    They have made these for, well, for ever I think...
    I'm pretty sure the one on Ebay is made by someone else, if not Toro maybe that's Bunton/Textron's version?

    I had no idea that Steiner made a Walker copy. I have no idea if it's worth a damn but good find.:drinkup:

    Steiner is/was a textron company and that photo bears a great deal of resemblance to the Bobcat version of a couple of years ago.

    I was immediately thinking bobcat as well. In the engine picture they have the same clear plastic tube with the owners manual in it just like the bobcat wb have. Good Call, thing looks pretty bad-ass though...I like the black.

    I've seen the same thing at our dealer . For what they cost and price of attachments and the fact they have a problem with reliability . I would back away from one . He can't give his inventory away .

    Correct. Bob-cat and jacobsen make the same mower.

    Even Bunton had one of these same mowers made under the Jacobsen/Textron setup. It was called the BZT 1000.

    About a year ago, some equipment dealer had a new Bob Cat or Bunton on ebay for $7500 OBO. It ended selling for $5000 with best offer.
