Are you sure that is not some leftover model from a few years ago??? It seems strange that this machine is not listed on the Bobcat website.
I do remember a machine they offered, similar to this, back around 1999 or 2000. however, it was painted green.

Alright to clear this up they did stop making them about a year or so ago. I just misunderstood the dealer because when I was looking at a demo he had I asked him if you could order me a new one with the 42' deck. He told me he could but they was from his distributor not because they was still making them. I just did not know that. The dealer also told me the red had something to do with Steiner. I want to say they had something to do with the design of the mower or designed parts of the mower. I know the Jacobson model of it said on the side of the hopper "Jacobson by Steiner". The dealer told me I just can not remember right now. Their was also Bunton version of the mower. The dealer said they may still make the Bunton verion but he wasn't sure. I do not think they do. The reason Bob-Cat stopped carrying them because of sales in this mower was not as high as their other mowers. Sorry guys I just misunderstand the dealer when I talked to him about it a while back.

Also This model is a ZT125 not ZT100

I guess I don't understand why someone would pay $9500 for a mower that is no longer produced. How will you get parts for it?

Gotta love the copy-cats..... If you want a Walker buy a Walker don't buy a imitation that won't cut the same or pick up the leaves or grass clippings the same. I have owned a Walker since '08 you can not beat the quality of cut.....

Bob-Cat is still in business therefore they are still making parts for these mowers.

I would pick a navigator or even a bob-cat over a walker any day I have cut with all of them and ran them side by side. The walker isn't what is built up to be. I don't care what anyone says. I know 2 of the biggest lawn care businesses in my area use a bob-cat zt125 and use a walker as a back up bagger mower. The other one uses a navigator and a walker as a back up as well. They both told me the walker is to much up keep and was always something wrong with them. I could go on but I'm just saying I know I would never buy a walker.
