    I was talking to my dealer today about the tail locks for Walkers. I asked him if they were easy to put on...he said they take 6 hours of labor if you go through them to have it put on. I couldn't believe it...i can put a new motor in my truck in that time! The guy i was speaking to was a salesman...so im not sure how good his word is. Does anyone have any experience with the installation of these tail locks???...does 6 hours sound right?

    Who is your dealer, MB Tractor & Equ. in Plaistow, NH.? Call G.O.Distributors,Inc. in Main, 800-525-8148. They handle Walker and are very helpful, also offer overnight shipping.

    When I talked to my dealer he told me it would take less than one hour. Maybe your salesman was looking for a nice commision check LOL:D

    Would you have a walker without a tail lock now? Or is it an option you wouldn't want to be without?
