    I've been looking into getting a 26" self propelled. One that will work good on a relatively steep banking, as well as flats. Everything I've researched seems like there aren't any that are any good. Any input to anything good out there would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I thought only exmark made a 26'' walk behind?

    Snapper does NOT make a good 26"! I know from personal experience. These Snapper 26" mowers are not commercial and would never hold up. It may be ok for a homeowner mowing his own yard once a week, but thats it.

    I don't think there is a good commercial grade FINISH quality mower between 22" and 32". The ones that look like they'll cut goo are underpowered and light duty and the ones that are built tough are built to cut brush.
