    I'm thinking about getting a new Walker to replace my 16hp model. Just looking for some opinions. What engine do you guys like, gas or diesel? What options do you love or can't live without? Any favorite implements?

    My 20hp mt with 48"ghs has done very well for me. My next one will be 25hp with 48"ghs and 9.5b catcher plus a 52" sdd with mulch kit, light kit, speed-up kit, and comfort seat.

    I have the 26hp EFI and love it! Use the 48"GHS in the spring and fall for collecting (scalping, leaf removals & dethatching). Then I put on the 52" SD deck for the summer. Man, that deck is a beast.

    Love my 20hp with the 48 inch deck, perfect for the properties around here. I was at Yerxas today they had a couple, I'd go demo a few. If you're interested in getting a used unit there is a guy around here that sells quite a few, PM me if you want his info.

    Mine has the 25, and I don't think you'd want anything smaller to run a 48 ghs or 52 sd. Speed up and suspension are must haves.
    I don't mow in the dark, so no lites.
