    Does anybody have the new walker that dumps at about 5 or 6 feet so you can dump in the bed of the truck. I though that was a pretty sweet idea.

    Its not really new. Its been around for a few years. and its just an attachment made for them. I think maybe WAlker makes them, maybe another company. I've seen one of em and it worked pretty good. When the catcher is in the down position it sits about 6 -8 inches higher then stock so you have to be careful of low branches and it'll make the walkers even harder to maneuver on the side of a hill. but hey, if you mow nothing but wide open flat land with no trees itd be great.

    Oh, ok. I just saw it for the first time yesterday. I thought it was a good idea. I know some people love the walkers but had trouble with finding a way to dump them.

    Walker makes one now. The catcher is only 3 inches higher than stock and it uses 2 hydraulic cylinders. One for lift and one for dump so it can be dumped in any position.

    All-Seasons makes the other style.

    If it's a wide open area, I hope he's not using a Walker.

    i was just going to say if ur in a wide open area why are u using a walker. i dont really even see the point of a walker this will proble start some contervesy but i also have never tryed one so. with the speed that is so much slower than regular zrtand with a regullar zrt u can still bag with an atacment and u get more productivity fron a zrt wouldent it make more sence to get a zrt
