I don't, but I love those machines, I actually prefer mine over my coatsville classic.

I have the 50" 20hp I love it does just as good as a job as my coatsville, I actually prefer it and for some reason I like it better, Don't know if it is because I got it before the coatsville or what But it is my first choice no matter what. Any questions and I would be more then glad to help you

Just a suggestion, but I would recommend "stepping up" to the X2001-50 rather than a Silver Eagle. The Silver Eagle is not a commercial model. The machines are essentially the same with the exception that a X2001-50 has the dual loop hydraulic system and a manual deck engagement. The price difference at the time I purchased mine was less than $500 and the dealer threw in an OCDC on it making the difference less. Check into it. The manual engagement on the deck is less costly to repair and there is less stretching and wear on the belt. Just my opinion! :waving:

ok

At my dealer they really arent trying to sell the Dixie Chopper's. He was trying to push me more towards the Gravely and the Hustler. He even let me drive the Gravely but didnt even really talk to great of the dixies

I agree, i'd step up to a Coatesville Classic X2001-50. For a few hundred more its worth it because its a commercial machine and doesn't have an electric clutch to enguage the blades.

If your dealer won't let you drive one and is trying to interest you in other mowers them he's a bad dealer and you'd be better off going somewhere else.

its not that he doesnt want me to buy a dixie its just that he was pushing me towards a Gravely(which was cheaper and smaller)
