    Has anyone priced out a Walker S18 lately? I was thinking about getting one along with a 42 mulching deck.

    Seems to me they are mid 9's with the deck. You realize that you can not isolate the blower from the deck on the S. The shaft that runs both, A model C is the best option for swapping decks.

    Thanks for the reply, I did not know that. I will look itto the B and C models; not too interested in the collection system.

    If you don't need collection just look at B model. It is lighter and more nimble. You also have less parts that can go wrong.

    I paid 9332 + tax for a B23 northwest edition with a M42. I got a smoking deal as it sat all season on the dealers floor., that location everybody wants the GHS's. I think what you are looking at will be close. Where are you located. If you are anywhere near Atlanta......Masters.....

    we have a dealer that has price listed for b18 or 19 for about $9600. McCoyslawn.com I was thinking that is for the tractor only but based on what you are saying a deck may be included.

    I was pretty interested in getting an s18 series this spring but I ended up going a different route I was going to buy it without deck because I have so many different size decks. I could have bought just mower without deck for a little over 7000 with deck probaby 9 to 10 the only thing I would have to do is buy different spout and put on deck because s18 blower fan pretty much in center where mc series is off to side. I ran one at walker reunion days it was a nice machine. If I was going to get deck with s18 I would have probably spent the extra money and went with mc but like has been said I would go with the b series if your not bagging at all

    It looks like I can get the B23i with 42 mulch deck for about 10,600 Or B19 for 1k less. Both sales reps I spoke to seemed confused about buying non collection units. I am guessing Walkers are primarily collection units.
