Walker is HUGE within 50 miles in any direction of Wichita. There are 3 really strong Walker dealers in the Wichita metro area. Plus everyone bags. Plus a lot of lawns just seem to be sized right for Walkers. So... you have a perfect combo for a lot of companies running Walkers. Weekend warriors clear up to 10 crew sized companies run Walkers. Standers of all colors are becoming more common in Wichita, infact I just bought a 48" Rapid Height to run with my Walker. My thoughts is I can do front yards with the Walker while my employee does backs with the Wright, or vice versa. I also run a midmount zero turn but i feel it's almost too cumbersome on regular residential yards.

Went with the 23 because it was a demo unit and cheap. Next new one will be a 25i.

And KS.... That's awesome that you have the 23..... I was back and forth between the 23 and the 26 for a while.... So did you get a deal on it because it had 15 hours on it? I have heard that Walkers are huge in your area.... Is it just the Walker Family connection or dealer network? They are also super huge in the Greater Boston Area...... Where I am now, in Upstate New York, they are non-existent... I am literally the only one with a Walker in my whole City! Well, it's really a town but they call it a city... about 23,000 people....
I'm south of you just a little, and there are Walkers everywhere, there's two dealers, but one has multiple locations. The lawns are just the right size here as well, plus bagging is a complete must.

Is Smith's one of those dealers? My dealer is over the lake in Burlington Vt.

Do you like the dealers that you go to... Can you tell me their names? I am always looking for a dealer that can compare to my old dealer just outside of Boston...

Pro Equipment in Woburn Ma. is just absolutely unbelievable when it comes to customer service...

We used to roll up with the Walkers and they would treat us like it was a pit stop....

If it was something they could fix, they fixed it..... If it was something that was going to take longer, they told us and it stayed but there was absolutely no B.S.... twas awesome!!!

Hahaha.... I am one of those crazy guys that claims I like the non-suspension seats for "feel" of the machine...

Hey there psdnate!!!!! Is that a 62 inch you got on your MT my man??????

How do you like it?

Do you switch back and forth between collection and discharge often?

How is the clipping dispersal?

It's a 52". I've used it once on a property where someones mower broke and grass was really tall. It clumped a lot and wasn't real impressed with it. Never used it on a weekly basis though. I thought I could switch the decks around easier and was disappointed that it wasn't that easy. My plan was to take both decks with me and switch them back and forth but it's too much of a pain.
