    I know a guy that has a 07 dd ferris walk John and i did run it for a while out in a parking lot at dealer , for me i was used to pistol grip so it was different to run but i think after running it a couple of hrs one could get used to it . The guy that ownes it has ran scag walks for years but he just loves this new machine and says the cut is as good if not better than scag as far as anyone buying new walks like i did i must be in the minority because my dealer says he sold one walk last year and from what iam hearing, sales of walks are down across the board on all brands

    I was wondering the same thing. i'm in the market for a new walk behind and would like to go with Ferris. I like the older models, dependable and built like tanks. The dealer told me that they do not make a bagger for the new style, i'm not sure if he's correct or not but if he is that's going to be my deciding factor.

    Boycea, Check out Accelerator I'm sure they make a catcher to fit the new style walks.

    Chuck i think walk sales are down because of the smaller riders with a smaller price.If the people using theses riders only knew what damage there causing, they would go back to the walks.

    Yes John is was the adjustable deck and i agree about using the walks some of these places people try to take a rider is "unbeleiveable" there will always be a place in my route for a walk
