The controls seem a little odd to me. I would think that it would take a while to get used to them.

You are correct about the engine choices on the MT model.

This one is a Commemorative MT model 48" GHS deck which they made 320 units to celebrate there 100,000 th machine. Mine being # 196. For these machines they put in a 28 EFI engine. Along with a long list of chrome parts and up grades.

The chromed parts are the wheels, gearbox pto cover, catcher lift handles, grass deflector shield, forward speed control, steering levers, air intake tube, foot rest, headlight mounting bar.

The upgrades are a pearlescent paint job, the new 10 bushel catcher boxes start with these units, suspension seat, cast iron deck gear boxes, headlights, low profile tires, custom serial #plates, commemorative decal package, Max,Bob,Dean signature, a collectors certificate for the wall, oh yeah a commemorative Walker hat too.

To be honest I didn't need a chromed out lawnmower but I got this one with all these upgrades for the same price as a standard unit. I think there are still a few of these out there. Well I know where they have one anyway.

That thing is Brand New! I have one that we use about 2 days a week. Only thing we are not happy with is the leaf control. Shoots them all the way out the back screen. Don't know if it is the power or what. The 26hp's we have leave a perfectly clean yard when done. This mower leaves a lot of crumbs to be blown.
Congrats though and Welcome! Was in Homestead about 2 months ago, wouldn't expect to see many Walkers there with the SAND.

Good call on not expecting to see a Walker down here in Homestead. I bought the machine in Iowa and have it stored up there until I move, in the spring (back to Gods country).
