    Brand new 2008 Walker 26 Kohler EFI 48inch deck, 9.5 hopper, bigger blower, cast iron housings on gear box, low profile tires, dual tail wheels deck height adjustment. This thing rules I mowed my yard which is only about a year old and very neglected. Pics to follow Also I mowed in the rain and it bagged everything no problem.

    That would be the one I buy new when my 2000 26EFI goes out. But I think I have some time left as she is a strong runner. I would stay with a 42 deck as some backyards have narrow gates. That is a nice rig Drew. How many scheckles did it set you back?

    Walker has a huge loyal fan base for obvious reasons. Wish you had some better quality turf to show it off but it is good you can cut grass in the rain which looks like I'm going to be doing if I get anything done.

    If this is your first walker, make sure that you never run out of gas. Only because it will take some time to get the gas back into the fuel lines.

    soon as u can afford it get the electric dump option (not the high lift!)--well worth it in the long haul!
