    i checked with my dealer. i was told that your dealer must have had it on the "spring" order which dealers placed 6 months ago. my dealer doesn't stock any WB at all so he would not have pre-ordered one.

    supposedly my dealer couldn't even order until today. so at least my 36 got ordered today but of course they are backlogged. the estimated ship date is April 20th. :(

    Looks like that one is all set up for the new emissions standards. I got in an order of mowers and 1 of the 4 are set up with the new emissions bs. The other 3 are pre emissions still. Im not excited for the extra headaches.

    yep. First thing I noticed. It has a evaporation tank under the control handles.

    man that thing looks good. i cannot wait to get mine.

    yeah i was not too thrilled about the new epa crap on the gas tanks. instead of outside venting they have to vent back into the carb and burn off. that is the only thing they changed on the 252 for 2011. i kinda wish i had just gotten a 2010 252 for less headache. but i love it anyway lol

    moved the deck scalp wheels up to the top slot today. i guess in Wisconsin they got some tall grass. the mower shipped with them in the bottom bracket. us folks down here we like our centipede cut low.

    no complaints on the mower. she leaves everything looking like carpet. :)
    i tore through some grass at full speed the other day and the cut looked just as good.

    The only issue I have with the new Pro walk 36 is being very light in the front. I am going to put counterweights on it. The controls seem a bit touchy but they should smooth out after a while.The cut is great.

    i was wondering if that was going to be an issue since i want the 36 for slopes and gated back yards. i hope it can hold a hill side to side. did you get a sulky? i ordered some jungle wheels for mine.

    I don't run veilke on my 36.I found out with my last one it was more in the way in tight spots.I have not mowed it it enough to see how it will hold on hills. My last one wouldn't stick to anything that had a incline to it.
