I am looking to sell or trade my 260 (25 Kawasaki) for a Dixie Chopper. The machine has 150 homeowner hours, Hydro lift, IQ (waste), has been well maintained (wash, wax, oil etc) and looks like brand new. Nothing wrong with it but I am not happy with the way the hydro works in reverse and I don't like the buffered controls. I tried a Dixie and found it to be better in that respect. Not sure what it is worth to sell outright but so far the dealer is offering 5k to trade sight unseen on a left over Silver Series Dixie. I am thinking on a trade for the 2007 model mine may be worth a bit more than 5k. His price on the 27HP Classic 60" is $7299.
