The study of free solvable groups has been advocated and pursued by Anatoly Vershik and others with various perspectives in mind. I will discuss random walks on free finitely generated solvable groups in the general context of geometric group theory and with an emphasize on exploring what algebraic properties are reflected in the behavior of various random walk.
