brand new 26hp fi engine w/ a 48 in deck and the 9.5 catcher is around $11,000. Then you have every gadget known to man that you can add to them things.

IB GREEN,

have you used the aerator on a walker. That looks like it would be an awsome money maker.

I sure haven't I have always wanted to. I've seen them in action and they look like they would be a time saver.

It looks like it is a pluger type as well so it should do a real quality job.

Big Jim,
I feel for you with the prices but you sure have a beautiful country. (even if I just know that from pictures).

You made me laugh with the hat thing. The hat on the right is from my 25HP. Good hat , terrible motor.

The hat on the left is from the 26 and I must say that there is so much suction from that 26 running the GHS deck that it took the "r" right off the hat. It came that way out of the box. :eek:

My dealer will quote $10,000 for the 26 EFI with large bagger and 42" DECK. I believe he woud sell it for about $9500. He sold a 20 hp reently with a 48" GHS and large catcher for $8300.

Here the new motor with 48" cut will go between $10,000 and $11,000 new. The price sucks, I don't see they get that much into them. Part of the problem is the dealers have a huge markup.
They are good mowers.

Big Jim your price includes getting the unit from my back door (almost) all the way down under. :D

I bought a 2002 48" GHS with the 26HP EFI Kohler with a light kit and HD gearbox as options, it was $11,500 delivered. I LOVE it. I think it was worth every penny.

I paid $7018.00 for a 48", big hopper, 20 hp new here. He had been asking 9K for it. It didn't sell in 7 mos. I guess thats why I got it at such a low price. I know where there is another one with 22hrs on it for $7400.00. It is new also at another dealer. It was the best investment we ever make in our company.

I think I'm going to make the drive to Maine or La. to get my next Walker. The price difference is WELL worth the drive. Maybe I need to have a little talk with my local dealer.

$7,000 for a new 48 w/ a 20 hp and a 9.5 hopper! Where is you're dealer located? Thats about 3 grand off isn't it? You made a good move buying it!

Well I did get the 26 hp EFI and the light kit and the HD gearbox but I paid $11,5K. So there are some differences but youre right, I've seen pricing from around $8K - $9.5K and that's alot of $$.

You can save a few bucks looking for one that a dealer in another state needs to move but in the long run it is well worth your time to establish a relationship with your local dealer. This way when you have a problem during your busy season they will probally give you priority compared to someone who bought equipment somewhere else to save a couple of bucks. Simular to a lco taking care of their regular customer's clean-ups first then taking one time jobs after that.

Dave you got a point. Also the dealers need to learn that not every body will stand for getting one broken off.........


Green Pastures, I dont blame you for taking a drive. I sure would for that much of a price difference.
