Unless they have been opened you should get 500 to 1000 more hours out of them. Sounds like it was used privately and the owner doesn't know what it is worth. Unless you see a major issue buy it. I love mine.
He wasn't quite sure, but he thinks it is a 21 hp. He said all maintenance was keep up on it and this was his back up unit and only used it on his own yard. The only thing that was done to it was a new belt. Comes with extr blades also.

He said everything was original on it. I have never used a Walker before, but worn hydro's will fill sloppy or not be very responsive if abused, correct?

Any tips on what to look for with these mowers? I assume check for play in deck drive shaft, leaking hydro's, play in spindles, condition of impeller, and of course all fluid levels.
