improved my land speed!

    How often do you actually need to remove it from the mower realistically? Can you quickly blow off the proslide before you put the mower away? How is it getting clogged up exactly, what kind of debris is it, and it is between the wear plate and diamond plate? I don’t know where it would build up to impede the natural movement of the proslide. I’m curious now, lol :)

    Hi there! So realistically not sure when I will need to remove it unless I have to park the mower on the trailer sideways then I will because I have a 5 foot wide trailer. Yes if you blow off the proslide all works great .It is mostly when I am mulching leaves that it gets dirty. I think it is around the little brass thing on top.

    I see. Well, I’m sure you’ll be happy with it overall for the time you own it!
