    Wow!Looks like a real neat machine!They will have to beef up the handel bars.And do a few things here and there to get it really rocking but i'm shure that it will have some mods done before it hits the market.That thing has neat little tail wheels!Hey if it can accept walker decks do you think it would accept a snow thrower?????That would be cool!How does it handel?What hp and model of engine?Look like a large engine for a walkbehind!!!!!I like that!Thanks agian for the pic!Try to get some more!Maby even in action!<p>----------<br>from:Adam<br>AB Lawn Care

    Sounds like a good idea, especially with the interchanging decks. What would make it 100% better is if, like somone mentioned, you can hook up the snowblower or the broom, etc to it!! That would be great! Well I put the picture up on my site too, so the guys who stop by there wil see them. Thanks and keep us updated on the info!<p>Forgot to ask, I never ran a walker, but how long does it take to change out the decks? Is it pretty easy for someone to do alone?<p>One more thing......Now that I looked at the pictures a little better, I like that back wheel idea. I'd imagine that would keep the deck from &quot;jumping&quot; up. Is it on a spring or something?? People might have some problems putting it on their trailers with that wheel (not being able to lift up the deck on the way up) Seems like ot would be a + while mowing though.<p><br>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://communities.msn.com/guidosequipmentpics/&quot;&gt;&quot;Guido&quot;&lt;/a&gt;<br>David M.

    How would you raise the deck up to get over a curb with that wheel in the back?
