Walker Manufacturing of Fort Collins, Colo. produced Walker mower No. 125,000 on Friday, Oct. 18.  The machine rolled off the line in the morning and was celebrated with lunch and a company photograph 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," said 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 No. 50,000 and 2008 for No. 100,000 where thousands of customers, suppliers, and dealers converged on the Walker factory 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."
 
No. 125,000 is scheduled to ship at the end of October to Walker distributor Specialised Mowing of Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia.
