    i've got a 20 hp Walker GHS with a 1100 hours on it, the lease lease it up in April and the buyout is $3000, so i would think that price sounds about right. but it's hard to tell without seeing the condition. one tip, take a grease gun with you, there are about 26 grease fittings, and if they won't take grease, it's a good sign the rest of the maintenance was neglected as well, cuz grease is cheap and it takes no more then 5 minutes a week to grease it, so there's a good chance that they didn't do the more expensive and time consuming maintenance (air filters, fuel filters, changing oil in hydrostats, gear boxes, etc.)
