Who ever said you can't brush hog with a scag.... or a Brand new walker with 3hrs on it..... or for that matter that walkers don't like Hills?:weightlifter:


This property is off to the side of our down town, this is the back side of the buiding that backs onto a large warehouse, and i don't think its been done since the spring of last year!

Didn't run across any cinder blocks or anything in there huh? Looks good to me, hope you charged them well for that mess.

Looks much better. I think you're just a little crazy using your brand new walker on it though. I would be afraid of scratching that beautiful beast!!

No blocks, it was all quite clear, just a few plastic water bottels, but not even that much garbage



And I used the scag to knock most of it all down, and used the walker more to just clean up some of the mess so it doesn't look like a field when it all dry's

We did a similar cleanup recently and approached it in a similar way. We used a 52" mid-mount Gravely and a 48" Turf Tracer to knock it all down, then put a couple of Walkers on it to clean up all the grass. Looked great after we were done.

is it just me or are walker blade's "softer" than normal blades? or is it because their so long compaired to a normal 48 with 3 blades?

I must say, my mowers don't go where my bush hog should. Although I did watch a gentleman with a small exmark mow a construction site that had Johnson Grass over my head (6 feet) about two weeks ago.

How in the world do you take that mower on steep hills without flipping it?

You have to know the terrain you are mowing and you have to become one with your machine. Its simple. I've mowed many hills that people have said "Your nuts!!"
