I'm going to help you with this.

IF ANYBODY SPOTS A TWIN ENGINE DIXIE CHOPPER call Terry at 270-703-2884 or 270-703-2883 or Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at 270-527-COPS.

They only built a few of these mowers and of the ones they did build there's even less of them left alive. It should stick out like a sore thumb.

WOW, your whole business is stolen out from under you, very sorry to hear that man!

Keep your eyes on eBay & craigslist for your stuff!

Why don't expensive commercial mowers have titles just like vehicles do?

Man, that sucks. I wonder if we can put a lo-jack device on the mower. I am always worried about something like this happening. Good luck, and when you find the idiots that stole your equipment, give them a fresh cut.

You can basicly put a lo-jack on anything and people are putting a similar device's on their kids now!
