Whats the widest walk behind made,, current or in the past?
know of a guy with an o-l-d john deere 72 wb
Scag used to make 72" walkbehinds( I used to run them back in the day when i worked for one of the biggest landscape companies in indiana) and i know a guy thats still got a few and uses them on a daily basis.Iam telling you those are some big honking walks
The largest I ever saw were the 72" Scag as mentioned above.
yup, my landlord's employees use one still today
Yea I remember those...I used to have a 61" Bunton BELT DRIVE, w/16hp, that thing would barely pull itself up a hill. Nobody could really handle the machine, b/c you had to be a body builder to muscle it around
locke used to make a 70" triplex reel walk behind.....with an available sulky
I seen a Toro Proline that was a 72" once.
The 72" Scag Hydro's are big but no harder to use than a 36 or a 48--you just have to watch what you are doing! We use them daily for all residential work--virtually bullet proof, cheap to run, no tire marks, and one of the best leaf eating machines you could ever touch! 72's no longer made--too bad...
Anybody have any pics of these monsters of turf in action?
