    My dealer told me that Walker is coming out with a Special or Anniversary Edition mower. It comes standard with the suspension seat, light kit, and chrome wheels, steering levers and forward control lever. It is a $1000 option. Anyone else hear anything about this? I bet it looks sharp. I'm not saying that I'm running out and buying one, but I think it would be neat to have some "bling" on your mower.

    I'm sure that's just what the Walker people want to hear ... that their special edition model is considered to be "bling" !!

    The history behind the Walker Mfg. Co. is fascinating and quite impressive. I think its nice how they have a special event after a curtain number of Walker mowers have been produced and keep that model in their museum. The manufacturing facility is amazing and very efficient. I have never been to the plant in CO. but i've seen video footage on the history and production of their products.

    I have also heard about the special Walker that is coming out to celebrate their 100,000 unit produced. It sounds cool, but I would never buy one. After a season of using it, apperance wise it would look just like everything else that is used hard. My dealer told me BTW, that it will be around 12,500. Expensive I think

    I wish I could buy one just to keep in the garage. Kinda like a Vette. Take it out only on nice days but never mow with it.:waving:

    Our dealer was telling us about it as well... I think it even had chrome valve covers and stuff on the engine... cool idea but I don't think we'll shell out the extra money for the "bling" version.

    It is a dressed up version of the MT28 with chrome appointments including wheels, levers, valve covers, air intake, catcher lift handles, etc. Yellow pearl paint. Suspension seat standard. 28 HP Kohler EFI. Production to begin around the time of the 2008 Family Reunion. Number of units produced will be based on distributor orders placed by Dec 1, 2007.

    sounds like it looks neat, but bling does not make you more money.
