Big Dog X series mowers

Anybody got any good or bad info on the larger Big Dog Mowers? Run across a good deal in one but I'm leaning to getting a Dixie Chopper. I'd like to hear from people who have actually used a Big Dog mower.

It uses the pre XR7 deck,it is basically a Xone on the larger ones and does come in a 72. The report I am hearing is that unless you need 15 MPH most like them better than the new Super Z.

Depends on what you get a good deal on, if a Dixie is a better deal then yaa but those mowers are a relic in the design department but they are still good.

Tested one 2 years ago. It was a 72 and seemed good. So that is based on 8 hours of seat time.

You should at least give Big Dog a test run! I've used the C series on about 30 clients for two seasons now and have been extremely pleased. My only problem I can recall is having to replace the ignition switch. I've always used ExMarks but this was far less expensive and cuts as well or better in my opinion... Just my two cents.

Big Dog

Well i guess I solved the problem if which mower to buy. I bought a Dixie Chopper and my buddy went and got the x series Big Dog I was looking at. I really like the looks of the Big Dog. It is clean and simple looking just like the Hustlers. Has low center of gravity and Kawasaki engine.
Hope we can give some good feedback when we get some grass to cut this spring.
