hey if you ever get a chance, could you post a video of it mowing in heavy leaves? I'd like to see how well it picks that up and how often you must empty

2440 hours, bought it used right before resto for $650. I have $1200 into it including purchase. I have done 4 walker resto's in the past, bought 2 new ones and 3 used ones before this one so I am no stranger to them. I very much enjoy the machine, working on it, operating it... etc.

Yes worktunes, like them, use them for fm and plug into iphone both work equally as well... Its nice that when the batteries died i can still use them as headphones for the iphone. Great for leaf cleanups, podcasts make a day with a backpack blower seem like 1/2 hour

I put up another vid, waited a few days for more leaves to fall and blew them into a smaller area, once they are thicker than this you need to slow down and raise the front of the deck up one or 2 pin holes so you don't bulldozer them. This amount of leaves was about 75% of the capacity of my hopper which is the smaller one 7.5 bush.... I like the lower profile of the small bagger and it it the perfect amount to dump into 2 large tupperware style bins to put in the truck.
