    It had poured rain for at least 4 hours the night before, These are pictures of a 3 acre farmhouse we maintain pays $350.00 per cutting customer wants it manicured. I use to Mulch this yard wit h2 Scag tiger cubs & 48" velocity decks. The Scags could not have mulched this account on this wet morning, we would have been a day behind. With the Walker we were still able to maintain a manicured cut on a wet yard. Also we are able to dump on site, as you can see from the pictures the Walker did have some clumping under the deck, but I left it to document that it still was able to outperform our Scags hands down. Also the GHS screen was totally clogged with wet grass, and the GHS blower still was able to create some serious vacuum,and their was no blower clogging this is with the base model MT20; we are excited to be purchasing a second Walker this fall with some of our new profits the current Walker has generated.

    You should get the bigger screen, i beleive they are 3/4 instead of 1/4.. Not too sure on that but it does help on those wet mornings or for this kind of job. It makes a world of a difference! It should be in your manual witht he part number, its only like 70 or 90 bucks, but it does help.

    Yeah the bigger screen helps alot and you dont even have to take it out to clean it, but its not good for use during cleanups and dry conditions. Also the reason you dont clog is because your using a 42" deck and not as much grass in being processed. All my decks are 48" and i think everyone elses are too around here in Maine, but o well, whatever works for you. Also how much time do you use taking all these pictures during a job, my customers would be pissed if they saw me not working, they'd say hey I'm not paying you $$ to take pictures and stand around and I totally agree with them!
