I have seen a few threads on here about this machine, but was wanting to get everyone's opinion on this machine as of today. I really like the fact that it has a larger discharge chute and you are able to shut the chute down to mulch. These are the only factors in my choice of one of these over a Walker. Other than that they seem pretty equal. I need something to bag, but when it slows down I like the fact I can mulch also.
