    Rumor is exmark is "redesigning" the navigator and re- releasing it in the spring. Got that info from my dealer after asking why they didnt have any on the floor.

    Anyone else heard this? Im pretty excited to see it, and I hope it has interchangable decks.

    No. Last I heard they had a back log of them. I haven't talked to any dealers lately though. It would be nice if they had several attachments like walker. Why would they do a re design? It wouldn't take much to improve the current model. I'll have to check it out for sure since I have the current model.

    They need to support what they have out before they promise more!!!

    That would explain why last week on my way into town, I saw them out at the local park doing a photo shoot of the Navigator....

    I didn't get a close look at it though. Just noticed it as I was driving by a 35 MPH.

    You should have snuck over there, and gave the mower rabbit ears or just been in the shot. Or did they have high security and you didn't want to get shot?

    yep they are. my dealer and i are buddies n he told me they are trying to make it as maneuverable and zippy as a Walker. i demoed one last year with the intentions of dumping my walkers but it was so slow and unresponsive i couldnt buy it.

    My dealer is 100% trust worthy so I believe them. I will be curious to see what comes out. Within the next year or two I will be buying a new mower. It will either be a walker or a navigator. SO I am really curious to see what comes of it. I just pray they do interchangable decks. a 42 a 48 and a 52 ghs just like walker and a 60 and 74 side discharge would be perfect.
