I just wanted to say thanks to all you guys(especially you senior members) You guys have helped me more than you will ever know. The search function on this site is a great tool, especially for newbies like me. Today I ordered my first Walker.....it's the EFI with 48" GHS deck, 9.5 bushel catcher, low profile tires, ect...In other words fully loaded! It set me back a cool $9000 even. Which I don't think is too bad of a price. I have heard nothing but good things about walkers, and today I was talking to my distributor and he said the kohler 26EFI is actually running closer to 30HP!!! Anyways thanks.....and i'm sure you'll be hearing from me!
