    If anybody has one how do you like it. how is it in the wet stuff and do you have it on the new Mb, the 18hp one.
    Thanks John

    I've got one and it works fine in the wet grass (much better than the 48" GHS). I really don't know much about the 18hp, I've only run the deck on my MT25. I seem to remember that you don't like Walkers very much.:p Are you looking at the 18hp for smaller stuff?

    That new MB is a lite weight out front mower. i do believe that the gear drive decks take less power to run, i hoping walker will come out with at least a 20to 23 hp one and make a power broom for it.

    I do want to demo one.

    I have the 56 inch deck. Does good in wet stuff but it will clog quite a bit. it is not a deep deck. I use it on a 26 efi.
