After a hectic cutting season last year and quality advice from all of you, I finally made a purchase. I bought a Walker 42" MT w/ 9.5 bushel bagger. I couldn't believe how easy it was to drive while not hurting the turf. Simply awesome. I demoed great danes, gravely 34z, fastrak and the exmark ct,ht. I can't believe the wealth of knowledge on this site. I'm a one man show and I needed something that would bag perfectly and leave a great cut. Speed wasn't my main issue, but this sure beats walking. Bring on the sun , warm weather and fertilizer, I'm ready! Oh yeah, we just found out my wife is pregnant so I figured I could make the most money with this machine. Thanks to all.
