    The crew that cuts the yard at my control tower uses this 72" Dixie Chopper with two engines. I finally got the around to snaping some pics. I'm not sure what size engines it has, but they look to be fairly large Kaws. Its hard to see both engines in the pics but they are side by side. Not to familar with Dixie. Looked at thier website but didn't see this model. Sorry about the picture quality but I took with camera phone. This thing is a monster.

    Here's the engines, hard to see the other one but they are identical, side by side and looks to share the same air filter.
