Good deal on Walker Mower?

I am wanting your guys opinion on this Walker mower. This guy is selling if for a friend and believes it is a 1991 model, but is not sure about it. How do I find out what year it is? It has a 16 hp Kohler with around 1,184 hours. Deck is either a 42" or 44". It looks to be in really good shape. He is asking $2,500. Do you thing this is a good deal? I don't really know that much about Walker Mowers.

Thanks

I don't see why it wouldn't be worth at least $2,000. Though I have heard a lot of bad things about that 16hp engine.

Not even sure at this point if it is a 91 or not. He said there is a little wiggle room in price.

$2500 is way too much. We bought a 1999 model 2 years ago with 800 hrs. for $900. The 16 hp engine has not been known to be very dependable.

Thanks guys for your input. I went and looked at it last night and it ran well and looked to be fairly well taken care of. But I am passing on it, because he was asking to much for a 20 year old machine.
