I will not argue that Walkers probably give the best cut quality, but I heard they are the most expensive mowers to maintain and repair.

I don't know that I'd agree with the last part of your statement. They are expensive to buy, but I don't think they are that much more expensive to maintain or repair. Besides, what is perfection worth to you?

Go drive one for a few hours....you will not understand until you do. It is nice to be able to drive without pushing forward and very little effort to turn.

See the lever on the right hand side of the seats? Push that lever forward as fast as you want to go and you basically can let go of all the controls and it will go straight. Only use the ones between your legs to gently correct the straightness of your pattern, Until you want to turn. Kinda hard to explain.

They are definitely NOT in the way, you can jump straight off and on very easily.

I am not too familiar with Walker, but if a mowers maintenance cost is high that is coming out of you pocket. Quality is worth a million dollars, only if the someone can recognize it.

Good question!

Have you used a Walker before Southern Pride? What are your thoughts.

(Sorry didn't mean to hi-Jack your thread)

No just Navigator 48" 20 horse doing about 60 yards a week. Never sat on a walker but I figure they aren't near as different as everyone makes them out to be.
