Do not know how widespread this is but three dealers down this way are having pump problems with the new dixie "extreme" mowers. According to these guys they are running extemely hot blowing seals and loosing power. I just though I would pass it along. I do not know if it is just a reginal thing because of the high heat that we have been having lately. I will try to find out more info on the cure for the problems. Or maybe someone out there already knows of the cure.

Hey I saw one of those in the shop today with 6 hours on it and the pump was out of it.

It is Dixie's new mower Farmboy. At this time there are only a few prototypes of them out in the field. The mower will be available for widespread purchase next spring. It is called the Xtreme "Mow"chine. It comes with a 30 horse Generac engine and does 13.5 mph at 3,600 rpm. Fuel capacity is 14 gallons and it has 26" rear tires.

I talked to a dealer here and he said that they are putting dual oil coolers on it to cure the problem.

I was under the impression that unit had dual coolers already ???
Does the Chopper run BDP 21's ? or 16's ??
Running the BDP21's you need the cooling, on the Hustler Super Z we run dual coolers (1 per pump) and a electric fan, that is on when ever the ignition key is on.
We have not had any failures that I am aware of.

I have two DC mowers that are the 2002 models xxwd5000 and the xt3000 both will only hold 12 gallon. Just wait till you run yours out and you will see that they will only hold 12 gallon. I think DC needs to work on their advertising they have alot of things wrong on paper.

I thought the old dixie's held 6 gallons of fuel per mower.

How widespread is this problem? I have read another post on here about a man in indiana who has had nothing but trouble.
