    Anyone know the best place to get Plastic bags that I can fit around the GHS on my walker mowers? I just want to be able to dump the clippings/leaves into the bag, and go.... any ideas? Thanks in advance...

    I had Toro outfront (built like the Walker)and what I did although not perfect was to cut the top 1/2 off two 90 gallon plastic garbage cans.Next i bolted the 2 cans together side by side.
    Then place 2 leaf bags ,one in each can,open up your hopper and tilt it back so the grass now dumps into the open bags.Pull out the full bags,tie them off and off you go.

    I saw somthng in walker talk magazine that they have or will have these dump bins that slide into the hopper, fill em as you mow and then when full you slide the two things out and dump into truck etc....

    At the GIE in St.Louis someone had it. It looked like two rubbermaid totes. They fit side by side in the ghs. kane

    I've never used plastic bags and it always seemed like more work than other ways. Generally, with the Walker, I'd lay out a tarp and just dump out on it, and then later bundle up the tarp and dump the load into the truck. Working alone I'd try dumping into a rubbermaid, but with spill-over falling on the tarp. So... why use bags, unless if you're going to leave the lawn clippings with your clients?

    The bags I have are for the smaller hopper. I have the bigger hopper on my walker and bough the bags by mistake. If you fill a bag up with the big hopper you can not pick it up. Some friends of mine have the hydro lift on a 9.5 tank and fill 2 bags from one tank.
