Holy crap...I fixed my old Dixion 428 today!

I say holy crap not because i managed to get that nightmare looking gaggle of shafts, sprockets, chains, & springs on this cone drive system going again. If you own/ed one of these way-outdated cone drive learn quickly how they tick & how to work on em'. No the reason for my awing is "Why i didn't dump this mower years ago"!!! Now that i drove it again for the fisrt time since a year has gone by,....i can't Fantom ever going back to it after upgrading to a Hustler Super-Z last year!!! I guess Ignorance is Bliss. Oh well i guess if i had to choose between a regular SLOOOW lawn tractor/mower & this old Dixion i'd still go with the Dixion. But boy that Dixion sure brings you back down a few notches & appreciate the types of commercial ztrs we have now!!!

Even Dixon has come a long way. Comparing the old Dixon to a new Hustler is like comparing a Model T to a new 'Vette. One hell of a difference!!
