Be aware that the whole Dixon brand name will probably disappear in the next year or two. Husqvarna is simplifying their lines of mowers and consolidating everything under the Husq. name. Just this year, the Yazoo-Kees namebrand was closed out. The Dixon line is next on the chopping block.
I am sure there will be good deals offered on remaining Dixon mowers until the inventory is sold out. Husq. will continue to have parts for a while, but they may all be painted orange when you receive them, instead of blue.
I have been told that the phase out is already planned, but may take a while to complete.
