I like Dixies and have owned a few. The company has been going through some tough times in the last few years and had kind of lost their way, offering a lot of machines and options, that have not been too well thought out. Their reputation has suffered and they have lost a lot of dealers.
I would stick to their "classic" models and not buy a Silver Eagle. Just a couple of years ago, they claimed the Silver Eagle was a homeowner machine. Now, they are calling it a commercial machine. It is not a heavy duty commercial machine, but MIGHT be an entry level commercial machine.
I would also NOT get the Generac engine.
If you can find a Classic model with a Kohler engine, you will have a good, solid, long lasting machine.
