Someone mentioned a tractor type walker mower. Do they make a tractor mower, and if so how big?

Flex-deck,

When walker owners and manufacturers talk about Walkers, they call the power unit a "tractor" then there is the deck.

So when you hear someone call a Walker a "tractor" they are speaking of the power unit. It confused me until I went to the Family Reunion in Colorado last summer.

90 yards, wow. Just curious, what do you charge to do that? How many days do you have that type of production?

Walkers worth it

How are the Walkers on hills? Here in the St. Louis area we have alot of hilly properties, some that are difficult to walk on let alone mow.

Greg,
Walkers do great on hills, especially the 26hp efi with 62" sd with a/t tires.

i'm not far north from you on the river also, it gets pretty hilly around here too!

:blob3: im going to try to asnswer some of your ?'s, maint. on my machines is very simple, blades and grease is done on a daily basis, if it can make it till the weekend the major stuff we will keep it till sunday, very little goes to the repair shop. the best thing i ever did was to take a 2 and 4 cycle engine class. i stock all common parts belts, batteries, commonly used parts.
My production for that day is just that day, all employees help out that day, my landscape crew, chem. guy, etc. Tuesday, Wed, and fri are 2 4 man crews with approx. 30-35 per crew.
Finally working on putting up some photos as we speak.


thanks T

captdevo,
tell me more. How does the 62" work on small lawns, scapling?
Side discharge? do you bag in spring or fall (leaves) will the ghs work for doing clean'up and mulching? A/T tires? all terrain?

I did not want to start a new thread, so I'll put it here.
A dealer near me(S.W. Missouri) has two new 26 EFI 48" GHS mowers for sale $8,500. Sounds like a deal!
BTW, I bought a used 20hp 48 GHS this summer. It is GREAT to have on the trailer this time of year.

the 62" decks are nice for more open ground, i prefer the 52" with mulch kit (less baffles), i have a couple properties i bag year round, but for the most part use the GHS spring and fall.

a/t is all terrain tires, these are very nice.
