Welcome to Lawnsite.

While I really can't help you with pricing the Walkers, I'm sure there's someone here who can. I just wanted to say that you may have better luck finding them if you posted in the commercial lawncare forum here, instead of the homeowner assistance forum. But don't worry ... I'm sure a moderator will move it for you. Hope you find what you need.

Oh! Try the search feature at the top of the page ... you might find something there about valuea of used Z's. Good luck!

That is a whole lot of hours on a machine.
May be good back up machine, but i would be wary of using it
for full time mowing.

Its been my opinion that used equipment seems overpriced to begin with. I start by thinking of its value as HALF as the original value, then factor in condition, age, and other variables.

I'm just guessing that those walkers cost $9000 new. In my opinion they might be worth $2000. Look at the cost of replacing the engine and hydro components too.....that could run you 2500.
