front deck vs. walk behinds

I have a Walker 42 in cut. I see lots of people with walk behinds. Is there something I am missing? What advantages do they have over front deck mowers?

Well if you don't like the walker I'll trade you my John Deere walkbehind for it

Its nothing YOU are missing, its what THEY are missing.

I have a Walker and it goes in all places a walk behind goes. The only thing about GHS is that it plugs too much in wet grass at speed. The walkbehinds dont do that. I also own a Toro WB.

I solved the Walker problem by getting a 52" SD deck with doubles. That deck is a heavy duty machine and now there is nothing that slows me down.

when do i know when i need to get new tires on the walker? I start slipping fairly often. I was not sure if it was just my handling of the machine or if I need new tires.

If the tread is getting thin its time for tires. If its sliding a lot, check the air pressure and see if maybe it has got to high.

I have an aunt that lives in your area that I visit sometimes.
