I met Dean Walker at the GIE show in Charlotte NC Saturday. I have had trouble with the 26 EFI Kohler motor on my Walker and the dealer was no help. Well Mr Walker did not I repeat did not try to brush it off in stead he said they would get it fixed. I have met allot of heads of companies in my 50 years and this is the real thing. Very nice and does not look down on people. With all the trouble I have had with my motor and the dealer I would buy another Walker tomorrow I believe the mower is a great machine and the man who runs the company even greater. If any of you get a Chance to meet Mr Walker by all means do so. Just try and meet Mr Toro, Jhon Deere or Mr Scag. When I left the show he shook my hand and said they would fix my machine and was sorry I had problems and I belive they will. I will let every one know what happens. OK I am off my soap box now.
