    Has anyone experience with a Walker MB with the 56" side discharge deck? How well does the deck cut and does the 18 hp Brigs or Kohlar have the power to run it?

    I have a mc with a 18 hp kohler and it does just fine with a 56" side dicharge deck. The cut is great BUT it doesn't throw the clippings very far and they don't get chopped up much.

    I have one with 1600 hrs. It will handle that deck fine. Like was mentioned it will just lay the clipping out there. There are no baffles to help chop the clippings up finer. I really like mine.

    If grass is a little long how does it do? How far will it throw the clippings? Does it leave things looking a little messy?
