Predictable traction is fundamental to confident operation. Traction is increased when the weight of the mower is concentrated where the drive tires meet the turf. Whether you are mowing on hillsides or making high-speed zero-turns, the Walker will provide the traction that allows you to mow with confidence.

Better Traction Through Engineering
The counterweight springs enhance the traction of the Walker by transferring weight from the deck caster wheels and the tail-wheel to the drive tires.
Dependable Performance on Challenging Terrain
