Has any one used either the deflector or pull out bins for walker mowers? What are the good and bads of both? Thanks

I have the full size bins for sale. I use the deflector and like it better than just open back end. The bins to not fit my smaller hopper.

The bins are for the old style hopper not the new one I bought them when i got my walker and they did not fit so I had to sell them but they work good on the old style and I have not tried the deflector yet so can't help you on that one

Chuacro where are you located? The deflectors don't pile up grass on the lawn? Thanks again

Memphis TN, the home of Elvis, Jerry "The King Lawler", king Wille and Prince Mongo. The deflecter helps for even discharge behind the mower. You do not get the S shaped pile of discharge. Works well on weekly cuts. Sometimes it is easier to bag every 2 week cuts. I love my Walker but when I have heavy growth I bring out my Gravely mulcher.

The bins do infact fit the 10 bushel catcher. You simply have to trim a piece off the front edge. New ones come from the factory pre trimmed.

I like the dump bins. I also have a couple rubbermaid bins that I set under the back of the catcher to catch what falls out when I pull the bins out.

Just curious why you want to use the bins instead of filling the catcher?

I have a one ton and a billy goat loader. My thoughts are if I send a one man crew out he could load clipings easier and faster in the back of a half ton.

Just curious because the bins and the deflector are way different from each other. I have a navigator and will be purchasing bins for it.

You have to do a little engr. on the deflector. It shoots the stuff out and all over had to add another deflector to shoot it down. Hung it on plastic tie raps. Worked fine.

I know this is an old thread, but are the bins still available. I did not see that they were sold.

Curious on the deflector? Is this to help when you don't want to bag?

I've found myself behind and I've run my walker with the door open. Just have to watch out where I shoot the clippings.

If anyone has a pic or link to deflectors I would love to see

Jetta, I just bought a brand new walker. Would they fit the new 10 bushel hopper? Also need to figure out shipping.

I am looking into both the bins and the deflector. I need the bins for when I collect because I dump into a trash barrel with clear bags and it will be easier to dump the bins rather that digging it out with my hands or dumping in the ground first.

For the deflector, it will help deflect the grass down and stop me from shooting against objects. I was cutting yesterday and when I turned I shot at my coworker (did not see him) and he said it hurts. Can you imagine if it is wet and shoots agains the house! I am just wondering how much the deflector folds down for storage. I know that it takes about 30 seconds to put on.

Here is a good image of the deflector. http://emmettequipment.com/?attachment_id=290

If they will work in the 10 bushel hopper, how much to ship to 27253?

4 bins placed under the hopper, tip the hopper up and everything falls into bins...........cheaper and easier than pulling bins out of a bin

One idea is very large trash bags that you can dump straight in to. My walker dealer use to carry them but no longer does.

I may try some from uline this year. So if anyone knows which size or spec bag they use. Please let us know.
