    I christened the Walker this morning on a rough commercial job. There wasn't a lot of grass to cut... just mostly weeds. It cuts & chops them up nice and fine, even side throwing.

    Still haven't mastered the steering. Really have to concentrate on not pushing the left hand levers forward to go forwards. Also bumped the ass end into something a few times.

    I miss being able to lift the deck a bit to go over uneven ground without scalping. They tell me the deck floats really well, but I have my doubts.

    Hi edbeek
    I will be interested in how you go with the walker. I am a little interested in a side discharge model. The price really puts me off.
    So do walkers not have a easy deck lift for going over tree roots etc?
    Regards

    Do Walker side discharge decks cut down to one inch?
    Cheers

    Hi hjl, The book says the min with my deck is 1.5". I just measured mine and it's about 30mm at the front on a concrete floor.. Theoretically you could replace the washers with thinner ones and get close to 25mm. I cut one on the weekend @ 36mm and that's as short as I'd want to cut any of my lawns.

    No deck lift on the MB. There is a single lever height adjuster available for $6-700, but I don't know if you can use it on-the-go to clear obstacles.
