Check out this great video of "The Walker Advantage!"
the advantages are underlined
Cheaper, poor maneuverability, snow blower, tiller and tractor hitch options, hard to access or remove the deck.
4WD option, expensive, cab options, hydraulics, poor manueverabiltiy, poor traction if not 4WD, medium amount of attachments, large and heavy.
Cheaper to build, rigid frame - less deck contouring, no tilt up deck, poor traction going downhill, good traction going uphill, few attachments if any, grass catching adds bulk and rear end weight where it is already not needed, poor reach under trees etc, unbalanced steering.
Medium priced, tilt up deck, best meanueverability, better on slopes than a Midmount, not as good on slopes as a tractor or 4WD Front Mount, floating deck, attachments, under tree or fence reach.
