Commercial Walk Behind Mower Sulky

The Proslide XT is the best walk behind lawn mower sulky option available in our opinion.  We have used single wheel sulkies, two-wheel sulkies, and even Kage Wheel Kaddy.  The Proslide XT is far superior to them all.  See our full product description for all of the benefits and then get yourself one so you can experience the difference for yourself!

Return Policy: Buyer pays return shipping and Proslide XT must be in new/like new condition.

The Proslide XT is a commercial lawn mower sulky which is also referred to as a walk behind mower sulky.

What makes the Proslide XT better than the tradition single wheel sulky or 2 wheeled sulkies?  Where should I begin…

  1. The Proslide XT also acts as a striping kit as it extends the full width between your lawn mowers wheels laying the grass down as you mow.
  2. It takes up less room while on your trailer.
  3. It self-retracts every time you step off of it.
  4. It keeps you at ground level so you are still in the proper position to use your lawn mower’s controls.
  5. It spreads your weight over the surface area of the platform you stand on.  No more dark stripes created by single wheel sulkies.
  6. It will not damage your knees like 2 wheeled sulkies do over time.
  7. It is much safer when mowing on hills as you do not have your wheeled sulky in your way which can create a very dangerous situation.
  8. The most common repairs take less than 5 minutes to complete.
  9. It is very similar in price to the traditional wheeled sulkies you are probably familiar with.  By the way, we have the cheapest price available on ProSlide XT’s.  We are an authorized dealer.
  10. The cost of ownership is very similar to wheeled sulkies.  Instead of replacing tires and bearings, you only have a couple of torsion springs, gas shocks, and the wear plate to worry about replacing.  If used properly the Proslide XT will last for years without any issues. Improper use or abuse will, of course, increase your repair costs.  This is true of anything though!

It’s Ryan with Lawn Crack.  I have honestly been using Proslide XT’s since 2010.  I have never owned a wheeled sulky.  I do have several years of experience using both types of wheeled sulkies when I worked for a lawn and landscape company before I started my lawn care service.  I would not steer you wrong!  Here are a couple pictures of my very first hydro walk behind lawn mower with my brand new Proslide XT on it back in 2010!

What if my mower deck is less than 48″ wide? I saw the manufacturer doesn’t recommend use on deck less than 48″…

The reason the manufacturer doesn’t recommend the to be used on decks smaller than 48″ is twofold.

#1 – The decks on the smaller size mowers don’t weight as much as the larger size decks.  With the addition of the users weight which is in the back and low to the ground, makes it more likely the front wheels of the mower will not stay on the ground.  This mainly would occur when starting to move quickly and on inclines.

The solution for this, if needed, is to add weight to the front of your mower deck and/or castor wheel arms.  Just needs to be enough weight to counteract the additional weight in the back.

#2 – Smaller deck mowers typically have smaller engines and transmissions.  Their concern here is that the additional weight of the user may be too much for the engine and transmission to function properly.

What is the weight limit of the user/mower operator?

The manufacturer recommends user be under 205 pounds, but it is not because the Proslide XT is not built to withstand that amount of weight.  It is because there is a possibility that the front castor wheels will want to lift off the ground more than normal when accelerating quickly or when traveling up inclines.  I personally operated our mowers with Proslide’s weighing 220 pounds for years without issue.  I even had one employee that weight 270 pounds on it, but 270 pounds did put some stress on the Proslide.

Will it fit on my mower?

If a wheeled sulky of any kind works with your mower, the Proslide XT should too.  That is a pretty standard rule of thumb.  We used them on Snapper Pro walk behinds with the foot petal breaks without issue (minor grinding needed to make the mounting bracket fit).  Please just ask if you are unsure, and send pictures if possible of the back of your specific mower!

I have a belt drive walk behind…

There is a chance that with the addition of the weight of the user, the belt and pulley transmission system on your mower may fail.  This is why the manufacturers, like most wheeled sulky manufacturers, recommend them for use on hydro-drive machines.  

With that said, I personally know plenty of people using Proslides on belt-drive machines without issue.  I also know a couple that simply returned theirs because their mower would not pull them around after installation.  There are simply too many mowers for us to possibly know if you will have this issue or not.

    I used wheeled velkes when working for a lawn and landscape company, but opted to try the Proslide XT when I started my company. The difference is night and day. I am really not sure why these are not more popular. I think they are superior to single and two-wheeled sulkies in every way possible.

    Just purchased a Proslide from Ryan a few weeks ago. Being use to a wheeled sulky, it took me a few uses to get the hang of it. What I thought was a product defect, ended up being user error. Ryan is a stand up guy who backs what he sells. He was easy to get in touch with after the sale and stayed in contact with me until I was comfortable efficient using the Proslide. You won’t find customer service like this anywhere! This is not a paid review- I’m just that satisfied with the product and Lawn Crack’s service. The Proslide is a very smooth ride and is quick to mount and dismount. It’s nice not having to bend over and chain the sulky up when you need to walk a Short distance. The more you use it, the better you’ll like it.

      Very glad to hear that Brian! Thanks so much for the review…I had the same learning curve issues my first time on one too!!!

  3. Aaron (verified owner)

    Hands down this is the best product to use with a walk behind mower. No more jerking or wobbling around on a crappy wheeled velkie/sulky.

    Lawn Crack is also the best place to order them from. Trust me, I watch my pennies. Ryan has the lowest price anywhere. You can’t even order these direct from Novae cheaper! I tried! Ryan had them shipped same day I ordered them. Great service! Great guy! And no this is not paid endorsement. Keep mowing! Keep growing!

    • Ryan Sciamanna (verified owner)

      Thank you sir! Pleasure doing business with you.

  4. David Holston (verified owner)

    This Proslide XT works very well for me!! It doesn’t strain you as much as a wheeled sulkey does. It glides over bumps and stripes lawns very nicely!
    It is definitely worth the money!
    I am in Northern Idaho, and there are only four other proslide owners up here… You can tell when you see a lawn that was cut with a mower using a proslide!

    • Ryan Sciamanna (verified owner)

      Hi David. I agree with all your comments! Very glad you like it!

  5. Brandon Atchison “Reel Lawns” (verified owner)

    Absolutely my favorite, tried many different wheeled sulkies but this is by far the best. Only suggestion is to tighten all the bolts before you use it. I had a couple bolts come loose within the first couple weeks of use. Tightened those down and I will not be trying any other sulkies. Thanks Ryan!

    • Ryan Sciamanna (verified owner)

      Hey Brandon. Thank you! And thank you for the feedback on the bolts!

  6. Nico

    Call me! I need a Proslide!

  7. Robbie (verified owner)

    Bought this last year for my belt-driven 48″ Gravely. Works great. I debated for a while if this would work on a belt-drive. Don’t worry about it and buy the best velke you can get. You won’t be disappointed.

    • Ryan Sciamanna (verified owner)

      Thanks for the review Robbie! I could never go back to a wheeled velke of any type after stepping on a Proslide myself.

  8. Don

    Love this thing! Can’t belief I kept using wheeled velkes for so long. Huge difference…in a good way!

    • Ryan Sciamanna (verified owner)

      Believe it!!! LOL – typos 😃😅

  9. John Long

    I am a long time user of the Proslide XT. I am so glad I found Lawn Crack! It’s the best price you can find anywhere and the customer service is top notch.

  10. Taylor Greene

    Best sulky available! I have used Proslide XT’s for a number of years and can’t be happier. I found Lawn Crack last year and am super happy that I did because the price and customer service can’t be beat!

  11. Ryan Sciamanna (verified owner)
