I was riding by a buisness today and noticed they had some new guys doing the grounds work and they were out trimming some ditches. I looked across the property they had cut and it looked like krap. Stringers and clippings piled up everywhere. So me being the nosy one turned around and pulled into the parking lot to see what kind of mowers they were running. I pulled up to the trailer and low and behold there were two front mounted walkers on the trailers. I was like WHAT??? Walkers are very rare in my area , but what I have read on this site from people bragging about them I would have never beleived this if I hadn't seen it for myself. The guy who cut it before had a Tiger cub and the property always looked good. These guys were discharging instead of using the grass collectors on the backs. The kind of grass and weeds we grow around here combined with the with the height of what we usually cut is not very condusive to bagging. Only thing I could think of in their defense was that their blades might have been dull. Razor sharp blades are a must to get the native krap we cut around here looking good. As many negative comments I have read about Husqvarna on here I will have to say my accounts look smooth as glass compared to what I saw today. I let the flak about Husky roll off my back now because I ride around and look at competitors all the time when I'm working my full time gig and I have nothing to worry about. I have come to the conclusion the flak is hatred for companies with diversified product lines more so than a hatred for the equipments performance. I don't have any hatred toward equipment anybody runs. I have respect for it all and enjoy researching, and reading about all the brands and watching them work. I think a operator and how well he knows how to use his equipment makes a bigger difference than anything.
