    Does anyone have any experience with the power high dump kit for Walker?
    How much should it cost to have added onto my existing Walker MTD?

    i dont know what the cost of having one put on is but they are worth it (around 2000ish i think, but dont hold me too it) If you have a dump truck to pull your rig with this is the only way to bag. The company i used to work for had three walkers with lifts, and when we used the dump truck about a minute or less to empty it, no pitch forks or shovels needed!!!!!!

    They only work on model T or D and cost $3,000
    but work great.

    my dealer told me he sells them for $2500 but that might just be in my area.

    I heard they cause the mowers to handle worse on hills. Is that true?

    i didnt know any walker handled good on a hill, but i could see how it could make it worse. I have never ran a walker without the lift on it so i couldnt tell you if it does.

    We run 3 walker riders. they do alright on hills. I was looking into a walker walk behind for this season. Has anybody heard if they are any better for hill work?

    Never have even seen a walker walk behind so i couldnt say, however i have run turf tracers and know they perform wonderfully on slopes/hills.
