    Was wondering if anyone has ever seen a DC toy replica? I wanted one for my office and have searched the net without any luck. I've found replicas of Cub Cadets and John Deere's ZTR's but no Choppers. Has anyone seen one or know where I might try?

    Dixie came out with 3 toy models several years ago. They were made by Geris Casting of Nelson, MN and are 1/16th scale. I have two of the models. They are the 2200 model w/60" deck & jet engine; 2200 model w/60" deck & Kohler engine. They also made a 2500 model w/72" deck & Kohler engine. I got two of the models from my Dixie dealer rep and one when I visited the Dixie factory. I gave one to my two year old grandson.

    Thanks for the info everyone. I'm planning a trip up to the factory VERY soon for the tour, do you know where I might be able to find out more about the Geris Casting toys or would you be interested in selling?? Thanks again
