Walker Mower Field Test

Hi Guys -

I have another field test for you.

Walker wants us to test a new, 2007 model mower AND their catcher system. (http://www.walkermowers.com)

Free use of the brand new mower for your fall mowing/clean-up; write up the experience, take some pictures, be the envy of all your friends.

You must be in Mass., CT or NH for this one. If you aren't in one of these states, sorry (which is too bad, because I sure could use that catcher system -- the piles of clippings on my lawn are killing me!).

If you are in one of these three states and have lots more cutting to do, e-mail me at dcassidy@mrpllc.com.

Anyone still mowing?

I still haven't gotten anyone to field test the new Walker. Could you please consider it?

I would be interested since fall clean-up's coming up. However I'm assuming my location would be out of the range for you guys?

I would be willing to test it for you, I currently run a 26hp efi so if it is a different model that that I can compare it to that. Let me know.

I decided to turn down the offer to do the test as much as I would have liked to I wouldn't have been able to make an apples to apples comparison of the machine due to my limited use of similar machines.

the model they want to test is the 26hp, 48" rear discharge collection unit.
