    The specs on the New Walker "to be announced in 2007" is 10 mph on an MB with 27 hp, and 60 inch Deck. It will have 22 inch tires (Walkers have 18 inch now). This could be one of the best machines for Hills if the increase in tire size does not play much with the center of gravity. A lot of folks dont realize that a SD walker with a deck size of at least 52 is better on hills than any Z, because most buy Walkers to use with a 48 or less deck (ie, to bag). For those of us in the mountains, or hilly country, this may be the best thing for us next to a WB. Lets hope so, like I said, only the increase in tire size worries me, but it may actually have a wider stance to offset this. Thoughts?

    The MB model is side discharge only, and I read the specs at a dealer. He said Walker is expecting them out "sometime" in 2007.

    The mb is the sd model. is the 60" deck going to be deeper with a faster blade speed?????


    This mower would be great with more hp and a faster cutting deck.

    My dealer said there will be several changes for next year. Got dizzy just listening. I'll wait to see what takes place. Time to get rid of my diesel Walker.
