I need to get a zero turn rider but can not afford the new mower price tags right now. I have an Exmark local dealer to me and a Walker dealer about 30 minutes from me. I have talked myself into a front mount which leaves with me just those options as far as the dealers. I have found an '05 Exmark with 330 hours, 27 hp, 48" deck, decent shape for about $5500. The best deal I could find on a Walker was an older model ( not sure of the year ) with 625 hours, 25 hp non EFI, decent shape with a 6 month warranty for $6800. With that many more hours, is the Walker still worth the extra money ? If I were buying new and had the money, I like the Walkers better and have heard more good about the Walkers than the Exmarks, but the Exmark sounds like a better deal to me. Thoughts ???????
