• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

I have a Walker with GHS 48" but want to mulch. Would you put a mulching deck on the Walker or buy an Exmark? Walker getting tired. Want the best look after the cut.

plan to keep the walker for spring clean up, long grass and fall clean up. wanted to know more about mulch deck abilty verses the exmarks.
 
Keep the Walker. If You're thinking about gitting another mower anyway get a Scag with the deck that you can mulch side discharge or bag all in one.Depends on dealer location. I don't have one but the adds make it sound good. I hope to have one before I quit one day.

That Scag Cougar is a rip off. Cost's $10,500 + tax and it has the dreaded 25hp Kohler. I would either get the 42" Walker mulching deck or the 52" deck with the mulching kit. If your mower is dying put a new engine in it this winter. The 52" and 42" deck are supposed to mulch very good according to my distributer. A thing to think about is the 42" will float better and only cost about $1,400 or so. The 52" is a heavier deck and costs $2,300 or so with the mucl kit. I would not bother buy a Lazer unless you want to set the Lazer up to mulch and keep the Walker for strictly bagging.

Just my .02 Hope it helps. If you have any questions e-mail me.

I suggest keeping the Walker & having repairs done on frame section & motor this winter & if needed, purchase new deck for next year with mulching kit. That keeps the dependability of the mower & you still have a beautiful cut with the mower, but not at the NEW MOWER cost.
