    On page 19 of the latest Walker Talk magazine I see some great new products for the Walker mowers.

    They are offering "Dump Boxes" for the 9.5 bushel catcher. They are two polyethylene boxes that slide inside the 9.5 bushel catcher essentially splitting the load into the two separate boxes. Those of you who are solo operators or have two Walkers and only 2 men to a crew will benefit. When working solo, it's rather difficult to dump a full 9.5 bushel catcher into the "Walker bags" without spilling it all over the ground, or tearing the bag up. The dump boxes will make this operation easier and reduce risk of injury. BRAVO!

    Also offered is a new single lever deck height adjuster for the GHS decks. It eliminates the 4 pins and the operator can raise and lower deck height from the seat. BRAVO again!

    Check it out.

    It's about time! :eek: I was just trying to figure out why they haven't had one for all these years.

    You didn't mention the most exciting new walker product the new dual tail wheels. No more three wheeled stripes. Us walker owners have been complaining for years about that single tail wheel. The article does say that you won't be able to get one till fall however...

    I like the single tailwheel. It stay's tucked out of the way.

    You are talking about the Grasshopper style tail wheels as opposed to the dual tail wheels that are currently out there. I have had complaints from customers about the single fat wheel. As you turn it pivots where the dual set counter rotates causing less turf tear in tight spots.
    I'd have to see the striping results with this new set up to make a decision. I do like to see innovation and Walker always listens to their customers. The deck height thing is a major improvment. I know that holds a lot of people back.
