Anyone used the Walker attachments?

    Just wondering who has used the attatchments, and if they would be worth buying.

    This is a bery broad question. There are many attachments available for the Walker. I have the dethatcher and it works well for cleaning up the lawn after dethatching, scalping or just picking up leaves.

    I have the dethatcher:D :D :D. Love it and a huge time (and back) saver and the Mill Creek core aerator:) :) :) . Like it allot--saves a ton of walking and aerates much faster on an open property and about 1/3 the price of a walk behind unit.

    I had the millcreek. It just did not work for my application. I let another LCO use it to see if he could have any luck. It did not work for him either. It just didn't seem to pull any plugs. We tried all the weights on the aerator and weight in the grass dump but it just did not work. (this was with new tines)

    Dethatcher is excellent and a very big $$$$$$ maker for me. I built my own spray setup off the 42 deck and frame.

    I have not used any other attachments but love the idea of changing decks or attctchments relatively fast. I have a 52 and a 52 deck.

    I know a guy who has a larger operation and his guys love the snowblower option.

    I have 2 40 lb. weights on the front and about 100lbs. in the hopper to keep the tailwheel planted. I get an average 2 inch plug in our mostly clay soil (when it is moist). Others more, some hard dry ones less.
