Yeah the Walker is a great machine for me. Use it every day and love it, makes it so easy to make lawns look amazing.

So its been raining here the ENTIRE week. So I decided to get a little stuff here and there done. Be back mowing full time tomorrow. Gonna be sun up to sun down til I get caught up at this point. Way behind. So I got tired of loosing the pins that hold the trailer gate. So I came up with a little fix to that solution tonight....Got the truck cleaned up ready to get some stuff done too.

Yeah the trailer used to have a small chain riveted to it when I bought the trailer new. But the chain always broke and it wasn't really as heavy duty of a setup as I would like to see. So I got the chain, seperated the links and put the pin on, and welded it all back together.

Yessir that is the plan.

So today was the first day I was able to get back out and cut grass. Solid day and like most of the other Kansas guys, not even close to caught up. But looking a little better I guess. The lawn that the picture is taken from the street with all the shrubbery in front. Those are some Gravely stripes from today. And the rest are all the Walker. On the last job of the day I blew the tail wheel mowing diagonal on a hill, so now I've gotta get that situation handled. Anyways....pics 1,2,and 5 are lawns that I put in

Love it, I've had it since 08. It fell off my trailer doing 70 in 2010, and still starts on the first pull. I don't even wanna know how many hours I've put on the thing. I need to get it in though for a valve job, she's starting to sputter alot when you hit the kill switch, but it still keeps kickin day after day.

Nice stripes, Austin. You seem to do really good work. How did you get that Walker loaded back up with the tire flat?
