    I am looking for a good used Walker MTGHS with a 42" deck, 48" would be OK but I would have to redo my trailer to make it work. Does any one near Oregon have one, know of one, or does anyone know of good places to check out on the web for good used Walkers in or near Oregon.

    Thanks

    You might want to try eBay. Just be careful and check it out closely...

    I check e-bay everyday, Everything is on the east coast so shipping or pick up would be a fortune, and they are all worn out or very little use and I may as well by a new one. My local dealer will sell a new MTGHS 20h 42" for $9350.00

    Thanks for the thought

    I just bought that same mower last year at this time for $8800 in Vancouver, just north of Portland, OR

    dkeisala,
    Do you happen to remember the name of the dealer or maybe a phone number?

    Clark County Lawn & Tractor - Being in Bend, there has to be equipment dealers closer to you than way up here.

    How do you like that unit? I have been thinking about buying one, but think I would go with the BIGGER HP (25 I think). What do you think?

    everyone seems to be horsepower junkies around here. the 20 horse Kohler is just fine for me. got plenty of power for what we are doing around here, wet or dry grass. i love it, perfect for us and some of the best money i've spent.

    dkeisala,
    I do have a local dealer but like I said they will not go any lower then $9350 for that mower. So I just thought I would look around a little more.

    Mike,
    I used to work for a larger company in the oregon valley, (lots of rain) we used a MTGHS 20 with 48" deck and a MTGHS 26 with 48" deck they both worked great in wet grass or leaves and I never had any problems with them at all. HP didn't seen to be an issue with either mower. We did have a full time Mec. that did weekly maint. to the units so that helped keep them in the field rather then in the shop. Like I said though with the maint we never had a major problem.

    Hey neighbor. Been really happy with the 20hp and I know several LCO's who love it as well.
