    These are pictures of one of my accounts in Historic Gentral gardens in Memphis, I was running Scag in early 07, and have since switched to Walker, and this account is a direct gain from the Walkers manicured finish cut. I have another client across the street, and this guy fired his other LCO who was mulching to hire us?

    Nice pics but IMO a walker leaves an OOGLY stripe. Not to mention bagging of grass is a practice which is not terrible healthy for the lawn.

    dual tail wheel kit reduces the tight turing radius & clearance, dual tail wheels help distribute the weight of the optional: MD diesel, power-dump & hi-dump. I have the dual tail wheel kit on our John Deere F-680 love it for hills & wide areas. I have had not one complaint from customers about tail wheel marks? this is a LCO debate. Where splitting hairs on this debate

    Yep i dont think the customers care about it the cut is too good but the stripe is a trademark of the walker, I always know if that lawn has bin mowed by a walker.
