    Yeh, I mean I love them to death but i was going to see if anyone else used them or liked them also. Also I know that we are going into fall and leaves are starting to fall and as far as i am concerened, Walker makes the best bagging system.

    They are the best there is if you mow <1/2 acre heavily landscaped lawns.

    Me personally, steer clear of such accounts.

    this is where the money is here.land is so valuable most lots are well under an acre.there are very few large lots that use a lawncare service.i will always have walker type mowers,z's are great on wide open spaces but the Walker kicks but on tight property's.

    I'm right there with Ron. I live in Montgomery,Al and down here we have bermuda grass. It looks like crap when you discharge it and has to be well taken care of to be mulched so thats why the walker is so popular down in the south. The Walker is a "Man" of a Mower in many prospectives. It might not be the fastest, but it sure does a great job.

    I don't use Walkers just for the reason that they won't work for me. I've seen them work before. At the college I'm going to, they use them and they work great as far as bagging goes. About 5 or 6 of the yards I do are fairly big properties with lots and lots of bahia. I'd like to see a Walker take care of that lol.
