My new baby! I've had it for two weeks now, and couldn't ask for a machine that fits my needs better!:clapping:

How is the cut on the 56" deck. I have the 62" deck and its scalps to much, thinking about trading it in for 56".

very controlled and precise. The casters in the front seem to consistently be in the perfect position.

That sure is a great looking mower. One day I hope to be able to afford to add a Walker to my fleet. That would really speed up leaf cleanup.

Too big for my lawns and too heavy. It doesn't track hills as well as the MB. The B is a perfect fit for my properties.

I hear so much about the Walkers, however very few people in my area use them. What has your experience been with the side discharge system vs the bagging system, pros vs cons?

I would say that GHS Walkers are hands down the best bagging mowers. The SD decks produced by walker are just that. They are Walkers answer for SD applications (an mulching Applications). You get the Superior cut of a walker mower, along with its mobility and increased productivity. I love the SD deck I have for the MB. I simply don't think I could ask for a better quality cut. It's also, extremely maneuverable. I was totally blown away with the type of hills this thing can hold. Find a Demo, see for yourself. Don't let the fact that just because they are not a popular mower in your area make your decision for you.

Those are a a work of art. Although someone said that they can be fragile in some areas. Is this true?

it's my first MB, I used to have an MD but couldn't justify bagging everything when my customers don't want to pay extra for it....

Not sure yet. Every mower has it's weak spots, I think it's just a matter of being aware of them and ready to fix them when something happens goes wrong. I just can't get over the cut quality. I have a few areas I am careful on, because as with any light deck mower, the caster bounce on rough ground. I broke a caster on my walk behind when it came down perpendicular to the direction I was cutting... That sucked. Over all it's a well designed machine.

I agree that over time the decks get worn more than any other machine we have, and will require some sheetwork. BTW, we still run our first walker, and this is the one I'm referring to. Its 8 years old now. Cant complain otherwise.

These are great machines!!!! We have 2 GHS units that we were using full time with 2 extra SD decks. We now use our 2 GHS machines only for spring and fall clean up and now run 2 MB's for the rest of the mowing season. Nice Choice!!!!!!:clapping::

Looks like a toe cutter for sure! I'd e afraid to put my feet anywhere near the grip tape! Do you use it with your feet in the air for safety? j/k nice ride
