On Friday I was able to pick up a Walker 26hp EFI 48" GHS mower from a local shop and I was allowed to use it all weekend and I just got home from dropping it off now. All I can say is that it is an AWESOME MOWER! It was a huge timesaver and allowed me to pick up some additional leaf cleanups. Here are some Pro's and Con's that I saw Pro's: -Performed flawlessly on wet/dry leaves and tall grass -Very easy operation -Hopper packs well -Excellent Cut -Great striping abilities -Easy dumping of hopper -Easy deck height adjustment -Flip up deck for easy cleaning/unclogging -Very powerful, never boged down once -Solidly built -Great features and available options * Warning attracts many neighbors * Con's: -Loud when running ful throttle -Occasionally it gets clogged under deck when going to fast -Leaves lots of tire marks even on 3pt turns Other than those couple Con's I was very impressed by it's performance. I could definitely see myself purchasing one in the next 2 years. Overall I give it a 9.5. Now I can trully see why those who have them brag about them so much.
