Wow that amazing that your machine has lasted so long and worked so hard! Great to hear though. Makes me appreciate my Walker 26hp EFI even more myself. I have been a huge Toro fan for quite a few years now and they're new 8000 series bagger has me intrigued. Check it out: http://www.lljohnson.com/GPE/Toro_Z8000.pdf I talked with my Toro dealer earlier today and they're sending me some more info on the machine, as well as a price quote, and I plan to set up a demo for this spring as well. At that point I may be selling my Walker... we shall see. Ive always heard that the Walkers are best for their year around versatility, but I don't have any use for mine other then mowing. At least not at this point. And decks cost too much to justify getting a couple for a single machine. Although I love how well the machine bags, how smoothly it operates, and how serviceable it is. But its a machine that doesn't seem as rough and tough as my Toros. I have had some trouble with it bagging when the ground is really wet, but that's about all the trouble I've had with it. The exmark navigator is supposed to be the better bagger, with the mulching baffles built in and a deeper deck design. But there aren't as many decks or other attachments. Plus I don't really want to turn over to Exmark if I don't have too.
