looks like a good setup. I've always been curious about those walkers, so the box on the back is a catcher? how long did it take you to get used to having the controls down between your legs? thanks for any info you have

The load handler is great best investment for the money,great for lawn clipping,mulch,soil but prunings have to be loaded quite loose or they get hung up pn the wheel wells.Never had any or tried any other rider but Walker so can't compare.I like the steering controls but she lets ya know when the ground is bumpy,but i am very happy with this machine bought it used it's a 98 just keeps going only minor repairs + reg maintenence. Knock on wood :)

Like the set-up. I also run a Walker and love it. I have been dumping on my trailer and just shoveling off the clippings but have been thinking about a load-handler. The shoveling has become a pain in the rear.

As far as comparing to other machines, I also run an ExMark Lazer Z with a 60" deck and love it too. Each machine has a place in my business. The Walker for getting into tight areas and the ExMark for wide open areas. The Walker definetly has the superior bagging ability.

Nice set-up. I have a similar set up for backing from trailer to my truck. Makes it alot easier.

Nice set up you got there. I got one of those load handlers, great for grass and leaves, but its a pain to use with heavier materials such as rocks, I'm glad I got the dump trailer.

I also bag all my lawns here too. I used to put it in the back of the pickup bed too, but an 8ft pickup bed fills up very quick. Depending on the day, sometimes i'll fill it up once a day. Now that i have the dump trailer, i can go a month without dumping sometimes.

You just dump your whole days worth of clippings in the dump trailer? Doesnt the grass start to rot and stink after a little while of sittin in the trailer?

Eventually its gonna start to eat away at the trailer though...watch it.

And that is very cool how you have the ramp from trailer to truck, never seen anything like it before.

Rot, not yet... Stink... helllll yeaa lol. Thats why i rent out a spot for my dump in the summer time. It smells like crap lol. It will rot maybe in 5 years or so, but before i notice any rust/rot i would have long sanded and painted by then.

Yea, from what i've used it for over the past year, there really isn't much paint inside, but its not all rust either. I'll prob paint it at the end of this comming season. Firewood, grass, rocks, concrete, fork lifts, splitters, atvs etc etc has done its job on it. Worst case, i'll sand and paint the inside and will be like new.

Nice setup. I also have been runnig Walkers for over 10 years and absolutely love them. I bag all my grass and put it in 50 gallon bags and with all the commercial accounts I have I just throw the bags in there dumpster! No more shoveling grass and trying to find a place to dump.
