now that you have convinced me that dixon is not the machine to buy, how much is a dixie chopper lx (seems to be the smallest machine they make) and what H.P. do they have, I could not find that info on their web site.<br>How does it compare to the Lazer HP from Exmark in price and quality of work???? I would not use this equipement for more then 3hours a week. (approx. 4 acres of lawn to mow)<br>

Do they have a Toro dealer in your area? Toro's mid-mount ZTR's are built by eXmark. (w/ Toro deck). Toro Z's tend to be a little cheaper than eXmark. The Lazer HP is going to be expensive, even a 17hp 48&quot; is almost 6g's.

thanks for the advice, it does get kinda confusing when you speak to some of these dealers. Of course they want to sell their mowers, not someone elses.<br>but there must be some good mower out there for $3000 approx. sa previously stated i am mowing only 4 acres a week (same location) and I don't plan on mowing more.

To stay in the $3000 price range, you will need to find a walkbehind (belt drive 52&quot; or something) or a used ztr.

Why bother to buy a $3000 machine just to<br>mow 4 acres a week? It would be cheaper just<br>to sub the job and put $10 a week in your<br>pocket by just passing the paperwork.

$33,000 reasons, but it involves more then mowing weeding cleaning cutting down edges...

Seriously then, I think a new walkbehind would be a good choice. With a 52&quot; deck you should have no more than 2 hours of mowing a week.

the contract pays well i guess and it is part time i also have another job. Down the road i may get a few more small (not as lucrative) contracts, I just don't want to spend too much money on equipement that i don't really need.
