View Full Version : Walker field test in the Northeast?????

Jim @ TURF again ...

Here's what we're looking for ...

"I need a Field Test set up for Walker Mfg. a 26 HP model T for mowing and/or picking up leaves....a leaf catcher system. Jeff Plotka from Precision Works would like to have his guy Steve in Plastow, NH help get the end user set up. Got someone between Long Island and Plastow, NH?"

Again ... you'd get the machine for "X" weeks ... send me a brief report on performance, observations, etc. Action photos would be great. We pay for the field test, not Walker (to promote honesty).

Interested? email me at jkendrick@turfmagazine.com.

I'm about an hour north of Plaistow. I don't have a lot of grass left to cut, but I do have A LOT of leaves in the next few weeks. Let me know if I could be a candidate for you.
