Thats alot of grass! What size dumpster and how much do they charge to dump? Dumps here are ridiculous-i think it was $8 a yard last time i had to dump there.

275 per dump, look at the pic of the dumpster and see if you can figure out what size.:hammerhead:

I have no intention of stealing prez's thread I just thought I would share. We have a guy come and pick it up. He uses it for compost. When he first came to the house he offered to pay us for them. I guess to him the compost is valueable. Hey it works for me.

HA!!!! I knew that that walker would get dirty sooner than later....Look at the muffler heat shield. Is it time to sell and buy a new one buddy??? :rolleyes::rolleyes: But in all seriousness, Everything looks incredible. Is that you house next to your yard. Does that dumpster smell after a few days?

Man, he better come the same day cause those bags speed up the stink factor in about 24hrs. He pays you for the bags? them things aren't cheap:dizzy:

No, he doesn't. I wouldn't accept it. He drives to my house so I don't have to go anywhere. Yeah it does stink sometimes after a few days but we do the bulk of our mowing on saturday and he normally comes sat afternoon or sunday so the bulk of the bags are only there for a day.

Believe me, I know they aren't cheap. What do you pay for a roll if you don't mind me asking? I'm curious if it's different in different areas. For a roll I pay $61.75.

Johnny, Walker dealer is the only place you can get them. (like $135 for 80)

Wow prez.

Your dealer charges you alot for the bags. I get 75 on a roll. Mine are about half as much.

That sucks, we pay $135 for a box, Today I picked up a can of touchup they ordered for shiny (just in case:laugh:) They said this stuff is expensive:confused: $63 for 1 aerosol can:cry::cry::cry:Another reason to take care of it:laugh:

Geez.

They are banking off of you. Just kidding. For the money made with these things it's really not to bad. I'm talking about the bags not the spray. That's crazy, $63!!!!

I forgot to ask. How many rolls are in a box?

Wouldn't it be easier to fill up them big green garbage cans and dump them at the end of the day instead of paying for bags? Atleast thats what i do. I don't know if its possible with your operation.

The bags fit the Hopper on the mower, No dumping a Walker in a green garbage can. Wouldn't it be easier? No!
Jason, Used to be 2 rolls in a box now it's 1.

Do you hook those bags on the back of the hopper? Don't they rip easily?

Groomer
04-07-2009, 02:15 PM
WOW! That brought back some old memories of loooonnng ago when bagging was the norm. Imagine the enviromental nightmare if everyone still bagged. Nothing like trying to dig out a pickup truck of rotten 3 day old clippings while hungover! Glad those days are over.

I wonder the same, different ways of doing things in different parts of the country. I know in school they always said to discharge or mulch the clippings, more organic matter. Unless you have a half a foot of clippings on top or are clumping everywhere of course.

Hey Prez
What is the part # for the foot rest that you have on your Walker, I just came from my dealer, who BTW is in the Calender they are June.
He thought he saw something on it but couldn't put his finger on it. thanks

Dave, I don't know? Looked in the parts manual and none of the chrome is available for replacement parts. Screw a piece up and replace it with yellow. I know they said they are making the footrest available to add on other units.
Just looked at June in Athens, tell him I said it looked nice:)

Will do on the Kudos, Dan Ryll is a really decent guy, family owned dealership.
I'll see if Walker can fill me in on the foot rest's, I don't need chrome, paint is fine with me. There's always the curb jumper too!
He said that home is up for sale, the owner is building a new home, he is I think 36 years old, he raise's quarter horses, heck I think we're in the wrong line of work! He also has a Lamborghini in his garage.:cry:
