I'm not sure where you would find a mower for 18k! I can get a brand new Walker for 11. I bought both of mine gently used and saved a lot of money that way.
Anyway, we all have to start somewhere and do what you gotta do to make money, but if you're going to get on here and rip on these mowers its probably because you have not owned one or don't live in an area where the need is there.
Walker, Toro, Stihl
