Nice mowers and trailer. Why no lettering on truck? mangnets or stick on? How did you reck your trailer?

Thanks, Well I was going to letter it but I didn't want to waste the money cause I am selling it. And I was going to get a set of magnets but never had the time to go and get some made. Well how I wrecked the trailer was a pretty funny story. I was sitting at a stop sign and this truck was coming and from my point of view it looked like he was turning left cause the signal was blinking so I took off and it turned out to be his hazard lightswere on cause he was pulling a car with a chain and he ends up running into me cost me $800.00 for a new ford SD bumper.

I love the choppers. They have made me more productive which equals more money in my pocket. The only thing I don't like is when I have a new employee working for me and he tears up the yard but next season switching all tires to field-tex tires like the one on the 04 flat-lander that is for sale.

The mowers are pretty dirty. They usually don't ever look like this. I am a neat freak I guess lol. I yell at my employees if the get grass all over the machine, I tell them to blow off the machine and there like it just going to get more grass on it lol.

$6,500 for the Dixie Chopper 750Hrs. Just had the oil changed, and all zerts are greased once a week. The mower is dirty an hardly ever looks like this but I didn't have time to clean it up but all of machines are cleaned at least once if not more week. It's a good mower, starts up every time on the first start.

I am in Lima, Ohio not to far from you. I went to Ware House On Wheels in Van Wert. 18ft with split gates, brakes, new tires and rims for $1,800.00. It was a steal to me so I had to get it.

The trailer looks nice...wish i could get something like that. Have hauled my new mower twice and i am already tired of having to put up the discharge shoot each time because my trailer is not wide enough. I guess it is just money:)

Also is that your JD in your Avatar? If so what model? How do you like it? Also how much did it run you? I thinking about adding a JD 757, JD 48in stander and JD tractor in the spring but I never ran them and no one around here runs them but then again the dealer is 15 mins away and Dixie Chopper dealer in 5mins away. But then again that green fleet is very tempting.

The one in the picture is not the mine because i havn't had a chance to change it. Just got a 737 with a 60" last monday. It cuts really nice. Price was $7,295 since it was a model that they had since the beginning of the season otherwise it would of been 200 more for a new one. Got it a kennedy kuhn in van wert. Service will be easy because a neighbor works there so he could take it over and save a trip :)

I've got a 737 with the old 7-Iron deck and love it. I ran a 757 with the new deck earlier this spring and really wish i'da waited to get mine till the new decks came out. I just ordered a new 657A 54" Stander with the 7 Iron II deck though, can't wait to get it. The deere's aren't as fast as your choppers, but I have absolutely zero complaints with my z and 2 walk behinds, both of the w/bs have been run into the ground and they are still kickin. I don't think you would go wrong runnin a green fleet.

Do you have the striping roller for it? Hows it work? Wanna know if it is worth $350?!

I don't have the striping roller on mine. I work part time for a company that has them on their 757 and 997, they do a nice job, but i dont think they are worth the $350 for one. The 7 Iron deck has as ton of vacuum and is real deep, so it stripes really nice on it's own in my opinion. I'll try to get some pics up of some of the stuff i mow with mine and see waht you think.
