Regarding the original factory warranty. Does the OEM warranty extend to the second owner or does it stop with the original purchaser. I understand that Walker is completely supportive of its customers and is concerned about maintaining a high resale value on their machines. The policy of many UNNAMED and POPULAR manufacturers is a detriment to the people that buy their machinery because it cannot now be resold with the remainder of the warranty available to the third party. Nevermind WHY someone would sell a machine before the one year or two year OEM warranty has expired. That's not the issue. The issue is most guys don't even realize the lack of product support this policy represents.
