    hey guys i am looking for a 2nd walker mower for a back up mower. I dont want to buy a new one but i dont want to buy a head ache either. Please give your opinions on this mower. 20 hp kohler walker 525hrs 9.5 bushel hopper 48in deck. the guy is askin $6000.00. Is this a good deal. It looks real nice seems to be taken care of. The best part is it is in my home town. So no travel to get it. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, it sounds like a good deal. What year? With 525 hours it could be 2 years old.

    Sounds like a good deal to me too. I would check on the price of a new one as they now have 23hp as well as bigger engines too. That way you will know if it is worth it to you or not. 20hp is good enough for power too.

    i was going to use it as a back up mower to my larger walker. The only problem is i dont have $6000 just sitting around. Can you finance a used one? THanks guys

    Depends on your bank, your credit history, and other variables. Just talk to your bank.
