Exmark Navigator

Is anyone using a Exmark Navigator for fall clean ups? How is the performance? Also, now that they have been out for a season how was the performance overall ?

Rottman, I have a navigator with about 300 hrs. on it and it is a great machine. I have found out if I run over the leaves first with my z or walkbehind which both have mulch kits it makes going farther before having to empty hopper. The only thing that has gone bad on the unit is the alarm that sounds when the hopper is full. They use the same one that is in the walker and are changing it. The local dealer replaced at no charge. Its a great machine.

I bought one at the beginning of the season and I love it. It does great on spring and fall clean ups. The only complaints I have with mine is the engine can be tough to start and the alarm has gone out on mine too. Great for clean ups though!

update kits

are available for the alarm boxes from exmark, at no charge to the customer.

I have had phenomenal reports on the Navigators i have out up here in New England. They said the leaf pickup is outstand. All but 2 are running the 27 kohler, others are the 20.

Just has a repeat sale yesterday. Was gonna wait till the spring but decided to grab it now for cleanups.
