    Here in sunny SC we have a lot of pine trees. How well does the walker collect all that straw. With my present mower I have to rake up small areas (that have heavy straw) or they it cloge up my shoot. I was hoping this would not be a problem with the Walker.

    Anyone have any experience with the Walker and pine straw?

    They do a good job on straw as long as it is bone dry. Raising the front of the deck a little higher than the rear helps also.

    leaves, pine needles, newspapers, tennis balls... they suck them all up.

    You forgot pine cones, small sticks, and aluminium cans.
