    That would all depend on year, deck size, engine size etc. More info is needed.

    I wouldn't buy a used walker w/ a bown 25 kohler unless you intend to replace the engine with the 26 kohler efi otherwise it won't climb hills of ut worth a damn. the 25 kohler is plagued with oil leaks and innsufficent power problems

    What a surprise-a blown 25 Kohler on a clean mower.i think we'll be seeing a lot more of these clean machines,mine included with bad 25hp kohlers.Id buy it if the price was right-I would not put another 25 in though,for obvious reasons.Id deduct about 2000 -2700 bucks from what its worth for the blown engine.

    In reguards to a motor swap on a Walker. You can swap the 20 and 25 HP motors with out much trouble but thats all. My 20HP 48" GHS unit has plenty of power.

    Tim, I wouldn't want to give any more than $2000.00 for the Walker with a blown 25HP. You can buy a brand new Walker power unit with a 20 HP for $6025.00...

    I can't get a new Walker power unit for $6025.

    With the 48"GHS deck, 20 hp, Walker would run close to $9900.

    We have one dealer in 45 miles. He is sorry too. So I don't buy anything from him, He's got that "you need me attitude, so I can run you over the coals."

    Wish we had a better dealer but everybody has turned the dealership down. They say a $10,000 mower will never sell here.
