    Has anyone had personal experience with the afore mentioned set-up? I know that Walker advises that the 52" deck should be the maximum size for the Model C 16HP(V-twin) Walker. I wanted to know if this deck really taxes the motor or other components of the mower? What type of grass were you cutting? ....etc???

    Many Thanks!

    I am going to apoligize first because I don't have this exact set-up and judging by the lack of responses I don't think many do.

    My setup is a 26EFI with the 52SD as well as a 42GHS. Very good power in all situations.
    I am sure the 16 will spin it but it may be questionable if you get into heavy wet stuff. Walker has D/C'd the 16's for the 18HP Kohler which they say will run a 56"deck.

    Personally, I would contact a dealer of MFG rep and see if you can use a demo deck for a week or so in the spring. It is a very heavy duty deck with double blades and it cuts grass like crazy. That would be the best advice I could give you short of getting a 26EFI.
    Good Luck
