    Just bought a 2004 Walker 20/48 with only 479 hours for $5500!!!!!!!!!!!So excited have to spread the word. Now I just want to find more customers. I'm gonna do a few ads in the local papers and was considering some lawn signs...any success with these? I also want to get a couple polo shirts with my company logo and go door to door with flyers looking reallll profreshional. Any cheap marketing ideas out there i wanna hear them. Thanks.

    That was a good price all you need now is to put a good suspension seat.

    Way to go. We have been running walkers since 96. Simply a beautiful cut and easy to service. We just added two more to the fleet 2008 MDs went to them a few years ago and will never go back to gas burners. The Diecels have more power and very seldom clog or bog down even in wet grass. We bought 48" GHS decks as well as 52" Sdischargers with mulch kits installed. Our bagging crews run 20 ft enclosed trailers and haul the extra decks, it takes about 10 min to switch out. Contact your local churches and run an add in their sunday bulliten. Contact your local Catholic Dioces Chancery office, most all have a news paper that is published weekly. Run an add in this paper. I did it 10 or so years ago and had to pull it because I couldnt handle any more accounts that season. Good luck with your Walker.
