No, I have a MC 42" with 500 hrs, bought it last year. The Walker on the trailer is a 36" MS that belongs to a friend of mine.

Thanks, I do too. Hopefully gonna rebuild the engine on it this winter. Knocks/rattles/clicks and burns lots of oil.

I dunno. Probably run it next year, then upgrade to a 95 or so in 2010. Probably keep this one around with a skid sprayer in it or something.

Yep, the 36" walker is MINE! However you use it more than I do anymore... Of course once the leaves get to falling that will change.

As long as I still get to use it either on Friday or Saturday, I'm good.

Ya the grasshopper bogs some with a 23/61 but on bermuda it does pretty good the thing that pulls it down is crab grass. I dont bag with it and couldnt imagine trying i dont think it would do too well. Its not my ideal machine but hey its got 350hr on it and its paid for so i think ill hang on to it for a while.

I love it. Best mower I have ever owned. Sure, the Walker stripes nicer, but stripes don't make you money.

It worked great. Wish it didnt break (not the loadhandler's fault, either...lol). Need to get a new one I guess.
