my dixie sp2800 is fast,smooth, i love the cut and handling of this mower but i have had multiple problems arise under warranty. belts,iddler pully,gas tank problems, starter,left wheel motor crapped out on me. the guys had me in a lowner mower for 5 weeks last season(scag wildcat 61",).anyway to all you other dixie chopper guys how happy are you with your mower. i would like to hear from someone with more than 800-1000hrs on their dixie. not interested in the silver eagle/extream machine opinions.
