Yes, we have had one since last fall and purchased another this past week. Sweet machines, well balanced, move quick, cut great, eats leaves, and reasonable priced! I'd say go for it if you know anything about Walkers.

these machines are really cool! you can put them in places you would never put a Tiger or similar mower. They hold slopes and berms really good and they are really nimble. YES--we do over 100 residentials and I would put his machine almost anyplace. The out front deck is really saving a lot of trim time too--we are documenting serious time savings at HOA propeerties and other larger commercials. It's not flawless--you can scalp if you are not paying attention. Take a demo unit out for a full day. If you are experienced with Walkers the learning curve is quick.You do have to use the forward spped control more--same as a mid mount--but it's smooth and comes natural.

I don't have a Super B but from what I have heard, I wish I had bought one vs the 2nd 62" deck for my walker. Nothing but good things.

i love the way the super b is designed (mower)but the deck is a piss poor setup.... there are no grease fittings on the spindles and the 15 foot belt....... looks like a roller coaster ride from hell all the twists and turns .....oh ya and the plastic pullys... wonder how long that stuff will last before it needs to be replaced........... if someone out there has some serious hours on one let us know

I'm at 290 hrs on my first one---still no problems at all. Changed the deck belt @150hrs. 105 hrs on my second one ands this one spends half it's time on slopes and berms. No problems. The cut quality is just fine and it cleans up after itself very well when you get into a deep thick one. You can't compare this model to the other Walkers--his thing moves quick--and you have serious control on slopes and berms.

Do a demo--take it out on your schedule and check it out!

What is the deck size that comes with the Super B and about how much is the set up out the door? I might have to check one out.

60" --we paid 8,400 each but the price just went up a little and our next one will be about 8,700---no big deal
