Happy customers are what makes a successful business. Michel Dovelde of Waterloo Belguim shares how his background as a diary farmer has informed his success as a one-man landscape business.
Tom De Munter of Lede, Belgium is a man of few words, but he has a few to describe why he has used Walker Mowers in his business: “The mower is maneuverable and I can get into tight spaces—it is very efficient and fast on the job.” He also says that easy access to all moving parts and higher horsepower in the Walker versus the competition set the Walker apart. Grass collection is a necessity in De Munter’s work, so he says the Walker is the only way to efficiently and beautifully collect grass.
GMV in Hooglede opened its doors in 1978. Owned and operated by Patsy Verplanke, GMV is unique in two ways. First, Verplanke is very creative and aggressive, tells Erwin Vander Putten, commercial salesperson for the Walker master distributor in Belgium, Depiere. "The commercial market has a lot of potential here, and she is willing to do what it takes to capitalize on this potential."
There are 300 campsites in Park Pollentier, Middlekerkel, Oostende. Mowing the area used to be a never-ending task for camp owner Martin Gernaey. In fact, he and another operator would never finish the task using two walk mowers; it was literally never-ending.
