    looking to buy a walker or a scag cougar. Which one is the better and why. good or bad price is about the same. Not to be use on large commercial property just upscale homes.

    Id go with the Walker, it lighter, sits lower to the ground, and you can get different size decks.

    There was a recent thread on this. The vote was Walker....HANDS DOWN. Do a search, you should be able to find it.

    can't say for the cougar (never road one) but I can say for the Walker as I have 3 ....n they are mainly used on detail areas with lots of bed or tight areas ...NO dissapointments

    here's our new 26 EFI with 42" mulch deck .... $8600 out the door;->

    If you ever plan on bagging the Walker is the top of the line for that. Other units might have faster ground speed.

    I have owned 2 Walkers, they worked great for me.
