    Has anybody field tested or own the new 52 inch ghs walker deck? Looking for your opinion.

    I did last fall--on a 20 with big blower--works fine--trims better--leaves good cut---will be buying one as I shuffle equip around in the spring..

    Interesting fact about the 52" GHS deck - this is the only deck in the Walker line in which the blades rotate outward, as opposed to inward as with the rest of the GHS decks.

    I think you will get less clogging and a better cut.You dont have alot of grass down the middle, instead its cut in half and sent down the sides.i think it works better on the wider GHS. I would hope they would try it out on a 60"GHS

    It's just something about the 52" GHS deck that due to the size and the baffling, that Walker found that this arrangement will produce a really good cut with the blades turning outward. Haven't used one, that's what was told to me by the Walker distributor.

    The larger the deck the more grass you are processing. things change:)

    Any idea how much one costs? Do the blades mount the same? Anybody else used one that can talk about it? Do they have heavy duty gear boxes?

    Thanks
