    Time to sell the Chopper. I bought it for one property this year and they are looking for someone cheaper so no point in keeping it. 2001 72" cut, OCDC, twin 20hp Kohlers that fire right up. one wheel motor has been replaced. With it comes 3 spare tires, 1 new, 1 used, 1 used on rim. Belts, blades, used wheel motor, parking brake bands, other stuff I'm forgetting. Runs and cuts awesome. Only problems are the 1 parking brake cable snapped so only the one side holds and the port side engine idle needs adjusted. It idles too low and sometimes stalls. I haven't fooled with it but it will only take a second to fix. Port side hour meter reads 6xx, starboard reads around 100 but the dealer I got it from said the low hour meter had been replaced.

    I am asking $4800obo for the mower with all spare parts which are probably worth 500-600 easy. One of these sold recently on Ebay with more hours for over 5 grand. I have the mower in winter storage so if you want to see it be serious, no joy riders. It's amazing how many people just want to take a 15+mph mower for a ride.

    I didn't know there ever made a ZTR with twin engines, now all it needs on the back is a tanker trailer.

    It's not all that bad on fuel. With so much power they aren't working hard so neither engine is really ever under a heavy load. It took me 5.5 hours to mow the property I mentioned with a 52" and it took me a hair over 2 hours to mow with this so in comparison to that you use less fuel. I figured that it uses about 2.25 gph but with the amount of work you can do in that hour you're farther ahead with this if you have properties to use it on. Also it is a dual centrifugal setup so if one engine goes down you can finish mowing with one engine.

    That thing is awesome! We don't do any cutting, but I would consider it if I had a couple of those bad boys...

    No offense but.. there's no way to test drive the machine in order to get the hydros warmed up?

    PM me if you would take dealer trade in value on the machine. I know a guy who handles a few dixies. We can arrange freight.

    Thanks

    People are welcome to test it if they are serious is what I'm saying. I don't want a bunch of yahoos showing up because they just want to drive it around the yard with no intention of buying.

    I used to have dixie similar to this... it is no joke.. it's damn fast.. too fast for residential lawns.. I lost a client on account of she thinking she wasn't getting her money's worth with me finishing the mowing of her yard in 8 minutes flat:weightlifter:. But yeah, if you have a 5 acre field.. go for it.
