    Give it time to evolve. Did you ever see the pics of the early Walkers?<br>My question is - If you put the GHS deck on can you collect the clippings in a backpack that you wear?

    Amen on the evolution reply, this unit looks like something one would purchase at a farm supply store. Walker needs to do some more homework on walkbehinds before they launch production on this thing. MHO, Lynn

    it looks kinda like a gravely, i'm guesing it has a horizontal shaft engine. where are the thumb locks for the handles? i think the tail wheel would make it harder to pull it back, cause most of the time when i pull my walkbehind back at a turn, i lift the front off a little. the handles do look weak, and it I don't see an easy place to adjust the belt tension

    I got to try one out today.<br>Very different! Hydro with chain drive.<br>If you go backwards too quickly the drive unit rises up in the air. Drive unit and deck pivot, similar to the riders.<br>The third wheel? I kept stepping on it as I walked.<br>I'll add more later...got to go<br>
