    Have you ever heard a customer say, 'Those stripes look terrible?'. I don't think I have.

    Thanks guys for the comments! TriCounty, I don't use a stripe kit on my trim mowers, and the mower is set at a pretty high setting, mowing lawns like these, I'll check when I use it again!

    I had the split tail wheel kit on my walker. The stripes looked less busy with it less bumpy. Ended up removing it do to the lack of tight maneuverablity that it had with dual wheels on the single fork. Also dropped it into flower beds all the time. I missed the preppy look of the third wheel marks that walker leaves behind that didn't bother be as much as I thought. They still look clean with there cut. The mower is so fun to operator compared to a mid mount that I could never get sick of it!

    I completely agree with you about the mower being more fun than a mid mount! Alot of people around here have Walkers. I have always wondered about the maneuverability of the unit with split tail wheels. Are they more trouble than they're worth?

    I wouldn't say the split tail wheel is more trouble than there worth. As Walker states when using it the maneuverability is slightley reduced in tight spaces. I personally enjoyed the original tight footprint that it is know for and missed that. To me look met less than the original design feel of the mower. If Walker wanted the split tail wheel on the mower they would have built all of the GHS models with it as standard equipment. I have kept current with changes to the mower as soon I find out from Walker talk magazine and dealer. In my view irrigardless of third wheel mark nothing comapirs to a Walker mower.
