    One dealer close to me sells them. He doesn't move a lot of them, but says they are good machines. He is also a Walker dealer and sells tons of them.

    Looks cool merlin. Any idea on a ball park price? Also noticed there is only engine option. Used to have a Walker 48" and it was nice, but pretty pricey

    THEY ARE PEICES OF JUNK! I worked with a guy that had 2 of them. First of all the deck is way too heavy, they clogged up like every 5 min. then you have to left that heavy deck, then TRY to keep it up with the stupid pins they put on it. Imo they are too heavy and are not very well built. My buddy has spend over $1500-$2000 on them in one year. Imo they are nothin but junk and I will never buy one.

    It is impossible unless they know of some magical way to empty that hopper while moving. I have jobs where it would take that mower 5 minutes just to get back to the truck to dump.

    Technically a day is 24 hours....so maybe they based it on that....??? :)

    I don't see the problem with 23 acres per day. Use the mulch kit and keep her in production 23 hours per day with an hour or so spent refueling and there you go.

    In the real world, (and especially bagging) NO WAY.

    I have never even seen one of these, but NO ONE bags here. Well except a few guys with battered craftsmans.
