Collection Deck Review

Walker Mower Deck C36R.jpg
  • Deck:
  • C36R
  • Information:
  • The 36" Deck really should only be considered when access to areas/gates make it necessary. The attribute of being able to trim with both sides of any Walker GHS Deck makes it possible to use a larger (42" plus) deck size for most areas. Some contractors have made good use of the 36" Deck as an attachment alternative; changing from 48" to 36" Deck during days of week when many 36" gated properties must be serviced. The 36" Deck now has reverse rotation providing a cleaner cut than earlier models.
  • Appearance after cutting:
  • Clean stripe across entire deck width.

  • Deck:
  • C42
  • Information:
  • The 42" Deck is popular for very intensely landscaped areas. Drive tire size on tractor should not exceed 9.5" when utilizing this deck so that deck will be wider than tractor for trimming.
  • Appearance after cutting:
  • Typical alternate Walker stripe!
Walker Mower Deck C48.jpg
  • Deck:
  • 48
  • Information:
  • Most popular deck for contractors and any area where you will depend on the Walker Mower to collect a lot of leaves.
  • Appearance after cutting:
  • Typical, famous alternate Walker stripe!
Walker Mower Deck C48R.jpg
  • Deck:
  • 48R
  • Information:
  • The 'R' stands for Reverse Rotation, cutting the grass with sharp edge of mower blade rotating toward the front of the deck (as opposed to toward the back of the deck which results in the typical 'alternate Walker stripe' described for the 42 & 48). This reverse rotation 'stripe' bends the grass forward. The same direction drive tires are bending grass which produces a consistent wide stripe across the entire deck width. The reverse rotation also seems to produce a cleaner, crisper cut. Leaf collection ability is slightly compromised as compared to the traditional 48" deck. This Deck has become my favorite for its crisp cut and clean striping. Best used with a tractor with a 10.5" GHS Blower.
  • Appearance after cutting:
  • Clean strip across entire deck width.
Walker Mower Deck C52R.jpg
  • Deck:
  • 52R
  • Information:
  • Tractors powering this deck must have a minimum of 23 HP and be equipped with the 10.5" GHS Blower (Standard Equipment 2007 and on). The 52" Deck also has reverse rotation cutting resulting in the same crisp cut and wide clean striping effect of the DGHS48R. The extra width improves trimming and typically increases productivity 5%+ as compared to a 48" Deck. There is a lip welded around the underside of the deck that prevents the reverse rotation air flow from blowing debris out under the edges. This 'lip' can wear over time if underside of the Deck is constantly scraped by uneven terrain, etc..Requiring weld on replacement. Leaf collection avility is good but it can become overwhelmed in heavy leaves resulting in narrow strip of uncollected debris being left down the center of the cuttin path which could require an additional trip over lawn to pick up.
  • Appearance after cutting:
  • Clean wide stripe across entire deck width.
