While the Walker may be slower to a "midmount" speed demon, the Walker slower pace does not require a double cut, also the front mounted deck & ability to trim with both sides of the deck or under fences or trees, shrubs etc makes the Walker faster in the end. It's compact design; height, width, lower operator position makes it possible to enter & exit a 42" gate with the smaller GHS decks or with an optional wide area SD deck can manage large acre accounts. The finger tip persion control & Forward speed (cruise control) reduces operator fatigue no "pushing" your arms forward like other ZTR's. The only negative, I waited 7 years to purchase a WALKER MT, and their not a heavy rough cut mower; however you can rough cut if your careful
