Anybody had problems with their sulkys or pro-slides ripping through or bending where they mount to the machine? If yes, how did you solve the problem? Wanna know if maybe mine were mounted wrong. Had the problem on 2 machines so far.
I have a proslide and its mounted on the Toro WB. I have never had any problems with metal tearing. What kind of machine are you having problems with?
In any case you could get some thicker stock flat bars and bolt in for a quick fix or reinforce the whole works with a welded in plate.
My pro-slide works good on my 36''toro hydro with 15hp kohler.I weight 175 lbs.Shock absorber has lost a little use though.I might put on a spring to help it back.I've had it 3/4 of a season.I love the split second alternative to ride on small properties,and gated yards.I'm glad i bought one.My turfrider sulky sits in garage for now.I'll still use it again.I'd just re-enforce your unit as needed also.
Yeah, on every sulky Ive owned thus far, the mounting bolts for the sulky hitch plate always seem to work themselves loose. Ive used lock washers, lock nuts (nylon insert/aka nyloc), they all wiggle loose. I might just tighten them up good then put a tack weld on the nuts of the bolts so they cant come loose again haha. Then if I ever needed to take them off the weld would just break with a twist of a wrench or grind it off quickly. Never tore the metal itself though and Im pretty hard on things.
