I currently run a 32" Wright Stander and wanted to demo a Walker to see what all the hype was about. I tell ya, after running a 26hp ghs with a 48" deck and the upgraded comfort seat.......I did not want to give it back!! The deck wheels have light pressure and don't mash down wet/damp grass before your able to cut. The footprint of the deck is amazing. It floats over turf leaving a smooth non scalping cut. I have a highschool near one of my properties and their trash blows allover. I normally walk it first to pick up to avoid making confetti if I miss something, the walker sucks it up beautifully!! I was able to get under trees, under split rail fencing with ease. I like my Wright but the Walker blows it away. I could mow all day on the Walker without feeling beat up from rough turf. The only draw back I can see about the Walker is the price. I'm fairly new and starting out and it just out of my reach for now. I sure can dream though!!!! Gives me a goal to work towards.

Im not sure how far along you are and how comfortable you are with your progress, but that's what financing is for. Your dealer should have some Spring or even off-season deals. Look into buying a used machine, I have a 48" 20hp kubota diesel ghs with 2500hrs for sale in my area for $5500. Also a 31hp 48" ghs with 2400 hours for $3000, it is a lot of hours but I have seen several Walkers with 5-6k hours on them.

I realize this is old but...Earth5, how is your Walker set up? Split axle? Solid fat rear tire? I really like your stripes.
