I have never seen one like this anywhere, so I figure I would post it for those interested.

Hey syzer i seen these before but never used one they look like they give a nice cut and run strong. I see since you picked up your other walker you must really like them now.

I have never seen one with the 52" deck... Never even thought of that. Wonder how much just the power unit costs with no deck? I have a nice 52" SD deck in the shed... Those Walk behinds only have 16 or 18 hp. though. May struggle with the big 52" with the double blades, and the mulch kit? Something to chew on though...

Ooooo, just checked. Only 15hp. No way. Would be way underpowered for that deck. Walker says it will handle up to the 56" though. I say they need another power option on the walkbehind, like 23hp, and let people run up to the 74" on it.

Havent used them yet =), well the guys use the rider with the bed shaper on it. I am taking a leap of faith.

Yes they are, I was unsure if I would like it or not so I bought one used.

Yeah, they have small engines. I dont think it will do great in wet spring growth, but we'll see. I have a 42" mulching deck I plan on running on this unit, but the darn plastic wheels in the back are hitting the wheel motors, so I have no idea whats going on. If I take the black wheels off I think it would be fine, but I really dont want to do that. I thought all the decks were swapable.

They really do need to come out with a high hp version, I was thinking of trying to swap a higher hp motor on there.
