Just when I thought I decided what ZTR mower I was going to buy, I went to my local Honda dealer to get a part for my HRC 216, & there was a Walker on the show room floor. I never considered them because first of all without seeing one up close I thought they were just a bit to weird, & second, we didn't have a dealer here ( well until now). Like I said, I alway's dismissed them because they are so different from the norm but the more I learned about them, the more interested I became. Couple things I loved about it was the ability to get at the deck with ease, & the fact that they are interchangable to any number of deck sizes. The highlift dump is pretty cool too. I have heard that they are slower, but mowing time is faster? I'd love to here from you owners out there.
