Navigator Zero-Turn Mowers

There’s mowing. There’s manicuring. And then there’s navigating.
Nothing is perfect. But a lawn maintained with an Exmark Navigator professional-grade zero-turn mower may be as close as it gets. That’s thanks, in large part, to its patented fill-reduction. Combined with a larger diameter blower, the Navigator generates more airflow for better vacuuming and debris collection. And this year’s model is perfectly suited for any pro who wants even more controllability, responsiveness and less hand force. Another Navigator signature trait is the higher blade tip speed for slicing grass into finer particles. Then, its center-discharge deck designed with two-sided trimming lets the operator accurately control discharge, keeping flower beds and walkways clipping-free. And the Navigator does all this at speeds up to 7 mph. So, you can Navigate a virtually perfect lawn in no time.

    Comments about Exmark Navigator Zero-Turn Mowers:

    The Navigator is an amazing machine! Perfect for residential and commercial use. It has plenty of power and bags or mulches the grass and leaves perfectly. Low maintenance and heavy duty/simple construction - i.e. Deep deck, flat free tires on front and back, few grease points, large shoot that never clogs!

    Service and delivery comments:

    The machine was ready to go as soon as I needed it. My xmark dealer is available for any questions and always amazingly helpfull with any questions or concerns.

      Comments about Exmark Navigator Zero-Turn Mowers:

      Very happy with the mower. I previously owned it's #1 competitor do the last 10 years but after a month of ownership I wished I would have bought a Naviagtor a long time ago. The option to mulch is great and has saved me a ton of time. It does so good I wonder where all that grass is going. If this mower is as reliable as other Exmarks are I will be extremely happy.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Very happy with customer service and delivery of mower.

      My navigator was delivered on time in an excellent condition ready to mow when I drove it off the trailer. I had one small problem with it and the service department fixed it immediately.
