    It's my first year with the walker and since its getting to be fall cleanup time I was wondering what are some good tips on picking up the leaves. One guy told me that it works best if you put the mowing deck at around 3'' in the front and 2.5" in the back, is this true? What deck height is the best and also how many passes does it normally take to get the grass perfectly clear. Thanks

    I set my rear height to waht the grass is normally cut at, and the front a 4". One pass for me, at 3-4 mph or so. There are times where you have to slow down, but it sure beats any other way of picking up leaves!
