    how are most of you walker people hauling the grass clippings. I
    love my walkers but I am looking for a better way to deal with clipping.

    Do you pull a trailer with it or do you carry walkers with another truck and trailer

    Same here 60/40 split for haul away and dump on site.

    Jeff, one truck trailer combo unless we are doing leaves, then one truck trailer and debris on another truck.

    I have posted before about walker but since this is just for walkers I thought I would check it out. I'm looking to buy a walker to this year I currently have a gravely 48" but looking for a walker on my nicer yards and for leaf cleanup. I don't have a lot of money to spend and I'm wanting to pay cash and not buy new for now. I have a buddy that has a 1996 with the 16hp motor. I have heard if it's the single cylinder it's ok but stay away from the twin cylinder. With the clientele I have now I won't be putting more than about 100-125 a year and that's high. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    bottom of page one :drinkup:


    I'd go with the 20hp Kohler, it should be perfect for what you need it for, the 16 just seemed gutless when I tried one JMHO.
