    I found a used 2001 Walker 26EFI 42" deck and a 52" side discharge, 9.5 bushel catcher with 1084hrs. He wants $5,900.00.

    Also has a 36" toro floating deck 12.5 kawi. with catcher (2 yrs old), 48" scag belt drive, 11.5 hp Honda pressure washer (1 yr old). 6x12 landscape traler with racks on both sides and a basket (enclosed) in the front. Misc. trimmers and some tools (echo) ....asking $10,900.00 including the above Walker. Say's he'll make me a deal if I buy it all.

    What do you guys think? The dealer quoted me $9800.00 including taxes for a new Walker 42" deck and 9.5 bushel catcher. Exmark hydro 36" floating for 4200.00

    Risk the used stuff??

    Sounds pretty decent. Do you have a dealer nearby that can service it?? I'd have them take a quick look over it, if they have been servicing it regularly they will know the history of it and if there are any issues.

    I think it's a fair price. I would always try and talk them down though. :cool:

    Sounds like a buch of junk to me! :D

    I'm in the Atlanta area. You should go with the new stuff and let me take a look at that junk. It's probably been sitting in public storage somewhere. lol

    :D Bill, I took your advice! Will be loading that new Walker and Exmark hydro tomorrow. Not sure about the hand held stuff though.leaning toward Echo. You know who was knocking them all the way down Bells Ferry trying to convince me to stick with Stihl.

    paged you tonight to let ya know before I saw your wise@#* post here.
