Dixon Ultra 52 or Grasshopper 226V

I am a new homeowner and recently aquired 3 acres, I have called around and found these to be within my budget of $6000, I can get the Ultra 52 for around $4600 new or the 226V for $6100 new. The x-one i was $7399. So what are your opionons or maybe suggestions, Thanks, Rick

Grasshopper hands down, full parker pump and wheel motor combination transmission, better resale value, and 4 year warranty. You do no want to go down the dixon road as I was the dealer during the husqvarna buy out, it was ugly transition....

You can't beat the quality & durability of a Grasshopper. I got a 16 year old Grasshopper 718K and she is still kickin' strong!
