I have never owned a Walker. Have three grasshoppers. One is an 02 721d with 2800 hrs. Still used daily. Have an 05 722d with 2000 hrs used daily. They last a real long time when cared for. Have been running grasshoppers for 18 years. I wouldnt own anything else.
The Walker steering handles look awkward being between your legs but I may be totally wrong.

I'm thinking of going back to grasshopper. I have the woods version of the 94 721d and it just contures to the ground better than mid mounts. I have kubota zd326 but its just rough on small lawns when you turn. I have 1800 hrs on my woods. I love my kubota, but I think I am going to smaller lawns and specializing on cut and bagging. Then add the grasshopper attachments and it just an awesome machine. I think if I get one I want a 725d with the t drive and 52inch deck with the grass collection system and edger with the power fold.

With the walker one hand steering the right hand is free to do other stuff. I bungee a 5 gallon bucket to the deck with a pick up stick so I can get the debris off the lawn while mowing (sticks, pine cones, trash). I'm using a 21hp diesel with an old 54 inch sd deck.
