    I run a MT-42 side discharge.25Kohler Command . It dose a great job and gets through all but one of my gates. 2000 hrs on it and the amp meter died. Thats all thats gone wrong so far. It seems like a quality built machine. <p>----------<br>Yesteryear L/S<br>Hollywood Fla

    I have had a 48&quot; GHS,20HP unit for 3 years. What would you like to know?I just bought a 62&quot; deck for it along with JRCO Hooker aeriator and tine rake.

    I've recently bought an MT26 with 48&quot; GHS deck. The 26hp efi works real well.Plenty of<br>power.Seem to be solidly built.The efi system<br>on the motor has halved our mower fuel usage.<p>Karl<br>

    Also just bought a MTGHS 26 EFI , 42&quot; deck and the no-catch deflector. I put the speed up kit on it and it is quick. The dethatcher is a great option for the spring. In the fall the thing eats leaves also. I'll always own a Walker.

    Mow Ed,<br> I would have thought that 26hp to<br>run a 42&quot; deck might be overkill.It's almost<br>overpowered with the 48&quot; deck. You're right<br>about the speed up pulley,it makes a huge difference.<p>Karl<br>

    Karl,<br>At this point the 26 is overkill but in my plans it is what I need.<br>I'm looking to branch out into small to medium commercials next season and I am planning on buying a 54&quot; or 62&quot; sider. I also was inspired by my response for Power brooming so I want to have the power available.<br>I chose the bigger engine (25hp old Walker) for doing some of the big hills I have. The 26 is much more powerful and the EFI is great. I still use my Toro for the wet days and really steep areas but like I said - I will always own a Walker. Good Luck.<br>
