    Who has used one or more Navigators this season and how did you like them? How were they on wet grass? Did you have to go super slow in wet grass? How good did it strip? What didn't you like about the Navigator?

    I don't know, but will they come out with an Aviator later, and the Aviator be much smaller than the Navigator, then get sued by Ford, the makers of Lincoln?

    I've ran A Navigator since late April. I love it! Ran Walkers for about 15 years, but took a long hard look at the exmark, and liked what I saw. No problems in wet grass, or even in 14 days of Bahia growth down here on the Gulf Coast. Actually, now that I think of it, it only clogged up one time all season, and that was when I was doing a major clean up job that was a mixture of leaves, pinestraw, and a month or more of growth following 2 days of heavy rain. It has better pick-up than a Walker, and the cut quality is every bit as good. The machine is heavier built overall than Walker as well. It's a more maintenence friendly machine as well. Did I mention that they are anywhere from 1-2 grand cheaper?

    Well that's about the first informative review on the Navigator I've read. I really hadn't heard how they preformed compared to the Walker and I'm sure we will get mixed opinions. Bartender keep em coming.
