    ok i've been talking alot about walker lately. i found a used walker MT20hp with 800hrs for 7,000. he says its in exceptional shape and it has a 48in gh deck on it. what do you think is it worth it?
    thanks

    That sounds pretty high for a mower with 800 hrs on it, though I'm no Walker mower expert.:confused:

    Sounds like its over priced to me. I bought a 2003 20hp, 48 deck, large hopper, light kit, extra blades, with 100 hrs on it for $6300 a year an 1/2 ago in mint condition. The mower now has 420 hrs on it and I if I were to sell it I would ask $6000 for it.

    It's probably worth about $3000-$3500 depending on condition.
