    I have two mowers I am looking at. One is a used Exmark Navigator with 210 hours on it for $5200 the other is a Bobcat FastCat pro which I believe will run me about $6200 I have to double check with my dealer.

    Just wondering what you guys think...Is it worth an extra 1K to buy brand new and have to buy a bagging system also? Or is an almost new Exmark Navigator a good deal.

    I do not want to bag all of my properties but I can leave the deck on partial collection in the spring and summer than full bag in the fall for leaf season...Decisions Decisions

    Two completely different machines. Go with the Bobcat. Way more versatile.

    I realize they are completely different I am just considering the fact that the awesome bagging capability of the navigator might be a good asset in the fall for leaf season.
