I bought a new 2002 48" GHS with large hopper and no hours last week. I picked it up on the 27th. It had been at the dealers place for over 8 mos. I got a price of 8K from him the last 4 months. Anyway I guess I went in when he needed to sell. I got it for $7018.00 plus tax. He told me he had sold them for as much as 9300.00 It is a great mower. There are only 2 other LC in my area who use Walker's. Both of them had Dixie Choppers and sold them once they got the Walkers. I've had 3 of my customers comment on how good thier lawns look with the Walker. Good luck on your investment.

Super lawn that is way too high. For the $10K you could get a 26 in Loveland CO. That is where I went for all my equip. WY sucks when it comes to dealers in my area. I drove 1 hr to a good dealer.

Dukester you got a HECK of a deal!!!!!

Just found a walker dealer near me. These guys had 2 mowers one they used to mow their 1000sqft lawn and one for sale. They said they carried em for yrs but they hadnt only sell 26efi with 48ghs for $10k. Dealer was an idiot didnt know there were mulchin decks or anything. Ill stick to my toro and exmark dealers.

ps this is the john deere dealer

Makes sense the JD dealer doesn't want to sell Walker. The JD dealer here didn't stock any thing that would fit a Walker, and hardly wanted to order any thing for them.

The JD dealer here sells and services Walkers. Also has a good inventory of parts. If something not in stock, can ususlly get it shipped next day. Great service.

And to keep on subject, I wrote a check for $10,004.36 for my 48" GHS 26hp EFI Walker.

My jd dealer sells several walker per year and does an awesome job servicing and keeping the commercial guys running.

I bought my new walker august 12 last year and never regretted it. There is still plenty of $$ time left.

I am looking at my first Walker for residential use (mow about 1.5 level acres). Any advice would help.

I was quoted $10,xxx retail, discounted to $8900 + tax for a new MT20 w/42" GHS. Is that about right?

Also told that 48" GHS is notorious for clogging with wet grass, and that 42" deck is better.

Any idea what % markup dealers make?

Thanks!

Hi Art, you dug an old post up for your first shot here.
I am way back in the post talking about my 26EFI which is a machine you should consider. The reason I say that is because it uses as much gas as the 20 that you are looking at. I know the price is more but over time it will pay for itself especially with gas prices at 2 bucks a gallon plus.
I don't know much about what a dealer makes in markup but they have to pay the bills too so if you are looking for a deal you should buy a used one.
I have a 42GHS deck that I used to exclusively use, it is now only used for spring cleanup, fall cleans in limited use and when a customer HAS to have it bagged for special occasions. Those special occasions cost them extra cash.
Any Walker deck will clog under certain conditions. They will cut and bag wet grass but the process is slow and most times painful. The conditions that you have to have are, you have to set not cut low (max 1/4 of the height), you have to go slow, you have to have sharp blades and most importantly is you have to keep the screen in the hopper clean so air flows out from the deck thru the screen then out the back. Once that screen gets full of wet grass the air flow stops and everything clogs up. The other thing you want to do is tilt the deck up and clean the grass paths in the deck and also when you dump you should clean out the upper elbow that occillates as grass collects there.
Now I know you didnt ask but I would encourage you to demo a 52SD deck. It cuts like nothing else and makes it look great. I cannot stop this deck and the double blades make quick work of clippings. I do not have to bag and I get ZERO complaints in any weather conditions.
If you are sold on bagging then I would have to suggest the 42 over the 48 for the reason that the smaller deck creates a better vacuum. The extra 6" cut is not even a factor to make up over the long run. Thats my scoop on the Walker. I have owned one since 1998 and will always have one. They ain't the fastest but they work for me. Good Luck.
