Others sources for a Walker muffler/exhaust

My Walker zero turn needs a new exhaust. I called the dealer and got the price for an OEM muffler and pipe. Any other sources that have quality parts that might be a little more economical? Thanks.

Is this something that could be welded ?

I will get the full engine info. It is a Kohler 20Hp. I thought about having the muffler shop that does all of my automotive work look at it but the muffler has 2 inlets. one comes in the end and the other into the side of the actual muffler. I probably would have had them try something if it had one inlet and one outlet.

Muffler is manufactured just for Walker to fit that specific chasis. Emmet equipment in Ohio deals in a lot of used Walker parts, may be worth a call to find out if they have any.

Yes, I figured it was specific to each Walker model. I called Emmett and was shocked at the price for a new one. $230. Not too crazy about putting a used part on if you have to pay that much for it. Mine looks fine but the muffler must be shot because of the noise. I didnt know if Stens or another aftermarket parts company carried anything like that.

This is a problem with companies like Walker, Toro and John Deere, they make it so you have to buy their parts.

Post some pics of your Walker, or some numbers. Any good muffler shop could fix you up or call Kohler and see what they can do for you.
