I have four walkers two 20hp ghs one 18 hp ghs and an old 11 hp with side discharge. You can't beat the quality of cut and they are very well built. Two of the ghs units I bought new and they are 2001 and 2002 model years and are still going strong. The up front investment defiantly set us apart from the rest. Just my opinion

The first walker was the 18 hp and it allowed us to more than double the grass route in one year. And ten years later we do around 200 lawns a week and have the largest maintenance division in our area. I feel the walker was a big selling point for us and the efficacy and low operating cost has allowed us to really do well with them

What's KrayzKajun? I'm right next door to u in St. Charles Parish. I was just in your area earlier today. I just landed a couple of cemeteries that I took care of today. How much business you have out there?

Which dealer do you always deal with? Is is Theriot's? I always deal with Vaughn's, they also have a 52" and a 61" Scag both for $9,999. That's a great deal on both!!!

Have you demoed a Scag? If not a side by side comparison with the Walker would be a great deciding factor if you could get both mowers at the same time.
