Dixie Chopper XWF2700-60in, I'm about to add another new mower this month or so I don't know yet.:confused: I'm seeing how good of a deal I can get with my dealer, The new mower I might get is the SP2800-60in list for $9,800.

Thanks mike, I tried to send my pics to you but they said the pics were to large to send. Yea I might add another one, thats a funny story too I was out mowing all of my big accounts last Monday and my dad wanted to help me so he came and helped out a little with trimming it he said I did alot of sitting in the truck and on the last account It was pitch dark when I got done. So last Wednesday my dad and I went to get a new caster fork for the mower cause I bet the crap out of it and my dad saw the new supreme sitting there and said how much does this one cost and my dealer gave him the price and everything then last night was at the dealer again picking up new belts and my dad asked the dealer how good of a deal can I get on the new one. And then today I was telling my dad if I can buy my friends car off of him and my dad said you can't get it if you are planning on adding a new mower. So it's a 50% 50% chance mike.

Great work, and good sound choice of equipment, Michael. Good to see your Dad not only supports your career choice, but lends a hand now and then :)

We'd like to see a better choice of trailer for you to treat your $12K DC a little better in-transit.
A double axle version would suit you well, especially if you are adding a 2nd DC.

Again, superb work and equipment !

Thank somm! Well I called last Friday to get prices on new trailer.

yea man its tough to learn the language of dads haha, but I was looking at one of the first pics with the mower shot from the back and noticed the seat was on the left of the center, does this bother you? on my mower I wish either the seat was farther to the right than it is or that the deck was more offset to the left lol im getting tired of taking tree branches to the face when trying to mow around the base :dizzy:

Thanks, The mower is a simplicity pacer, I paid $1,800 for it too. One heck of a deal IMO. What I like about it is you don't have to mess with spacers to change the deck height, just a twist of a knob and the deck goes up or down.


Anyone else want to see some more stripes?

Thanks, Yup almost right in front of the entrance of SCC. It took 21 yards of mulch. My name and number is below in my signature if you ever need any help. What is the name of your company? Hope to see you around.

Nope haven't got the new mower yet, If I do decide to get it it will be the end of this month or beginning of June. I'm doing another 20 yard mulch job so I'm going to use some of that money for my 10% down payment. My mower is starting to act up, I bent the deck while mowing a bank repo. I plan to get the new supreme SP2800-60in. I really want one of the new 60in diesel but don't have the cash.

Yup them are turf boss tires. I have another set of tires, I think they are called field trex for in the spring when the ground is soft.

Hey thanks Eric. I try my best, but my helpers don't. As soon as I can get two guys down on the Dixie's I will run the landscaping crew. Hope your business is going well this year. It's rained all this week and it's going to rain almost all next week, time to put the baggers on.
