    I dont understand your question, rewrite it please.:confused:

  6. I belive he is asking if he should get a Dixie because he is having trouble mowing 75 resi'a a week with his Scag.

    Now what you read on like Scag and Exmark that is straight mowing time, does not include trimming, blowing, etc..

    I belivie your problem may not be the mower, but your pricing, scheduling etc... The mower is easy to blaim, but if you have employees and they are not cutting the cheeze so to speake you have to investigate it further..

    Also if you are referring to cutting 35 acres in 1 day, trim it and blow it with a 52" mower, it aint going to happen from us telling you. Can it be mowed at full tilt all day. there are a lot of questions to ask yourself.

    See, what I got out of it is he cuts 20 acres (plus 75 residentials) and is wondering if he should have 1 guy with a scag cut the 20 acres in 2 days, or buy a dixie and have 2 guys cut the 20 acres in 1 day. BTW, he gets 60$ an acre, and cuts it 30 times a year.:D

    (I have a 2 year old.)

    I could read it. But I cant spell, so that helps me! :D Id say if you have the money, you should have a back up mower anyway! Go for it.
