    Most of the time, I dump the grass or leaves on the street curb and suck them up with a leaf vac. If I am not driving my leaf vac truck, I will usually just dump the grass on a tarp and through the tarp up in the bed of the truck. I normally don't collect grass during the regular mowing season. I put on my 52" discharge deck and go.

    Lay a large heavy duty garbage pail on the ground and scoop the grass in, toss it into the truck, dump, repeat.

    All depends on how much you have too !

    Walker also makes plastic inserts that you set inside the hopper for " easier " dumping. Haven't used them so I can't comment - maybe someone else could.

    I dont bag, but you may have seen their new "truck dumper" system under "whats new" www.walkermowers.com , that may be nice for some.

    I did a little creative measuring and designed my own front gate system. Its hinged and folds right down to my bumper. I don't bag much anymore but on big jobs this works great. Go to this link.

    I dont have a walker mower, i think they do a great job. My nearest dealer is about a hour and a half away. I keep thinking about them. Maybe in the future.

    Use the metal coal shovels. Dump on the ground and scoop it up with the shovles. Quickest way I have found.
