Not that I know of. Toro makes a 40' walk behind, and used to, maybe still does make a 44' walk behind.

I remember years ago I found one that husqvarna produced and then there were the walkers... Damn dissapointing. Don't want to spend the money on a walker b with 42" deck but not many other options.

curious, why do you specifically need a 42" deck? and not one of the already existing easy to get decks?

Whats the need for the 42?

I just looked. Toro doesn't make the 40" or the 44" any more.

so the only 42" that I know of is the walker.

Grasshopper makes a 40 or 41" mini Ztr that is pretty decent.

I forgot:
Wright makes a 42" stander.

That walker mw isn't made anymore either. I bought both of mine the year before they stopped and REALLY wish I knew that they were going to pull it from production. Now it's hard to find parts and when I do they are extremely expensive. One of mine might be down for good. Right hydro is broken and the engine is starting to go. Im looking at $2500+\- to fix it. I think my best bet is parking it out back to be used as a parts machine to keep my other one going.

the purpose of the mw was to use the attachments and other decks one had collected for the Mts that you already owned. Not intended as a stand alone machine/fleet.

As such things like hydros, etc are supposed to be universal… should all those parts also exist on current or older model Mts, Mcs and Mss?

Nah they are incredible machines and do fine as a stand alone mower. I've been using them for years with no issues. like everything else, after years of use they are starting to wear down. Plus I weight 200lbs which isn't to easy on the hydros.

If they are then I'm going to lay into my mechanic... I'm going off what he told me.

For some reason in my part of the world people are absolutely fascinated with building fences with gates that have posts 48" on center. The 42" deck is ideal for me. It's the biggest deck I can have while still drastically reducing any push mowing... Plus it'll fit between the wheel wells of a fullsize longbed.
