Walker acquires Danfoss Power Solutions

Walker Manufacturing announced its planned acquisition of the Model 7 and Model 11 hydrostatic transmission product lines from Danfoss Power Solutions II, LLC, located in Eden Prairie, Minn. This acquisition includes the ongoing design, production and supply of the Model 7 and Model 11 transmissions.

“This acquisition underscores our passion and intrigue with the design and performance of the Model 7 and Model 11,” said Ryan Walker, president of Walker Manufacturing. “More importantly, our commitment to the many transmissions currently operating in Walker Mowers and many other pieces of equipment around the world.”


Walker Manufacturing has used the Model 7 in the Walker Mower for more than 40 years. Assembly, testing, and support functions will be based in Walker’s Fort Collins, Colorado factory, while sourcing components will largely be maintained within the existing supply chain. Walker is preparing the factory with the necessary space, infrastructure, and colleagues to support these products.

“We are excited to extend our decades of experience and talented team towards manufacturing and supporting the Model 7 and Model 11 transmissions,” said Walker, “We strive to serve people well, and multiply opportunities for everyone associated with Walker Manufacturing, and the acquisition is an opportunity for Walker to increase our effectiveness.”
