    Default Walker -vs- eXmark.

    I'm looking into buying another Z this next season.

    Right now I have a 61" Scag Turf Tiger and a Gravely 34z. I like the Scag(beautiful cut) but it's underpowered for mulching (22 h.p.) so it needs to go. I want to start bagging my props and would like to have bagging capabilities for Fall cleanups also.

    I'm looking for opinions on Walker Mowers and the eXmark Navigator.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Another question.....Is it much more difficult to steer these 3 wheeled units?

    First, why bag, extra work, and you are taking nutrients away from the grass...which means more fert...

    Walker was th e orginal. and I know years ago the navigator has its issues. but Walker has always been on top of their game. Just remember even with the speed up kit the walker and navigator will still be slower than the scag.

    they are no harder to drive than the scag Z. just have to remember that when you turn on the walker the ass end of the walker swings out. You WILL take out the occasional gutter.

    I always liked driving the walker the stick were close enough to drive one handed.

    I wouldn't buy a Navigator even though I own a few Exmarks. Everyone I've talked with that has owned both units tells me the Walker is a much better machine. That said, I'll be purchasing a diesel Walker in the spring. Wish that they offered a 25 HP Kawi powered unit. No Kohler powered anything for me.

    why not just get a scag with a bigger engine? Like the 29 hp liquid cooled model. Bagging isn't really needed unless you are cutting small patches of turf that run through landscapes, or your customer is anal.
