    I kinda saw this one coming just about every one has a stander mower around I heard scag is coming out with one next year as well, but I wonder why toro does not have a navigator type mower

    Here's the Scag V Rider...

    The Navigator is basically dead! Exmark stopped producing them 3 years ago, and is selling off the inventory sitting in a warehouse. (This is from a very reliable source!) Poor sales against the Walker was the reason.

    ... and speaking of Scag... Scag had a Walker copy out a while back.
    Here are the specs off of Scags website:
    For the ultimate in dependability, the Scag Cougar uses time-proven Scag spindle assemblies to drive the blades, not direct drive gearboxes and shear bolts. A driveshaft drives the cutter deck to deliver positive, no-slip power, even in heavy cutting conditions.
    8.5 MPH forward and 5 MPH reverse speeds keep productivity at a maximum.
    10 bushel (93 gallon) hopper capacity lets you spend more time cutting grass and less time dumping it.
    Choose a 42", 48" or 52" "Quick-Baffle" cutter deck. Match that with a 27hp liquid-cooled Kawasaki or 25hp Kohler air cooled engine. Click here for a complete list of engine and cutter deck combinations.
    The "Quick-Baffle" cutter deck lets you bag, mulch or side discharge all with the SAME deck. There's no need to waste money purchasing extra cutter decks! Save trailer space by having one machine that can do it all.
    Wide range of cutting heights can easily be changed in the field without tools. Adjustment from 1.5" to 5" in 1/2" increments.
    Marbain cutter blades stay sharp longer for reduced maintenance.
    Dual heavy-duty Hydro-Gear hydraulic pumps and Ross wheel motors combine to give you smooth, responsive, reliable drive power.
    Clog resistant, high efficiency centrifugal blower design allows 50% more air velocity than previous designs. Large 8" transition tube between the cutter deck and blower for maximum airflow.
    7.5 gallon fuel capacity keeps you in the field cutting grass (dual 3.75 gallon tanks).
    Extra large 23 inch drive tires, 11" front caster wheels and 16" rear caster wheel ensure better traction, less turf tearing and easy curb climbing.
    Spring loaded idler arms effortlessly keep cutter deck and pump drive belts in constant, optimum adjustment for maximum life and minimum maintenance.
    Operator friendly instrument panel includes an hour meter, ammeter, ignition switch, water temperature gauge (27hp Kawasaki liquid-cooled only) and separate choke and throttle controls. A preset area is available for the optional Hopper Fill Alarm system.
    User-friendly design allows quick, clean access to the engine and filters, for easy maintenance.
    Manual cutter deck engagement system for easy cool weather blade engagements.
    Interlocked parking brake system prevents movement while trailering unit or parking on slopes. Mower will not operate with brake engaged to prevent premature brake wear.
    The blower can easily be disengaged in the field to deliver maximum power to the cutter deck when mulching or side-discharging. No tools required.
    The Scag "Simply the Best" commercial warranty stands behind you and your mower for years of profitable service.
    Kawasaki powered Cougars come standard with a remote engine air pre-cleaner.
    Oscillating discharge spout inside the hopper ensures the maximum hopper capacity is utilized.
    Debris deflector is built into the rear door of the hopper. It directs dust and debris towards the ground and away from the operator.
    The hopper debris screen can be easily removed in the field, without tools.

    I love competition... it makes everyone try harder and make a better product!
    Too bad that they gave up on that type of mower.
