    I might be a couple 1000 off not over 100,000.

    Last winter I toured the factory, I believe they were approaching 225,000.
    If I remember right.

    From their website.

    Walker Manufacturing currently has 18 US and 26 Export Distributors as well as over 1,100 dealers world-wide selling and servicing Walker Mowers.

    Walker Mowers are distributed worldwide to over 28 countries. They can be seen on the lawns of castles in Europe, parks Down Under, international State Houses and a number of other exclusive properties throughout North America.

    For some reason they have not updated their production numbers on their site since 08.

    Ok, hard to believe, my 2009 model MDD has SN# 103,702
    your telling me in three years they made more mowers from 1980 to 2009? I go by SN number of machines produced. Even if you go to there site there MT/MDD parts manual dated 2009 only go up to SN 103914. Perhaps I'm reading the numbers wrong?

    There is one word for the Walker MDD... awesome. We have four and they have been great so far, better torque, fuel economy etc. over the gas models. I would advise getting a speed up kit installed, we did and it makes a huge difference in production.

    I was certain that they were talking over 200,000 models sold when we were at the factory.

    Now you guys are making me doubt myself. *trucewhiteflag*

    As for the speed up kits...... my local dealer doesn't recommend them because in their mind running the hydro pumps faster takes life off of them.
    Now whether they have experience with speed up kit hydros going less hours than none I do not know, but their opinion is that you'll get less hours from the speed up ones.

    Also, the speedup kit makes the steering very senitive, jerky, harder to control.
