Yeah I see everyone raving about them on plowsite so I figured I'd get one. Can't wait to try it out, now I just need to pray for some snow.

What's in your arsenal for fall cleanups? Beside the truck and trailer w/vac.

Well there is that big yellow leaf plow on the truck. Leaves ruts in the lawn from time to time but saves enough time and money to pay for repairs.

Just of sheer curiosity. How long did that cleanup take? How many guys. Trying to compare.

We only use that leaf plow on the cheap customers yards, helps us keep our profit margin the same

That took three people a full day. We were however trimming back a ton of perennials and I trimmed all the shrubs on the property. The house was just bought and the previous homeowner let the yard go this year. Now next year all it needs is mulch and some nice bed and edges and should be set to go.

Everything looks real sharp, I'm in Northern RI good to see more RI guys. Have you had any issues with the split rear tail wheel when it comes to mowing edges or turning on curbs etc? Do you have any other decks? I was contemplating a 48GHS and 52SD.... I want to pick up a new MT26 for this year, just cant decide how to set it up.

Hey JML.... I follow RLM BECAUSE of his split tail...(haha and because he does great work) But seriously, how amazing do his stripes look with the splitty? I run a MT 26.... Well actually now it's a T25i, don't know if you have been to the Walker website recently but they re-branded and re-named everything and everything has a slightly different look too. (grey hoppers)

Apparently it takes a tiny bit of getting used to in terms of dropping the wheel in a mulch bed or off a curb but RLM actually told me if you have been operating Walkers for a while it's really nothing...

Definitely go with the 48ghs.... I have heard that the 48R ghs (reverse) and the 52 ghs are both ok but they are better suited for thinner grass. Both the 48R and the 52 ghs spin in the opposite direction from the original 48 ghs.

As far as a side discharge goes.... If the 62 is not too big for you, I would suggest it. I do not own it.... YET ... But i have been running Walkers for about 18 years and the 62 is great because it is suited for both finish AND rough mowing. On a side note, I have never heard anything bad about the 52 or 56 SD decks either... Remember, the 62 is belt driven....

If you have any Walker questions at all you can P.M me anytime.... And if I don't know the answer, I can give you somebodies name who does.... RLM knows his stuff too, I just saw his thread pop and thought I would jump in....

No offense RLM.....
