    Does anybody have the extended lifter on the walker that lifts up the hopper to your bed of the truck?. looking at getting a walker and adding this on. wondering how sturdy this piece is.

    I haven't seen them, but I was talking with the eXmark dealer the other day about the new navigator. He said until eXmark comes out with their own lift system, he was going to purchase a few of the Walker units to put on the Navigator. He said he was inpressed and were a very good system.

    I used one this spring while mine was being repaired. The system worked very well. I load my debris with a loader so I don't have much use for it but it is a very cool option. My understanding is that it is much cheaper to order the lift on a new machine instead of adding it later.

    What size of loader do you use (how many hp) and do you suck it right out of the hopper or dump it first. I am looking to a dump bed insert or add a hoist to my current truck bed. I have a 16hp Lesco loader already that I use on my grain truck for spring scalpings and fall cleanups.
