I'm a mechanic at a dealer in nothern ILL and have found that the walker is not at all a service friendly machine. Kohler engines are notorious for slow oil leaks and in the walker, to clean the cooling fins periodically you have to pull the engine to do so. In the past month alone my shop has put 3 short blocks in and done two valve jobs to walker mowers due to over-heating from clogged cooling fins. They are a very high maintenance machine. I suppose if you have the time and can do without your machine fairly often the walker is a good choice. Don't forget the engine is only about 3" above the ground and right in all the dirt and debris. It is a good grooming mower don't get me wrong but it is not a high production machine. Good Luck
