Now that you've solved your blowout problem, How are you going to be able to pay your mechanic? His bill will be going up in direct proportion to your productivity going down.

HAHAHA, not funny

Well exmark didnt seem to want to solve the problemso I did. Besides, it is fun to start a little bit of trouble on a rainy day.

Well I hope all that rain makes it fun when you try to use your walker and blower to clean the wet soggy leaves. I am just feeding your fire.

Scott, where did you buy your walker at? Not that Im going to run out and get one but the blowout defineatly makes me use more Q-tips.

Better buy a box of rubber gloves, You will not only have wet leaves in the blower but WET GRASS TOO.

new walker $10,000, blow out baffel $50.00

I had blowout problem on t.t.hp 17/48 until I put on curvy mulching blades and set deck at 2/34 inches.(made spacers for quarter inch intervals) tried it in dry conditions, no blowout at all,picked up every leaf. At 3" with high lifts I chased leaves all over the place. hope this helps, Rich

I got my mower through metro power in North St Paul. With all the clean-ups I have done so far, no dirt boogers even. It is like a dream come true. I did a 1 acre lot of oak leaves last night that had been rained on for a day and a half with no problems what so ever. I run gator blades on there this time of year and it ruduces the leaves by at least 70 %. Call the rep and they will bring one to your job site to demo.

You got me all steamed up so I went to work building a baffle for my EXMARK and after running it with a mulch kit and doubles with mulch blade and high lifts and I had little to no blow out what so ever. And all it cost me was about a $1 worth of 16ga steel and a couple nuts and bolts. Thanks for pissing me off cause now I have done what I needed to do for the last three months. I am not nocking walkers but the way you phrased the post upset me but I am not mad anymore.

Thank you sbvfd592. I had to fabricate my own because exmark does not make one yet, so it only cost me a couple of bucks and I just tried bagging with it and I had doubles with no blowout and it had about 75% thatch in the bag that it could not get up before.

MOW ED I hope your hopper is full and you are just mulching before you collect because it sure looks like there is a lot of clippings on the road side of you.

Evary type of mower has its place and for collecting I don't think anything can beat a walker. Its just what I said before the way he worded it was not funny to me.

enjoying starting a little harmless trouble.

More priceless.

hope those are all flat, postage stamp sized properties, with no white oak leaves! those are the biggest problems i had with my old walker, wouldn't hold a hill, wouldn't climb a hill and was slow as a special olympics athlete.

ranger520 its all fun and games till someone gets they're eye poked out. Its a longshot to where you're at. Just having fun, I don't think anyone should get upset on here because it is after all just a computer and I am just having fun with you. I am happy for you, and hope the best to you with your new investment.

We mulched this pile down and I picked up what was left with the Walker.
That was a huge job worth big $$$.

I actually will run over the leaves with my 36 metro with a mulch kit and them suck them up with the walker if they are to deep. I am currently demoing some mid mounts for some larger propertys I am bidding next season. Looking at hustler though instead of exmark. Also, I have my own compost site so getting rid of debris is not a problem
