New toy

Picked up a new Walker the other day. Been having a little trouble with it clogging in the morning on my Bermuda lawns. Any body have any insight on the removable screen with the 3/4in holes. Will that really help at all?

Cool mower man. I've always thought walkers were really cool. I don't think there is much of a market for them around here though, everyone side discharges and you'd be hard pressed to get a fair price for collecting.

Thanks. Not to fond of collecting, but i love the cut. My brother in law has acreage where i come dump all the yard debris i want. 90% of all my yards are Bermuda and it is extremely easy to scalp them. This mower will be a big help to reduce that.

3/4" screen is awesome. Yes it increases air flow a lot. It also reduces the clippings in the catcher a bit. Allows some to blow back onto the lawn. Reduced our collections about 25% over all. Can't use it in fall though. Too many leave chunks get through. Good luck. Wish mine still were that nice

I hope you are enjoying your new Walker MT. If you haven't used them before, you and your customers will love it. We have 4 Walkers, two MTs (both 26efi), one 23efi MB and one 18 MB. We try to wait to use the MTs until a little later in the morning when the grass is mostly dry, or it will tend to clog up in the chute above the impeller. Dry bermuda is a cinch. You will also LOVE it when the leaves start falling.
