    They will have a 31hp water cooled model that will run 7 mph. (faster than the navigator). I have never needed to go that fast mowing(mine has the speed-up kit installed) but I have often wished for more speed when going to dump or transporting. I mow at 10 mph+ with my tigers but the walker doesn't ride well going faster than 5 or 6 mph and the ghs deck starts to bounce. The scag couger(no longer in production) rode much better at the faster speeds, but it was heavy.
