On Friday, October 18, Walker Manufacturing produced Walker Mower #125,000.  The machine rolled off the line in the morning and was celebrated with lunch and company photo of Walker's 155 employees.

"This represents the work of our people at the factory along with hundreds of people in our sales channel and thousands of customers who have made Walker Mowers a part of their livelihoods," says Walker President Bob Walker, "We have not done this alone, and we are thankful for the relationships that continue to be established and nurtured as we build the mower."

The company has celebrated milestones throughout their history including two Walker Mowers Family Reunions in 2000 for #50,000 and 2008 for #100,000 where thousands of customers, suppliers, and dealers converged on the Walker factory in Fort Collins, Colorado for two-day celebrations.

"We are a company that likes to celebrate accomplishments," says Walker, "And recognizing the people who make company progress is part of our company DNA."

Number 125,000 is scheduled to ship at the end of October to Walker Distributor Specialised Mowing of Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia.
