Walker Announces Third Family Reunion

Walker Manufacturing Company, producers of the Walker Mower, have announced their third milestone production celebration for Friday through Sunday, July 13-15, 2018. The event will celebrate the production of Walker Mower #150,000 and will mark 40 years since the creation of the first Walker Mower.

“We are a company that likes to celebrate,” explains Walker President Bob Walker, “We believe taking time to recognize achievements both big and small helps keep a company healthy and reminds us of our blessings.”

The Walker Family Reunion will consist of a number of events including the Walker World Championship Obstacle Course, The Walker Advantage Driving Experience and Skills Challenge, factory tours, workshops, a family area, various bands and two nights of entertainment headlined by Josh Wilson and Doc Walker. 

“This celebration is also a reminder of the profound opportunity we have to impact others,” explains Walker, “We see business as multiplication of opportunity; our factory team is only a small part of the overall impact of this product when you consider our suppliers, distributors, dealers and the customers we are blessed to work with.”

Decks Updated with Adjustable Footrest

Large decks for the MH tractor have a new adjustable footrest. First introduced with the DR64R deck, the DS60 and DR52 will now utilize the same design. There are two individual footrests that are easily adjusted in six fore-and-aft positions to suit operator leg lengths. Also, the new footrests retract, and along with a new belt drive cover, allow the deck to tilt up without removing the cover. Deck tilt-up is made easier using stronger counterweight springs and new hook geometry on the deck carrier frame.
