    well i decided that i've had enough with bagging with a little clip on bager on my stander, Don't get my wrong, i deffintaly love the Stander concept and hope to have annother one one day soon, just it will be a 36 with the biggest motor they can fit on it.

    My stander as a 17hp 48 fixed deck with 310hrs on it at the time of the trade in, and i picked up a bone stock 23hp Walker with the dump bins (which I'm not super impressed with)

    The Bin's should hold the full capacity of the mower, there molded to fit side by side and tight inside.

    And I got annother thread about "overgrown Much?" check out the befor pictures, and most of that was all cut with my scag, i used the walker just to suck up some of the extra long grass

    yes this is my first Walker, and there are deffinatly alot of pro's, i'm just hoping more than con's lol. My dealer is E and R in the falls, there also the Wright dealer, toro, cub cadet, etc.

    my complains so far after 8.5 houres on the machine is the slightly slower drive speed, but for that properrties that it matters i should realy invest in a good 60inch mid mount mower, and the 23hp machine is a pig on fuel compaired to the 17hp kawi that was on my stander, but i deffinatly love the extra power. I maybe should have looked at a fuel injected machine but i'm hoping to only have this machine as a 48 for annother year or so, and then order a 31hp machine with the fancy suspention seat and a high dump kit, but with the narrow tires and a 36 inch deck, and then swap decks and drive tires, so this will become a 36 and the new machine will be a 48? if that makes any sence
