So how does Dixie call themselves the fastest mower? Is that with the deck on?

Well, I guess that settles the fastest mower issue. Now lets see the quality of cut side by side.

I was thinking the same thing. I noticed they didn't give any actual specs.

Well, that settles my Cheetah review where I said the Cheetah wouldn't win a drag race against the Super Z. The Cheetah felt considerably slower and didn't accelerate near as fast and that was obvious in the video. Now, we need to do hillside stability and include the turf tiger!!!
