    Hello all!

    I recently took off the blades to a Walker GHS machine to have them sharpened. I know the blades on walker mowers spin in opposite directions on GHS equipped units, unfortunatally I did not mark down which blade rotates in which direction!:hammerhead:

    Does anyone know the rotation of the left and right blades on a Walker GHS?

    sitting on the machine, the left blade goes clockwise and the right goes counterclockwise.

    ghs walkers have rear discharge decks both blades force grass down the center into a blower that fills the rear hopper.

    A great big sucking blower creates a little pull on the grass coming out through the 10" pipe running up to the deck outlet which is dead center at the rear.
