    hello all, im looking at buying an exmark 26'inch walk behiend instead of a regular 21' incher this year, enone used a 26' before? my dealer will have to order one of course, lot of people say buy a honda bagger, i also looked at a snapper seems like quality issues with some snapper models, do you think a 26' incher may be worth the investment as well as a time saver? ?

    Do a search on the 26 xmark....not sure you will buy one after that.

    Haven't used a snapper in years, but the one I had was outstanding at bagging anything...leaves, grass.

    Never had a Honda...heard a lot of good things though.

    Considering how much more they are for just that extra 5", I don't think the 26" is worth it.
