    Who has a mower with the deck in front? What is the advantage of this?

    Lot of guys love them. Just personal preference. They ride good, easy blade changes, trim under pines, and fences better, lots of attachments, etc. but are bulky, take up more trailer space even with the deck raised and the back end can swing into objects until you get used to using one. The mid-mount is more popular by far but that doesn't mean it's better.

    Sorry i did after 6 walkers but went non catching and comercial should have explained better.
    Walkers leave a lovely finish and ok to operate.
    Times i spent weekends in shed though no way no go. Diff aplication for job mowers. Not knocking Walkers but hee.
    Ever pulled them hydros out in em, dam marbles. One mill out it goes backwards.
