    The trailer is 14x6.5, went with that because Maine doesn't require brakes on single axle trailers and it hold my mowers perfectly. The husky is a W4815 belt drive. I have the bagger for it too but its not that great, I discharge with it 95% of the time. It has been really reliable for me knock on wood. The kawasaki has all kinds of power and startes up first pull everytime. The one thing I don't like besides it being belt drive is the fixed deck, its been known to scalp here and there but once you get the hang of it you can guess when it will happen and avoid it. I got a really good deal, I bought it off a doctor for $1400 who used it to mow his one acre property and was the original owner. I'm getting a sulky for it soon to discharge some fields.

    That picture with the snow was actually about 25 days ago theres none now, it was the only close up I had.

    And as for Walkers, I've also used Dixie choppers, grasshopper, exmark navigators and ummmmmmmm.....john deere rider but that dont really count soooo ya thats it. And out of those the only one I'd ever invest in is Walker, nicest bagging cut money can buy, I will say the Dixie is fun though if you have big fields. And the Navigator was pretty bad a$$ too but the belt used to come off every other day, and thats a pain.

    Because they are amazing:) No, seriously, they can't be beat if you are bagging on a regular basis, and the cut is second to none.

    Your gonna want to back the Walker onto the trailer so the wind doesn't mess up the flap thingy on the GHS.
