Older Walker Questions

I am looking at putting on a Walker or an Exmark with the grass handling system. I have found a Walker 42" with 3200 hours for $2800, has new tires, new seat, just serviced, and an Exmark 48" with 1400 hours for $4500ish. I would prefer the 42 inch because I can get into more gates, but is 3200 hours too much? How long do these go?

Thanks,

Jason

Probably has a new engine, but they havent changed too much over the years, but I would budget it needing another engine within a couple years, but you never know.

I depend on my dealer for repairs. He knows all the tricks to keep it going.
