    No way is this machine even remotely close to a walker.
    The Cushman company morphed into several different names, the last of which is Ezgo-Textron.
    Cushman has been a supplier of estate and commercial grounds maintenance equipment since the late fifties.
    The machine pictured is just an out front rotary mower with a bagger, no blower just the lift from the blades filling the vault. Were never popular because they clogged all of the time.

    Nothing close to a walker, and poorly designed IMO. Imagine how much dust and grass clippings you'd be eating if the pipe didn't clog. I like the high lift though-definitely ahead of their time.

    The lift is cool but it sure is an ugly cuss.

    I worked at a resort that had Cushman like that. With the collection system they would mow the commons area with it. Never spent any time running it though.

    I think it looks more like Hustlers industrial grade mower, I think it is called a 4600?
