    My dealer has a 2yr old 42 in navigator with 10-12 hrs on it for $7500. It was a demo version, but it seems to be in good condition. Also, is there a fast and easy way to dump those without making a pile on the trailer/truck or on the ground?

    NO you can get a bran new walker MC for $8600 the exmark looks good but walker is a much better mower for this application.

    is this an impluse purchase? have you researched the Navigator, What improvements has Exmark made to the Navigator in two years time? I know Walker is constantly looking for ways to improve the Walker design,

    I have done research, and the dealer is letting me test drive it for a weekend. Also, the walker dealer in my area would have to order it, and they have none that I can test drive.

    I have heard that they have upgraded the sensors for the bag-full warning, and a few other minor changes. Why do you ask?

    Also, I have noticed you use Walkers often. Do you just dump the grass in the hopper in a big pile on the trailer, or do you use another method?

    I currently dump the hopper on the trailer, and use a pallet & strap or mulch pitch fork to empty the trailer. On the Navigator demo unit I was just wondering if a 08 model would be a better equiped machine vs the 06 demo unit.
