    I have two friends that have walkers one with the 42" and the other with a new 48" They both absolutely love them.
    My only concern is if this is the only machine you had.. what do you do when its wet? Seems as though the machine is pretty heavy and then that 3rd wheel would make its own track.

    Sucks everthing up real good though.

    Thanks for the info. Speaking of wet conditions we have not seen a drop of rain in a month here in Arkansas. I have some 21" mowers to go along with the walker I will be buying.

    I have a 42 with 16hp and 48 with 25hp walker
    if you are just going to mow one or two yards you be ok.
    The 25hp is a lot better than the 16hp but I had to put motors in both mowers around 600 hours.
    Great in leaves, if you can keep them running, but i have no dealer support at all. would I buy walker again NO, but you might have better luck:)
