2. Platte River Power Authority

1.14 Acres, 49,658 sq. feet, Kentucky Blue Grass

Platte River offers a few challenges for the commercial operator. While it does have lots of wide open mowing, it has a 20° hill with trees at its crest along with tightly clustered landscape rocks. In addition to open productivity capability, a well matched mower for this property needs excellent trimming capabilities and a flexible deck design.

0.07 Acres, 3,049 sq. feet, Kentucky Blue Grass

Moonglow Drive is the typical residential lawn with lots of tight spaces, a 42" back yard gate opening, and landscaped beds. For most other brands, a commercial riding mower is not an option here, but with the compact Walker mower getting on and off this lawn in a matter of minutes is a breeze.
