Compact Overall Size
From the beginning, the Walker was designed to be compact in width, length and height- this contributes to getting the job done fast by allowing the mower to get into tight spaces, efficiently do the work and make a quick exit with no lost motion. Compact height also provides a low center of gravity resulting in stable operation, even on slopes. The beauty of Walker's compact design is that the same tractor using a 36" deck in tight spaces can also be fitted with a 74" deck to reach up and mow larger areas- a definitive, rare breed in zero-turn mowing.
High Quality Mowing/Outfront Design
Walker's outfront design lends itself to many unique advantages compared to other mower styles. One of the most convenient features is the tilt-up deck allowing easy access to the underside for blade and deck maintenance. The Walker design uses true deck suspension allowing the deck to "float and flex" and deliver a smooth, even cut; the deck moves independently from the tractor to follow ground contour and minimize scalping. The front-mount deck has more reach and better deck geometry for trimming closer than mid-mount decks typically used on other riding mowers. This is beneficial when working in tight areas and around low-hanging trees and shrubs. The outfront configuration is also an ideal platform for quickly mounting other highly productive attachments. Walker's outfront deck configuration distinctly sets it apart from others.
Simply put, the Walker Mower was designed to do a job and not just fill a market. No product studies were used and teams of engineers were not part of the inception. The innovative, time-tested design of the Walker is the result of years of improvement by listening to customers and implementing various industry advancements. Key to this elegant design has been discipline and staying true to the original overall size, even with larger, more advanced engines. Simple practical contruction of the Walker has made it a distinguished original.
