Scag
JD
Gravely
Kubota
Snapper Pro/Ferris

These brands are always on my short list as they cut great in the northeast in most all conditions. Hope this helps....

For small city lots that require bagging a Walker is the way to go. For larger lots and estates the ones I listed are much more productive and cut better in wet conditions.

You wont be disappointed. Walkers are amazing for those small lots that require bagging. You may also want to check out the Exmark Navigator which is similar to Walker.
