Ya I tried to limit the mowing this year but it has gotten out of control. Both mowers are paid in full and I financed half the tractor. The navigator was $9400 out the door. It works awesome on smaller properties. I have alot of bigger acreage lots that I use the big one on.

Whoa talk about giving walkers a run for the money. Thats alot cheaper than new walkers around here.

How do you like it so far on the small and tight properties? I bet it save a lot of trim mower time

Not around here. When I went to buy my walker last year. It was $9400 for a 20 Hp 48 inch unit. Navigators are $10400 for the same set-up.

Well a big factor is I like the exmark dealer around here and I wanted to keep all my stuff from one dealer. Walkers are really big around here.

I love how its got the trm side on either side and how tight you can turn without tearing the turf.

Nice stuff, I tried out a Nagivator last week, looking at getting a Mid Mount Z though, do you like the Exmark?? I'm torn between it and the Toro.

I love your stuff man....wish I could afford half the NEW stuff you have. You must be able to charge a nice $$$ for your work. Around here most guys including my self buy new stuff every 5 or so years beat it into the ground, and then HOPE we can pay cash for a replacement.

Thats on the list to get moved on to the ground cleaned oiled and wrapped. Rain rain and more rain.

All new equipment looks good but it only looks great if it is dirty from being used and used frequently; frequently enough to pay the bills and make a good profit! :weightlifter:

What did you shell out for the kubota if you don't mind my asking?

All the stuff looks nice!

Ya you should see the mowers now, rained pretty much all week. The kubota is a L3430 hydro, R4 tires, 72" woods bucket skid steer quick attach, forks, loaded tires, and 9 foot backhoe was a little under 30k.

What exactly is the difference between the Exmark Navigator and a Walker? Also (excuse the stupid question) what does LCO stand for?:confused:

I also would take my walker any day over the navigator. I love to be able to go from 48" collection to 52" side discharge in a matter of a few minutes. Other attachments for the walker are also a huge advantage. just my $0.02

MJM Good choice on the Navigator. I love mine. I agree that the people at dons are great and im not a big fan of Yerxas (walker dealer). Did i see you in west falmouth last week? I saw a navigator on a trailer but i didnt see the name on the truck. Be careful in wet areas.. i spent 2 hours getting mine unstuck a cupple weeks ago:hammerhead: ... Good luck!! you wont be sorry you got it!

I have an account in the woodlands in falmouth but it prolly wasnt me cause I haul my enclosed out there. Its not lettered yet.

Ya I have buried both mowers prolly 3 times. I use one to pull out the other! Its such a mess with all this rain.
