    Don't give me too much grief, fellas... I know my stripes ain't straight. I'm brand new to mowing with a good machine and it humbles me how poor my skills are. That's fine, though, just gives me lots of room to improve. I wanted to post this, so I when I get good I can come back and see where I started.

    I picked up my used Walker a couple of weeks ago. It's an early 90s MS 42 w/ the 11 HP Briggs. Not a whole lot of power, but it's in good condition and it cuts well so I'm happy.

    The Gold Pro is just jealous that he doesn't have a Walker and his Exmarks don't stripe nearly as well as Walkers.

    I am sorry, but i have to speak up here. I told myself i would never get in one of these walker debates, but if you think that the cut quality in that second pic looks good then you are smoking something. If that is what you walker guys think looks good you can keep them. Those tire tracks look awful.

    No offense to the OP your lines aren't to bad i am only speaking of the tire tracks and how uneven it all is. Nothing again you yourself I just don't see the greatness in the mower.
