    Guy has a 97 WalkerCGHS 48" and a spare 54" side discharge deck with 16hp Kohler. Mower has 500 hours on it. He wants 5K for it. Is this a good deal?

    2 Years ago I paid 3900 for my 96' 26hp 48'' walker with a GHS. It had about 550 hours on it. He's probably figuring on getting talked down on the price.. I think the engine on mine is close to needing rebuilt now so be careful what you buy.

    16 hp isn't much power for a 54 inch deck.

    Thanks for the input guys. I was going to hit him the gut with 4K cash.

    Even 4k Is pretty high for a 98 16hp! Start lower what do you have to lose? But personally i wouldn't settle for anything less then a 20hp!!!
