    At what they DO for YOU!

    They would NOT be efficient on MY properties however. They are just too slow for production mowing. They are also just too darn expensive if all you want is a powerful side discharge machine.

    I do agree that if I had smaller properties that needed bagging, the Walker is the KING!

    But who the heck wants those kind of properties? :eek:

    Oh I'm not knocking Walker at all, I think they look like magnificent machines, I was just puzzled at the post. Why was it made?

    i agree with you currier. although i dont have several, the ones
    that i do have i am glad to have and i welcome more. especially
    considering the way the commercial market is around here.
    the walker has it's uses the same as mid mounts.

    Walker mowers are great and esp. for small properties. But there is no best .There are way too many others to say that. But I do agree walker has a great machine

    There have been some stupid threads lately. This isn't the top, but it ranks way up there. Started only to start an argument. :rolleyes:

    Where I live just about everyone owns a Walker. Just about all of my customers require bagging and like their lawn to look nice. They are nice and compact so they will fit on the smaller yards, but they are slow so they aren't all that practical on the wide open areas where you want to use side discharge and go fast. I wish that I had a Mid-mount to go along with my Walker so I would have the best of both worlds.
